Auto ISO – Arrrhhh

I had gone down to the river near my house and I was trying to get some motion blury water shots. This meant closing down my apeture to its smallest setting f/22 to achive the lowest shutter speed I could get. However it was only when I got home I discovered that because of auto ISO most of the shots had been shot at ISO 400 lossing me loads of shutter speed that I wanted to show blur. The auto ISO for the shot above had selected 200 for some reason but it is somewhat overexposed as I was trying to stretch the shutter speed as far as it would go.

Lesson learned. I now leave my ISO set to 100 and only adjust it manually when I know I need to due to the aperture and shutter speed settings I want to achive not being possible at 100.
