How to Minimize Image Noise on Digital Photography

Image noise seems to be a major problem for many photographers in the business. It can easily ruin a picture if the noise is too pronounced in the photo. Follow the tips below to reduce the amount of image noise that is produced in a photograph.

Buy a Quality Camera

Much of the time, the digital camera is to blame. If you were to buy a low quality camera, the image noise may be greater. The camera simply isn't "fast" enough so when the image is being produced in the camera, it cannot process the information fast enough, causing the photo to become grainy or distorted.

Shutter Speed

If you draw out the shutter speed too long, it allows more time for the photo to become distorted. Although slow shutter speeds can make for a blurred picture with a dramatic effect, it can also produce a photo that has become noisy in terms of photo quality.

Avoid Harsh Contrasts

If you place a dark object beside a very light object, it may throw the picture off by forcing the camera to compensate for the contrasts. If you can, avoid placing the two objects side by side without placing a neutral item between them.
