After a few months of being in one place in Colombia I've been on the road again for a little while now. I was expecting my next blog to be about southern Colombia - but actually nothing that exciting happened, (except maybe the wheel of the bus falling off while in motion). Instead of great weather for photography, I've had more than my fair share of dull cloud covered days, so I used some of my time to put together an article about my digital work-flow.
Part 1 deals with what to me is the most important part of photography - the time when you're actually out taking the image, and covers:
- raw -vs- JPG
- shooting modes
- "Noise Reduction" (or dark frame subtraction)
The It is specific to the camera I use - an Olympus E30, so will obviously be most relevant to those who use Olympus cameras.
Part I - Image Capture
Subsequent sections are almost ready, and will cover raw software, and post processing, and use these images from Ipailes in Colombia, and Ibarra in Ecuador as samples for comparing the software.
