Examples: Manzanar (5DM3)

Manzanar (near Lone Pine, CA) housed up to 11,000 Japanese who were relocated during wartime. See the March 16, 2015 discussion.

Images are presented in both color and black and white, which seems fitting given the era in which Manzanar was built. Toggle to compare.

Examples all shot handheld.

Diffraction-mitigating sharpening was used for images in the f/11 and beyond range. See Mitigating Micro Contrast Losses from Diffraction Blur in Making Sharp Images.

Diglloyd DAP is DSLR-oriented, but also contains workflow and other topics. Much of the focus is on Canon and Nikon but also Pentax and Pentax medium format.

Special emphasis is placed on lens evaluation, focusing on Canon and Nikon and Sigma lenses, but with a few others like Rokinon/Samyang.

  • Make better images by learning how to get the best results right away.
  • Save money by choosing the right lens for your needs the first time, particularly some of the new Sigma Art lenses vs Nikon and Canon.
  • Workflow discusses image organization, raw conversion and post processing. Many examples show processing parameters for direct insight into how the image was converted.
  • Jaw-dropping image quality found nowhere else utilizing Retina-grade images up to full camera resolution, plus large crops [past 2 years or so].
  • Real world examples with insights found nowhere else. Make sharper images just by understanding lens behavior you won’t read about elsewhere.
  • Aperture series from wide open through stopped down, showing the full range of lens performance and bokeh.
  • Optical quality analysis of field curvature, focus shift, sharpness, flare, distortion, and performance in the field.
