I first started trying to photograph hummingbirds in 2003 with on-camera flash, using the flash as the predominate light source. In 2004, I bought some cheap flash heads on eBay, made some foam core softboxes and began trying to get "portraits" of these little birds. This method immediately raised issues concerning the backgrounds that I am still trying to solve. My ongoing results are in the galleries below.
