Default Night Light Streaks

Anne and I climbed up the high highway overpass at the main intersection outside Metrocentro Mall in San Miguel, El Salvador at dusk tonight to grab a shot or two from this angle. It was cool showing our active volcano Chaparrastique in the background.

I set up my Olympus E-M1 w/ 11-22 f2.8 lens on my small travel tripod and turned the top dial to M - which is set as a Function with everything ready to go for Live Composite. My biggest challenge was waiting for the strong vibrations to stop from people climbing the stairs and walking across the metal structure. As well it is hard getting good light streaks around here, because even at this time of night, all kinds of people didn’t have their lights on —- and more people than not don’t have functioning red taillights. @rswpix

Sounds like an adventure, and challenges.... but worked out well. Live Composite can be fun and a challenge, so you liked it and will try more of it?

Neat night time pic. Sounds like a bit of work, but worth it.

I am addicted to this unique feature in Olympus cameras. That doesn’t mean I use it all the time, but it is great to play with from time to time. I will definitely do more.

Only a bit of work because of the location I was shooting in. Plus it’s not exactly advisable to be out on some of these streets in El Salvador in the night time, with camera equipment to boot LOL. But to me this Live Composite feature that is unique to only Olympus cameras - is fantastic. So different and more versatile than the normal time exposure and bulb modes.
