Manhattan from Brooklyn

A few weeks ago I traveled to New York with my friend and fellow Olympus Trailblazer Alex McClure. Our plan was to photograph the city from Brooklyn. We had done this back in November from the area around the bridges, however, we ran out of time to get shots from the this location (in front of the piers). This time, when we arrived at this location, we were greeted with a beautiful evening and a wonderful sky. I had two camera bodies with me and I used both of them for the following images (The Olympus OM-D E-M5 MarkII and the PEN-F). After we photographed the city skyline we walked up to and over the Brooklyn Bridge. The remainder of the images were from the bridge. The one with the car headlights and taillights was done in “Live Composite” mode.

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.
