Birds of prey on a Nikon D800 with 200-400/4 II

Posted Image

Steven Hyatt's photographs of birds of prey in a studio environment - as a guest post to NikonRumors.

Steve is a gifted wedding and portrait photographer in Mt. Pleasant / Charleston, South Carolina that set up a black-box studio at the Center For Birds of Prey in Awendaw, SC - and made some great captures with the 200-400/2 on a D800. He shot with Paul C. Buff Einstein's (I got a set this spring, and love-love-love them) against black seamless.

Great stuff. Even more happily waiting the D800 (have the e's on backorder...).

Hope everyone is enjoying a wonderful (if slightly toasty) summer -

Pardon!!! Where I am it has been raining for weeks and weeks and weeks and the temperature is nothing to write home about :angry: .
We are told it won't get any drier till you Americans do something about the blocking high all over North America which (together with the one over Russia) has deflected the jet stream south so that it is dragging a succession of Atalantic lows over the country. :help:

Sorry, Dave: I'll get right on that...! Raining here, too - and bloody HOT (was 106 last week, several days over 100) - and afternoon-to-very-early AM thunderstorms predicted for the next 10+ days... great for the reservoirs... somewhat less so for quality-of-life.

On the other hand: we were born to the first century of air conditioning :sungum: with indoor privies :D, hot-and-cold running showers ;), really-frosty-brewski's (apologies to the Brits) :good:, and the ability to shoot inside without flash-powder :), outdoors with digital infrared (LOVE those clouds) :mosking: - and doesn't it all beat the alternative anyway (picture whatever microbes may-or-may-not lie beneath the frozen poles of the perhaps-formerly-inhabited-but-now-long-bleak-Martian-landscape)...

Looks like Eden - if a slightly-Thai (HOT/RAINY) version of Eden - to me.
