Olympus OM-D E-M1, f/8 @1/400sec, ISO 200, 24mm
I’m giving two presentations this week, one at B&H Photo this coming Thursday Feb 20th titled “Insights From the Art and Craft of Landscape Photography”, which I believe is already closed for registration. The other is at the Ridgewood Camera Club in New Jersey, where I’ll be giving my popular “From Vision to Final Print” presentation.
This Thursday is also Ansel Adam’s birthday (born February 20, 1902) and so it will be nice to talk about landscape photography on a day I remember that huge influence he had on our appreciation of wilderness and conservation. There have been many others of course, who have contributed to this very worthy ideal, including Elliot Porter, Philip Hyde, and Jack Dykinga. But Ansel Adams was influential on so many fronts that it’s hard to overestimate his contributions.
Finally, this image is from a recent local hike after the 20″ inches of snow we got over the past few days here in the Hudson Valley. The Olympus E-M1 continues to impress me with its image quality, and especially dynamic range. I’ll have a follow-up post with more details soon!
