Sussies surprise

I finally found a really good way to put grain in black and white images. It's really funny because it was right there under my nose all this time. In Adobe Photoshop CS3 there is a feature in the "Filters" menu called "Film grain" in the "Artistic" sub menu.

Apply this feature to a solid grey layer. Set the blending mode of the layer to "overlay".

That's it!

LOL, you just found that smile

Lovely work here
Jide Alakija: Not really, I always knew it was there, I just didn't think that it had been improved in the CS3 version of Photoshop. It wasn't very convincing in the previous versions.

No wonder! And I was starting to think that the 5D doesn't put out this much noise.

LOL. Scientists are working their arse off to get noise out of their systems and photographers are looking for ways to get it back in again!
