The Olympus OM-1 Guide is a fully comprehensive guide (65000 words) covering everything you could want to know about how to use this incredible camera, fully illustrated with example images, tables and graphics and with a wealth of step by step instructions, walk-thoughts and tips.
It includes a menu walkthrough with clear directions of what to change and what to leave as default, explanations of why, full walk-throughs for customising buttons with lots of tips, setting up Custom Modes with a helpful table of useful settings and a wide variety of suggestions to try out. Custom Modes are personal to the user, so I give examples to consider and encourage users to think about the best use scenarios and explore the possibilities.
It explores all of the camera features such as Live Time, Live ND, Bracketing and Focus Stacking and goes into detail of how to actually use these out in the field with practical examples and images you can learn from and apply yourself.
As a Landscape photographer I also take you through the technical theory of photography in ‘Photography 101’ where we explore the Exposure Triangle, how to get great Depth of Field, learn how to nail exposure, improve your composition and even tips on how to plan your shots with tips on Apps to use. We also explore Processing with tips on which applications to explore and how to develop a good workflow.
