Knowing a Location

Sunrise Over Columbus - Panasonic GX7 with Olympus 75-300mm (click to enlarge)

It’s been a little while since my last article, but be assured: I’ve got lots in the pipeline (including a review of the Panasonic GX7).  Today I’m going to touch on something I think is very important for photographers who shoot outdoors, and that’s getting to really know a location.  It’s especially important to know …

A Quick Walk Around Ohio State

Reflected Columns - Knowlton Hall, The Ohio State University - Fuji X-E1 with Fujinon XF 14mm f/2.8

I stopped by the Ohio State campus on the way home from work today and took about a 45 minute walk down to the Horseshoe, and back, and took some shots with the Fuji 14mm f/2.8.  What an incredible lens this is.  Extremely sharp, well built…a joy to shoot with.  Stay tuned for a bunch …

Before Dawn, After Dusk

City at Night, Columbus, OH - Fujifilm X-E1 with Fujinon XF 18-55mm f/2.8-4 (Click to Enlarge)

Took a little bit of time before and during a break in a long work day to take some shots in the pre-dawn light, and the early night today, involving my city’s lovely skyline.  As you can tell from the images below, the wind was quite a bit calmer this morning.  Both of the shots …

15 Minute Street Shooting

I had a meeting downtown just after lunch today, so I shortened my eating time by about 15 minutes to allow that time on my lunch break for shooting.  I parked where my meeting was and then walked around just in the 2-3 block area right around for a little while, grabbing only my Fuji …

Evening Fog on the City

Columbus in the Night Fog - Olympus OM-D E-M5 with Panasonic 14mm f/2.5

Was at work late last night, and stopped very quickly on the way home for a few shots, as a fog had settled over the city.  Just snagged my OM-D with the tiny Panasonic 14mm f/2.5 pancake, and got some nice shots.  Hope you enjoy! (Click any image to enlarge)

A Cold Evening

A Smoldering Sunset - Olympus OM-D E-M5 with Panasonic 35-100mm f/2.8 @ 35mm, f/5.6

For the first time in a long time, I really got a chance to go out and shoot for a bit.  I went downtown after work and got some shots of the sunset and the city at night.  I’m very much a proponent of the ‘gear doesn’t make the shot’ crowd, but on evenings like …

The City at Dusk


Tonight on the way home from work, I stopped to capture this. The sun was nearly below the horizon and the sky was overcast, but just enough sunlight remained to give a kiss of light to the windows of the city.

Downtown at Dusk

Franklin County Courthouse - Olympus E-M5 with Panasonic 7-14mm f/4

Went downtown after a long day of work to take a few pictures.  I wanted to get some shots of the new County Courthouse, which is a pretty cool building.  Got there shortly before sunset which gave me some good light.  Then, as I walked back to the car, which I parked at Bicentennial Park, …
