I know these are nothing spectacular but I have been working on learning aperture, shutter speed and ISO settings and how the different combinations will effect picture outcomes, Here are two pics I took and im just looking to see that I am even in the ballpark with proper settings. I touched up colors on both pics in LR just to get some of the ornaments to "pop" a little. First pic is with ISO 100, shutter 1/2 second and f5.6, I had camera on a tripod: Second pic is ISO 100, shutter of 2.5 sec f11: Now my understanding is a lower ISO the less grainy a pic will be, so I would assume it is best to shoot at as low of an ISO as possible as long as you can compensate for the darkness of the photo by adjusting f stop and shutter speeds correct? Like I said I know the pics arent artsy fartsy or cool in any way im just learning my way around the settings. Thanks for any input.
