Making The Most of Higher ISO

Making The Most of Higher ISO | Photography Tips & Tutorials | Scoop.it
It’s very easy to overlook one of the biggest advantages of digital cameras over film cameras – namely the ability to change ISO on the fly.

If you wanted a faster ISO or ‘film speed’ on a film camera you literally had to put in another roll of film. With digital cameras you can choose from the whole range, from low ISOs (say 100)...
