Yikes! I let a whole week go by without posting on my blog! It must have been a great busy week. I didn’t even get around to shooting for this week’s theme — grain — until Saturday night.
Grain is the appearance of texture in photos. In film it’s due to particles during the processing. In digital photography it’s related to the sensitivity of the sensor in the camera. You can read all about it here if you want. Since I have not really practiced being creative with photographic grain before, I considered photographing food grain instead, but then I realized that I shoot grainy pictures all the time with my little Rebel, especially in the winter when the the light of day lasts such a short time. The Rebel is an entry level camera, so it produces a lot of grain at high ISO. So I just turned my ISO all the way up and embraced the grain while photographing our game of Munchkin with friends Saturday evening.
