Olympus OM-D E-M10 - Picture Mode 1 - iEnhance
Renee brought home some nice Hydrangeas from work, so I thought they might make a colorful subject for exploring the numerous picture modes on the Olympus OM-D E-M10.

Han Solo Lego Microfighter - Panasonic GX7 + Speedlites + Snoot



Being both a Star Wars AND a Lego fan, it wasn't even like I had a choice of whether or not to buy the Han Solo Lego Microfighter when I saw it in the toy section at my local Walmart.  Besides, I can justify it by using it in a photo shoot, right? :-)

Nikon D610 Final Verdict: My Review Summary After 2 Weeks of Shooting With The Nikon D610




Sometimes your gut reaction on seeing something go tells you a lot, and I think that was the case with the Nikon D610. I was sad to see it go. Reluctant to say goodbye as I packed it up to ship it back to Nikon.  Did I shed a tear? I'll never tell. :-)

Ella Singing the FROZEN Theme Song - Fuji X-E2 + XF35mm f1.4R + Off-Camera Speedlites (x2)

Ella - Fuji X-E2 + XF 35mm f1.4R + Off-Camera Speedlites (x2)

If you have kids, young girls to be specific, you're probably used to a similar scene at your house, and you've probably heard Disney's FROZEN theme song so many times you can sing it in your sleep. :-)

Watching Ella sing it for the one millionth time, I had the thought to grab a camera and light her with some speedlites for a stage-like effect.  Since the Fuij X-E2 is still visiting us here at Art of the Image, I thought I'd let it do the honors.

My Change to the Land of M4/3's by Jamie Hansen (Shooting Weddings with M4/3's)



I'll be the first one to admit I'm a rookie. I have only been doing photography as a living for the last 4 years. When I say as a living, I mean I make 95% of my yearly income from photography.

Nikon D610 Review: Day 7 - Dominique... a Portrait Session with Speedlite Softboxes



Day 7 with the Nikon D610, and I was scheduled to do some portraits (or modelling shots) with Dominique.  Naturally, I figured it was time to pull out the Speedlite Softboxes. :-)

Ella - Natural Light Portraits with the Olympus 12-40mm f2.8 PRO on the Panasonic GX7


Just got the Olympus M.Zuiko ED 12-40mm f2.8 PRO in a couple of days ago here at Art of the Image, and it was sitting on the Panasonic GX7 when the girls came down from getting ready for school.
