Olympus released the first episode from season three of their Anywhere Classroom series that profiles photographers in their everyday environments and their jobs. For the first episode, photographer Larry Price states that establishing a rapport with your subjects is key and will give you a lot more of an edge when going into the story. He talks about doing a story on Lobster Fishermen as they do their daily jobs.

Larry outlines all the basics of a photojournalistic essay involving stuff like details, wide establishing shots, filler, and minding your angles. He really hits home on the latter because people don’t see them often.

Again though, he comes back to gaining trust and eventually being able to shoot three to four inches from a person’s face.

The video on shooting a photo essay is after the jump.

There have been stories going around and whispers of a large sensor compact camera from Olympus coming soon for a while now, but 43rumors has reason to believe that the camera is going to be much like the Ricoh GR. While this seems a bit unlikely, it’s still very interesting due to the fact that these reports have been going around for a while now and Panasonic launched one with the LX100. While that camera had a zoom lens, it only makes sense that Olympus would try to release something with a solid, fixed prime lens.

The reports state that this upcoming camera will be very much like the old Olympus Trip film camera–if it does indeed exist and comes out. This makes quite a bit of sense as Olympus has tried to create digital versions of their historically successful cameras like the Pen and the OM series.

While the Ricoh GR has an APS-C sensor, we believe that the company may instead opt for a Four Thirds sensor with retro ergonomics and maybe with one of their current lenses already attached. Their 12mm f2, 17mm f1.7, and 25mm f1.8 are all quite small and on the OMD camera make for an awesome compact package. It’s bound to be loaded with art filters and have a couple of accessories to make it look even sexier as a complete package plus include WiFi transmission to make it a better travel camera.

If it is indeed real, Fujifilm and Panasonic may have a major contender to look out for.

When Olympus first showed us their 14-150mm f4-5.6 II, we weren’t incredibly impressed. Wide zoom range, weather sealing, minimal change of an aperture: okay, it’s got a lot going for it. But we’re always skeptical until we get the unit in our hands.

Olympus chose to recreate the 14-150mm f4-5.6 II, and they did so with the incorporation of weather sealing, sharper optics, and a new body overall. Yes, it’s sharp–but if you’re spoiled by the higher end offerings from the Micro Four Thirds world like we are, there is absolutely no looking back.

But if you’re someone that needs an all in one option, then this lens will probably become your best friend.
