Shooting in low light today I was pushing the ISO levels to 2500, mainly to see how the camera performed. An essential component of shooting at high ISO levels is understanding the relationship between ISO and exposure, I am not sure if I am there yet with this discipline as most of my shots were overexposed. I started using centre weighted metering then moved to matrix. I thought the matrix metering gave me better histogram results than center weighted all though I had to alter the exposure compensation to over expose the images, this was mainly due to the reflected light from the water. I also set the camera high ISO noise reduction to high.
