TTL (Through-the-Lens) makes shooting a breeze. Point the camera at your subject, set the exposure values in-camera and the amount of light hitting your subject is dynamically determined by a pre-flash emitted by your TTL-enabled light before each shot. Unfortunately, using TTL has notable drawbacks, as illustrated in the video above.
 
When shooting in a studio or under very controlled conditions, using manual flash settings will ensure consistent exposures throughout the session. Alternately, when shooting under circumstances with quickly changing ambient light and/or subject-to-flash distances, the benefits of TTL will be very much appreciated. [Sean]

My favorite camera mode is manual mode. But, when lighting conditions are changing rapidly, it is often helpful to get the camera involved in the decision-making process via auto exposure. When using auto exposure, most often I'm still using manual mode, but with auto ISO being selected.
 
In auto exposure modes, the camera must be able to guess the proper exposure, or close enough that the result can be adjusted to perfection during post-processing without detriment to image quality (increased noise for example). When photographing deer, a subject rather neutral in relative brightness, in their natural environment, the camera often gets the auto exposure right. Wildlife photography is usually very challenging, involving unpredictable action and fast camera work, and having the camera take care of the exposure can make the difference between getting a great shot and getting nothing. With the exposure being determined by the camera, I can focus on getting the shot.
 
When the camera can guess the exposure with good accuracy and auto ISO in manual mode is being used, the shutter speed alone can be rapidly changed as needed to produce a sharp image. For example, if an animal that has been in fast motion (requiring a fast shutter speed) pauses and stares at something while motionless, a quick roll of the top dial can increase the exposure times to allow lower ISO settings be taken advantage of.
 
One thing I need to focus on is not getting too close to my wildlife subjects. While getting close enough to wildlife is a common challenge, being over-successful, getting too close, can sometimes be an issue. Wildlife subjects often need some space around them in the frame, some breathing room. Getting closer means a stronger background blur, but in this case, it meant not enough breathing room around the mule deer buck. Fortunately, Photoshop helped me increase the canvas size, adding some background to the perimeter of this image.
 
Another teaching point illustrated here is the catchlight in the buck's eye. In practically all images containing an eye, catchlights will add positively to the result, giving sparkle and life to the subject. Catchlights can be created with flash lighting, but when photographing wildlife, the sun, or at least the bright sky, is my favorite catchlight source as it usually provides the most natural appearance.
 
For catchlights to happen, something bright, often the sun/sky, must be able to reflect in the subject's eye. Think about the animal's rounded eye reflecting such and the camera angle needed for that to happen. The subject's head position can make a difference with a raised head increasing the chances for catchlight reflections. Your position can also make a difference. The lower your position relative to the subject, the more likely you are to get catchlights reflecting the light source. When the sun is the catchlight source, the lower the sun, the better the odds are that it will reflect in the eyes. The more exposed the sky is, the better the likelihood of a reflection.
 
In this example, I had a catchlight. However, with just a slight amount of the sky reflecting in the top of the deer's eye, it was a weak one. Using an exposure adjustment layer in Photoshop, I added a mask that was entirely black (not affecting the image) except for the little catchlight and then slid the exposure adjustment slider slightly to the right to increase the brightness, affecting only the catchlight. This tiny adjustment made a noticeable difference in the final result.
 
I'm always looking for an entertaining or at least unusual behavior to capture in wildlife images. This buck's large rack added points to the entertainment factor, but its behavior was rather boring — it was mostly feeding. While smelling the small plant is not dramatic behavior, it does speak to this animal's keen sense of smell and its ability to communicate in this way. The huge rock behind the buck provided an out-of-the-norm background for the image and the position of the antlers allowed all of the points to be seen. Thus, this image was my pick from this session.
 
A reminder: there is only one opening remaining for the September elk in rut photo tour in Rocky Mountain National Park. While elk are our primary subject, we'll be opportunistic, taking advantage of other wildlife that avails itself as illustrated here.

From Pelican:
 
Torrance, CA - Users no longer have to choose between the versatility of the TrekPak divider system or the protection of Pick N Pluck foam with the new Pelican Hybrid Cases. Available as a new standard offering in either the Pelican 1510 or Pelican Air 1535 Carry On Case, the interior features both the TrekPak system and the classic Pick N Pluck manually customizable foam.
 
“This new, extremely versatile configuration offers users the best of both worlds and a host of new organizational options,” said John Luna, Director of Commercial/Government Product Management, Pelican Products, Inc.
 
TrekPak Divider System
 
Case owners simply need to lay out their gear the way they wish for it to appear in the case, measure and cut the divider sections, and lock them in place with the provided U-pins. Each divider section is manufactured from a waterproof, closed-cell foam that is laminated to a rigid corrugated plastic panel. They are light weight, strong and almost impossible to tear or shred. Additional divider panels are available separately to switch up the layout any time.
 
Pick N Pluck Foam
 
Classic and simple Pick N Pluck foam is pre-scored and cubed for easy manual customization and offered standard in almost all Pelican case models. Replacement foam is available separately when the interior layout changes.
 
The Pelican Air 1535 Carry On case is engineered with a next generation polymer construction that is up to 40% lighter than standard Pelican Protector Case brand cases, yet still stands up to the harshest conditions on earth. It also features a removable rugged ID card holder. Since its introduction in 2004, the Pelican 1510 Carry On case has been the industry standard for travelling with sensitive equipment that users don’t want to check in. Its extremely tough polymer construction protects mission critical equipment in worst case scenarios.
 
Both cases sport a sturdy pull handle coupled with smooth stainless steel ball bearing wheels for effortless transport, a polymer O-ring for a dust and water-resistant seal, and an integrated automatic pressure equalization valve that keeps moisture out and prevents vacuum lock, ensuring the case is easier to open at any altitude. Available in black only, both cases are backed by the Pelican Products Legendary Guarantee of Excellence. Pelican Air 1535 Carry On case with hybrid foam MSRP is $324.95 US and the Pelican 1510 Carry On Case with hybrid foam MSRP is $299.95 US.
 
B&H has the Pelican 1535AirTPF Wheeled Carry-On Case with TrekPak Dividers and Pick-n-Pluck Foam available for preorder.

When a great animal is found, staying with it can lead to great images. Sometimes, it can lead to a lot of great images.

Canon has released its 2Q 2019 financial results and you can download the presentation material here. Looking through the material, we can see that sales in Canon's Imaging Systems are down compared to last year and its previous projection.
 
Canon 2Q Financial Results Screenshot

Regarding the data, Canon notes:
"In Imaging System, we expect sales and profit of interchangeable lens cameras to decline, due to the continued impact of mainly entry class DSLR market contraction. However, in the area of mirrorless cameras, where we are focusing our energy, the effects of expanding our lineup will continue to lead to sales growth."
Canon has been impressing us with its mirrorless system releases, so continued growth in that segment is certainly a reasonable assumption.

From the B&H YouTube Channel:
 
At B&H’s Optic 2019, photojournalist and New York attorney Richard P.

If you’re a photographer interested in the best ways to protect your photos, this is a video you need to watch.
 
Richard P. Liebowitz, Esq., is a New York attorney who focuses on intellectual property law related to copyrights at Liebowitz Law Firm, PLLC.

From the Aurora Aperture YouTube Channel:
 
One Set of Filters for Every Lens
 
Aurora Aperture Adapter Mount Format Filter (AMF) filter is a revolutionary filter format that works for all DSLR lenses on popular mirrorless mount adapters. You will only need one set of filters for all your adapted lenses, no more multiple sets of filters or step-up rings, or complicated and bulky square filter systems.
 
The AMF drop-in filters work extremely well with ultra wide-angle lenses, especially those that have a protruding front element and are without front filter threads. Those types of lenses require a bulky filter adapter paired with very large filters. They are inconvenient to carry around and are unfriendly to your wallet. The AMF Filters is currently available through a kickstarter.com crowdfunding campaign.
