Photo Tips – High ISO to create a dramatic atmosphere

Here’s a little pic I took a few hours ago just to show a little trick I sometimes use when I want to create a more dramatic atmosphere in my pics.

  • Adjust the ISO-level really high. This will create a more pixel-like effect. In this pic I used 3200 during shady day-light
  • Use the angle of the sun to create the dramatic lighting
  • If you have a less “good” camera it’s sometimes even easier. The new ones are sometimes just to good 🙂

Hope this can help you get more drama in some of your future pics (unless you already used this little trick)
