This article features a selection of hawk image rescue attempts that I did in post processing this morning. As regular readers will know I recently added Topaz Denoise AI to my standard post processing approach.
It’s been about 2 weeks since I began experimenting with integrating Topaz AI into my post processing workflow. During this period I’ve had a number of personal emails from readers asking if I’ve decided to keep using DxO PRIME or switch to Topaz Denoise AI. Most also wanted to know if I would be using Topaz Sharpen AI on a regular basis. I’ve finally reached a decision.
This article shares a series of f/13 high ISO test images captured handheld with Olympus camera gear.
Like many other photographers I’ve been investigating the recently announced M.Zuiko 100-400 mm f/5-6.3 IS super telephoto zoom lens. The fact that this lens will accept M.Zuiko MC-14 and MC-20 teleconverters really appeals to me, since I own the 2X version. Using it with the 100-400 zoom would mean shooting at high ISO values with an aperture of f/13 at least some of the time.
This short article provides information on Topaz AI system requirements for readers who are considering using these software programs.
This article discusses working with overcast landscape images in post, and some of the simple approaches that can be used. To help illustrate some of these techniques, this posting shares six pairs of photographs. An out-of-camera jpeg, as well as an image produced from the corresponding RAW file.
As photographers we have many software choices available to us. Over the years I’ve had suggestions from readers about the advantages of moving to new, or different, programs. This article discusses the potential advantage of staying with software programs that we already own and have some experience using.
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.
During our trip to Ireland last year my wife and I visited Muckross House, and participated in a guided tour. Unfortunately no photography is allowed on the inside of the property. This article shares a selection of exterior photographs and discusses Muckross House post processing approaches.
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. Throughout all of those years I had never once stopped to create an image of the steel mill after dark. I decided then and there that I’d return before sunrise to photograph that steel mill at night.
