There’s nothing like a new snow fall to brighten up a dreary winter landscape.
The beauty of a fresh snowfall inspires the photographer in all of us. The bright white snow against a rich blue sky, the light reflecting off of icicles, kids playing in the snow…winter scenes beckon to be photographed.

We've seen how managing the ISO setting allows you to control the amount of grain that shows in your photos. But it does more than that. Understanding and working with the ISO setting gives us added flexibility in terms of setting the other two exposure settings–aperture and shutter speed.
The bottom line is that ISO is an important and useful tool, and one that you will want to be comfortable with if you are looking to take creative control of your exposure.
