ISO homework revisited by jacqbb

ISO homework revisited

Thank you all for the feedback I received yesterday! I really appreciate you all took the time to do this.
So I tried again.....
The left one: F 4,8 S1,6 iso low
The right one: F 4,8 S 320 iso 25600
Both are taken on aperture mode and handheld.
I don’t particularly like the right one with the grain but can see it’s use in some situations.
I really like the composition. The one on the left is crisper.

Love the left one Jacqueline, I try to avoid grain at all costs. Maybe I am wrong 😉

usually the idea is not to put grain in (although sometimes that is an artistic intention). it's about light. when the light where you are shooting is low you have to let more light in to the camera.
for me personally, I'm not good at slow shutter speeds, I always manage to move a little and blur the image.
so I increase the ISO and then use post processing to remove the heavy grain.
often I take a few photos if the koala is quite still with different settings - changing shutter speed and ISO. then back at the computer I can sort to see which got the better result.

Just so interesting. Subtle differences, to me.

So good that you are doing this - it really helps to know what to do in difficult situations or when you want to create a certain look.
I do not notice the grain as much in this set as much as I did in yesterday's offering.
Good to see you doing the course!

@farmreporter Thanks Wendy, I only hope I can remember it all if in need ;)
@louannwarren Thank you Lou Ann :)
@koalagardens It’s good to know that you can remove some of the grain in post processing, and I have to learn to use a tripod more :)
@ludwigsdiana Thanks Diana, I don’t like the high grain particularly too :)
@wakelys It is! Thanks Susan :)

I use Topaz denoise AI as I feel it does a better job than PS when the ISO is high

Certainly noise and thus clarity is far worse at the higher ISOs, but I must say the image on the right is quite impressive for 25600! I agree with KoalaGardens, Topaz DeNoise works great!
