So, we have two camps. One whose methodology is based on controlling the exposure that happens at capture time to determine the output tonality of their images, the other whose methodology is based on controlling it to determine DOF, motion blur and image noise.

Indeed. The problem with teaching new photographers that ISO is in any way related to exposure is that you're sending them straight into camp #1, and it can be difficult, later on, to bring them over into camp #2.

And I think it's safe to say that the large majority of photographers finds itself in camp #1, believing the world is flat when it's actually round. I can't see a good reason to send new photographers over to camp #1, per default, hoping they'll make their way to camp #2 down the road.


PS - bobn2, I wonder if you'd be so kind as to have a look at this post, a continuation of our discussion in the 'Exposure basics, part two' thread?
