According to a post on Olympus Russia’s Facebook page, there’s new software on the way tomorrow for the E-M1. Part of the package will help you with long exposures as it improves image quality in Live Bulb. You’ll also get improved image stabilization and better autofocus in low-light conditions. The E-M1 will also play nicer in with the Lumix G Vario 14-140mm f3.5-5.6 ASPH lens which means the chromatic aberration problem’s been fixed.

Aaron Nace is one of the head honchos over at Phlearn: arguably one of the best photography learning website ever. Since seeing his video on how to do Terry Richardson’s lighting, I was hooked on the creative content they produce. It was by chance that I found his image, “Night Flight” on 500px. Knowing what the man is capable of, I was eager to know how he shot it.

I had the pleasure of meeting Heidger Marx on a photowalk with my former B&H Photo employees at night, and after seeing his work, I was amazed that a man so humble and soft-spoken has captured and created long exposure photos at some of the awesomest locations I’ve seen for something like this.Heidger is based in NYC and his passion is long exposures and night photography, but has also shot portraits. He currently leads workshops as well for people interested in learning more about the art. While going through his portfolio, we asked him about the photo above.
All images shot by and used with permission from Martin Stavars
Martin Stavars is a born in 1981 in Czestochowa, Poland and has always been fascinated with landscapes. Martin specializes in black-and-white cityscapes, landscapes, and night photography and he has travelled around the world photographing cities. The photographs have won him many awards and they are now published in his book, “Megalapolis.”
Beautiful can’t begin to describe Martin’s work as the images hold elements of both simplicity and complexity due to the compositions. When you look at them, the words ghostly, beautiful, hypnotic, and dreamy come to mind. Take a look at the rest of his work after the jump. Also be sure to check out Neutral Density magazine, where Martin is the Managing Editor.
Paul Schneggenburger has recently released a series of very beautiful photos that he shot of sleeping couples. Paul kept his lens wide open for six hours with no illumination besides candlelight while fully documenting the way that the couples turned and tussled throughout the night. The project is called, “The Sleep of the Beloved.” The images are currently part of the Anzenberger gallery and are totally worth a look.
