Hello bird photographers who are much more talented then I. Its that time of year where the woodcocks are out displaying at the park near my house. I really want to photograph one. I know where they are and when they come out. That is the issue. Finding them in the daylight is pretty much impossible, but in the evening, I know right where they are. I will obviously need to use a flash, and Im looking for tips about what I should set my camera at for this. I found out I need to stay in 'one shot' focus mode so i can use the AF assist light on the flash. I had the flash set to manual mode ( 550EX II ), zoom set to 105mm ( max ) and power at like 1/2 with a shutter of 1/100 and iso 800 i think( 400mm @ f5.6 ). the light seemed good, but focus was a big struggle for me. ( i learned about one shot and af assist after i got home ) Anything else i should know or be doing? The birds show up between 6:00 and 6:40 pm, sunset is right at about 6 pm currently, so im working with very little light.
