Just Two Photos......

I'm curious as to why you would reduce the ISO and shutter speed for underground shots?

 

Higher quality and less noise in the photos, also had to mess with photo exposure. As compared to these

Nice pics. Keep playing around with the settings and eventually you'll find something good.

 

And usually the higher the ISO the more noise in the picture, depending on the camera.

but the higher the ISO the less time you need to keep the shutter open vs lower ISO with higher speed shutter which might increase the chances of you getting blurred moving objects.

I thought you was a photographer? :P High ISO and quick shutter speed underground leads to dark, noisy pictures. Lower shutter speed gives more time for the picture to brighten.

Well its a trade-off. You can use a higher ISO for more light and shorter exposure time, at the risk of getting a grainy shot, while as using a lower ISO with a longer exposure time at the risk of getting a blurry shot, yet cleaner and less grainy. SLR's don't have this much of a problem.

High ISO is really only good for low light conidtions of moving objects. If its a Static object then the LOWEST ISO is preferred with a longer shutter speed and a steady tripod to avoid the grainy outcome as mentioned before.

Not an issue really with SLRs :cool: *hugs his DSLR* Only time I start getting issue with noise due to high ISOs is when doing long exposures to get night time shots of for example the Verrazano Bridge.

Im really curious about FOVEON sensor DSLRs. I want to get a Sigma. From what I read over the years, the FOVEON sensor is way superior to a majority of the DSLRs sesnors that are out there and offer TRUE megapixel ratings.

 

The pics above do look sweet though

Nice shots. Photog Joe McNally has a YouTube that gives good advice on how to handhold at slower shutter speeds. Google Joe McNally "Da Grip".

I've trierd it and it works.

It's worth noting that noise reduction is possible whereas "blur reduction" is nonexistent.

 

In order to freeze a train in the subway, you have to go with at least ISO 640-800, perhaps even 1600 if your lens is not fast enough.

Yeah what Joe said. And if it's stationary then brace against a column or railing. If your camera has an eyepiece then use it as your head will steady the cam. If the train is moving then high ISO. Grain is better than blur.

Also use the sniper technique. Breathe, exhale and press the shutter button.
