Why Is Noise Reduction Such a Big Deal?
Noise is a big consideration in shooting pictures at night. We push our cameras to capture the best details possible in dark conditions and the result can often be a little noisy. What can you do about it? Well, part of the answer lies in the shooting techniques but there's more on the post-processing side as well. In the end, photographers have some good options available to them.

In-fact, with all the different approaches available for reducing noise in nightscape images, it can be a downright confusing to know what to use when. Darren and Mike got together and tested some of the most common methods available to determine what would be best to recommend and when.
