Let me put on a show for you, tiger

I've seen my name thrown around in forums and such, of people talking about cameras and gear and stuff. Many people congratulating my good work done with an entry level camera (I use a Canon T1i).

Others asking how is it possible that I get good photos with the kit lens.

Truth is, both the camera and the lens are alright, but limited in their possibilities under low light. Quite obviously, you can't always shoot in slower shutter speeds. So if your apperture can only go to this or this wide, you have to push the ISO up, and that's when the noise nightmare begins.

I don't like noise in color photography, most people don't either (even though they don't seem to be too bothered about it with iphoneinstagraphy). For Karla's photoshoot I chose a nice location, but it was one that very quickly became dim lit. This time we were alone, I didn't have anyone helping me with a reflector (and she did her own make up as well) so I had to push the ISO up to 800 in some photos. The photos are alright, but I better make sure I have someone helping with the lighting next times.

Or you can always help me by buying prints of my photos so I can buy a better camera and some strobes! ;P Heh...

 

Anyway, here's the post I promised about the magazine feature, check it out ;-)
