Reasons Why You Should Shoot HDR Images at the Lowest Native ISO Setting – From the HDR Photography Workshop Series

In previous tutorials, we discussed what the optimal shutter speed and aperture setting should be when we are shooting HDR photography. Now, we are going to discuss the optimal ISO setting.
