First Fuji Sunrise

Recommended Posts

This was the first morning I've tried to shoot sunrise with a Fuji (X-E2). Sunrise is at about 4:50 where we are right now, so I had to get up early. I had to wait about half an hour once I'd got into position.

This is also the first time using ND Grad (Cokin P size) on the Fuji...

This was the setup (taken on my phone)...

I'm loving that I can use my old cable release again.

Sorry but I am confused. Is there such a time as 4.50am? I didn't think the clock started that early.

 

nice pics. :-)

LOL, I wondered that too.

I got up at 4:15 and the sun didn't appear where I wanted it until about 5:15 - so it was a long wait.

Thanks for commenting...

If you have an iPhone there is an app called Sunseeker. You stand looking silly with your phone in hand and it shows you where the sun will be at any time during the day at that location. I'm sure there are other apps that do the same thing and Android versions as well.

Ther is also a Moon version BTW.

Did you plan to have the sun rising between the buildings or is that just how it worked out? Like the effect it has created.

Thanks guys, and yes I was planning on having the sun just appearing between the buildings - I had to wait quite a long time for it, but I think it was worth it.
