I need some help here guys and gals. I wanted to capture some good photos of my wife while she is still pregnant (we are due at the end of this month). I set up some lights, wanted to create some good black and whites. I am using a D70, set up as follows
Using a cheap strobe light to get some lighting, put the strobe behind a white sheet, to try and get a "soft" look. Instead, I got a really really bad, grainy look. I am not sure where I went wrong??? ISO? WB? Fstop? Take a look and offer me some suggestions. I just don't know what went wrong. I have been having a problem with grain lately, and I am not sure if its the camera or what. When I take pictures outside, even with the iso set at 400, I still am getting grain. I never had this problem before...and a lot of my pictures I have taken in the past with this camera and the same setups have been great. Can someone please help me with this!!!!! Additionally, the photo didn't look quite as bad with the raw file, but when i resized the picture, it looks worse. Any help with this is greatly appreciated.
I appreciate your comments in advance.
