Safe at Any (Shutter) Speed

Port Vell at night, Barcelona.

Modern technology is quite astonishing. This was a 0.6s exposure taken hand-held with the E-M1 mark II and 12mm f2 at ISO 400. All you need to do now is simply frame, lock focus, and let the result of decades of high technology research and development by some very smart people do the rest…

With apologies to Larry Niven, whose short story was probably a response to this book (but I am digressing!).


  1. The lighting was very odd. There is a huge shopping mall out of frame behind, but the light on the face was probably from a mobile phone (I took some effort in Capture One to get the skin-tone even approximately in the ball-park!).
