1. Low ISO Settings

To reduce the noise in the image, keep the ISO low. Increase it only when absolutely necessary. Higher ISO settings are suitable when you want to keep away from camera shake, or perhaps motion blur.

The slightest decrease in ISO settings are enough to make huge changes at reducing the noise in images, especially when they are at the highest ISO values.

2. Tripods and Camera Features

It will be of great convenience if you have a tripod. Attach your camera to your tripod. That way, you can have your camera set to the slowest ISO (ISO 100 will be good) with very little noise.

This method is applicable if your subjects are static and in low light condition. Better yet, if you camera has the Long Exposure Noise Reduction feature, make use of it!

3.  Keep Away From Heat

Are you aware of the fact that your image noise can increase significantly when your camera’s sensor is hot? When you photograph under a hot and humid condition, remember to always keep your camera away from being under direct sunlight.

Whenever you aren’t using your camera, keep it away in a bad. That’ll be the best option in such circumstances. When in winter, do not ever leave your camera near the radiator.

4. Shoot In RAW

When possible, shoot in RAW. Shooting in RAW makes it possible for you to tweak and make necessary editing towards the settings. This way, you can reduce the noise in images when you convert the files with your processing software. Noise reduction is applied in-camera when you shoot in JPEGs.

5. Check The Noise

When you use the Detail tab in Adobe Camera Raw, begin with Noise Reduction. Set to 25 for Color. Set to 0 for Luminance. After that, zoom in and take a look at the image at 100%. This makes it possible for you to adjust these sliders so that it will suit the shot.
