Re: Am I relying on SSS too much?

If you have a stationary subject, I think SSS works wonders.  I shoot a lot of wildlife and use shutter speeds well below the historical 1/focal length recommendation.  Shooting at 300mm, I don't hesitate to fire off three or four frames at 1/40th to 1/50th expecting to keep the best.  In fact, I think this is where SSS provides the most benefit.  If I have a tree to brace against, I'll even shoot at 1/20th or slower.  I generally pick slow shutter over high ISO.  Film is cheap these days
