I like the whole process of doing long exposures. From choosing the scenery and picking the perfect spot and angle.. to the complete calmness and dedication as you expose and capture space and silence for several seconds or even minutes. In fact long exposures have always fascinated me, but I’ve always found the prices for the proper equipment too expensive and the handling of step-up or -down adaptors and ND filters tiresome.
But, in the summer of 2014 I got my hands on the Seven5 system from Lee Filters and this changed the game completely. The Lee System is all about simplicity and transforms my Fuji X100S into a long exposure bad boy within seconds. It has really put the fun back into long exposures. So, this really motivated me and now I’ve actually started shooting long exposures worth showing.
Long exposures are like visually holding your breath
For all my long exposures I’ve used this gear:
– The Fuji X100S, my beloved 35mm fixed-lens camera
– A Benro A3580F tripod for long exposures in Denmark or a Manfrotto Pixi for travelling
– The so-easy-to-use amazing Seven5 system from Lee Filters.
If you like me are fascinated by shooting long exposures of moving objects like water or skies, I’d definitely take a look at the seven5 system from Lee Filters.
