Hi ISO portrait ...

Discussion in 'People' started by Boobie Joe, Sep 21, 2005.

  1. I used a unusual combination for this one (self-portrait).

    A wide angle Zoom + an ISO 800 setting and no strobe.

    I also converted to BW because I usually like the noise in BW pics.

    I found an interesting way to seriously reduce the noise as well in NC 4.3.1
    My good friend Benoit G lead me to it.

    I use Moire Noise reduction and it clears the chroma noise quite efficiently. All the noise left looks like film grain rather than color noise.

  2. Very nice natural light image Yves. Noise is very minimal. Good job with the conversion.

    Moire reduction, eh, I gotta try that. At this size, I honestly don't see any noise. Now, don't get mad, but do you think a slightly higher camera angle, and pose that's leaning forward a bit more would help with the look of the neck? :tongue:

    Very nicely done, Yves.
  5. Very nicely done as always Yves.
    Question: Did you just use Moire noise reduction alone? or colour and /or edge reduction as well?
    Also did you convert to B&W in Capture or photoshop ?


  6. U know Steven ... Yes to all your questions and suggestions ...

    Now I am very mad at you for noticing this ... lololol

  7. Moire reduction alone setting high, B&W conversion and contrast adj done in NC 4.3.1
  8. I must say that the noise (grain) is very small indeed, it's not even noticeable.
