Dog Blog Post #2106

Today I was a bit more clever and put my Nikon on the end table so I could at least be lazy with the good camera instead of with the iPhone.

Today's shots are 1/60s and f/3.5.

About half were ISO 500 and the other were ISO 1000. Higher ISO allows you to get away with less light, at the expense of more "grain" in the image.

I normally shoot ISO 100 (as low as the camera will go) since I usually shoot with a flash.

I applied Luminance Noise Reduction to all in Lightroom, which created extremely smooth, although slightly softened images.

Bye-bye grain!

Next week, if I do this again, I'll try to remember to upload a pre Noise Reduction version so you can see the difference.

All images are of Henry, as Zachary was stretched out too far from the lamp.
