Pleasant images... and you shot RAW.

Question: "Why did you use ISO 400 and ISO 800 during daylight?"



Good question Luego,

I was using variants of the Auto ISO & Auto Dynamic Range settings. (Something quite new to me as my Canon Bodies are a little older & don't even have Auto ISO) Some of these scenes were fairly intense with deep blacks & vivid highlights, i.e. Wide DR so the camera was choosing the DR 200 & 400 Settings. This necessitates a higher ISO by design.

The camera handled this pretty well I think as recovering the highlights and shadows seems pretty straightforward in Post with very little noise.

(I was using LR 5.4 &/or Capture One interchangeably for these images...)


Thanks for your explanation , Evan.

You realize that DR Auto is an aid for JPEG shooters and if you shoot RAW the same can be accomplished with the EC dial. This way you can shoot base ISO 200 and have the full DR range at your disposal in PP.
