This article shares a selection of telephoto foliage images, and discusses some of the issues that can be considered when composing this type of photograph.
A few months ago I was able to capture some images of male Red Breasted Mergansers in flight. Since I’ve been practicing social distancing diligently there’s been additional time to go through some older files over the past number of weeks as I’ve been spending more time in my home office.
This article features a selection of 20 consecutive photographs of a chickadee fighting back after it was challenged by another of its own species. This is one of those ‘slice of life’ image runs made possible by the Olympus Pro Capture H mode.
We have a cherry pie tradition in our family that we have maintained for many years and continued it during these challenging times with COVID-19.
For those of us who enjoy flower photography, remembering that less can be more is an important composition concept. The images in this article were captured during my Olympus Pro Loaner test period back in June 2019, using an M.Zuiko PRO 40-150 mm f/2.8 zoom lens.
This article discusses how you can estimate dynamic range differences between various cameras using published test data. This may help you evaluate various camera options in terms of brand, model and sensor size. In this article we have prepared overviews of Olympus OM-D E-M1X dynamic range test scores versus 20 different full frame and APS-C cameras from Canon, Nikon and Sony. This is a lengthy article so grab a coffee or make yourself some tea.
This article provides some APS-C sensor comparisons based on tests done by DxOMark. There are many assumptions made about how various sized sensors perform. For example, many camera reviews seem to assume that ‘newer is better’. Sometimes they even go so far as to criticize some cameras for using ‘old sensors’.
This article features a woodpecker doing a pre-flight crouch. A few readers who are starting to pursue bird photography have sent me emails and asked how a bird signals it is about to take flight. I thought these woodpecker images could help illustrate the pre-flight crouch that is commonly used by small birds.
It is interesting to contemplate how technology can redefine what is possible with photography. We all know how cell phone imaging has been decimating the camera market for the past decade or so. With all of the hype about full frame cameras these days, we seem to forget that cell phones have become globally dominant while using tiny sensors. Imaging technology like computational photography has been driving much of the success of cell phones.
