The State Theatre In All Her Glory (color) 1 of 2

A couple of weeks ago I lead the annual “Behind the Curtain” photography workshop at the State Theatre in Easton, PA. This is always such a joy for me to photography this amazing gem. When you take the time to look at all of the incredible art in this place it’s almost overwhelming. I am breaking this post into two. This first one only includes color images and the next will be all monochromatic. All images were handheld (this is the first time I didn’t use a tripod) using the Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark II paired with the either the M.Zuiko ED 7-14mm f2.8 PRO, the ED 12-100mm f4.0 IS PRO or the ED 40-150mm f2.8 PRO.

Goschenhoppen Folk Festival

A little over a week ago I was introduced to this amazing festival. This is their 52nd one. I wasn’t sure what to expect. But I was totally delighted with the overall friendly nature of all of the volunteers. The people are more than glad to chat with you and explain the specifics of their reenactments. Goschenhoppen is one of the oldest continuously existing Pennsylvania German communities in America.  This geographic region occupies a small corner of southeastern Pennsylvania in Montgomery County. The event is put on by The Goschenhoppen Historians, Inc. which is organized to identify, preserve and disseminate the Pennsylvania German (Pennsylvania Dutch) folk culture and history of the Goschenhoppen region. The Folk Festival is designed as an educational family event to demonstrate various home skills and trades of the Goschenhoppen area from about 1750-1880. I will definitely be putting this on my calendar for next year.

Lemon Drinka

Every year I try to make the pilgrimage to the annual Kutztown Folk Festival. It is the oldest continuously operated folklife festival in America. This nine-day event draws visitors from all over the world. The festival provides insight into the traditions of the Pennsylvania Dutch and their fascinating way of life. I try to keep a low profile and thought the small but mighty Olympus PEN-F would be my camera of choice for this visit. It clearly did not disappoint. I used the prime M.Zuiko 17mm f1.8 lens for all of the images.

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.

Pittsburgh Architecture

A few weeks ago I was invited, on behalf of Olympus, to be a featured speaker for the annual PSA conference held this year in Pittsburgh PA. I was also asked to lead a photo walk. I had not been to Pittsburgh for quite sometime. A favorite aspect of photography for me is architecture. I wasn’t sure what to expect here. I was throughly impressed. There were gems at every turn. I look forward to going back and spending more time with these architectural marvels. All images were shot with the Olympus OM-D E-M1 MkII. The first image was taken by using the “Live Composite” setting on my camera with 4 second intervals for approximately 4 minutes at f/13.
