Sometimes, when underexposed, made at high ISO, or through poor-quality lenses, our pictures can have unwanted artifacts in the image. We call these artifacts noise.
Noise can add to a photo,
but often it's a distraction we'd prefer to get rid of. In this series, we'll explore why noise happens, how you can avoid it, and what you can do to make the best of the noise you have.
All pictures contain some degree of noise. This series isn't just about eliminating noise: it's about understanding the limits of our technologies and pushing them to their limits.
