    Lol. It's the king of quiet, but for a princely sum. I'll put up with the noise

    Haha! I only found out within the past month or two myself. I'm so accustomed to using the D750, D610, and D7200 (and my previous bodies) that have a dial to set continuous low or high. Digging through the menu just to find where to set continuous low made me I feel like I was dumpster diving. It was so awkward not knowing what I'd find compared to my other bodies. When I saw there were options, I chose a faster burst rate.

    But the question is ... will Quiet Mode work in Continuous Low if you set a faster burst rate? I'll let you play around with that one.

    A 150-600mm type zoom lets you stay back far enough that mirror slap/shutter noise doesn't seem to bother them. Also, we've found that they get a lot more bold later in the season. They're still being pretty shy with us even though they've been here two months.

    Thanks Andy! Yeah, that's been my experience also. Early in the season I can't even blink without scaring them off. But after a week or so nothing seems to phaze them. Two years ago I was sitting on my porch, holding a wired remote shutter release attached to my D5500, and one of them started using the wire as a perch. He would sit there just inches from my hand, looking around before hopping to the feeder. Eventually they didn't even mind if I moved my entire head and body to right next to the feeder to grab some selfies:

    And thanks for the advice! I don't have any that long unfortunately, but my 300mm seems to work fine - again, once they get acclimated to the noise.

    A lot of flowers are starting to bloom (finally) around here, so I decided to try my hand at some high key work. The first pic, of a daylilly, was taken in situ in my garden. I placed a whiteboard behind it, and fired the shot with my Rogue Flashbender attached to a speedlight, over-exposed two stops. The next two shots are flowers in a window box that I brought into the house (unbeknownst to my wife...shhhh). I place it in front of a soft box, with a second soft box overhead and again the speedlight attached. As usual when I place something on my work table my cat Dell decided to investigate, and then have a taste. I couldn't resist taking the shot....

    If anyone has any suggestions for this kind of high key photography, I'd welcome them. Did I carry it too far? Not far enough? All opions will be appreciated

    Love the effect Tom. For some reason I am unable to pinpoint, I find the effect seems to work even better in the first image, but all great.

    Nice of you to say Peter, thanks! I'm pretty partial to #1 also, perhaps because it's less cluttered. On the other hand, you don't see many "high key black cat eating wife's foliage" shots out there, lol...
