    Screen Shot 2015-01-30 at 3.47.25 PM

    Recently Heather Broster wrote a blog post on the Ten Mirrorless Blogs you Should Follow in 2015.  I am proud to say that Mirrorless Minutes was selected in that top ten.  Both Heather and Mathieu Gasquete run the site MirrorLessons which covers the world of mirrorless cameras and they do very insightful work.  Our little project that we started late last year is continuing to grow month by month and Jamie MacDonald and I are very focused on making it a very viable source for news and reviews in the world of Mirrorless Cameras.  Recently we added Tammy Lee Bradley with her insightful reviews on all brands of mirrorless cameras and as always we have Terry McKay who has taken the idea and turned it into a website as well as the audio over to iTunes.  On top of that he also attends the podcasts from time time time to talk abut his mirrorless journey.  So check out all the links and learn what makes Mirrorless Minutes tick and hopefully you will become a regular subscriber to our website and video channel on YouTube.

  • Photowalk – Autorama (free)


    Do you have a passion for beautiful cars and love to capture images of them?  Do you like observing and taking images of interesting people?  Well then, let’s mix the two together and go out and capture some images at the upcoming Autorama being held inside Cobo Hall in Detroit, MI on Saturday, March 7th.  We will meet at 10:00am to discuss taking images inside the show and talk about some theme challenges I will have for you.  We can shoot till 12:30pm and then head over to Grand Trunk Pub for a bite to eat.  The cost for show tickets and lunch will be yours but the actual photowalk will be free.  I am going to limit this walk to only 6 photographers to keep the group small.

    Auto shows like Autorama have celebrated and paid tribute to innovative workmanship that can improve vehicles of yesterday and today.  This is a fun show to see what can be done with metal and four wheels.  Many times these shows have as many interesting people as they do cars so get your small camera gear and let’s get out there to capture something interesting in the town that brought the automobile to the world.

  • Small Town to Downtown Workshop


    Mirrorless Minutes is proud to announce their first photography workshop called  Small Town to Downtown taking place Saturday and Sunday July 18&19, 2015.  Join Olympus VisionaryJamie MacDonald and Mike Boening as they travel to their favorite spots in the Michigan countryside and in Detroit.  This workshop will be kept small, only 10 photographers, so early registration is encouraged.   Knowing that we have some miles to cover from the city to the country, we will be including transportation in the workshop fee.  Our travels will be together in one vehicle so we can reduce the time between locations and parking in the city.

    Mike will take us to some very interesting spots to capture the feel of Detroit and its urban art scene.  Saturday morning will start by visiting the grand architectural magnificence of Michigan Central Station.  The train station is abandoned but we can capture images of the location from the outside, which can be amazing.  We will not be entering into abandoned buildings on this trip.  After the train station our travels will lead us to some of the coolest Urban Art locations in the city.   We will go to a few of the well-known urban art areas as well as a couple that are less known but offer some amazing views.  Next will be one of the coolest areas in Detroit, Greektown.  We will visit the area with some time to take pictures as well as dine in one of their many great restaurants.  Once full and rested we will head over to the People Mover for our next location, the Millner Center parking garage where we can capture amazing images of The Renaissance Center, GM’s World HQ, and other landmarks from atop the garage.  Following our nighttime session you will be taken back to the Workshop HQ.

    Sunday morning we will meet VERY early and head out to the country portion of our trip.  Jamie is putting together some amazing places to capture rural Michigan at its best.  We will explore farmlands to old country roads and points of interest in between.  After a full morning of shooting we head back to the Workshop HQ for our post processing session.  A room has been reserved for our class to select and process their best images of the weekend.  A couple hours will be spent on post processing and selecting your best 5 best images for our class slideshow to end the day.

    This workshop is expected to give you the chance to unplug from your daily routine and focus on the hobby you love, photography.  You will meet like-minded people and find that the camaraderie built during the weekend will last long past Sunday.  Give yourself the opportunity to experience a great time with some great people capturing great images.  An Early Bird Registration Fee is available for a limited time so act now.
