Tobias at the Beach looking out our patio door. Roll in Bed used as a reflector behind him. D200/ISO 800Lately I am using available light much more than flash. This is because of a few things. Part of this is I feel I need to revisit the fundamentals of exposure again. I need to keep my highlights under control, and other things. Plus its nice to just see the effects of light without having to imagine it ahead of time.
major part of the trip I probably would have brought one.
do care about funky color shifts. My older camera starts shifting at ISO 800 in shadow and by 1600 it is shifting everywhere. ISO 1600 is also the top of its range, some of my recent shots have been done at ISO 3200 and beyond. True, I could have used a tripod, or a strobe, but, well, in the example I chose to post here I just know I would have woken Tobias up messing with extra gear.
