[Infographic] How to Work with ISO
We’ve just about all run into ugly, distracting noise in our photos at some point. The culprit here is high ISO. It makes the sensor more light-sensitive, and this can brighten dark photos, but it also produces noise. So take a look at how to work with ISO right.
ISO is one of the three sides of the exposure triangle, alongside aperture and shutter speed. By raising the ISO, you get a brighter picture even in dark conditions. But you’ll also get a picture that’s noisier. That’s why it’s important to find a suitable compromise. Meanwhile, appropriate ISO values vary depending on conditions, the camera you’re using, and how your pictures will be used.
