Franklin Hills Vineyard/InVision

A couple of weeks ago I lead a workshop to the Franklin Hills Vineyard on behalf of ArtsQuest for the InVision Photo Festival. We had near perfect conditions and a fantastic group of people. In addition to all of the great photo opportunities, we were able to sample some wonderful wine at the end of the day. All images are shot with the Olympus OM-D E-M1 MkII.

Fall’s Final Finale 2017

Yesterday I hiked at Jacobsburg State Park in hopes of finding some final colors of the year. To my surprise, there were vibrant colors all over the place. Temperatures in the early morning hours were in the teens. But the sunshine made up for the chill in the air. In addition to the colors, there were ice formations, reflections, fungi and did I say sunshine! All of the following images were shot handheld with the Olympus OM-D E- M1 MkII paired with the M.Zuiko ED 12-100mm f4.0 IS PRO.

Bhutan

A couple of years ago I visited Bhutan with a few fellow photography friends. It is one of the most beautiful places I have had the pleasure of visiting. It is located in the Eastern Himalayas and is bordered by Tibet & India. Bhutan does not measure their success by gross domestic product, but by a happiness factor and, as such, it is noted as one of the happiest places on our earth. From a photography perspective, I found Bhutan to be one of the most beautiful and colorful places I have ever seen.

Shortly after my trip, I did I did an exhibit of my images at the State Theatre in Easton, PA. The image sizes were 48″ x 36″ and 40″ x 30″. I mention this because I often get asked, can you make large prints with the Olympus system (all images were shot with the E-5). I can tell you, without hesitation, the answer is YES.

The following is a sampling of some of my favorite Images:

Roots

I was in Sarasota Florida a few weeks ago and decided to focus on my roots.

Camera: Olympus OM-D E-M1 MkII with the M.Zuiko 12-100mm f4.0 PRO. All images created in camera with “Monochrome” setting.

Trexler Park – Long Exposures

This past weekend I had it in my head that I wanted to accomplish some long exposures in an area by a beautiful foot bridge in Trexler Park, Allentown, PA. Having been there the week before, I had a pre-conceived plan of how I wanted to approach the composition. The only thing I needed was the cooperation of Mother Nature. She was a bit finicky at the start. But in the end, she came through for me. Note: All of the following images utilized a 10 stop neutral density filter and were taken with the Olympus OM-D E-M1 MkII paired with the M.Zuiko ED 7-14mm f2.8 PRO.

ISO 64, 10mm, f/16, 60.0 secs.

This next image was taken using Olympus’ “Live Composite” mode. By using this approach, I am able to create a more painterly effect in the sky. This is accomplished by setting the camera to expose every 2 seconds. The total time on this image was 3 minutes.

ISO 200, 9mm, f/5.6, 180 secs

This final image is a shot of an old hunting cabin adjacent to the the foot bridge.

ISO 200, 10mm, f/10, 60.0 secs.

Lehigh Gorge State Park (2 of 2)

As a follow up to the previous post I did, I went back to the Gorge 2 weeks later. It was amazing to see the change with the temperatures dropped. I was also experimenting with Olympus’s new 12-100 f4.0 PRO lens. With this camera & lens combination you achieve up to 6.5 shutter speed steps of compensation. The long exposure shots in this post are 2 seconds long and handheld. I continue to be impressed with the image stabilization technology.

Lehigh Gorge State Park (1 of 2)

A short while ago I decided I wanted to do some winter hiking in the Lehigh Gorge State park. It is located just outside of Weatherly, PA and encompasses two counties, Luzern & Carbon. The park follows the Lehigh River and includes some beautiful waterfalls & ice formations. I spent a fair amount of time around Buttermilk Falls. I brought my Olympus OM-D E-M1 MkII with me. I wanted to see how I could do with hand held long exposures. The second image in this series was hand held for almost one full second. I have some other shots that went almost 3 seconds. I continue to be amazed at the internal image stabilization of this camera.
