You would use a lower ISO number when there is lots of natural light/artificial light already present. A higher ISO number would be used if you were in a room where there was a smaller or little source of light.


-What are some of the negative side effects of using a high ISO? Explain.
The negative side effects of using a high ISO includes a bright photo with an excessive amount of light included within the photo.
