Architects of Air (Albesila)

Musikfest may be over. But, the memories from the Architects of Air experience located at Experienceplatz are still very vivid in my mind. I had the opportunity to lead a couple of exclusive workshops for ArtsQuest. The attendees were fantastic and the visuals in this place are off the chart. All images are hand held using the Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mk II paired with the M.Zuiko ED 7-14mm f2.8 PRO and the ED 8mm F1.8 Fisheye PRO.

This year’s structure was completely different from last year and was only the second time at Musikfest. This was the Architects of Air’s new 25th Anniversary Structure, a monumental inflatable structure designed to generate a sense of awe at the beauty of light and color. This latest luminarium uses a rectilinear grid of quadraxial pods, each approaching 17 feet high. Four of these colorful eggs provide the base for an imposing tree structure, while ten more eggs are opaque silver where, looking upward, you saw an inlaid geometric pattern of illuminated lines.

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).

The Beauties of Gurney Street

I was in Cape May, NJ last week for a presentation to the Photography Club of Cape May. Cape May is one of my very favorite places. For me I find it very relaxing and filled with all types of photographic opportunities. If I don’t have my Olympus OM-D E-M1 MkII with me, I always carry the ever trusty and versatile TG-5. The morning before my presentation, I had an hour or two to grab a couple of shots from Gurney Street. The handful of homes on this street are the famous Victorian Stockton Row (circa 1869). Since I was doing a presentation on Architectural photography, I thought is was quite appropriate to grab some shots here. All of the images were shot with the TG-5 and I must admit I am always blown away with the results of this little powerhouse.

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.

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.

Wisconsin State Capitol

Last weekend I had the opportunity to present a workshop on one of my favorite subjects, “Architecture” and to lead a photo walk to the Wisconsin State Capitol building in Madison. Both events were sponsored by Olympus for The Camera Company. This structure was amazing beyond my belief. This place stands as one on my top 5 places to photograph architecture in the United States. If you are anywhere near Madison, it is an absolute must see structure. I learned this building’s exterior dome is the largest granite dome in the world. I can’t wait to go back! All images were shot with the Olympus OM-D EM1 MkII paired with either the M.Zuiko 7-14 f2.8 PRO, ED 8mm f1.8 Fisheye PRO or the ED 12-100mm f4.0 IS PRO.

State Theatre

A couple of weeks ago I did the “Behind the Curtain” workshop & photo tour at the State Theatre in Easton, PA. This is always a fun event, particularly, since we are granted unobstructed access to this incredibly beautiful gem of a facility. I tell people, as photographers, we get to see the intricate nuances of the various design components in this theatre. Most people, and rightly so, go to the theatre to see a particular performance. However, for me, as a photographer, the main show is in the many incredible masterpieces within the structure. During this event I also had the opportunity to use the new Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark II camera. The reason I mention this is I always tell my participants to bring a tripod because of the low light. I now may need to rethink this position. All of the following images were handheld for between one second and 1/60 second at ISO 6,400. The image stabilization and image quality at this high ISO has surpassed all of my expectations. Take a look and you be the judge.
