Yesterday, monday 14th, was the first day of recording the documentary, i first had a look around, capture around 80 photographs and then carried out a small interview. The participant was mark, this participant i’ve known for 6 years, so it was a case of going into the environment knowing what to expect. Most unfortuently, i made a mistake of leaving the ISO at a very high setting, i was initially shooting outdoors, and forgot to turn it back down once i had stated photographing the indoor setting, so all the intital images from the first shoot have a lot of noise in them. I aim to go back this evening, tuesday the 15th, and re-shoot…however i have since been trying to reduce the noise on some of the images by using photoshop noise filters, and using a surface blur. This has worked to some extent, SEE IMAGES BELOW, however i think it may be best to just re-shoot later today.
THIS FIRST IMAGE (below) IS THE original, without any noise filters being added- you can see it is quite grainy
this SECOND image (below) has been edited in photoshop to remove some of the noise caused by a high ISO- it has of course lost some of its detail, definition and sharpness, a lot of the grainy pixels from the original image are a lot less visible, but considering the fact that these images are going to be viewed at a high resolution i think it might be ebst to re-shoot-
