The Future of Casual Photography is Here

Nokia 808 Pureview

Today at Mobile World Congress, Nokia launched their new 808 PureView.  It’s a smartphone.  A smartphone with a 41 Megapixel camera. I know what you’re thinking.  I thought the same thing:  Those have got to be the worst 41 megapixels in existence. That’s outright absurd.  And then I looked at the images.  This thing is …

Review: Olympus M.Zuiko 45mm f/1.8

Olympus M.Zuiko 45mm f/1.8

Introduction In June of 2011, Olympus announced two new prime lenses for the Micro 4/3 standard: the M.Zuiko 12mm f/2 and the M.Zuiko 45mm f/1.8.  Today I’m going to take a closer look at the 45mm f/1.8, which I have had the pleasure of shooting with for the past few months.  It was quite refreshing …

Pastel Petals - Panasonic GH2 with Leica 45mm f/2.8 Macro-Elmarit

Just a quick photo.  Grabbed the camera and shot this of the flowers I got my wife for Valentine’s day last week.  Used off camera flash from behind to give a little glow.

Night Street Photography

One thing I love about my little GX1 and my Olympus 12mm f/2, is that the combo makes for a great wide angle street shooting combination.  Even at night.  These were taken handheld at ISO 2500 and f/2.  Having a capable camera and wide, fast lens, make this kind of shooting possible, and because of …

The Evening Commute

Downtown Energy - Panasonic GX1 with Olympus 12mm f/2

On my way home late from work today, I decided to make a bookend post.  You may recall that I posted earlier with motion shots from my car on my morning commute a while back.  Well, the vibrant lights of the city at night make for much better evening abstracts.  Here are my two favorites.

Weekend Project – Revisiting Florence

The Duomo in Florence, Italy in Early Morning

On winter days like today, where it’s freezing cold and there’s gray overcast skies, it’s generally not a great time to go out and shoot outside.  If you have an opportunity to go out and find some great interior spaces to shoot (or you are lucky enough to live in a place that is having …
