Top Pic of the Week: Phil Kaplan

Congratulations to our Top Pic of the Week, Phil Kaplan. Phil is KEH’s Product and Merchandising Manager. He is the go-to guy if you’re ready to fill up on a ton of photography and gear knowledge.

40 plus years, that’s how long I’ve thoroughly enjoyed taking pictures.  The problem is life gets in the way and you don’t do the things you enjoy.

Since moving to Lake Lanier this summer I’ve decide to reignite my passion and make time for photography in my life. The first set of pictures is from early Saturday morning as the sunrises over the lake.

My objective was to catch the morning sun light changing the sky as the sun slowly creeps up over the horizon.

As the sunrise occurred the light was starting to paint shades of red and orange colors across the steam rising from the lake.

  •  Olympus 60mm f2.8 MFT lens 
  • Details: E-M1 Mark II body, lens f/7.1, 1/640 sec exposure, ISO 400

I love macro photography and using the Olympus 60mm was a joy.  The lens focuses fast and it’s easy to use.  This image gave me the sharpness and lack of depth of field I was looking for.

The light was right and the bokeh behind the image gave the perfect background
