ISO Lesson

This week I am learning about ISO with my beautiful photography teachers, Aimee and Stud from It's Overflowing. I am participating in a FREE photography course and I'm learning all about my new Nikon D3100 :-)). Go on over to Aimee's and be delighted with her decorating and photography talent. You can even join in on the learning if you want to improve your photos.

It's Overflowing
Now on to this week's assignment. ISO is the third part of the exposure triangle. We've already studied about aperture and shutter speed. ISO is the camera's sensitivity to light. A higher ISO lets in more light and the result is a brighter picture but the downside is a picture that is less sharp and the picture has noise (grain.) ISO changes how quickly the sensor absorbs light. Lower numbers mean less quickly and higher numbers mean more quickly. In Program mode, as I increase the ISO, the camera automatically adjusts the aperture and shutter speed. As I increased the ISO, the shutter speed was icreased by the camera.
Now a lot of blog ladies have a nice Mister around the house to help them out with projects or moving this and that around. As a single woman, I've wanted a Mister at times but haven't found the perfect one yet. I did find a temporary Mister. He's very helpful as he participated in this assignment without a single complaint. He also graciously holds the speakers to my laptop without fussing and he nevers asks me WHY I am doing something like buying more stuff at the thrift store. I can move him and even put him up and bring him back out without question. My Mister does lack communication skills but he tries so hard to make up for that with his BEAUTY. I know...I'm a cougar. But I can't help myself when it comes to my Mister.

I know I'm showing off my Mister...but for this assignment, I see the effects of higher ISO. The Abercrombie text is less sharp and the grain is noticible.

This is where my Mister is residing (temporarily,  as he is so versatile.)

Now...Go on over to Aimee's and join in on the fun!
