One of the world's smallest primates (D800 with fill flash)
8

Yesterday, I captured some images of a cotton-top tamarin--on of the smallest primates on the planet.  This animal weighs less than 1 pound!

I find it challenging to photograph the tamarins.  Exposures can be challenging as the animal has both bright white and dark black colors on it. They are fidgety and seem to be constantly moving.  And, they are housed in an indoor exhibit with low overhead lighting.

I decided to use my SB-900 flash unit (-1.3 EV) in TTL mode to add some fill light.

Thanks for looking...
