  1. Yesterday
  2. Hi, Last year I participated in 4 colective exhibitions at the Saphira & Ventura gallery, in New York City. Yesterday I participated in another exhibition in that gallery, but this time virtually. This pandemic is forcing people to become more and more creative. Feel free to visit it using the link below. Thank you. https://www.artsteps.com/view/5ef39a1562117c191f7f93cd?fbclid=IwAR2uFU5Pv0gSyQxHZGJeNgZOEwPHyRBWiPcmowB3dC-pZq0SrOc3mDY1wRM
  3. Last week
  4. Agreed. Olympus as a company is still strong and I suspect that with this sort of lens road map they will not be getting rid of anything very quickly. A humungous lens BTW.
  5. There will be lots of stories and conjecture from the internet soothsayers about the future of the brand, but honestly, it's just a brand. Whether it lives on or dies isn't really important.
  6. Whilst Olympus may or may not be looking to get out of camera manufacture, they are still pushing on with their OMD lens development plans: https://shop.olympus.com.au/news/post/lens-roadmap-update?j=38877&sfmc_sub=6336217&l=321_HTML&u=576786&mid=110005977&jb=16&utm_source=Marketing%20Cloud&utm_medium=Email&utm_campaign=lens-update
  7. Earlier
  8. That would be wide even for an interchangeable lens camera, and most would probably also show that curvature at the edges.

    fuji XF 27 f/2.8 on the X-E3, so no stabilisation. Maybe next time I should take a tripod.

    Were you using a stabilised lens? That might account for the wavy lines, although it wouldn't take much camera vibration to produce that, either.

    Light Trails

    I was just holding the camera steady against the top of a wall, but there doesn’t seem to have been any sign of movement in the rest of the image. I would have thought there would be a bit of a bump in the middle of the picture where tram tracks come out of the side street, but it seems to be more widespread.

    First two look like a bumpy road (or somebody came along in a car with very dodgy suspension).
  13. Ultra Wide: ƒ/2.4 aperture and 120° field of view. Thank you for the comment.
  14. I guess the last one was shot with the ultra-wide option - there seems to be a bit of distortion around the edges. What is the equivalent field of view? You've certainly done a good job of catching those clouds.

    Light Trails

    Also on my trip to the supermarket, I took a detour to the rooftop car park and tried grabbing a few shots of the light trails from the passing traffic. night 3 I think the location may be a bit too brightly lit and I was probably a bit late in the evening, as the traffic wasn't too heavy. Another variation got some nicer light stars from the street lights. night 4 I had tried this once before, when I lived in Hong Kong. Light Trails That was shot on film and was the view from my apartment's kitchen window, so I remember sitting there for some time counting the traffic light sequence to work out when I would get the most cars, for a single attempt. The more recent ones on digital from a damp car park were more of a shoot and pray. There are another couple of locations that I am thinking of trying for this sort of shot, so if the weather and time permit, I will get out to try them.

    Another Night Walk

    I've been making a habit recently of taking a walk over to the supermarket one evening a week. I have kept thinking that I should take my camera with me - last week I finally did, although I nearly didn't has it had been raining, but then the wet footpath has a nice reflection at night. night 5 An interesting reflection in the window - I haven't tried pulling up the shadows enough to see if I can be seen reflecting too. night 2 And a couple more abstract images - I can't decide which I prefer. The general composition of the diagonal one, I like, but perhaps the tree branch spoils it. Unfortunaltey, I only had one fixed lens with me, so I couldn't move forward under the tree and zoom out further. The square on one avoids the clutter of the branch, but just desert have the enigmatic look of the diagonal. night night 1

    Dawn at Joshua Tree

    I did a job in Nelspruit a few years ago directly after a safari, so I was given this VW Polo rental (ubiquitous around airports). The airport at Nelspruit is small, but still took me about 15 minutes to find the rental after I had parked it in the normal lot when I went to pick up the client. Eventually the client found it by pressing the remote against his head (to boost the signal) and we saw the indicators flashing. Nowhere near where I thought I had parked. 🙄

    Hand-held GPS units like the Garmin 60-series are for more than just finding your way in untracked wilderness - put your bag down, immediately hit the "mark" button and even if you wander a mile from where your bag is, you'll be able to walk straight back to it. Works the same for parked cars. My Garmin 62s is getting on for 10 years old and is still going strong, acting as a nice security blanket for my ageing memory functions.

    Dawn at Joshua Tree

    And airport car parks! 😀 There was a spell a few years ago when I was flying down to Hobart for day or two every week. There was one day I got back into Melbourne, took the bus to the long term car park and then just couldn’t remember where I had parked. What made it worse was I could find the spot I had parked in the week before and the week before that. After that I started writing the location on my car park ticket.

    Chris, I do this with rental cars all the time.

    Dawn at Joshua Tree

    I’ve done the same, stashing my backpack behind a rock for safety and then struggled to find that safe rock.
  22. I think I would agree with the analysis of this from Thom Hogan, in which he suggests that Olympus will not disappear as a camera brand, but that they may retreat from some less profitable markets - perhaps even to the extent of an Asia only brand.
  23. Thanks, Luc. The coffee is a minor inconvenience, that's all. I've found a cheap decaf from Germany relabelled under a local supermarket branding that is acceptable - much better than the couple of high-priced well-known brands of decaf, which was a nice surprise. It's sometimes a mistake to prejudge quality by the price, it would appear.

    It is scary how shots can be ignored like that, esp with digital photography! They're free to take and we come home with hundreds or thousands - who has time to review them all?
  25. It is a cirrus formation. Available worldwide. Lol

    2013 Says Hi

    As mentioned in Greg's Joshua Tree post, I was scanning through some of my images from the 2013 safari to Namibia and came across this shot of the Deadvlei that I hadn't processed. Shot with Olympus E-M5 and Panasonic 14-45mm.

    So funny you should post this. I just yesterday was looking through my old Namibia safari images from 2013 and I also edited one taken in the Deadvlei that I hadn't published anywhere before. I'll share it here after this reply. Nice shot, by the way.
  28. Hello Alan, I wish you all the best with the SVT issue. If switching to decaf solves the problem that seems like a nuisance but minor sacrifice for improving your health. Stay safe and healthy.

      Not remarkable photography by any means (X-T2 + 100-400/4.5-5.6 @ 400mm + 1.4x TC, around 1/125-250 sec @ 800 ISO, OIS, hand-held - kinda pushing the envelope for the little beast here), but when I spotted this group in a dead tree in the paddock behind my back gate I had to grab what I could and photograph them.

      Despite the quarantine measures on nature, you can even go out! For immunity, there is nothing ray of sunshine, fresh air and distributed physical exertion.
