His education in the field of mechanical engineering helped develop Wein’s technical skills. The natural gift of understanding mechanics of machines has allowed him to play with the workings of the camera to create visually inspiring photos. Sheldon uses an Olympus XZ-1 and an Olympus E-PL5 interchangeable lens camera. He likes the E-PL5’s flexibility and light weight. His most used lens is a F2.8 19mm fixed focal length (38mm full frame equivalent). The Olympus XZ-1 is pocket sized and has good macro ability and low light performance.
With the development of digital photography, Wein’s computer skills have allowed him to become an adventurer documenting scenes and manipulating them to create some unusual photo examples.
All through the years, Wein continued to hone his photography and semi-retirement allowed him to share his work in the Vision Arts Gallery that was opened on 23 West Main Street in 2003, (later to be Ann Coleman’s gallery, lost in hurricane Irene). He displayed his photos in the former Inn at Quail Run as well as in Mildred’s restaurant (now Jezebel’s)
Wein’s present collection of photos now include other scenes besides Vermont vistas. His passion for the visual surprise will be worthwhile to view at Bartleby’s Books.
Bartleby’s Books is located at 17 West Main Street.
