Wehr Covered Bridge

In South Whitehall, Pennsylvania there is a park area known as Wehr’s Dam/Covered Bridge. The historic wooden bridge was constructed in 1841. So with my gear in hand from an earlier shoot, I thought it would be a good place to capture a few pics. The only challenge was it was the middle of the day with harsh light.

I have been experimenting with Olympus’s “Live Composite” mode which is a feature available on the OM-D series cameras. Most of the time this mode is used for night shots. Lately, I have tried doing this during the daytime hours with the hope of creating a painterly effect. However, to do this during the day, you will need some ND filters. The images I’m sharing consist of two 10 stop ND filters. Needless to say you must have a tripod to make this work and some moving component to create the desired effect. In this case it was the clouds that I wanted moving. The effect is a result of cloud movement and not a post-processing effect. The first two images were about 5 minutes in length & the third image was approximately 2 minutes. On Saturday we had some beautiful fast moving clouds which made for ideal conditions to accomplish my objective.

    Beautiful shots! Never thought of using live composite during daylight. Thanks for the tips.
