For the 3d things i don't like them much, sort of technical approach I reserve for Aerial photos...
As I favor longer lenses, I do use a monopod, makes a nice walking stick...:-)
But usually I do not have too much light problem. I use for professionnal use the Fuji 800, nice fine grain, finer than a 100 ISO a few years ago (aah, progress...!).
When I do pictures for myself I usually go to Ilford FP5 125 ISO black and white of course...:-)
I feel the "grainy" pictures is a left over from the 60's and the first reflexes with motor drive.. Whiiirrrr, clap, schlock....:-)
When you see old photos, they don't have that grainy look (15 ISO I believe in those times)...
I don't really have a favourite... But if you ask... Then maybe Doisneau and Boubat (follow the link)...:-)
