1. Great work! I have never shot at such high ISO settings, you are very risky. What I try to do with images at lower speeds yield good prospects for sail. Wear as I have little success with images that poses noise and grain when viewed at 100%. However, I am inspired by the technique and compositions. Working with Stock Photos can take the fun out of experimenting. Yet they don’t seem to like creative work so much.

    I do need to get out more. Limited travel expenses keep me working mostly with still photography in my studio. While outdoor shots of unsuspected people need to be submitted as editorials.

    I’ll come back to see you again. I know you will inspire me.

    • Thank you very much. I am very happy that you enjoy my work. And I love to experiment with all my setting. Shooting with high ISO is very risky but some one once told me ” it’s better to use high ISO and capture a great shot, then not capture anything at all.” Thank you for stopping by and hope to hear from you in the future. Happy blogging. 🙂

      • I also would like to thank you for your reply. As one photographer to another it’s great to learn from others. I like what you do and yes it is not a good to shoot and find out you could have done something better to produce a good image. If I may, you mentioned using photo shop CS6. I use CS5 and Perfect Photo plugins. Between the two I correct under exposed (as long as the shot is not washed out) images to reconstruct it. I also do a lot of blending with Photo shop. When I looking at my images below 100% they look really great until I expand it. Photo critiques are harsh about grainy images no matter how good the composition is. I did not mention I did and may again experiment with iso setting. However being rejected for many times for too much noise I had to rethink what would my purpose be for using my images. High iso works well submitting images that flash is not permitted (concerts) and sport photography (which I stopped doing moving into the digital arena. Looking back to when I did darkroom (analog) work and working in photo labs noise was never an issue. But I must say when I liked an image I took and it didn’t quite cut it, I reduced the size to hid any discrepancies.

        I enjoy corresponding with you and sincerely hope I’m not over stepping my bounds.

      • Hello it’s good to hear from you again. And I don’t think you are overstepping your boundaries. I agree and also love learning new things from other photographers. But I do love to experiment as well. I usually do multiple shots from different angels and with different settings. But unfortunately sometimes the seen is perfect and it won’t wait for me to play around so I bump up my ISO a little and hope for the best. If I hadn’t bumped up my ISO I would have missed on some great memory’s. Does the image have a little noise ? Sure, but I would rather have it than not have the photo. That is very true about the photo critics and grainy photos. Photoshop is a great tool to have to fix up some images or just to make them more fun. I truly enjoy chatting with you.



  2. Thanks for your reply Lukas, if you don’t have “Imagenomic” check it out. Once you do, you will know how it can help with noise.
