D. Astorga will present a program at the October meeting
for TexNEP where he will show members how to photograph
hummingbirds using Multi-flash setups. Hummingbirds flap
their wings at a rate of 50 to 200 times per second, by
using short flash durations in conjunction with a high flash
ratio he will demonstrate how to “freeze” the
hummer’s wings. Hector will show the necessary equipment
and techniques needed to obtain good results in photographing
these fast birds.
Hector is a multi-award winning nature photographer based
in South Texas. His work covers the wildlife and landscapes
of North America. To view more of his work visit his website
