Share My Journeys

Welcome! My name is Loren Runyon, and my wife Catherine and I are enthusiasts of photography, nature, and travel. We decided to create Mirrorless Planet to share with you in two different kinds of journeys:

One is the journey of photography as a hobby. I am a self-taught non-professional. I explore the many genres and techniques of digital photography out of sheer interest and fun. I make mistakes and new discoveries every week, and slowly but surely hone my skills. On this blog I will share this progression. In doing so, my perspective will differ from a great many professional photobloggers in a way that I hope will be more relevant and fresh. This is even more true with my system of choice — Olympus Micro Four-Thirds — an amazing and underrepresented line of mirrorless camera gear that has proven very apt in filling my needs.

The second is our journey through the world. I chose photography as a hobby because it fits so well with our other two passions — travel and nature. We have a huge bucket list of regions, landmarks and — most of all — beautiful parks and landscapes that we will experience, and share those adventures with you through our lenses. From the places we visit and the dishes we try to the nature and animals we photograph, I’ll bring back the best we find. In doing so, I want to reveal the awesomeness of nature and the cultures that connect to it in each corner of the planet.

2017 marks the third year of Mirrorless Planet.  We unfortunately weren’t able to add much in 2016 due to several dramatic changes in our lives, but we intend to make up for it now.  We have a lot of backlogged material to catch up on, including finishing the story of our photographic trips through Maui, eastern Australia and our full tour of amazing New Zealand.  But what we really want to do is take more pictures.  For that, 2017 will focus on travel in Europe, and on the evolving capabilities of Olympus’ new flagship camera, the OM-D E-M1 Mk II.  Of course, that’s going to mean a lot more wildlife.  Aside from learning how to squeeze every ounce out of that amazing new camera, my own personal developmental goals includes improving my flash photography skills, refining my post processing skills, delving for the first time into videography, and finding more artistic inspiration when I experience different genres of photographyOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA.  So, we hope you enjoy Mirrorless Planet in 2017, and thank you for reading!

Reaction to the E-M1 Mk II Announcement 

As mentioned on the banner on the home page, I wasn't supposed to be posting for a while. I am limited to just an iPad right now, so there is very little I can do for the blog, but I was so excited about Olympus' announcement of the E-M1 Mk II at Photokina earlier...
