E-M1X ISO Invariance Test

This article shares the results of an Olympus OM-D E-M1X ISO invariance test. My base image for this test was a tripod assisted photograph captured at ISO-6400. I then took successive images at ISO-3200, ISO-1600, ISO-800, ISO-400 and ISO-200 while shooting in Manual mode.

Steel Mill at Night

Sometimes inspiration can find us when we least expect it. A few days ago I was at LaSalle Park photographing some birds when I happened to look across Hamilton harbour at the local steel mill. It occurred to me that for more than three decades I’d driven past this facility countless times at night.

I decided then and there that I’d return before sunrise to photograph that steel mill at night.

Working with Small Sensor ISO-10000 Images

Sometimes those of us with small sensor cameras capture images at high ISO values out of necessity. As soon as we press our shutter release we wonder if there will be much we can do in post to overcome the impact of using a high ISO. This article shares three examples of working with small sensor ISO-10000 images in post. It is good to remember that any time we do work with RAW files it is ‘to taste’. You may, or may not, like the results that are illustrated in this article. At the end of the article, I will be sharing some basic guidelines of the approach I used with these photographs.

Photographing Surfers

Very few of us have the opportunity to photograph surfers as they use their skills on monster waves during international competitions. Many of us do observe surfers riding more modest waves, and we often capture some photographs of the action. This article discusses some of the factors that can be considered when photographing surfers, as well as some thoughts on post processing. The images in this article were captured in New Zealand during a 2016 trip. Continue reading Photographing Surfers
