    Cause someone showed me how to change it at a Christmas Eve party I was at- I was taking pictures of my kids and adjusting the ISO based on how the picture looked on the LCD screen (is that what it's called?), anyways,

    My questions is.. Should it look the same on that tiny screen as on my computer? Or do I just adjust knowing that when I thought it was too dark it really looked fine on the computer?? or, am I supposed to know what ISO I wanted???

    ISO is, in simple terms, sensitivity to light. The higher the ISO, the more sensitive the sensor is to light, the less light it needs to make the image. The trade off is that you invite noise into the picture.

    ISO should be adjusted to facilitate the necessary shutter speed and aperture desired for the photo.

    As a goal, though, you should shoot with as LOW an ISO as you can get away with and still get the shot you want. Your image will be cleaner with better detail.

    When you say low-- You mean low as in 100, right? It isn't backwards in photography is it?

    I had my camera set at 250-- I think 250 I was outside..

    Aperture can sometimes look as though it's backwards (a lower number lets more light into the lens) but ISO is straightforward -- you want to shoot as close to the native ISO as you can (for Canon this is 100, for Nikon I believe it is 200).
