What is ISO? Photography For Beginners Part 3 of 4


In continuation of this four-part series
we’re going to go over this fella the ISO also known as ISO. I’m gonna teach you what it is and how to use it If you haven’t seen the previous ones yet I’ll go ahead and link them right up here and down in the description below.
Now, are you curious about ISO because MisaCurious Hi my name is Sean Misa and
welcome to my channel where I teach you the basics of photography and
videography so if this is what you’re interested in be sure to hit the like

when I upload new videos. For the third video in this series we’re going to go over this guy the ISO For this, I would equate this to light compensation. So if
you’re going to be in the darker room we’ll need to go ahead and boost up the
ISO so that way it can bring in a little bit more light and you can better see
your subjects. Some cameras like the one I’m using the Sony A7III can actually
produce a very usable photo at higher ISO’s. So you will want to do some research
and play around with the camera to find out what’s the best usable high ISO.
Generally, I tend not to go higher than about 16 to 3200. In this room it’s kind
of bright in here, so I don’t need a high ISO what I’ll do is set my ISO at
200 that way the photo will have less noise and produce a sharper image. Now let’s try room that doesn’t have as much light Sean 1: What are you doing in here?
Sean 2: I’m trying to take a nap. Sean 1: Why here though? There’s a couch which is a lot more comfortable than that. Sean 2: Because it’s dark in here, duh!
Sean 1: Okay okay my bad I just want to take a few pictures in here and then I’ll be
right now. Thanks! It’s a lot darker in here so if I want to try and capture
a photo in here I’ll set my ISO on the higher side let’s try it at 16,000 just
to go on the extreme side. If you look at the photo now it looks a lot grainier and
you can see all that fuzziness that I was talking about. This is the digital
noise that I was referring to. Sean 2: Speaking of noise you are still too loud!
Sean 1: Okay okay my bad I’m sorry I’m almost done then I’ll be right out of here. So that’s the
drawback of using a higher ISO you do introduce a little bit more noise but in
a low light situation like this it can help out in the pinch. Now let’s get out
of here before I piss him off some more Sean 2: Thank you Now we’ve gone over all three
settings of your camera In the next video– in the next video I’m going to teach you
about the exposure meter the tool to help you understand how to balance all
three settings so you can get the best picture possible using the manual mode
and you can finally get off of that auto mode. Oh my gosh…what are you doing?
What’s with all the noise? Sean 2: I’m cooking can’t you see?
Sean 1: But I’m filming here can you wait I’m almost done Sean 2: See? You don’t like it when
somebody goes into your space and starts making all sorts of noise, do ya?
Sean 1: I said I was sorry I’m almost done, please! So be sure to LIKE this video, subscribe with the notification bell turned on So you can be

the comment section below and I’d be glad to answer them. I hope I
was able to help you understand the ISO and how to use it the best way to really
understand how it works is to go out and experiment so get out your camera play
around with the ISO and see how high you can go before you start to lose too much
quality comment down below with what camera you’re using and how high of an
ISO you found to be usable be sure to use the hashtag #MisaCurious because I
would love to see all of your photos what are you waiting for get out there
