From time to time I enjoy going back through older photographs, like some of my favourite landscape images featured in this posting. We get the opportunity to relive these creative moments. And, also remind ourselves of the creative process that led to the creation of the photographs.
This article features some photographs of a hummingbird quick visit which were captured using Bird AI Subject Tracking in combination with Pro Capture L. I used an E-M1X and M.Zuiko 100-400 mm f/5-6.3 IS zoom lens.
Thinking like a bird isn’t being a bird brain… but rather attempting to put ourselves inside the thought process of an avian subject. Observing a bird in an openminded manner sometimes allows us to gain a deeper sense of what it is going to do. What is making it anxious. Or aggressive. Or feeling connected to a decision that it is pondering.
This article shares some photographs from a recent dragonflies with MC-20 handheld test that I did at the Royal Botanical Gardens in Burlington Ontario. While my favourite teleconverter is the M.Zuiko MC-14, I do occasionally use the M.Zuiko MC-20 when I need some additional reach.
This article discusses some of the approaches that can be used when working around rolling shutter effect is required. As is often said, there is no such thing as a perfect camera. Everything photographic comes with some kind of trade-off. Some cameras are more prone to rolling shutter effects than others. So, if you experience some rolling shutter effects with your camera gear there are some things you can do to try to minimize these distortions.
This short article features 6 consecutive images of a dragonfly being attacked by a much smaller insect, perhaps of wasp of some sort. All of the photographs were captured handheld using my E-M1X’s Pro Capture H technology.
Sometimes taking a breath and experiencing the miracle of our bodies in that simple act, can be incredibly life affirming. We’re here for such a short period of time and squander so many of our precious moments with wasteful pursuits and unkind acts. We can fill our minds with a multitude of concerns. Some real. Some imagined. And… most won’t make any difference tomorrow. Next week. Or next year.
Knowing someone can be a daunting challenge as we stumble on our journey through a sea of humanity, emotions and experiences. The depth of our human experience is one of personal variability. Some lives are lived in a perpetual state of skimming the surface, barely scratching what it means to be human.
Depending on the camera gear a photographer owns, their choice for some additional stabilization or acquiring a difficult shooting angle, may come down to using a tripod or stool. It has been over three years since I began shooting with Olympus M4/3 camera gear and thus far I’ve not had any need to use any of my tripods or a monopod. This would change if I began to experiment with light painting using the Live Composite mode.
