Low light

Anne along Queens Wharf Road, Brisbane - Sigma 85mm, f/1.4 Art 

I never  cease to be amazed by our new (I still find it new) ability to shoot in low light. Of course this is mostly due to the new sensors, but also to the image stabilisation that's in some camera bodies and lenses. Even with some of my own light added, the above image, for example, was shot at ISO 6400.

I used to be impressed by pushing Tri-X from ASA 400 to an even grainier 1600.

Am I nostalgic for the old days of film? Not in the slightest.
