Sam, Exposure, High ISO

Having survived the chimney drop, I grabbed Sam for a quick portrait, picking the big door as a background and a modest amount of north light providing the lighting.

Above you see the detail in the image, click on picture to get 100% view.

The lesson appears to be that you can use higher iso's but you need a well exposed image, nicely detailed shadows that won't need further "opening" in Photoshop. Frankly it had never occured to me before to use ei. 800 with my 1Ds2 but I'm very pleased with the result.
