great picture

Behind The Lens

Location
Photo is taken at my backyard, Sherman Oaks CA
Time
It was early morning
Lighting
Early light shooting creates an atmosphire suitable for motion blur photography
Equipment
Hand held Nikin d5100 with 55-300 mm nikkor lens, VC on taken from a hide about three feet away!
Inspiration
I am an activist for hummingbirds in southern california, i research their migration patterns and also a great advocate for poeple here in the southland to grow plants and put out feeders in order to ensure a continuas hummingbirds feeding for decades to come
Editing
I use Photoshop Lightroom, to asjust contrast light and to crop into place
In my camera bag
I carry in my bag the D-7200 camera , and three lenses: 150-600 mm Tamron lens, 70-300mm Tamron lens, and for wide angle shots I use my 17-50 mm 2.8 Sigma lens.
Feedback
To capture the moment one will need prior research of hummingbirds whereabouts be in the right place preferably close to their food source feeders and plants be patient and dint expect to get a winning shot in every shooting session and keep on trying use 9 points contentious focus if available for moving birds, good luck!
