Sunset on the river Severn at Clevedon

Nov 25, 2017 | GFX, Location, Travel | 2 comments

The sun went down over the river Severn estuary on this late September evening. The top left shot was taken on my Fujifilm GFX using a Pentax 67 45mm f/4 lens on a Kipon shift adapter. The top right and bottom shots were taken using the Fujifilm GF 32-64mm lens. I set up my Novo tripod at a point on the coast with a good view of Clevedon Pier.


This shot was taken with the GF 32-64mm lens at f/11 using a 5 second exposure and 100 ISO. I used a Hoya Pro ND 64 filter to allow the longer exposure. This is the photograph I chose for Loxley Colour to print to 54″ x 40″ on their Alumini product. It will look fabulous in my studio reception area.

Feel free to comment or ask questions about these shots. Join me in 2018 in one of the finest landscapes in the world. All the information is here.

    Hi Damien, I really enjoy your photos and tuition. A question that keeps nagging me is, would the photos you’ve just taken with the GFX look just as good if they were taken with an X-T2? I note the sensors are of different types.

      Hi Christian,

      Thank you. If the GFX and X-T2 took the same shot moments apart on the same tripod you would not tell the difference here on the web. Once printed the difference in detail becomes obvious. However the big difference is in the way I shoot with the GFX. I always use a tripod, my composition is more precise etc etc. With a smaller format camera I never use a tripod and I have a freedom in my composition. The shots I take with GFX are very different to the shots I take with X series. I only shoot 1/3rd of the number of frames too. MF is just different.
