Weekly Photo Challenge: Elemental

Fire Seat

Elemental” is the current theme of the weekly photo challenge (WPC) from Word Press’ “The Daily Post”. So I share four long exposure photographs representing the elements “fire”, “water”, “earth” and “air”. Anyone remembering the movie “Angels & Demons” ? First comes fire, where I experimented with long exposures to create the streaks. Image was taken with the Olympus PEN-F, specs are 1,6 sec @ f/2.8 ISO 80 (which is ISO Low on the Oly) and 30mm focal length. The rest of the elements you find after the jump….

Another long exposure for “water”, image specs 2,5 sec @ f/2.8 , ISO 80 (ISO Low) and 12mm focal length, also taken with the PEN-F. I did slightly gyrate the lens while pressing the shutter, to capture this artsy effect of a faucet.

Dream Trees

Earth is symbolized by these trees, where I combined long exposure (1/6 sec @f/5.6 and ISO 200) with a panning motion out of the window of a moving bus. Camera here, as in the next shot, was my OM-D E-M1 with the mZuiko 14-150mm zoom lens.

The same technique was applied to this shot, taken at 1/6 sec with an f/8 aperture and ISO 200. So “Air” is represented by this collection of wind mills gyrating in the evening winds.

I hope you enjoyed my “long exposure” creative take on this week’s challenge.

I wish everyone a great weekend! I will enjoy it driving down the Oregon coast. Stay tuned for the photos 😉
