|A long exposure at the Chevron Building in Houston, Texas, USA. When you are photographing here they send out a guard and try to tell you that you can't photograph the building even tho you are standing on public property aka the sidewalk.
The name comes from the guard that came out of the Chevron Building in downtown Houston to tell us that it was against the law to photograph the building. After informing him of the real law, which he agreed was correct, he just stood there and watched us as we took photos for about 30 or 40 minutes.
I shot this using the feature Olympus added to my EM1 a little over a year ago called Live Composite. Great feature for doing long exposure and the output is a RAW file and not JPG.

Cyrilda I used a feature that Olympus has called Live Composite. Basically you set the base exposure (which for this shot I used 0.5 seconds) and then the camera just adds any new light that comes into the frame. It makes doing long exposure so much easier and you can watch the results on the LCD so you can stop it when the photograph is to your liking. The best part is the output is a RAW file, which gives lots of leeway in post compared to a JPG file. The downside is I don't know how long the actual exposure is because the exif does not provide that info, just what the base exposure was set at. I believe this shot was around 30 seconds, but that is just a guess.
