Light Painting with an Olympus PEN E-PL1
This was another "light painting" session, this time with the Olympus E-PL1.
This is really very easy to do. I set up in a darkened room with the camera on a tripod, set manually at f/8 and 10 seconds, with the drive mode in 2 second timer. Focus was achieved with the flashlight full on and then switched to manual focus. After shutter release and the 2 second timer expired, I illuminated the subject with the flashlight, moving it around and also pointing from different directions to reduce harsh shadows.
I'm thoroughly enjoying the Olympus PEN E-PL1. With care, the image quality is very good, and sharpness is excellent even with the 14-42mm kit lens.
This image was taken in RAW, then processed and tweaked in Lightroom 4 and Nik Viveza
