Tonight's exercise was shooting at a low ISO rating (mostly 200) to reduce the noise I was seeing yesterday at 3200. I used my SB-800 flash set at TTL, the lens was set for its longest zoom, 200mm, and shutter at 1/250th which is the default for the D300 with the speedlight. I also severely cropped the images, except for three which are mostly of the big cedar tree with the tiny birdie perched in it. All were done with me manually adjusting the focus, and trying not to scare off the hummingbirds. As usual, click on the image to see the set.
