Yellow Flowers and a Final Word on ISO (Three Photographs)

The important issue with ISO is to only raise it when needed, e.g. if you need a higher shutter speed, a smaller aperture, or the light is insufficient. Some of my Nikon nature photos could not be taken without high ISOs. With my Fuji for street photography, I am also using Auto-ISO (though a smaller range), because shooting people on the street does not provide much opportunity for adjusting settings. Some time ago I heard about street photographers who put their cameras in P mode and others who set aperture and shutter speed in manual and then took shots at different ISOs (in other words bracketing their exposures). There are many approaches to handling exposure settings in most modern cameras, and there is useful automation to try out as well as the potential for a series of approaches depending on the subject of the photography. But I am convinced that Auto-ISO is becoming more useful.
