Natalie's fuzzy baby chick

fuzzy baby chick, originally uploaded by Carl's Photography.

We received our shipment of baby chicks from McMurray's. This is a 1-day old baby chick. This is Natalie's baby chick. The chicks were hatched on Saturday afternoon and arrived at the post office in Rochester by noon on Sunday. We made a second trip into town just to pick them up. We transfered them to the little swimming pool we have and dipped their beaks in water and showed them the food. The kids and Becky spent about 2 hours sitting there playing with them! Lots of 'peep peep peep ...' in the air!

Strobist info: SB-900 into Impact 60" reflected umbrella camera left and a bit above. SB-600 into 45" Impact shoot through umbrella camera left and behind chick. SB-800 into Wescott 43" shoot through umbrella camera right and behind chick. Fluorescent light banks left and right (4 foot, 2 bulbs, 40 watts each, 5000k color temp). Triggered with pop up flash on my D80 with commander menu setting power output. 150 watt equivalent CFL bare flood light bulb to right of chick for a bit of orange side light (at - 2 to 3 ev).

Taken with a Nikon D80.
