We photographers seem to have a natural reluctance to whack up the ISO when the conditions get difficult. Okay, five or ten years ago, looking at a photo shot with very high ISO could be like looking through a snow storm – but that’s not usually the case today.

I was chatting to a well-known picture editor last week, who said he’s not particularly troubled by high speed shooting – a bit of grain being much more preferable to even a tiny amount of blur.

So, to ensure a pin sharp shot, don’t be afraid of using high ISO – most modern cameras can take it in their stride.
