I photographed this beautiful hummingbirds last month at my sister's house. My goal was to photograph the birds in the shade, using at least 5 strobes pointed at the bird, in the area around the feeder, and one strobe pointed at the painted background. The idea is to provide even light on the bird, and a non distracting background.

I learned the lighting from a book by Linda Robbins called The Hummingbird Guide. Her method is to use a minimum of 5 to 6 strobes, a supplied background (which you have to provide), and photograph the birds in the shade so that you don't have to overpower the sunlight. When you use multiple strobes on a subject in the shade you can use lower power settings for each flash which results in shorter flash durations which means it freezes the wing blur. I used 5 Yongnuo strobes to light the birds and a 6th flash to light the painted background. The strobes were all at about 1/16th power, in manual mode, and were triggered by a Yongnuo RF-603N., and you can see the EXIF info on the side. Down below in the first comment you can see a picture of the lighting setup that I used for this picture.

I've taken quite a few hummingbird pictures which are in my creatively titled Hummingbirds Album.

I photographed this flowers outside today where it was back lit by the midday sun. I converted it to black and white using Nik Software's Silver Efex Pro 2.0.

Other black and white images that I've attempted are in my Black and White album.
