Bombinate - an Olympus experience

How a camera should be like?

Bulky, tiny, light, white, black, fast, inconspicuous, expensive, cheap, silent, with a big sensor, with a small sensor, with many megapixels, with additional features, just photography specifications?

How the photographer using the camera should be?

Should I be able to see things unseen, to catch a moment’s life and death, to place my inner darkness and light into my work, to seek inspiration in everything I see and feel, to seek originality in a time when the wheel has been long invented?

Should I be able to experiment through what I am the world I live in without getting distracted by my camera?

A tailor crafts the clothes to perfectly match the person wearing them. More, there is a symbiotic relation between these two organisms and at that moment they are the same. No more, no less, but a beautiful marriage of desires and actual experience. And only then I can fully trust my companion. My camera.

The following photos have been taken in October 2017, in a two week test session of Olympus equipment kindly granted me by Olympus Romania.

The setup used consisted of OM-D E-M1 Mark II, Olympus M.Zuiko Digital 300mm f/4.0 IS Pro ED, Olympus MC-14 and Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 60mm 1:2.8.

#1

Red miracle

contemplated

in the

immortal nature.

#2

Misty roads

on which we will run

man, boat, red.

#3

Fiery snow

sifted and melted

above the grass.

#4

Continuously bombinating

unceasing running

in silence.

#5

From the middle

into the middle comes

great wonder.

#6

On a field of stars

returning from nowhere

bewilder.

#7

How convenient

everything seems hidden

in plain sight.

#8

Shapes are joining

our dance

harmonious accords start.

#9

Who is carrying me

who is by my side

when a straw is the pillar.

#10

The identity

of whom is on the right side

is ambiguous.
