The tip for this week is ISO. What is it? It’s the old school film way of identifying the different type or speed of films. The rules of ISO still apply for digital photos. The higher the ISO the grainer the photo. Also, with high ISO you will be able to capture more movement and photograph in lower light conditions. The basic rule of thumb is to use the lowest ISO possible.
There’s always a bit of give and take. If you are shooting, for instance, your child’s sporting event outside on a bright sunny day you can bump up your shutter speed and keep your ISO low so that your photos have very little noise (grain, little dots, etc.)
If it’s dark and rainy out you may need to a bit higher ISO to compensate.
Go out and enjoy this sunshine. Play with the ISO, don’t leave it in AUTO!
A picture a day keeps the blues away!
