    Round & Round

    I bought a like-new (347 shutter count) Olympus E-M10 mkiii last night to compliment my first generation E-M10’s The features appealing to me, were the improved video (including 4K) and image stabilization that is very close to using a gimbal. I realized a few other changes that I will value as...

    TINY THINGS

    I haven’t used the macro lens (35mm Olympus) that I got when I was home In Canada a few months ago. Haven’t found bugs or a way to get them still at 1/2 inch from the lens, and I’m realizing that it is hard and takes a lot of patience and controlled environments. I grabbed a camera with the...

    Fun with lightning strikes

    We had a massive thunder and lightning storm tonight with lighten streaking everywhere across the sky - from one end of the city to the other. Massive pouring rain made stepping outside or driving virtually impossible. So unfortunately I was not in an ideal situation to be creative with my setup...

    Olympus OM-D E-M1 thoughts?

    Hoping I am placing this in the correct forum (I saw two that mentioned these camera systems). I am a Canon DSLR user and currently love my 7D for shooting local sports and assignments, but I'm longing for something smaller/lighter for street photography and carrying around on...

    Mussel in the sand

    An attempt to capture the stark simplicity of a common Mussel embedded in beach sand, in just about the most interesting light that a beach would have to offer, and in hyper-detail using an extraordinary (but cheap and forgotten) lens from the 1970s - on B&W film, of course. Olympus OM-1...

    My World: Pop Soda Fire

    (Hand-printed in the darkroom on 12x16in paper, Kodak TMY2-400 (35mm) film, Olympus OM-3Ti, Zuiko 35mm f/2.0) During a drive down to the coast (to visit my parents) with my wife, we stopped at a very small, derelict town (close to Richmond, Western Cape, ZA) to refuel. The scene next to the...

    Hidden Emotions (at the Frontier)

    We rarely show our hearts completely - we always hide seemingly small corners, fleeting emotions, and small ideas. They all go unshared. Comments: One of the very first worthwhile images I produced with 35mm B&W film, and only printed a year later in the darkroom as I slowly get more...
