Editing Images with Olympus camera Using Olympus Tutorial

In this video I will tell you how to retouch images with your Olympus camera.

I had OM-D E-M5 MkII as an example camera. The retouching method works pretty much the same way with every Olympus body.

Some Olympus bodies do not have the all features, OM-D E-M5, OM-D E-M10 MkII and Pen E-PL9 do not have the custom options when retouching images on those bodies. E-M5 is also missing the Art-filters.

Is digital photography real photography?

I have lately heard people saying that digital photography is not real photography. Some also considers Instagram to be bad for photography. I made a video about this. After you have watched the video, read this article that was written by Alfred Stieglitz in 1897. You will find that over hundred years ago the arguments were not that different. 

  

What makes a good photograph?

This is a question that everyone has a different answer. That is natural, because its a matter of taste. There is not a correct answer to this question just because of that. A grandmother might love a photo of her grandchild even though the photo is totally out of focus. For others it is most likely only a crappy photo that is out focus.

The World Press Photo announced the winners last Thursday (12.4.2018). Those photos are certainly good. Canon, one of the sponsors of the competition, made a survey and asked the participants what are the elements of a good photograph. The answers did not surprise me. 

In the linked video I go through those answers. What do you think? Do you agree with the results? Do you agree with me?

Sorry no link to the survey in english. Could not find it.
