We're taking ISO to the limit with our cameras. This week's challenge was to max out the ISO and see the effect it had on our ability to get a proper exposure.
The photos submitted were noisy and grainy as all hell, but we weren't afraid of making a wee bit of noise.
What this challenge was meant to show is:
a) Noise/Grain is not something to be petrified of with our images. An image can have a bit of it and still be a beautiful capture.
b) To see how a high ISO setting affects setting our aperture and shutter speed.
This was also to round out the exposure triangle. Combined with the past two challenges we now have covered the 3 settings needed for us to shoot in full manual comfortably. So from here on out everyone should be shooting full manual for the most part (on occasion I'll slip into aperture priority mode depending on the nature of the shoot, but very rarely).
