I am looking for recommendations on configuring the D800 with the SB-910. I took some Fire Academy Graduation shots recently an was not happy with some the results.

I had Auto ISO on and a lot of the shots were grainy and dark, I am thinking this was a mistake. Now some of that had to do with the room conditions, stepped ceiling and hanging lights but I just don't think I got out of the D800 and the SB-910 what I would have expected. I do know I was very happy with the battery life for the D800 and the SB-910 and I think I only had two or three cases where the flash did not fire but the camera handled the shot just fine.

I am reading the book The Nikon Creative Lighting System: Using the SB-600, SB-700, SB-800, SB-900, SB-910, and R1C1 Flashes by Mike Hagen, but it does not talk about Auto ISO or the D800.

I am working with the fire department on how best to take pictures while on scene as well with a flash during and after operations. We came to the conclusion that flashes during operations would be distracting but using a flash on clean-up and investigation pictures would be fine.

Any thoughts or suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks
Mike
