Q: Can I offer poster prints of my images for sell?

A: Do you know?

I am not a super fan of using high ISO on the D80, but it can be fixed in Post, and SOMETIMES, it can give your photographs Character, and a film-like grain.

I do like this Candid Portrait Though ;-)

    I shoot with a D80 too and have had problems with the hi ISO. What's the secret?

  • Ahmed Roberson

    Ahmed Roberson said (6 Oct 2008):

    No big secret Aaron! I use High ISO NR set to High, and I clean up all that I can in Photoshop. It is the nature of the beast! Ideally, I'd like to stay at 400 and below, but circumstances don't always allow...even with an f/1.8 lens.

    I like the way his face is in sharp focus, while the rest of the photo is not. It makes you focus on his face. Very nice candid.
