Success.

Posted Wednesday 11th January 2012 at 17:45 by Denny Woodthorpe
Well, I've spent another day in the hide in the back garden and had some success. I am really pleased that I have sorted out the technicalities of using two flash units "in the field". I should now be able to take it to other locations, such as the small reserve down the road.
I have at least two photos I am very happy with. I will have to get them on to the computer and "develop" them. I will then put them either into the gallery here or put a link to my Dropbox account....

Birding in SW-Finland

Posted Monday 9th January 2012 at 19:48 by mäkpe
Hello!

I've been blogging few years now and started to do so also in English last week. I'm birding all over the country but mostly at Pori, SW-Finland. Pori is one of the best birding locations in Finland and i'm lucky to get out several times per week.

I hope you'll enjoy this. Today we saw f.e. Shore Lark and Little Woodpecker in freezing (-18C) temperatures.

I am actually writing this blog entry as I sit in my hide in the garden. Luckily my wifi reaches far enough for me to do so.
I am very happy with my setup at the moment. I just wish I had a few more birds to photograph. So far this morning I have only managed to get two shots of a starling. Neither are brilliant. Exposure and focussing are both spot on, but the poses are not great. I am now going to try calling some birds with birdsong.

Well, that didn't work. I have just spent...

Underway at last.

Well, I have at last started to do some photography again. As I write this, the camera is set up outside, focused on a perch near the feeders. I have two flash guns working as slave flash and I am operating the camera from inside the conservatory by remote shutter.
It is extremely windy and it keeps raining, but everything is inside plastic bags and a rain sleeve.
So far I have got just one phot - of a goldfinch. Trouble is, it is slightly out of focus. I am focussing manually on...
