This week I’m sharing another similar image to last week. I also shot this at The Roaches on the same morning as but 20 minutes later, as the sun started to dissolve the mist. My only regret is not having set the camera to shoot RAW, as I mentioned in last week’s blog post.
The lens I used for this was my old Panasonic 45-150 which I’ve had a long time. I think I paid less than £150 pounds for it and checking Amazon (affiliate link) today it’s still under £180. This is such a good lens and has performed well for years. What struck me looking at this image is how good the quality is, especially combined with the G9’s pixel shift high-resolution setting. I’ve become a big fan of this technology and recently published an article detailing my experiences.
For the image I had the camera set to the 80.5M resolution and mounted on a tripod. The Panasonic 45-150 lens was at 150mm with an exposure of 1/50” at f/7.1 and ISO200. There’s also a small amount of post processing with the Nik Collection.
This Week’s YouTube Video
Now to this week’s YouTube video which is about Quick Mask editing. The Quick Mask is extremely useful when making selections in photos but for some reason not many people use it. That’s why I decided to publish this video where I demonstrate using the Quick Mask with the Selection Brush in Affinity Photo. And although I’m using Affinity Photo you can do the same thing with similar tools in Photoshop. This is well worth knowing about.
Finally, I will mention that my Lenscraft newsletter is mailing on Saturday 5th December 20. If you haven’t already subscribed, you can do so on the Newsletter page of Lenscraft as well as read the last 12 months newsletters.
I hope you like the photo, enjoy the video, and have a great weekend.
