Most tutorials about digital noise are about how to remove it, but I'll show you why we can all show noise a little more love.

Noise has a bad reputation. Most tips treat it as an unsightly blemish, as if it’s some awful abnormality that needs correcting. Handled properly, though, the right kind of noise can add a lot of mood to an image. In this video we are going to look at how to add grain - organic-looking noise - to certain images can create atmosphere and depth.

While grain can separate your pictures from a sea of clinical-looking digital captures, not all images are ideal candidates for such treatment. We discuss the types of compositions and lens choices that will help with this look.
