Thrive Project: ISO and the Rule of Thirds

The topic this week with the Thrive Project is ISO and the Rule of Thirds.
Farmgirl Paints

Becky from Farmgirl Paints gives a good explanation of ISO.  She explains it like a dimmer light switch.  If you have a lot of light or you are outside, you would have the dimmer down low.  If you are in a darker room with less sunlight, you would turn the dimmer up.  The higher the dimmer (ISO) the grainier the picture becomes.  Low ISO=crisper pics.

With the Rule of Thirds, you are supposed to imagine a grid with 9 boxes.  Put the subject on one of the crosshairs.  Becky has graphics on her blog to explain.
