As I continue to enjoy using my Nikon, I'm trying to capture images in conditions that are more challenging for light. I've been taking pictures of people at work and often these are in difficult lighting conditions.
I've found some subject in the likes of forges, leather works (tannery) and a brewery. I do make careful use of flash but like to use the ambient light as much as possible.
My fastest lens is a 35mm f1.8, which is great fun to use.
Currently, I 'm using a D300 and find it a very capable camera but beyond an ISO of 800, the noise builds and the print size becomes an issue. I use Photoshop, Lightroom and Topaz so there are some opportunities for making some improvements whilst editing.
However, I would like to be able to push the ISO further and keep the noise down. Wouldn't we all?! The best solutions are of course the most expensive and heading off down the full-frame route is probably not going to work as I've tended to buy DX lenses.
Are there any suggestions for an upgrade, including buying a used camera body, that anyone has? Maybe there is a full-frame route?
