OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I’ve always enjoyed playing with extended exposure, but its inherent experimental nature meant it was a hideously expensive experiment when I was only shooting with film.  Thankfully, it’s much cheaper to mess around with it on digital cameras!  In fact, the Olympus E-P5 has a really handy feature called ‘Live Time’, which will periodically update your photo on-screen while the lens is open.  Essentially, you get to watch as your extended exposure magically builds in front of you.  This really is as amazing as it sounds as it gives you a crazy level of control, especially over the exposure level.  It helps immensely to reduce the number of photos that turn out to be entirely black or white because you got the exposure time very, very wrong.
