ISO .... ?

JohnO might understand ...... sadly, my knowledge doesn't extend beyond what MartyMarty showed me and that was length of exposure ......

comes from the olden days of film. ISO was the rating of the film in terms of how sensitive it is to light. So for you shooting in dark conditions u might want a higher ISO film (more sensitive to light). Terminology has carried over to digital world. Higher digital ISO setting makes the CCD sensor in the camera more sensitive to light but also (because the gain is increased) more sensitive to noise in the singal. This shows up on photos as Grain. Stupidly high digital iso settings are now available on some cameras which make them good for shooting in dark conditions but depending on the quality of the CCD (the business end of the camera) will determine how much grain shows up in the picture.

As expected, partly due to alcohol and partly due to "technospeak"; my brain just imploded.

The shots were taken by holding open the exposure by (upto) 15 seconds and frantically waving a light around behind the camera.

There are two great photographists in the club (MartyMarty & JohnO) ..... I am sure they can answer your question Shocked

...I think I need (well, I know I need) to lapse into unconciousness right now ....

See you soon !

Very Happy

Ian

The higher the ISO, the more noise you get in a shot. Its best to stick to ISO 100, or thereabouts, then use the aperture and shutter speed to get the desired exposure.

Ian, are you trying to say my photo's are crap? Neutral

According to the facebook profile (8:12pm Weds 5th May 2010) of the person who came to Bont Ddu with us recently, he is currently with her.

Thanks for your kind words Ian, but I don't think I am close to Marty's creativity and consistency yet and you have got your fair share of quality photos.

Oh and no body has said about using a tripod. Idea
