I was at an Aikido seminar this weekend, and got a whole set of pictures, some of which I’d like to clean up so they look all nice.
I took them on my 35mm (Canon EOS 2000) on sports mode with Kodak 800 Max film and a Tamron 28-300mm zoom lens. They are mostly taken at about 200mm, and it’s a medium light environment.
I don’t think I could have gone ISO 400 without a beefy flash, so I don’t regret the speed choice, but they have 800-speed graininess to them, as well as some strange white spots interspersed around. I really like some of them, though, so I’d like to make them look as nice as I can.
If some of you photo types could give me some GIMP hints for this type of thing, it would be much appreciated.
Here’s a link to my favorite shot of the weekend, as an example. It’s uncropped and unshrunk, so it’s about a megabyte.
