ah so you basically jacked his light? haha. thanks for the info though, the flash makes more sense. There is no way you could shoot f8 and 1/125 in a dark venuse and get near properly exposed tones without any extra light.Nope i don't do any noise reduction, this specifically was shot at iso600 1/125 fstop is 8 with a 40mm lens. That blur of light you also see is someones flash going off and thought it was a cool effect to the picture since it light up half of the picture up until the crowds hands.
do you noise reduce these? your blacks look clear as hell.
