Every once in a while, someone asks me if I still love photography. After all I have been practicing photography for more than four decades. While I have had moments in my life when I tried to put my camera down, the answer is absolutely. Yes, I still love photography. The question made me ponder why. Why DO I love photography? I was forced to embrace my softer side to answer that question. And the answer may surprise some who think they know me.

You probably realize that a small aperture will provide you with the most depth-of-field, but stopping ALL the way down to your smallest aperture (usually the largest number, i.e., f/16, f/22, etc.) is not typically a good idea. Many lenses perform best at one or two stops shy of their smallest aperture. As you stop down from there, performance suffers. This is because of diffraction.
Today, Olympus announced a successor to the Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark II camera body. The new camera is called the Olympus E-M5 MK III Micro Four Thirds, digital camera. I had access to embargoed information about the camera that I am now at liberty to disclose. While this is only a first impressions post, I will tell you that I am VERY impressed with those impressions.

So here’s a quick list – 10 Sunset Photography Tips. (And stay tuned at the end of the story for a special HOW I GOT THE SHOT section on eagles and sunset photography.)
