I want to try a couple of new things- photographing long exposure black and white photography for one. I have so many ideas, but first I need to get a Lee super stopper filter, filter holder and ring adaptor. Next week I'm going to order this equipment. I also want to photograph hummingbirds. This is challenging to get the rapidly beating wing sharp. I got some shots of a hummingbird this week and even though the wings were blurred, the photos were nice. I used a wide open f/4 aperture and continuous high speed drive mode. I put a better beamer on my speedlite and waited for the hummer to return. He never did. This weekend I'm going to try again. I'll use the speedlite with the better beamer
and single shooting mode- high speed continuous mode can melt the speedlite. If this doesn't work, I'll have to get a couple more speedlites.
I'll figure it out; I enjoy these photo projects and challenges.
