Remote Photography Revisited / by Denny Henry

Last week I spent some time with my family in Florida. The trip was fairly relaxed,and I had some free time to work on remote photography. 

For as long as I can remember, my grandfather has had bird feeders in his backyard.  I set up my camera at sunrise and sunset to catch the birds when they would be at their most active, and the light would be the best.

The feeders hang on a metal pole that's perfect for clamping a camera on. I used a Magic Arm to hang my camera from the pole at the same height as the bird feeders and a  PocketWizard to trigger it remotly.
