PHOTOGRAPHER’S TUTORIAL

2. Image quality requirements

2.3. Color noise

Appearance of color noise on images can spoil even the best subject. It is necessary to prevent it during a shooting, and in cases where it appears in photos, use a software program to reduce it.

Color noise appears in images as relatively small, randomly situated defective pixels, with variation in hue. Heavy and distinct noise decreases the quality of an image, drawing spectator’s attention away (especially if situated on uniform color areas) and giving an unrealistic look.

Main sources of noise are: bad quality of digital sensors (cheap cameras produce more noise), very long exposure times, as well as algorithms of processing a signal from sensor by camera.

Preventive measures are: usage of normal and short exposure times and moderate ISO numbers. The longer an exposure time, during which photons of light affect camera sensors, more “hot” pixels will appear. Noise tends to appear at a shot underexposure and efforts can be made to pull it off later in a graphic editor.

In case of poor illumination of a subject, choose shooting in a RAW camera format in order to lessen the noise level at post processing.

Loss of details, appearance of artifacts

Use specially developed software to decrease noise with caution, since their abuse can greatly decrease the quality of the image which will result in losing details, focus and blurring.


Lightboxar

Lightboxar är som mappar för filer du är intresserad av. Du kan skapa flera lightboxar baserade på dina projekt eller ämnen, lägga till filer i dem och sedan enkelt köpa dem. Vi erbjuder även en funktion som tillåter dig maila lightboxar till dina vänner, familj och klienter. Lightboxar är väldigt kraftfulla och ett användbart verktyg för att organisera och köpa filer.
