What happens at ISO 20000?

What happens at ISO 20000? Well, pretty much a bit of grain. These photographs were taken with available light – believe me “available” is an overstatement. Two or three 40W lightbulbs, scattered along the stage, musicians moving all over the place. Even at f1.4 things were hard.
