Do you want to know the 5 tips to successfully reduce noise in images? Here are some things you can do to easily and successfully reduce noise with camera techniques or post-processing.
1. Low ISO Settings
To reduce the noise in the image, keep the ISO low. Increase it only when absolutely necessary. Higher ISO settings are suitable when you want to keep away from camera shake, or perhaps motion blur.
The slightest decrease in ISO settings are enough to make huge changes at reducing the noise in images, especially when they are at the highest ISO values.
2. Tripods and Camera Features
It will be of great convenience if you have a tripod. Attach your camera to your tripod. That way, you can have your camera set to the slowest ISO (ISO 100 will be good) with very little noise.
This method is applicable if your subjects are static and in low light condition. Better yet, if your camera has a Long Exposure Noise Reduction feature, make use of it!
3. Keep Away From Heat
Are you aware of the fact that your image noise can increase significantly when your camera’s sensor is hot? When you photograph under a hot and humid conditions, remember to always keep your camera away from being under direct sunlight.
Whenever you aren’t using your camera, keep it away in a bag. That’ll be the best option in such circumstances. When in winter, don’t leave your camera near the radiator.
4. Shoot In RAW
When possible, shoot in RAW. Shooting in RAW makes it more possible for you to tweak and sharpen images in post-processing.
5. Check The Noise
When you use the Detail tab in Adobe Camera Raw, begin with Noise Reduction. Set to 25 for Color. Set to 0 for Luminance. After that, zoom in and take a look at the image at 100%. This makes it possible for you to adjust these sliders so that it will suit the shot.
