Hovering Hummer by papatheo Hovering Hummer by papatheo
This little female Ruby Throated hummingbird is one of the frequent visitors to our garden and feeding stations.

This is my first time shooting with remote and multiple lights.
The set-up that I am using here is:
Remote trigger transmitter.
Camera on tripod with a receiver trigger on the camera.
Two strobes with receiver triggers on tripods.

I have the camera pre-focused. Now I can be anyplace within view of the target... and with the remote trigger I can photograph the hummers... even from inside the house.

We got the Yongnuo Speedlites [under $70 each] and strobe triggers [set of 2 for under $30]!!! It all works quite nicely... love the triggers... I can even shoot from in the house or from a different part of the yard!!! Sorry this is so late!
