I’ll start with another apology for not posting last Friday. I was out of the country visiting my daughter in France and had intended to post this from France. Unfortunately, technology is now so secure that I couldn’t gain access because I was in another country. All attempts to verify myself were met with a further request to verify my location because I wasn’t at home. What a mess.
Anyway, here’s the photo that I wanted to share with you together with a useful tip.
I shot this using my Panasonic G9 and Leica 12-60 lens at 16mm. It’s a tripod-mounted shot at 0.8”, f/7.1 and ISO800. Whilst I shot it at ISO800 in low light, the image was as clean as a whistle when I zoomed in to 100% magnification.
The reason why is that I used the G9’s high-resolution mode. This produced an 80Mpixel RAW file where the image was over 10,000 pixels on the long edge. It appears the in-camera process to create the high-resolution RAW file also cleaned up the noise extremely effectively. It’s a tip that’s well worth remembering and could be useful.
Now to the other point of sharing this photo. I took it whilst filming my latest YouTube video looking at shooting landscape photography with a micro four thirds camera. You can watch the video on YouTube (https://youtu.be/RJgh_VGDS_8) and it’s less than 10 minutes.
This video is something of a departure from my usual style of “how to” video. But the question I have is why do you watch YouTube photography videos, or if you don’t, why not?
If you have a moment to share your thoughts in the comments, I would be grateful.
I hope you like the photo and have a great weekend.
