About me:

I'm an avid hiker, spending every weekend out in the woods throughout the Pacific Northwest, with the occasion to get out into other parts of Earths walkable wilderness. I sometimes happen upon wildlife, but really it is the overall amazing vistas as well as those stunning surprises in the underbrush that are waiting to reward the un-rushed and observant. I also have a developing love of portraiture and street photography.

  • S-OVF is off.  Might just have to default the poor thing.  Horribly obnoxious, so many settings go go reset, especially on the video side, but alas...this makes me resent this little camera quite ...
  • Looking at reviews, it definitely has some appeal.  I use an old canon manual FD lens, nicely sharp, and it's functionally a 100mm 1.4, so beaautiful DoF control, but I'd love something automatic ...
  • Created discussion thread Sigma and other lenses with the EM5ii
    Greetings all! I was curious at the community's experience with how Sigma lenses work with their EM5ii, especially on the portrait side, or if there are any non-native lenses that you've found work ...
  • I get 0 change regardless of the degree of change in the exposure triangle.  Makes the live view basically useless outside of composition.
  • Created discussion thread Help on EM5ii live view problems
    I've found one thread on this from 3 years ago in the MFT forums...but no one actually answered the question. . I have the live view boost off, and to my understanding the live view display (EVF ...
  • Created discussion thread Any particulars for a deadcat?
    I was just curious if anyone has specific brands/models of attachable deadcats (directly for the camera body, not separate audio gear) which have worked well for you with your Oly?  I'm hitting ...
  • Simply stated: grab a capture clip.  It's what I use with my EM5ii, while keeping my neck strap on so I can immediately just attach and detach it from my shoulder strap on my backpack.  It's what ...
  • Replied in Reflections
    Looking for thoughts on both sides I suppose, but mostly were I to approach the image again, what I could do. Yeah a tripod would have helped a lot, it was with my Canon M3 with kit lens which ...
  • Excellent DoF to give him even more personality, and I like the diagonal composition.  I love snagging shots like this of snakes when I get the chance, from a nice low angle, but I'm also not ...
  • Replied in In your face
    Definitely my thoughts, it does have a bit of a sinister feel to it.  Both the perspective, and the wonderful dark blue color basis.  A fun and different perspective!
  • Replied in Reflections
    This week I continue my CC journey seeking input on some of my more favorite images, mostly from shortly after I started picking up real camera's, to see what I could do to take future images to ...
  • Agreed.  I love the mood.  Rich and dark like flowing tar, but smoooth.
  • Replied in Bystanders
    I love the image, and find the high detail monochrome really draws worthy attention to the rich character of this unique tree.  It grabs my attention and personally, while I like the complexity of ...
  • A beautiful shot, which I'm liking the more I look at it.  I love the mixture of gentle colors and organized shapes of the architecture mixed with the more neutral tones of the dancers.  Also, I ...
  • It is indeed a typo, I tend to speak and type a bit of word salad, as I give my mouth/fingers general instructions and then my brain is on the next step or two down the line. That's definitely the ...
  • Sorry for the slow reply! Crazy week and haven't had a chance to check back in until now. Thank you for the kind words :) I know a big part of photography in general is being lucky enough to ...
  • Sorry for the slow reply! Crazy week and haven't had a chance to check back in until now. I really appreciate the kind words!  Now that you say it, it does kind of give that kind of album feel, ...
  • Unfortunately, as it is, it was just a typo :p Thanks for the comments!  It was a phrase that was so unique and out of place that it grabbed me, and really left a lot of room for interpretation and ...
  • Sorry for the slow reply! Crazy week and haven't had a chance to check back in until now. I am indeed a local.  I live in the Beaverton area.  This was shot up in the hills on what...rock road?  A ...
  • Ahh, much appreciate the Info.  Assumed the basic micro hdmi would do.
