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.

2018 marks the fourth year of Mirrorless Planet.  We unfortunately weren’t able to add much in 2016 or 2017 due to several dramatic changes in our lives, but we intend to make up for it now.  This year, we will focus on travel in Europe, and on the evolving capabilities of Olympus’ flagship camera, the OM-D E-M1 Mk II.  Aside from learning how to squeeze every ounce out of that amazing body, my own personal developmental goals includes improving my flash photography skills, mastering exposure, 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 2018, and thank you for reading!

The Alien Invasion

  Every Spring along the mid-Atlantic coasts of Maryland, Delaware and New Jersey, Horseshoe Crabs come to the shore by the thousands to breed. It's a slow, alien invasion of the earth, carried in by the tides. At first there are but a few dark bumps in the water,...
