The Southern Cross. I can not thank Queet and Matt from Olympus Australia for their help and their enthusiasm on Friday night.Just when you thought you knew your camera they popped up with a gem that you did not even know was there. One feature I knew of but had not played with was Live Composite on my EM-1. Matt was a little disappointed that Adelaide did not put on the nice clear sky he was looking for so we were unable to attempt it in the city. So after the meet up I dropped in to the lookout near my house and I had perfectly clear skies.

After a couple of test attempts I set the camera to task, sat in the car (with the heater on, I forgot a jumper) and 100 shots later this image came out. I had to use the torch on my iPhone to light up the tree for about 20 seconds as I found after the test exposure that there was not enough ambient light at 30 sec to light the leaves. 

After the 50 minute exposure the camera processed the image remarkably fast. Disclaimer here... I did have NR and Noise filter off. At home put it into LR and did a little tweak here and there, cropped and exported. In all I am very pleased with the result. When you look at the time to do this before, 50 minutes of shooting, then the loading of images at home, opening in PS and blending 100 photos. Takes ages, with the Live Comp the whole process is done in a quick and easy. Now to find some interesting foregrounds for my new passion.

Did an official Olympus walk at sunset in Adelaide. Used the dramatic tone art filter for some shots and had a chance to use the live comp feature that I have not played with before. Great walk and learnt a lot.

I spoke to them on the night, they are keen to come back to Adelaide. Email to their RSVP email address with feedback and requests helps. Queet, was looking at some seascape work next time. I suggested down Aldinga with the jetty ruins would make for a good event.

Played with the Diorama feature of the E-M1. Problem with Adelaide is we have no really tall buildings with public access to do this feature justice. Just wish I could get a better angle without the roof top.

Yes,. follow the dirt road that is next to the wreck to the River. The pylons are to the North just on the other side of the fence. Hopefully they have not fixed the fence since thetas the area they found all that asbestos waste was located.

After the Olympus Australia meet up I took the knowledge Matt passed on and thought I would give Live Comp and Star Trails a go. Using my new 25mm f1.8 as well. Photo of the rear display with the iPhone.

Pity Adelaide does not have really tall buildings with public access to take advantage of the diorama feature of the E-M1

Nighttime on the Riverfront at Renmark the tame Brushtail Possums come out of the trees for a feed. They are so tame that my son was standing next to the tree and got the fright of his life when one sat on his shoulder. Flash was used but it was facing up with the diffuser on and at -1 stop just to get some fill. #olympusinspired   #olympusomdem1
