ISO1250 (I was trying to shoot in the dark, then added the SB700 but forgot to change the ISO :facepalm:. Luckily, the D7000 keeps its noise down fairly well, and sending to the interwebs at 800px wide doesn’t hurt either.) 1/60th, f/5.6, flash in TTL mode and bounced off the ceiling, so I bet it was zoomed to 30mm and firing to compensate for f/5.6 at 1/60th, whatever that means (and I hope to be learning soon… Sketching Light by Joe McNally arrived in the mail today, and I’ll be digging into it and Rick Sammon’s Exploring the Light after dinner, in lieu of stories on the tele (read: crime dramas via NetFlix), which is my usual after dinner-before-bed funtime).

Oh. And one other thing: A D7000+Sigma 30mm 1.4+SB-700 gets pretty flipping heavy after one-handing it for about 20 minutes, and when the shoot ends up taking closer to an hour, it makes for a sore arm… and a gnawing suspicion that I need to do some working out.
