The pics are from a Sony W300 w a Vivitar remote slave flash. You can see the flash coverage at 3 separate distances with light coloured Elk as the subject. Pic #004 was a bonus daytime pic for me, which I cropped and edited. The cam is set to AUTO everything and ISO set to 200. This was upon Ralph's recommendation on setting the cam to ISO 200 to increase the flash coverage. Boy that did the trick alright. Now that I can see actual field results with these settings. I'll use this for future sets when needed. Such as Black Bear sets or with subjects further from the camera, as in pic #003. Setting up the off-board flash angle in the daytime is impossible. So you pretty well have to wait until you get night pics from the set to make adjustments.

So what I did was reset the ISO to 100 in order to bring down the brightness. Then I tilted the flash upwards a bit, it was aimed too low and blowing out the foreground. The trade-off with the ISO set to 100 is that it will be subject to motion blur at night if there is much movement. I don't think that will be a problem with this set because this is where the Elk like to stop and graze on the weeds. A moving bull will suffer from motion blur, we'll see.

I'm always so impressed with the pics from that camera. Looks like you nailed it pretty good with the lighting as well.

Lookin good Gary. I don't think you'll have much of an issue with motion blur at night since the flashes strobe is so fast.

That's good to know JDH.
In these pics I did have the flash aimed too low. That concentrated the flash to the lower part of the frame, blowing out the colours. Now that I have raised it up a bit. The foreground should tone down considerably. The pic of the calf standing behind the log is the degree of lighting I want to get in the foreground of the frame. Redirecting the flash upwards and stepping the ISO down to 100. Should do the trip, at least that's what I'm gunning for, we'll see.
