Olympus DSLR Spoof Video see what we've been talking about for so long with the new Olympus mirrorless system go to this link:


It's a great little spoof, but it makes a pretty big point - you don't have to have giant DSLR cameras to get amazing quality images!!  Its a system a you will actually WANT to carry with you!

Long Exposure and Night Photography goes LIVE!!

Some really amazing features have been built into the OMD line of Olympus cameras.  The completely change how photographers do long exposure/bulb and night time photography.  These features are called: 

  • Bulb

  • Live Time

  • Live Composite

Each of these features involve long exposures, but they have slightly different ways of going about it. Historically using BULB mode meant that you override the camera's built in limitation on how long the shutter is timed to stay open.  In normal shooting, the shutter's limit is anywhere between 30-60 seconds depending

Savannah Weekend Workshop - Shot Stories

Counting down to our Savannah Weekend Workshop - here is one of our favorite Savannah photos, taken at Fort Pulaski - one of the many stops during our weekend. The key to this shot is making sure the shutter speed is fast enough to capture the sudden explosion from the barrel, but not so fast that it only shows a small portion of the fire within the smoke plume. The other very important thing is using a camera that can shoot multiple frames per second very quickly.....

Its a good thing we had the Olympus OMD EM5 with its 9 frames per second with us that day. Dialed in at 1/500 second, we got several images of the smoke plume alone, but only one captured the plume with the full fireball as well. With quickly moving subjects such as a cannon blast, the EM5 (and the entire OMD system) is well equipped to handle the task.....


The Mirrorless Question.....?

We get this all the time....."I have a Canon/Nikon system.  I think I would like a mirrorless system, but I want to be able to use my current lenses on it....should I wait for Nikon/Canon to come out with a mirrorless system?"

Obviously, there are many schools of thought on this subject, but the following is our opinion.  A mirrorless system is an entirely new approach to photography and photography gear.  The camera and the lenses have been completely redesigned to provide the kind of quality previously only available in large, bulky pro and semi-pro DSLR systems. Personally, we don't see a whole lot of sense in putting a
