Long Exposures on Derwent Water with the Fuji X-T1 | Andrew Stannard

This blog post is a bit of a catch up really – with some images taken last May in the Lake District. This shoot was my first chance to try out the Fuji X-T1 for some long exposure photography, with an evening of shooting at Derwent Water in the UK Lake District. This is a location that should be on the list of places to go for any photographer – stunning scenery, and some good pubs for when the shoot is over. All the images in this post were taken with the Fuji X-T1, XF 18-55mm lens, remote shutter cord and a Lee Big Stopper, combined with some ND grads when required. For my tripod set-up I was using a Giottos MTL8350B with a Manfrotto 410 geared head. A quick word about the Manfrotto 410 head. I love this tripod head. Yes it’s heavy, but when weight isn’t an issue it gives you such precision in setting your camera. No fiddling with ball-heads that slip when you tighten them, or refuse to move then suddenly give. This geared head just works. If you’ve never tried one for landscape photography then I’d recommend trying…….
