Making of “Tigger with an Itch to Scratch” (Olympus E-M1 Mark II)

This image works well as a monochrome image due to drab light and the “mackeral tabby” markings on Tigger. That said, I am not sure that monochrome is better than color here—that’s a judgment call. But it does eliminate all the magenta/green color bokeh.

Capture: Olympus E-M1 Mark II color capture
Conversion: direct black and white conversion in Adobe Camera Raw
Post: none

Diglloyd Making Sharp Images articulates years of best practices and how-to, painstakingly learned over a decade of camera and lens evaluation.

Save yourself those years of trial and error by jump-starting your photographic technical execution when making the image. The best lens or camera is handicapped if the photographer fails to master perfect shot discipline. High-resolution digital cameras are unforgiving of errors, at least if one wants the best possible results.

  • Eases into photographic challenges with an introductory section.
  • Covers aspects of digital sensor technology that relate to getting the best image quality.
  • Technique section discusses every aspect of making a sharp image handheld or on a tripod.
  • Depth of field and how to bypass depth of field limitations via focus stacking.
  • Optical aberrations: what they are, what they look like, and what to do about them.
  • MTF, field curvature, focus shift: insight into the limitations of lab tests and why imaging performance is far more complex than it appears.
  • Optical aberrations: what they are, what they look like, and what to do about them.
  • How to test a lens for a “bad sample”.
