Photographing hummingbirds has gone from experiment to obsession. That didn’t take long!
Yesterday I set up my camera with Magic Lantern firmware and shot away. Today I made more modifications. The lens is longer, bringing me closer (though these are still cropped images). The light is a little better.
My shutter speed still isn’t fast enough! 1/1000 second doesn’t freeze the hummingbird’s wings.
If I speed up the shutter and leave the aperture where it is I’m going to start adding too much noise. Where’s the balance? Still to be determined.
Here are the best four of 136.
