more fun with grain-portraits
Feb 16, 2003

Hi All,

I've been playing further with highly grained, low contrast, images (like in this thread: ). This time it's been with portraits of my daughter (any guesses as to her age?).

I know that these are a departure from the "tack sharp" school of imaging, but I'd appreciate your comments anyway (these were inspired by the grainy look that some of my ISO1600 images have been giving, and by some sublime shots I saw recently in a photo magazine that were shot on film with only filters modifying the image. Woah!)

BTW, these images are more delicate at full size, bringing them down to 500 or 650 pixels wide has made them seen "heavier". Unfortunate.

This time taken with a Tamron 28-300 superzoom (a great thing about this technique is that your glass doesn't have to be of top quality
