A Panorama Workflow Example

I was up on Mount Evans near Denver, Colorado with an Olympus E-PL5 camera and a 24-100mm equivalent lens. This is a 16MP camera and the mountains and valley were just too large to fit through that lens and onto that sensor.

Lessons from a photogenic place (repost)

I like this long exposure: Blue hour at the marina.  Olympus Hi-res mode, 13s, f/5.6, ISO 250, @ … Continue reading Empty Nest Syndrome

I haven’t been on a photo expedition recently, so this week I’ll cheat a bit and show some images that haven’t been on the blog before. Orlando Wetlands Park, October 2017. Olympus hi-res, two frame panorama converted to B&W.  I don’t convert sunrise photos to B&W very often, but the light in this one is … Continue reading Some Recent Photos
