Learning about ISO

This weekend I'm learning about using ISO, so I thought I would share a few shots I've been experimenting with around home. This lovely yellow rose I received for mothers day.

f/4.0, 1/40

f/4.2, 1/80

f/5.0, 1/100

f/6.3, 1/160

Really is fascinating. If you're into that sort of thing. The higher the ISO the grainier the picture, each increase is twice as sensitive. With each photo I also noted the fstop and shutter speed whilst I only changed the ISO in Program mode.

Now... whats next on the list

Filing Cabinet Project

I've decided to drag this old dated thing upstairs for a facelift for our home office.  I'm hoping a splash of white paint and new handles is all it needs.

Its previous home was a little hidey-hole under the stairs.  But I really do need a filing cabinet upstairs for all our bits and pieces.

As you can see our home office area consists of just a small section of wall in our sitting room.

And I've decided to have a go at updating this little area myself - without buying anymore new furniture, and basically using what I have at home.  I just hope I'm successful!

The first step is to update the filing cabinet.  Then move onto the desk - more white paint I think!

So to work I go.

Cheerio for now!
