Not true, one starts raising ISO when they are already aperture and shutter limited.

Bob says - "people using ISO first technique".

Ok, then I have to question as to how using the method somehow makes one think of ISO first. Its always the last result, after exposure is maximized, regardless of ones understanding of exposure.

Interesting to do a poll, see whether most photographers set the ISO first or last. My guess is first, because the camera user interface is designed that way.

Will that poll actually be representative? Most people who write in this forum tend to know more about the mechanisms of digital photography than average.

I admit I have (at least) two modes of photography - in the snapshooting mode I even sometimes use the "IA" setting offered on my Panasonic. And in that mode I tend to set the ISO first, then try and get a reasonable DOF and keep an eye on the exposure time to avoid shutter speed. If I am in the more serious mode, I work differently.
