Kniebrücke Sunset. BY Christian Stops

I was able to capture this beautiful sunset after a long day of shooting street photography in the city. I didn’t have my tripod with me and also my cable release for my Fuji X-T20 got left at home. That meant I had to make concessions in terms of composition. To my surprise I was lucky in that the composition still works very well with the foreground elements and the silhouette of the bridge. Not having a cable release meant I couldn’t do a longer exposure than 30 seconds which is what the Fuji allows as slowest shutter speed outside bulb mode. For bulb mode you have to have the cable release as you have to keep the shutter button depressed for as long as you ant your shot to be exposed.

  1. This is a brilliant long exposure shot.
    Silky smooth transition of warm colours, spilling across the river from the setting sun,blending upwards to the cooler colours in the sky above.
    The filigree silhouettes of the bridge are wonderfully elegant, and give depth and context to this lovely tranquil picture.
    What you write about the shot is so very interesting to read…and your writing enviously stylish and easy going!
    This is simply a fantastic blog: It gives real insight into the way you work Chris.
