I have given away lots of cameras in the past using Twitter or on Photofocus or with various sponsors. Today I am announcing the first official Picture Methods Camera Giveaway. And I am excited because it’s more than a camera giveaway. It’s a chance to win other cool prizes.
I am a lucky guy in that as an Olympus Visionary, I get to associate with some of the best photographers in the world. One of those is Pulitzer Prize winner, Jay Dickman (https://www.jaydickman.net)
Turning an Olympus 300mm f/4 lens (600mm EFL) into a 600mm f/8 lens (1200mm EFL) used to be a dream of mine. Well that dream has come true. I wrote a while back of the announcement of Olympus’ newOlympus MC-20 M.Zuiko Digital 2x Teleconverter
Hard drives are a lot like opinions – everyone has at least one. For the serious, traveling photographer, hard drives are the life blood of any expedition. Without having a safe, secure, reliable drive to use to backup your files, your once-in-a-lifetime trip to wherever may turn out to be a major disappointment if your cards fail or if you just rely on copying them to your laptop.
You want a new camera – but which camera? You want to make the best decision you can. You may turn to some of the popular and large online camera forums to get advice. All you have to do is read through those camera forums to find out how NOT to buy a camera. The things that most of these folks comment on baffle me.
With a hat tip to Chris Brogan, I want to approach an important subject for photographers. There’s pretty much nothing more important to us than getting our work seen. The problem is, billions of photos are made and posted online every week. Who has time to look at OUR pictures? How can we stand out? Why aren’t we getting more traction with our online galleries?
I realize that for most of you, the sheer thrill of photographing an eagle and capturing ANY wing position is just thrill enough. Unfortunately, I have expensive taste so I have to get paid for mine 🙂
Olympus is well-known for making some of the best glass available. That’s why at different times in my career I have relied on Olympus to help me make great photographs.
