As much as I’ve always loved photographing nature and nature photography, I’m always stuck by the wonderful images that you can take in more urban settings – city and downtowns, buildings and bridges, even street signs and the like.
City photography, sometimes called location photography, is fun because it allows for so many different types of subjects:
The one issue that many people have with photographing in an urban setting is the sometimes overwhelming amount of greyness and angular hardness—the concrete streets and sidewalks, the steel architecture and rigid outlines of bridges and buildings —that’s everywhere in a city setting. But I think it helps if you can see the beauty is this very man-made world. I can.

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.
