I’m having a whole load of fun shooting at ISO 1600 with my new Olympus Pen. It’s opened a whole new world of photography to me. Although it has to be said I’d generally get a better image, and always get better image quality, shooting at a lower ISO…..what the hell! I’m getting perfectly acceptable snaps in poorly lit areas, hand held at ISO 1600.
And there are times when a low ISO, long exposure, just can’t get the shot you want. So for now, I’m enjoying the ability of taking shots that I’ve never had the equipment to take before. Here’s a slightly boring photo of the inside of an elevator with a single, rather ineffective bulb. Sure if you enlarge it enough, you’ll notice image degradation. But even when filling my 19″ laptop screen, it looks perfectly good to me!
