wow, that's wicked!

taken from an interesting spot, ha.
:) nice work!

.. since you seem to know what you're doing with photography, i wonder if i could ask for a litle help, i'm new at it, ha.. >.<
i was wondering what ISO stood for?
i have the setting on my camera but i don't really know what it does, aha.

Thanks v much Anna / Deenie whatever :D

Welcome on board the good ship, and what does ISO stand for? Well it's acknowledged as being the "International Standards Organisation" - a bunch of Tefal-heads who, well, set standards for things.

In photography we all used to use films right? Well different films showed different sensitivity to light and the ISO people were called in to set down standards that films could be measured against which would allow the photographer to know what exposure the film needed.

So they dictated that a film rated at ISO100 would require twice as much light as one rated at ISO200. That's why scales on cameras go 100,200,400,800 etc - each increment implies a doubling of light required.

Nowadays we don't use film but still our digital cameras are rated on this scale - we can fine tune the sensor to be more sensitive to light, handy when it's a bit gloomy (think Nov - March), but the trade off is a reduction in colour and sharpness (as with film incidentally).

My advice ? Set it at it's lowest rating to get the best quality shot unless there is little light in which case move it up a few to perhaps 400. You should shoot the same picture at all settings first so you know what the results will be like.

Hope that helps - there is more reading here should you need it :highfive:

yay, i think i get it! :D

i wanna take an art course next year and i think it touches on photography.
or, i can take a different course and do a full unit on it ha.

that'll probably help for either, so thankyou very much! ^^

No worries ! Oh, and you might see the same concept referred to by the letters ASA which was the old scale before ISO came along.

Remember also that by taking a picture with a longer exposure (shutter speed) you avoid having to raise the ISO and save quality. But longer exposures mean more blur unless a tripod is used.

Everything is a trade off between the various settings and options your camera offers. Some cameras offer very few options like this, and so aren't really great learning tools, whereas Pro-spec equipment might offer too many damn options!!

Go take a course, or at least get a basic photography book from your local library. Don't worry if it doesn't have a lot of digital stuff in it, that's for later. Cameras are still the same as ever, and use the same controls as 20 years ago.

Ask me anything you like and I'll try to help.

thankyooou! i appreciate the help.

yeah i was thinking of getting a book actually, just to give some extra tips and stuff.
i guess it's all about experimenting to start off with.. :)
i hope one day i'll be really good at photography and art. ^^

I must say, this is one of THE BEST pictures of the Eiffel Tower that I have EVER seen. You are an amazing photographer and I think the greyscale suits the mood of the picture perfectly!!! Definate :+fav:!!!

Well thanks a lot, I'm deeply flattered and not a little embarrassed by the attention this has brought. Like being a celebrity haha.

Thanks again :highfive:
