I am currently reviewing several underwater photography textbooks that have been released in the past year or so, and it is interesting to note that they advocate shooting at base ISO whenever possible. In fact one suggests stopping down is preferable to moving off 100 ISO!
They are written by folks that did a lot of film shooting.
That's an interesting observation - and probably a very important one. My main background is in film photography, and I am still learning how different the digital world is. A lot of the skills that I had learned just aren't needed or are wrong, so digital can be a challenge still. But, that's also what makes it interesting, and why I appreciate all the great advice here on Wetpixel.
