I don't have an em5 but I am sure you can try this.

When taking a shot the rear screen shows a preview, you can set this so that it blinks on areas of blown highlights and completely black shadows.

When I take a pic I glance at the preview, if there are blown highlights indicated by the blinkies I use the exposure correction button to turn down the exposure and retake it checking to see that they have gone away on the next preview.

Any area which isn't shown as blown by the blinkies can be tweeked later in software if needed.

I like the simplicity of the shot you posted and the high key effect
