FL Birds Portfolio

We’re just back from 12 days of photographing birds in Florida. It was an absolutely great time with great birds! We wanted to see for ourselves how the birds would bounce back from the hurricanes and it was great to see them, perhaps more than 2017, in the locales we love. I’ve posted a small portfolio of my images, only 35 of the 4k I came back with. I’ll post my new all-time favorite at some later time. All these shots were taken with the D5, 800mm and at times with it’s matched 1.25x. I was delighted to see North Beach, Ft DeSoto back to how it was a decade ago! Lots and lots of waders and now it has it’s own “barrier island” that the shorebirds cover. The rookeries like Venice were quite active which was great to see.

Square Sun – LED Love

LED lights have come so far in design and down so much in price! The new Genaray Square Sun is a great example of both. I wrote about the Genaray LED Bi-Color Light kit which is a killer portable kit. But when you want studio power and I mean power and flexibility in an LED, the Square Sun is gorgeous! This bad boy weighs in at 13lbs with its 15″ by 15″ LED light on a massive yoke for ultimate stability. Its 100watt output is scalable with the dimmer switch with color temps from 3200k to 5600k (photo below). The Square Sun has built-in DMX512 technology. This allows you to control the light’s settings remotely from a DMX lighting control console. You can buy the Square Sun by itself or in a kit (great value) which is what I highly, highly recommend! It comes with AC power supply but can run off batteries as well. It’s meant for heavy use so have a built-in fan. The barns doors can...
