Nice shots Tammy . It's always good to see real-world examples rather than arbitrary tests. Is that last one of ISO 25,600, F4, 1/8000s just a typo or was it really quite bright and you were having a play around with the ISOs?
Thank you, both
The last black and white shot was in fact shot at 1/8000s.. at night! =)
It actually was not that bright, just an average acceptably lit pizzeria. But it's amazing what shutter speeds you can get at ISO 25,600 and fast glass! The light from the neon signs also affected metering. I shot it at ISO 25,600 strictly for creative purposes: to get natural in-camera gritty grain feel/look.. it was the theme for an available light photography school class that night and i was THRILLED to get out and shoot high ISO with my new 5D3 high ISO.. i knew that the noise was very fine and film-like and was looking forward to the photos i would get.. it was amazing to think that i generally HAD to set such a high ISO to get that noise when of course many of my fellow classmates were setting their cameras to max ISO's of 3200 etc or some with earlier Rebels to 1600.. how truly far technology has come in just a few years! we are blessed!
