Film Speeds for the Beginner (continue)

The end result here will be crystal clear action; fast film is wonderful for shooting sports or anything that moves quickly. When you see a picture of a basketball player suspended in mid air, you know that the image was possibly taken with high speed film. With a slower ISO, the player in the picture would likely be a big blur. Faster film also needs less light and can be super helpful in situations in which a flash isn’t appropriate indoors.

Lower speed film captures more detail because it has more time to gain light. It’s important to keep the words “detail” and “blurry” separate- more “detail” in a picture is similar to a high definition TV having more “detail” than a regular television- more of what was originally there will be seen in a photo. The more time the film can “see” a scene, the more accurately the scene will be represented. Lower speed films are great for Brisbane portrait photography or images in which you wish to show great depth of field.

Film Speed Experiments

To get a good handle on how ISO works and what it does to your images, here are a couple of things to try out the next time you’re planning a shooting day:

* Get rid of your flash (if you have one) and take some fast film into a low light environment

* Swing by a local high school, college, or little league game and try shooting (with permission) two rolls of film - one very slow (ISO 100) and one very fast (ISO 1000) - then have a look at how different the images turned out.

Film speed is one of those great things to play with when you’re pretty comfortable with your camera and you’re looking for new ways to challenge your perceptions. Each speed has strengths and weaknesses, and it’s all up to you to decide which one works for you.
