Photography: Abe Pacana


Abe Pacana, Multi Row Stitched Panorama of New York“I am Abe Pacana, a nature & landscape photographer, engineer, mediocre guitarist based near Philadelphia. I do not believe that you need the best camera and the most expensive stuff to capture the best photos. Some people will use the excuse ‘my camera does not have a good dynamic range’ or ‘the mega pixel is too low’ to justify the purchase of an expensive camera. Invest in a good lens instead. Learn how to use your current camera and understand proper exposure. Learn when to shoot not where to shoot.”

I like Abe’s refreshing approach and practical, down-to-earth advice to the aspiring lensman (or  woman):

  • Leave it to the pros to buy expensive six thousand dollar cameras because they have to show it off to their clients.
  • I am also a self-taught shooter and will not spend a dollar on workshops. All the famous photographers that I know were self-taught.
  • Anything that you need to learn can be found in the Internet.
  • Practice, practice and research.

Like most of us, Abe has a day job. “I work in telecommunications and I don’t really go out 250 days a year shooting nature & landscapes. I shoot whenever I can specially during weekends.”

There’s a rich set of galleries of  landscape and nature photography, especially stitched panoramic photography. All photos you see in his blogs were shot by Abe who retains all copyright. RC

  1. These are wonderful! A $6000.00 camera can’t give you an “eye”. That belongs to the individual photographer.
