This article discusses some handheld flower photography options and features a range of images captured using various cameras and techniques. The majority of the photographs illustrated in this posting were created using an E-M1X.
I recently had the opportunity to photograph some dragonflies at the RBG (Royal Botanical Gardens) that were frequenting one of the ponds. The breeze was a bit calmer than it has been in the past so I decided to try my hand at some Handheld Hi Res images, as well as capturing some dragonflies in flight.
This article features some Handheld Hi Res HHHR butterfly test images captured last week at the Niagara Butterfly Conservatory. It has probably been over 18 months since I did any photography at this facility due to COVID 19 restrictions. Needless to say, I was a bit rusty. It didn’t take too long to get back in the grove though. 🙂
This article features five M.Zuiko 100-400 mm HHHR test images captured at the Royal Botanical Gardens, along with 100% crops of each. As regular readers know I enjoy pushing myself and my camera gear with various challenges, just to see what will result. On a personal basis I don’t spend any time pixel peeping my images… but I do appreciate that some readers would like to see some 100% crops periodically so I included them in this article.
This article shares some early spring HHHR (Handheld High Resolution) images of flowers captured earlier today in my yard. With the various restrictions and lock down measures that are in place, it is always good to get out in some fresh air to photograph whatever subjects we can find.
This article shares some experimentation I did in post processing when revisiting HHHR bird images. I’d like to thank one of our readers, Brian Bullock, for providing the creative spark for this posting. These photographs were captured at Bird Kingdom in Niagara Falls, Canada.
Some testing done by the folks at Photonstophotos shows that the E-M1X’s Handheld Hi Res mode HHHR increases dynamic range. And, not just by a fraction, but to a significant degree. If you have not visited Photonstophotos before I would encourage you to do so. This is a great website that provides a wealth of information.
This article features a range of screwdriver handheld macro images. Many folks around the world are in various states of lockdown, so I chose this subject matter as many of us can do this photographic exercise at home.
This HHHR extreme noise test shows a detailed comparison of HHHR (handheld hi res) versus standard resolution images. I’d like to thank one of our readers, Colin McNaught, for his suggestion to compare a Handheld Hi Res (HHHR) image to a standard resolution image. Continue reading HHHR Extreme Noise Test
