Photography:

  • I have been doing a lot of work for family and friends lately, such as a trip to Estes Park and a visit with wild sunflowers.
  • I wanted to share a new podcast with you called Pocket Lenses. This is a great podcast for learning photography on smart phones and compact cameras.
  • This episode I will talk about ISO. Here are the concepts to keep in mind when setting ISO:
    • ISO numbers range from 100-6400+, depending on the camera. The lower the ISO, the slower your camera will absorb light.
    • Use low ISO numbers for settings that are already naturally bright. Use high ISO numbers for indoor or dark settings.
    • The higher the ISO, the more grain and noise you will get in your final image.
