Exposure to the right with Olympus OMD


Exposure to the right has always been important in digital photography. Thats the best way to record the most information camera can capture. Olympus cameras, OMDs and most Pen-cameras, can be configured so that your exposure is perfect everytime. 

I made a little tutorial video on how to set up the menus so for the best practice to get perfect exposired. This method was firsr discovered by a finnish photographer Pekka Potka. His blog post about it is no longer available so I made a new one.

 

The steps to set up your camera:

1. Shooting menu 1 > the triange (4th from top) > raw 

2. Shooting menu 1 > Picture Mode > contrast -2, saturation -2

3. Custom Menu D > Info settings > info >Highlight & Shadow: On (Histogram: Off) 

4. Custom Menu D > Histogram Settings > Highlight 254-245 and Shadow 1-8

5. Custom menu D > LiveBoost: Off

6. Custom Menu G > Color Space: AdobeRGB

7. Custom Menu G > AutoWB > Keep Warm Color: Off

 

The screen shot from Lightroom shows the histogram of the image that was shown in the video:

As you can see the histogram is almost perfect for and the exposure is correct.

Be sure to watch the video for some more info. Remember to subscibe my YouTube-channe:
