Setting up your Olympus cameras for wildlife and nature photography
I’ve recently had a rash of interest from many of our NE Explorers on how I set my Olympus cameras. I was thinking about doing this blog when I got an email from a long-time acquaintance and fellow natural history photographer, Joe McDonald.
Joe and I have known each other for more than 40 years. We started out about the same time and first met at the Outdoor Writer’s Association of America conference in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. Joe comes from a teaching background which serves him well when discussing the ins and outs of photography.
Joe has recently published an e-book on the subject of setting up your Olympus cameras for nature photography. It’s titled The Olympus OM-D E-Mark III and M1X Menu The Guide for Wildlife and Nature Photographers.
I’ll be reading it myself and going over some of the settings he thinks are best. I’m confident Joe will have great information that’s already published and ready to go. Let me know what you think and visit Joe’s website for other e-books.
Another educational option is a new video by Tim Boyer highlighting the benefits of the new Olympus Firmware update. This update brings us an option for an autofocus setting just for birds. You can find out more below.
