The High Line with Bergen County Camera

I had the honer and pleasure to lead a photowalk at one of my favorite places in the Big Apple, the High Line. The photowalk was arranged by Bergen County Camera and sponsored by Olympus. The day was slightly overcast which, for me, means Black & White. All of the images were shot using the Olympus OM-D E-M1 MkII. A favorite style I like to employ on an overcast day is using “Dramatic Tone”. This is a mode option built into the camera (most of these shots used this mode).

Hickory Run State Park

Recently I ventured up to Hickory Run State Park. I have not been there in many years and was pleasantly surprised to see that has not changed much. I hiked along the Shades of Death Trail to see several amazing waterfalls. It was a beautiful spring morning which one enhanced my photographic opportunity. All images were taken with the Olympus OM-D E-M1 MkII and paired with the M.Zuiko ED 12-100mm f4.0 IS PRO. The first two images were shot utilizing the Olympus High Resolution mode which creates an 80 megapixel picture.

 

 

Later in the morning I hiked the Hawk Falls Trail to Hawk Falls.

Niagara Falls

As many of you know, I enjoy photographing waterfalls. But, I never photographed the infamous Niagara. Last year I had the opportunity to do so. I was also fortunate to arrange some shots from a helicopter. However, I wanted to schedule my visit during a time frame when it would be the least crowded. So I picked February, assuming it would be extremely cold. Luck would have it, that the temps reached into the 60 + degree Fahrenheit range. The good news was that the preceding weeks were all below freezing and there was still plenty of snow and ice around.  All of the images were shot with the Olympus OM-D E-M1 MkII. Be forewarned, if you view the video clips and you are susceptible to motion sickness, the second clip might cause you some discomfort.

Glen Onoko Falls

Last week I ventured up to the frozen Glen Onoko Falls in Carbon County, Pa. It was incredibly beautiful. But incredibly difficult. Once you went past the first set of falls, the trail turned into a sheet of ice. It would have been almost impossible had it not been for the boot chains I had.

Autumn’s Last Light

I shot these images a couple days ago (before our snowstorm) on a frosty morning in the Lehigh Parkway. I suspect these may be the last ones with color until next year. All images were shot with the Olympus OM-D E-M1 MkII and the M.Zuiko ED 12-100mm f4.0 PRO lens.

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.
