The art of noise

This photo was recently taken on a mobile phone and just shows how easy it is to take photos that you may wish to hang on your wall. It is amazing how technology has advanced but there will always be limits to what you can do with your photographic equipment.

Noise is the digital equipment of film grain. It is the speckles of colour that you would see on the right if it wasn't for the conversion to monochrome. However you can see the limitations of the sensor in the way that straight lines become steps.

Some may see this as a technological limitation but others prefer to call it art.

Happy snapping
