Waxwings return.....

Waxwings have made an annual appearance, outside our home, in Cottingham, East Yorkshire, for the last 10 years. This years flock was greater than 50 birds. Waxwings are a welcome visitor from the far north and could have travelled from as far away as northern Russia. 2011 has been a boom year for these migrating birds, probably in part due to poor berry crops in Scandanavia.

New Strobe Stands


Went out for the first time with 2 SB800s and strobe stands. It was a very, very cold day, so time was limitted.
The light was dull and grey with low cloud PERFECT!
Set the D200 to manual, with a shutter speed of 1/125, iso 200, image Raw, matrix metered, single spot focus, f2.8
Set the SB800s to TTL with a zoom of 105mm then remote mode, one used as a "Key Light" & the other as a "kicker Light"
Shadow noted from the pillor the key light should have been moved, slightly
