Better to ETTR with Olympus EM1 MKII

One of the things I like about photography is you never stop learning. It's over 12 months since I swapped camera systems from Pentax to Olympus and I thought I'd pretty much learnt nuances of my Olympus EM1 MII. However the other night I found out something by making what I thought was a mistake.
Usually when photographing Barn Owls if the owl flies in front of a dark background I use -0.7 to -1 exposure compensation so stop the owls light plummage overexposing. Recently I was too slow and just took the photos at the cameras exposure, this gave me what looked like on the camera LCD an over exposed image which normally I'd delete (see bottom image below). This time I thought I'd keep the image and see what I could do in post processing in Capture One Pro.
To my surprise after decreasing the exposure my -1.2 in Capture One all the details in the owl plummage were there (see top image).
This has got me thinking on my next outing I'm going to try leaving the camera to control the exposure and see how many spoiled images I do actually get.

  1. It is better to be an ETTR with the Olympus EM 1 with the KM 2 that is a heading of this complete descriptive essay or article. S.R Miler photography is a showcase of the law assignment help that is a capture of owl photography with the containment of labels like exposure, Olympus, and the wild life as well with the creativity.

  3. You are right. I was a photographer for almost 5 years and I used to capture wildlife animals. I have taken so many crazy photos that were taken up by Natural Geographic which actually got me a contract for 3 years. Right now, I am finding education dissertation topics for my bachelor in Photography and once I have found them, then I will think of going abroad for higher studies and jobs.
