Rebecca And Pita


Rebecca has asked me to take some shots of her and her cat. Unfortunately the cat is not in the best shape, has a hernia, no longer able to move and not sure if it survives this winter. I was avoiding using a flash or a soft box, and we also couldn't go anywhere from  Rebecca's apartment, considering the cat's condition. As darkness approached, I had to increase sensitivity and, since I was shooting from hand and lacking a stabilizer, had to make sure the focus is steady. The common wisdom says, camera body counts much less than the lens, well, if you shoot in low light conditions, you soon face the limits of the camera you are using when it comes to ISO sensitivity and auto focus precision. There are a lot you can do in post production and modern cameras usually have internal noise reduction, but more expensive camera bodies will have better performance in low light, you should never forget that.
