Yet another forgotten shoe shot. Have this fabulous picture of my friend Mitch instead.
Now that’s out of the way, I’m going to tell you a story. With a moral.
If you’ve been reading my blog, you know I purchased a camera recently. You’d also know that I’m still getting used to said camera.
The day it arrived in the post I spent several hours playing with it and googling all the things about it. This included one of the adjustable settings ; the ISO.
In my googling I found out that a higher the ISO made dim situations better, but at a cost. The cost was loss of clarity due to digital noise.
When I shot my photos today it was dim, and my lighting tests were shadowy and awful. So what did I do to rectify the situation? I raised the ISO. And what did raising the ISO do? It turned my pictures into noisy messes.
The moral of the story is don’t raise the ISO on the Sony qx10 if you don’t want a noisy photo in a dim environment.
