My Journey into Trail and Ultra Running
Playing with bokeh and lights on a rainy night. Tones are warmed up a bit, and the colors have been desaturated. I’m actually a pretty big fan of the grain that the D7000 produces at ISO 1600.
Love the tones.
Ah yes. The tones and the grain are wonderful in this shot. Was this taken from a car? I shoot on 1600 too much sometimes just to get that nice grain. And I try to trick myself into thinking I’m shooting in film.
Yeah, it was taken from my car. You can see the streaks from the wipers in the photo. I loved how the light was reflecting in the wet street. I’ve never shot film, but I’ve heard a lot about how grain was used aesthetically, but digital’s grain was never pleasing. I don’t know how true it is, and maybe you can lend your opinion, but the D7000 (my camera) is supposedly the first DSLR to get pretty close to the old film grain look. I didn’t use any noise reduction for this image or add grain in post, so this is purely from my camera. How do you think it compares to film grain?
This is one of my favorite ways to create photos on a rainy day. And the d7000 plays along so nicely. What lens are you using here? a 50?
It’s been so long since we’ve had a rainy night that I kind of want a few more so I can go see what I can come up with. I was using my 35mm for this shot, which would be 50mm on a full frame camera.
