The Challenges of Shooting at High ISO

While the sensitivity of new camera sensors, like that in the Panasonic VariCam 35, can facilitate night shoots that were previously impossible, RedShark News‘ Phil Rhodes also discusses some of the challenges of shooting in extreme low-light.

He writes, “The fundamentals of good craft, of course, still apply in today’s world, maybe now more than ever, as the exclusion of subtle, irrelevant story elements inside the frame requires extreme diligence and discipline. Shooting with the new Varicam 35 recently in Paris at night revealed ordinary streetlights that suddenly appeared too bright. The night sky over the city also appeared surprisingly overexposed, as well as the TV screens in a shop window that appeared unacceptably blown out.”
