Home Forums Let’s Talk Photography Why is everyone hung up on NOISE!?! Reply To: Why is everyone hung up on NOISE!?!


I print nearly every photo I make.  Large?  eh, about 30% of the time.  With that said… I sometimes purposely make noisy pictures, or even add “grain” later if I want to.  I don’t think it’s about the noise, even when people say that it is for them.  It’s about light sensitivity and low light performance.  You aren’t going to use a crappy sensor if you are finding yourself often shooting in low light situations.  I don’t get too involved in gear talk, I’d rather talk about pictures and photographs than the gear used to make them.  Meeting gear heads in real life…. well I nearly always get a chuckle at their expense.  Your mega pixels and and frames per second, and LCD specs, and yadda yadda sensor,  just aren’t important but I’ll humor you and pretend that they are while we are talking 😉
