Rich: One issue you'll see in time lapse shooting, is Noise. …Now, there's lots of ways of getting rid of noise. …You can do it after the fact, or you can do it during the development stage when …you're working inside of Camera Raw. Let's start with the first place that you …can tackle it. In this particular file, I've just …revisited the one we previously fixed. And it's defintiely looking better, but …what I want to do here is go in and take a look at it at 100% magnification. …In fact, we'll jump to 200% to make it even easier to see.…
Notice that we have some noise in the shadowy regions. …You can particularly see it over here, in these gray tone areas. …This was a long exposure, and as such, it was a bit prone to noise. …This shot was made over a three second period at ISO 800, so the likelihood of …noise is relatively high. Let's go over to the Detail tab, and take …advantage of both Sharpening and Noise Reduction. …I'll start with Noise Reduction here. And just bring up the Luminance Noise Reduction.…
