08 Jan Long Exposure Photography with the Fuji GFX50s

Source: Fuji X Passion

Let me start by saying that I do not intend for this post to be a giant primer on long exposure image making. Nor is it a justification for the techniques over a more traditional approach to capturing a scene. A great deal of my current landscape or architectural work is not specifically long exposure. But in the right conditions – environmental and type of light – I appreciate how it can bring a kind of hyper clarity to the subject that is uniquely contrasted against the soft rendering of sky and water.

When I am photographing waterfalls I am certainly using long exposure techniques. But most of these images are shot in the 1/2 of a second to 8 or 16 seconds, and generally not over 30 seconds. For the images in this post I am referring to captures that exceed 60 seconds and range up to, and over 240 seconds.

For all of this work I use a Fuji GFX50s setup with three lenses – the Fujinon GF23mm f4, the Fujinon GF32-64mm f4, and the Fujinon GF110mm f2. It is a simple kit that provides a 35mm equivalency of 18mm to 87mm. More often than not I primarily employ the 23mm or the 32-64mm. The focal length range from super-wide to normal is excellent for the work I do. The GFX is a perfect machine for this kind of work sporting a maximum resolution of 51.4 megapixels with a 43.8mm x 32.9mm medium format sensor….
