I have been mentoring photographers for almost a decade, and a very common photographic fear is using a high ISO.
And when I say fear, I mean photographers freak out about grain!
“I can’t shoot a higher ISO, the image will be grainy!!”
“Won’t my images have more noise if I photograph at a higher ISO?”
But sometimes no.
Watch the video, and you’ll understand why I prefer using a higher ISO.

I think most wedding photographers would agree with you . technology has come so far…I know Susan Stripling shoots ISO 6400 without worry…My wedding setup is a fuji x100s and the X-T1 with the 56 1.2…as well as a 55-200 which I use rarely…I have shot ISO 6400 with my setup when i really have to…but usually 1600 to 3200 with really good results…the most important part of your message is to nail the exposure…I know some shooters that will purposely overexpose just a bit and that works fine too…Nice video Heather
good explanation for the new shooters. I’m always happy to shoot in the 3200-12800 ISO range with newer cameras. Even with my old d3 6400 was acceptable to me. Grain is rarely seen unless viewed at 100% anyways.
