Street Photography In a Different Town

Gee...I missed the photography outing (street photography) organised by Sarawak bloggers, but I'm sure they had a blast shooting people randomly and it looks like Norman is the first one to blog about it. Just click at his name to read about the event.

Well... on the same day, I had my own street photography at my hometown too but I was alone. Heheheh...It was late in the evening when I saw lots of birds flying, trying to settle down on the electric cables to sleep. So I decided to snap photos of them. I set my ISO to the max 1600. And guess what? Still got noise. I think it is time for me to get a better DSLR. What do you think?

Another reason for noise is probably due to the timing. It was a bit too dark. Should have taken the photos earlier. Hehehe

waaaaaaaaaaa........so many birds!!! a little dark though...but arent all birds are after a certain number of years?hahahhaha.....

I thought those black dots were debris being blown about in the storm.

My slr cannot take ISO 1600 too. Images produced contains noticeable noise.

I am considering upgrading to a 5D Mark II with a L-series lens.

Willie, any photo-blog on university graduation yg boleh disuggest to me? I need some idea for lovely pose with friend on her graduation this coming oct, i mean utk photo studio. By the way, any program on tententen (10 oct 2010)? I will be in Unimas. Just nak nanya if u available for photo shooting on that day, apa lagi... taking my photo. I guess my digital camera is just ordinary, n it will become too ordinary if unknown people with no photography's talent menggunakannya to take my photo. Thank you in advance :-)

Willie a.k.a Reptoz said...

MrDuey :hi. Thanks.

Amir :Salah bro. Di pasar Serian.

That is ALOT of birds you got there. I don't know much about photography but enjoying looking at pictures you post. I hear that the DSLR is very popular amongst photographers now. And isn't it expensive too?

Try not to look at photography in terms of noise, sharpness and all the technicalities the crowd is trying to push you into thinking.

Technicalities help you to get your shot right, but a real photograph that truly shines may be out of focus, full of noise. Why? because it has a significant meaning behind it, a depth of ideas and sense of emotions overflowing through it.

Also, I agree with rainfield61.

There is no end to upgrading and lusting for better cameras. Just use what you have, and start pushing greater and greater images out of it. Photography is not about what the camera can do, it is about what the photographer can do. Your best weapon is your photography vision.
