Hi there, I took people advice and went out and actually tried to shoot something rather than just sit around talking about it. A friend and I went out and did a little spring dirt biking. I was so concerned about speed and aperature that I didn't notice my ISO was at 800. I believe this leads to the noise you can see in the riders sweater, and in the sand bank on pic 5. I haven't had any time to crop these (my hand is just in #1 trying to stop flaring) or anything so here there are. Please feel free to break them down and give me advice. Cheers! 1. Scenery shot 2. 3. 4. 5. Provided to show what I believe is noise from improper ISO. Thanks to anybody who can comment to help me out!
