Wildlife Photography with the Olympus System

This week, we took our annual overnight trip to Mt. Evans (made possible by our sponsors) and photographed wildlife and landscapes in the alpine tundra above 13,000′ elevation. Joining us this week on the show is Dr. Shalah Parker, who recently got back into photography and is using the OM Digital Solutions OM-5 micro four-thirds format camera, and was with us on the shoot. You can find some of Shalah’s work at her Facebook page, Side Quest Photography.

Getting Sharp Shots

This week, we revisit the age-old challenge of getting sharper shots. Sharp photos require a combination of camera settings, technique, and post-processing, and we’ll offer our suggestions for each one. If your photos aren’t sharp, it might have more to do with your camera settings than your focus system.

Putting together a new kit: OM-System

This week, we’re pleased to be joined on the show by our long-time friend and supporter, Jon Kandel. Jon recently purchased an OM-System kit as a smaller and lighter alternative to his full-frame Nikon Z system. We’ll go through his thought process, and talk about the different options for OM-System (Olympus) lenses across a range of focal lengths, and discuss the rationale for the choices he made.
