Working on improving your skills is something you should do on a daily basis. If not daily, weekly or at the least, monthly. It also means going back to basics.
Last week, I went back to basics with aperture. This week, I’m going back to basics with ISO.
The assignment at DigitalCamFan was take one photograph with your lowest and highest ISOs.
One of the reasons I purchased the D600 is for its low-light capabilities.
Since most of my shooting is indoors, (don’t mind the mess) I don’t have the best of light situations and my usual target is constantly moving, I’m almost always shooting at ISO 6400. I love my camera just for that. But…
As you saw, at ISO 6400, you start noticing some grain.
While my ISO 6400 photos are acceptable to me, I still prefer a more butter-y look. I’ll be working on reducing my indoor ISO a bit to see if I can’t find a good balance.
Do you shoot with a preferred ISO?
