Yeah that's a tough habit for sure! I tend to go A priority, then make ISO adjustments depending on the situation, and just remind myself before entering shadowed areas to boost it up. Walk around starting at ISO400, then if I have a perched in good light, I'll drop down to 200, and before entering darker areas, up to around 800-1250. The biggest mistake I've made on this was not adjusting it after getting a certain shot I wanted and being excited about it, only to miss the next shot. But, that's what makes this fun, the chase/challenge

Thats why I've been so messed up, I change iso and shutter without ever looking up from the camera when I'm shooting something interesting. take away your top wheel and it all goes out the window.

I've had many good times with Mink... except two years ago when they eat my prized Muskrats. After all the training to look pretty and everything. I had to lay off the hair stylist.

He still paused to make sure the coast was clear. And very true.. I reset the camera to a ready for action state after shooting something else.

It makes such a huge difference to the image.. even the beaver looks way cooler with dry fur. you have to blow dry them before the shoot. just sayin


A touch of gel goes a long way.. :p

Ya most times they don’t me either... that’s for sure. That was not a normal mink I don’t think, he was very easy going. Since then I’ve had 10 give me the finger and disappear.

Thanks Mike. I’ve only seen a few in the wild myself. I got pretty excited when I saw him this morning. It was an overcast day and I wanted to dial in +1/3 exposure comp but in the heat of the moment I managed to dial in -1 2/3. :oops: The images out of the camera were badly underexposed. Camera raw helped a lot but the image still has too much noise.

Reading your post i find it interesting that you dial in +EC... it’s just something I never do, have not done. I use EC to cut the light / highlights, of course the camera increases shutter to do so. +EC would decrease shutter I would guess. I’m I thinking right on that. Not that it’s wrong or anything... I just have never wanted to do it. Crazy I know.

I just have never wanted to do it. Crazy I know.

Dialing in +1/3 EC is something I started doing on cloudy days, low light situations. For the past few weeks I've began to use it less and less though. The day I saw the mink it was pretty dark, low clouds and looking like rain any minute. I figured +1/3 wouldn't hurt. I never thought about increasing EC would result in a decreased shutter.

Looking at the mink images on the camera LCD preview screen I realized my mistake of dialing in -1 2/3 EC instead of +1/3 EC. After I corrected and set +1/3 EC the mink never showed again so I didn't have any before/after images to compare. The images I did have were really dark and looked beyond salvage. Later when loading them into Photoshop camera raw they looked a bit lighter. When I selected AUTO on the camera raw edit screen the image was lightened up and appeared pretty much normal. I was surprised how much of an improvement there was.

You've given me something to think about and I really appreciate your input. I need all the help I can get. :-)

My fav time to shoot Mink is at ice out time in the spring, you get these holes in the ice the animals are just completely attracted to and they will tolerate our intrusion a little better.
I think the 7DII can be pushed up a long way and tend to shoot dark in some situations. Sometimes I need the speed to eliminate the motion blur its the real killer of images. When its down to business time I don't want any whites in the burnt zone and the 7DII loves to go to far, I guess they all do.

Some of my best stuff has come from this dark RAW files for just this same reason, even in super white conditions I tend to shoot on the dark side. Seems I'm always trying to make a f5.6 lens look like a f4 or better.

It obvious by your Flickr that you don't have much to learn from me.

If you think Mink are tough your gona have to try your hand at Mr Pine Marten... Its like trying to shoot a speeding bullet.
