An Evening Out. With Friends. In New Delhi. To eat pasta and stuff.
Shot on a Canon 550D, 50MM f/1.8 Lens.
It was a project done for fun, to test the low-light performance of Canon's 50mm f/1.8 lens.
The huge f/1.8 aperture allows a large amount of light to reach the camera's sensor, leading to relatively lower noise and, thus, better low-light performance. However, some noise is still visible in very dark situations, but that is due to the camera's on-board processor. Something of the level of a Canon 5d Mark II/III, with a full frame (35mm equivalent) sensor would come in handy at times like these.
Additionally, while allowing in more light, the fully open aperture also provides for a very shallow DoF. Such a depth of field creates very soft, smooth background blurs, and the subject in focus is, frankly, distinctively prominent. All in all, it allows for more creative flexibility.
