Recently I've become a little bit more interested in TRYING to get nice noisy pictures. In certain cases, I managed to get it really good, and ended up with some prints that had a nice "grainy" look to them. But I also tend to find that making my images SUPER noisy on screen doesn't translate to accentuated grain. Beyond a certain point, prints look less "grainy" and just look like they were prints of an image with too much noise.
I'm just wondering if anyone has any tips for getting a really good looking grainy look. I already try shooting at the highest ISO possible, but I'm still not quite satisfied. At 8.5x11, most of the pictures are still a little bit too clean for my tastes. And if I try to accentuate grain with post processing, that usually just makes the noise UGLY.
Any tips for really accentuating and enhancing low-ISO/low-light noise, and actually getting it to look GOOD (in print)?
