Grain is for film images what noise is to digital images. Both occur with faster film or higher ISO used in low light. The only difference is that grain is considered artistic because of its even nature but noise is not because it tends to be blotchy. In this low light shot I tried to cover the noise with artificial grain – I did not really pull it off – but I like the shot so I am posting it.

This is a girl in China practicing with her Numchucks – just don’t get in her way okay!

UPDATE: Sadly, Nicole, the girl in this photo passed away from leukemia about about 18-months after this photo was taken.Will never forget you Nicole - you fought to the end!
