Osprey Shots

Two shots of my dependable "model" taken at the Baytown Nature Center recently. These shots were taken with my Oly E-3 @ f10, 50-500 Sigma @ 500MM and FL56F flash with a Better Beamer flash extender and finished in CS3.

Nice shots Larry! To my memory these may be your best shots of this guy so far.

Did you use a tripod or hand hold?

Nice capture on both shots Larry. I have to agree with Barry as to being your best to date. These look like tripod shots over hand held to me. If they are hand held you did very well.

Most of the light appears to be natural, especially the head. If you used the Better Beamer as indicated I would expect the chest feathers to have more light and detail in them. The trick with the Beamer for Tim T. is starting at -3 stops in ETTL and 50mm zoom setting. If you cannot resolve the light by going up in stops, try going to 85mm or 105mm on the zoom setting on the flash.
