My attraction to the natural world is due to the elements of ephemeral life which exist in it. Here I find scenes which change from moment to moment, depending on the weather. As I experience nature, my five senses sharpen, and I become conscious of how nature is woven by light, color and form. This is what I seek. By adding a sense of movement to my work I aim to create images where a breeze can be felt, and sound, heard. It is my desire to convey the vitality of nature to the viewer with a feeling of being “there”. I am grateful that I am able to experience nature and would like to continue photographing it into the future.
The OM-D is a camera which possesses a variety of useful functions required for capturing natural scenery. What’s more, its compact size and light weight offers incredible mobility. Since I began using this camera, my shooting style has gradually changed, and the range of my expression has expanded. It is a reliable companion.
The M.Zuiko Digital ED 8-25mm F4.0 PRO lens is extremely useful when you want to capture wide and dynamic natural landscapes. It provides focal length coverage from an ultra-wide-angle to standard range, and I especially like the fact that it has excellent backlight performance and the ability to utilize filters. This is a lens that makes you want to take on the challenge of capturing dramatic landscapes in the morning and evening light.
