Gone are the days when cameras were not able to handle the low light situation. But, camera available these days handle the low light situations brilliantly. Any camera you buy today, it is capable of making a decent picture at high ISO setting. They do allow you to control the amount of light manually. You can control the light & bring as much as necessary to make a high quality image at as low an ISO as possible.
You may often find yourself stuck in a situation where the amount of available light is too less and using flash is not the obvious option. This is the situation where a high ISO comes to the rescue. Here are some tips, you can read for using a high ISO.
1. A high ISO (800 and above) help you freeze the action. You can use a higher ISO to compensate a fast shutter speed. A high ISO can compensate 1/1000s shutter speed at just 1/250.
2. To minimize the image noise, make sure my subject is exposed brightly. Making faces nice and bright helps ensure that they will not be obscured by noise.Exposing your picture a bit brighter than you usually would will make a better looking image.
3. You can set your camera to Auto ISO. The camera can choose from more values than you can set manually. When using Auto ISO in manual mode, the exposure compensation button adjusts ISO automatically to make the picture brighter or darker.
4. If you are comfortable shooting in RAW, then do it. Post processing & post editing pictures will allow you to reduce all the noise created because of high ISO.
5. Finishing your images in black and white may just save them from looking too noisy and make them look ‘timeless’. Whenever possible, if may compensate using high ISO by converting your picture in black & white.
