Just south of the bay we discovered an interesting cove surrounded by rocks that were covered in green moss.

With the setting sun moving behind the cloud the light was fading fast, so I quickly set the Fuji X-T2 up on the trip with the Fujinon 10-24mm lens. On the front I had the Lee Filter mount with the 105m Lee Filter polariser to cut through any glare of the wet rocks and the surface of the water as well as the 0.9 soft graduated Lee Filter to reduce the light out in the sky so I had a more evenly exposed image. With an f-stop of f14 on ISO 200, this gave me a shutter speed of 1/4 of a second, just perfect to capture the waves as they crashed of the effervescent green rocks in the foreground the anchored the image well.

Making the most of the remaining light, I moved around to the centre of cove and captured two more image one with a 1/4 catching the waves crashing over the rocks again and then another image at 1 second, this time capturing the patterns of the foam as the water drained back out to sea.

Using the Fuji X-T2 for landscape photography is an enjoyable experience. It’s weight and size makes it easy to carry over hills and large boulders, the tilt (flip) screen makes it easier to view the image on the screen and and physical dials makes reading and adjusting the setting simple, quick and a joy. The X-T2 makes the whole experience of being out and capturing landscape images more enjoyable which is a big part of why I love landscape photography.

Waterfall Long Exposure Timing Shutter Speed

Waterfall Long Exposure Timing Shutter Speed - In this landscape photography vlog, I am back in Australia and exploring the beautiful Leeuwin coastline to try and find Quinninup Falls, north-west of Margaret River.

I started hiking north up the coast and was met with an abundance of wildlife and wildflowers, clearly spring is in full swing. I arrived at the Quinninup Falls just after sunrise not that it mattered because the sky was covered in a thick blanket of cloud so I wasn’t going to see the sunrise today. However I was spoilt with endless gorgeous views of this magnificent rugged coastline

Just as I entered the valley the rain set in. I explored the area for possible compositions while waiting for a break in the weather. Once the rain eased off, I set up my camera gear and adjusted my settings to ensure my shutter speed was between 1/4 and 1/2 a second. I have found this exposure time ideal for capturing waterfalls of this size. The achieve this I had the IOS at 100 and aperture at f16, on the 17-35 lens at a focal length of 20mm. To help get too these settings I had the 0.9 ND soft graduated filter from Lee Filters mounted on the front to darken down the sky. Along with the Lee Filter 105mm landscape circular polariser to take the glare of the wet rocks and foliage as well as the surface of the water.

Iceland Drone Footage DJI Mavic Pro - I hope you don’t mind but I've taken a break this week from the normal landscape photography vlog format and put together a montage of drone footage I captured while travelling around Iceland.

Now if you’ve been watching my videos, you’ll know that I like to experiment with the content I create as well as use different music in the background.

I must confess, I have a fairly wide ranging taste in music and I don’t expect that this week’s music will be to everyone’s liking. It was a song I heard before I left on my Iceland trip and it was stuck in my head while I was travelling around. It was always my intention to edit together a series of footage like this to music as summary of the wonderful time I had exploring this incredible landscape and unique country.

The is called Expanding by Johan Borjesson.

It was heaps of fun going through the drone footage from the Magic Pro to put this together.

Long Exposure Settings to Capture Beautiful Waterfalls

Long Exposure Settings to Capture Beautiful Waterfalls

Long Exposure Settings to Capture Beautiful Waterfalls - In this landscape photography vlog, I take a trip to one of the most famous waterfalls in Iceland, if not the world, Skogafoss in the south of the country.

To avoid the crowds and get the best light, I arrive at Skogafoss around 10:00 at night. Even at that time of the day there are still about 30 cars in the carpark and around 40 people exploring the base of the waterfall. So I took a walk up the stars to the right of the waterfall to a platform where you get spectacular views of the area from above the waterfall.

You aren’t allow to fly drones in the area, but with stunning views from the platform, I didn’t need to get the drone out. After a couple of attempts to set up only to be interrupted by rain, the weather held off long enough to set the camera up for my first shot.

I tried out the polariser and ended up keeping it on the Nikon 24-70mm lens as it was giving me a nice effect cutting out the glare on the surface of the water and making the rocks darker. I was going to use the Lee Filter 6 stop, Little Stopper but the reduced light from the clouds and the f-stop of 11 that I was using gave me a shutter speed of 2.5 secs. This was perfect as it was taking around 2.5 secs for the water to fall from the top to the bottom of the waterfall. This was going to give me the silky smooth effect on the waterfall that I wanted.

After capturing that first shot, I explored the area a little more to find a few other composition of this gorgeous area.

Iceland Lava Fields

Iceland Lava Fields - In this landscape photography vlog, I travel east in search for more images that tell the story of my time in Iceland.

Travelling in a foreign country, provides new experiences and lots of opportunities to be challenged as a landscape photographer. Moving outside your comfort zone and away and exploring way from your local area pushing you creatively and can inspire you to try and experiment with new approaches to photography as you handle different weather and light conditions as well as new types of landscape.

This has certainly been the case for me this week as I’ve travelled across Iceland to photography large mountains, huge waterfalls as well as icebergs and black beaches. Hopefully these new experiences will impact my landscape photography and creativity when I’m back in Australia.

I wanted to capture the unique landscape of the lava fields covered in moss that Iceland is famous for. To handle the dynamic light, use an ND Graduated Lee Filter to control the exposure and bring down the highlights in the sky and allow me to capture more detail in the moss rocks in the foreground.

Long Exposure Waterfalls & Churches - In this landscape photography vlog, I drive out of VIk and stumble across a lovely waterfall that I explore, capturing a long exposure using a polariser and a 6 stop ND Lee Filter. I then discover a larger cascading waterfall where I fly the drone and capture another long exposure.

I then take you through what Ive been using for a vehicle and accommodation while staying visiting Iceland. I talk about the motorhome setup and the campsites Ive been staying out.
