The spontaneity of it all – that’s what ticks for me! I love shooting the streets and when you are on the streets, you don’t have much control on the light. As much as most of us likes to control the light, I don’t mind it. And it means shooting in different conditions including lowlight scenes. Technology has moved forward, and the never-heard ISO is now a reality. Nowadays, ISO 6400 and ISO 12800 are starting to get into the mainstream, while highest ISOs are now rated at 102,400 and 204,800! These are really crazy numbers. While I won’t normally shoot at ISO 6400 and the likes, it’s useful at times when the situations calls for it. And here’s where the 1.4 primes takes also the advantage in lowlight scenarios.
