Part 2/6 of my month long trip in Costa Rica leading a few photography workshops.
We had some really nice opportunities throughout the tours and many wonderful images were made. Costa Rica is one of those countries that is just so pleasant to visit.
During one of the days we took a short trip down the road to a new spot for feeder set ups. As much as I love the challenge of rainforest photography I always love a good opportunity to “set up” a shot. Selecting a good perch, background and just the right amount of fill flash allowed us all to get some sweet shots!
Each of the two trips that I led this year had slightly different itineraries from here.
On one group we traveled up hill toward a great little lodge in the higher country. Here we focused our efforts on the amazing variety of hummingbirds at this elevation.
We did a lot of multi-flash hummingbird photography and came away with some really nice results.
When I saw a few Chestnut-capped Brush Finches lurking around the lodge I couldn’t help resist setting up a nice mossy perch for them.

If you think you might like to join me in Costa Rica next year be sure to send me an email as soon as possible.
All the best!
