Long Exposure Photography at Blue Hour by Joey J πŸ“Έ


Photo-walking with Olympus PEN with M.Zuiko 45mm (f/1.8) (March 2023)

My main interest in photography has always been cityscapes at blue hour, and I rarely shoot anything else. I sometimes see local photography interest groups doing photo-walks, and I feel like joining, but I’ll very likely end a photo-walk without shooting anything at all. πŸ˜…

Anyway, these are cats portraits shot with my photo-walking camera, Olympus PEN E-PL10 plus M.Zuiko 45mm (f/1.8) lens.

Beautiful shots Joey, really shows how good the Olympus can be! I’m sure seeing/feeding the cats makes it feel like you own one πŸ™‚

    Thanks! Actually, this cat is quite friendly. πŸ˜… It’s just showing a different face.
