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.

Winter’s Chill

A winter hike at Jacobsburg State Park. All of the images were shot handheld with the new Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark II and the M. Zuiko 7-14mm f2.8 PRO lens (my favorite combination).

Tank Hollow (foggy) Trail

This past weekend I went to a new hiking location called Tank Hollow. For those of you living in the NE, you may recall this entire part of the country was covered in heavy fog most of the weekend. I thought it would be a good opportunity to try out my trusty water resistant Olympus OM-D E-M1 MkII. I got soaked, the camera got soaked and we both lived to tell about it.

Manhattan from Brooklyn

A few weeks ago I traveled to New York with my friend and fellow Olympus Trailblazer Alex McClure. Our plan was to photograph the city from Brooklyn. We had done this back in November from the area around the bridges, however, we ran out of time to get shots from the this location (in front of the piers). This time, when we arrived at this location, we were greeted with a beautiful evening and a wonderful sky. I had two camera bodies with me and I used both of them for the following images (The Olympus OM-D E-M5 MarkII and the PEN-F). After we photographed the city skyline we walked up to and over the Brooklyn Bridge. The remainder of the images were from the bridge. The one with the car headlights and taillights was done in “Live Composite” mode.
