PROJECT | 15 Play with time


Fiddling with shutter speeds can help you express movement by blurring travelling objects and freezing those standing still. This is particularly fun when taking shots in spaces where a lot of people pass through, such as stations or busy streets – but can also be used away from the city when trying to blur water movement, whether a waterfall or river. PEN shooters can try using Live Guide and adjusting the ‘Express Motion’ setting to extend the amount of time the shutter’s open.


Reader PROJECT


Check out this creative set of pictures taken with an OM-D, submitted by Olympus Magazine reader and photographer Mike Katona – Mike’s normally a landscape shooter but has been enjoying this “fun and different project”. If the weather’s keeping you indoors, why not try something similar yourself? http://mjkatona.photoshop.com

Olympus cameras contain a secret – you can adjust the style of frame you’re shooting with, giving you more in-camera options. Using one of these, particularly the square one, can be a fun way to completely change your shooting style and the way you spot pictures. There’s more chance to make symmetrical scenes or capture patterns.
