As a travel photographer and a creative entrepreneur, I have visited incredibly remote areas of the world to capture unique and undocumented landscapes. To show off the brand new M.Zuiko Digital ED 100-400mm F5.0-6.3 IS, especially during such turbulent times and an incredibly unique global situation, I chose to explore my own backyard in Victoria, Australia.
The Great Ocean Road is a beautiful and well-documented coastline of Australia.
For this series, I wanted to capture the layers in landscape at golden hour. Anyone who shoots at golden hour knows that as a photographer, you have around 30 minutes to capture that golden light. With this system, I had the freedom to be creative with my shots, find new ways to capture the moment, all in a very short period of time!
As a travel photographer, I do not carry a tripod. With the M.Zuiko Digital ED 100-400mm F5.0-6.3 IS and my E-M1 Mark III body, I could climb to new vantage points and venture away from popular tourist spots. Using the in-lens IS, I could comfortably capture incredibly sharp images at 400mm, all handheld.
The compact and lightweight system as well as the rugged design meant that I could break free of the weight of carrying too much gear and still have creative freedom with my photography.
As a long-time Olympus shooter, people are always amazed at the level of equipment I have in my bag and with the addition of this lens at 100-400mm focal length (200-800mm 35mm equivalent), I can travel even lighter.
