High ISO opens up a new world

Finding the use of ISO 400 restrictive as part of my MA projects but its a great discipline.

How spoiled we are nowadays as a whole new world has opened up allowing us to take pictures without flash for some subjects.  The Downs Syndrome work I have been doing is shot at ISO 5000 and higher in a very dark church hall.  I like the way the images look and can’t help thinking this work could not have been done in the past as it would have required flash and would have changed the whole look/scene/interaction.

If anything I rue the loss of inherent grain lost when I moved away from push processed film but at large sizes grain starts to appear and I am very much in the camp which likes grain.
