I'm pretty pleased with this one as I've shot and edited it, though I'm always looking to get better.

With the amount of shows that I shoot at high ISO, one might think I would be more skilled at noise reduction. Nope! I usually rely on Lightroom's defaults, sometimes increasing them just a little bit. So, show me what you do with this one, and tell me how and why. Ideally in Lightroom/ACR, but if you can get better results in another program, tell me.

Apologies to those few of you who can't open a DNG - I've already converted it upon import.

Disclaimer: The close in-camera crop is because an audience member was holding a cell phone right up underneath the edge of the frame. In retrospect, I should have shot wider and just cloned it out.

Honestly, I like your edit just fine, but what the hey :)

Here's my quick five-minute attempt!

I didn't quite nail the skin tone, but here's the somewhat relevant settings for noise/sharpening (using LR5):

Sharpening:
Amount: 90
Radius: 1.8
Detail: 32
Masking: 29

Noise Reduction:
Luminance: 60
Detail: 50
Contrast: 0
Color: 25
Detail: 50
Smoothness: 50

In general, I like a bit of noise (like in your edit) as it reminds me of film grit.

But if smoothness is desired, I combine heavy noise reduction with aggressive sharpening and heavy masking.

In this case:

1. Zoom in to 100% and under "Noise Reduction", crank "Luminance" until the solid blue background parts don't show noise patterning anymore (this was at about 50-60)

2. Hold the "Option" key and, under "Sharpening", crank "Radius" until I can solidly see the details in her lips and hairpiece (about 1.8-2.0)

3. Hold the "Option" key and, under "Sharpening", crank "Amount" until the eyelashes pop (about 90)

4. Zoom back out, hold the "Option" key and, under "Sharpening", crank "Masking" until just the outline of the girl are showing (since it was a pretty solid background, I just kept pushing until the background went black, which was about 29-30)

Clearly lots of texture and detail got lost doing this, but this general concept can totally be dialed back to taste!

Dirty little secret - I've used this technique for quick-and-dirty skin smoothing, even on low-ISO images. It's not the right way to do it and doesn't work for every shot, but it's quick, effective, and doesn't require me to use a brush!

Something that can be emphasized from the last post is the use of the Masking tool (in the Sharpening section). The masking tool is designed to decrease sharpening in "smoother" areas, ones which can typically show more noise, and the background of this shot is a good example of a target for Masking!

Thanks both, good info.

At this resolution, I do like the skin-smoothing effect of the noise reduction. I'm always afraid of overdoing any skin smoothing, so I generally err on the side of less.

The dark outline around her arms is a little distracting, though overall I like the edit.

I didn't bother with skin tones, mainly some topaz denoise with aggressive settings

I pulled the exposure down about a stop and then used a radial gradient to reestablish the exposure on the subject. The NR settings are not that aggressive and really don't need to be - the 5DIII shows nice fine grain in the background (the underexposed area). The subject is well exposed and looks great.

That aside - this is where ACR and Adobe's profile is strange. I'm not a big fan of Adobe Standard most of the time anyway, but this example is pretty out there. The tint on the subject from the lighting is obviously a purple/violet. The background is a deep blue for the Adobe Standard rendering. When one switches to Camera Faithful or Camera Neutral, you get a background that is more compatible with the tint on the subject.

You can manipulate the look with the color primaries and saturation sliders in the Camera Calibration tab.

Of course, I was not there, so I don't know what is more "correct". Add to that, all three of the posted images here were converted by ACR to sRGB, where most of the blue background in Adobe Standard (and to a lesser degree the purple of the other two conversions) is out of the sRGB gamut.

You did a great job at capturing a tough shot.

Here's what I came up with. This was done using Photoninja as the raw processor then finished back in Photoshop.

Capture One, Neutral DNG profile. The variety across raw converters is fascinating....

I'm pretty pleased with this one as I've shot and edited it, though I'm always looking to get better.

This took one click and a couple of seconds using the default settings in Imagenomic Noiseware (external link).

Thanks all for your contributions. The variety in the background in the different raw processors is pretty amazing. The background was actually mostly blue for this shot, but maybe not as deep and saturated as any of us made it.

This was a case of many different lights - different colors, shapes, and intensities.

The subject is primarily lit by a yellow/white spotlight from far away (note the darkest shadow of the microphone & stand), secondarily by two variable-color LED stage lights at the front corners of the stage - probably blue-purple at the point, and lastly by two rows of colored stage lights on the ceiling at the front of the stage and at the back of the stage.

The background is lit by the low stage lights mentioned above, and by the ceiling lights.

Here's a shot of the venue before the show, I was standing in a chair with the 14mm. Sorry for the blown highlights. For this shot of this performer, I was standing right behind the back row of chairs, essentially the bottom-right corner of this venue shot.

As the performers move around the stage, and as the stage manager adjusts the stage lighting and tracks with the spotlight, the lights play differently on the performers and on the set. It certainly makes for a good variety of interesting looks!
