Letting go of low ISO - a follow-up

Hi all,

I wrote in my last post about my obsession with ISO 100 and how I felt it was hindering my photography.

There are times when, I’m pleased to say, I’m correct. I’ve been back to the zoo and used auto ISO (max 800) and it allowed a much faster shutter speed which in turn allowed much sharper results.

Another thing learnt at the zoo – use shutter priority and ramp it up. That combined with a more liberal use of ISO really allowed me to achieve much better results.

I promise I won’t make too many ‘tips and hints’ posts, but thought I’d share this in case anyone else could take anything away from it.

Be good, or if you can’t, be good at it ;)
