As Low As I Can As High As I Need.

Why High ISO Performance in a Camera is Meaningless to Me, And Probably Should be to You Too. Why is high ISO performance so important to so many photographers, many of whom will never need or use any of the higher ISO settings their camera offers?

What Now?

My Best Waterfall Photograph Ever. This past autumn while out photographing with a private workshop client I may have created an almost insurmountable problem for myself, the problem of making a photograph so good I may never be able to top it.
