Comment:I have just begun using flash for birds and would appreciate some feed back on my technique. My wife and I had a few hours to spare waiting for fight home from Townsville and went to Townsville common. It was about 2:00pm and bright sunshine, a time of day I would normally avoid.This photo was taken of the Leaden Flycatcher in the shade. The camera was set on manual with exposure about 2 stops below centre and flash on ETTL with -⅔ FEC. Am I on the right track?
Equipment:Canon 1Dx Mark11, EF 500mm f4, + 1.4 extender, 1/200, f9, ISO160, Canon 600 EX-RT flash,
monopod.Processed with DPP4 and bird sharpened in Photoshop.
Location:Town Common, Townsville (Queensland)
Keywords:female
