Trexler Park – Long Exposures

This past weekend I had it in my head that I wanted to accomplish some long exposures in an area by a beautiful foot bridge in Trexler Park, Allentown, PA. Having been there the week before, I had a pre-conceived plan of how I wanted to approach the composition. The only thing I needed was the cooperation of Mother Nature. She was a bit finicky at the start. But in the end, she came through for me. Note: All of the following images utilized a 10 stop neutral density filter and were taken with the Olympus OM-D E-M1 MkII paired with the M.Zuiko ED 7-14mm f2.8 PRO.

ISO 64, 10mm, f/16, 60.0 secs.

This next image was taken using Olympus’ “Live Composite” mode. By using this approach, I am able to create a more painterly effect in the sky. This is accomplished by setting the camera to expose every 2 seconds. The total time on this image was 3 minutes.

ISO 200, 9mm, f/5.6, 180 secs

This final image is a shot of an old hunting cabin adjacent to the the foot bridge.

ISO 200, 10mm, f/10, 60.0 secs.

    Treadler Park. Loved this image.

    I see you used a filter system that utilized a 10 stop neutral density filter with the M.Zuiko ED 7-14mm f2.8 PRO.
    Would you please share the name of the filter system that you used with M.Zuiko ED 7- 14 mm f/2.8 PRO lens.
    Was the filter adapter made by Phil Norton for the M.Zuiko ED 7-14 mm f/2.8 PRO lens with Nisi ND filter?
    Thank you,

      Jim, Thanks. To answer your question, I used to types of adapter. One from Phil Norton & one from Lee. I’m still evaluating them both. Regarding the filters, I’m using Nisi & Lee. Hope that helps.

        I am sure there are many landscape photographers who would be very interested in your final evaluation of these two systems for the Olympus M.Zuiko ED 7 -14 mm f/2/8 Pro lens. Would your please share your findings.
        I would like to purchase a ND filter system for my Olympus M.Ziko ED 7 – 14 f/2/8 PRO lens and want to choose the best system for my new wide angle lens.
        Thank you,
