    You use the ISO you need based on your aperture to maintain the shutterspeed you need....

    Really, there is no magic formula.

    So will there be noise even though its bright At high iso?

    the is a reason you need to use particular aperture setting of this scene, so you compromise with the other two

    Generally ISO noise is more visible in dark areas, etc.

    You have a camera, right? You have a window, or a door that will let you go outside? Ergo, you have the ability to test and try as much as you want to. why don't you do that? It will be much more productive to your learning than just typing away at a keyboard and thinking of theories.

    If it is well exposed, generally for modern DSLRs, it will be fine up to ISO1600.

    But you will lose dynamic range..

    As far as possible, assuming that you are not constrained by the shutter speed, and are using the correct aperture that you want, you should use the lowest ISO possible for maximum image quality AND dynamic range.

    Though, I find myself shooting as low an ISO as possible when I move from one scene to another.

    No offense to catchlight, just sharing a thought:
    It would be quite funny to think, "I need that many grains on my image, hence because I need this high ISO and I have to turn up my shutter speed and turn down my aperture". Not impossible but just find it amusing as a reason for a certain ISO.

    usually use 100..
    it there's a need to increase then increase by small increments..
    no need to shoot at high iso in daylight.

    i was thinking:" what, shoot a window or door?" then i laughed very hard at this XD solid advice to people who worry they're not doing photography right.

    if the photographer prefer digital noise from high ISO than adding grains in the post, by all means.

    For me, I'll try to maintain the ISO as low as possible.
    You can set to auto and set the max as well, after that u can more focus on ur object
