For more than two years I have been dreaming of taking photos on the Oregon State University (OSU) campus with only prime lenses — see my article Mystical Union With Ansel Adams Via Prime Lenses? for more details.

Because of the unusually mild and dry Oregon winter we are having, I decided to take advantage of the sunny February weather by spending an entire morning on a photo outing at OSU in Corvallis — only about 8 miles from where I live, as the crow flies.

As you can see from the photo to the right, the low-hanging, early-morning sun created dramatic lighting on OSU’s numerous historic, century-old buildings. But after capturing such beauty for about three and a half hours, I started to feel quite tired and drained. Although my camera was still focusing properly, my mind was having distinct difficulty focusing on the art of photography!

Of the 120 pictures I took before I ran out of steam, 62 of them have made it into this album. For the first time, the caption of each photo states which of my six prime lenses I had used for that shot. Lens info for many pictures in other albums has been added as well.
For further details about the story behind the photos in this al­bum, see the related article, Ore­gon State Uni­ver­si­ty Prime.
The photos in this album were taken with the Olympus OM-D E-M5 camera.
