Sunrises and long exposures: Photographer Andrew Marr takes his Fujifilm X-T2 to the Australian coast

Australian photographer Andrew Marr is continuing his holiday in southwestern Australia. While exploring a nearby bay, he found a nice jetty sticking out into the water and wanted to capture a sunrise seascape with the jetty as a dominant part of his composition.

When photographing subjects like jetties and piers, there are only so many different ways you can compose the scene. The challenge comes in taking what small adjustments you can make and capturing a strong image. To help cut down on glare, Marr used a polarizing filter. In addition, he used a 0.6 graduated neutral density filter to help darken the sky and even out his exposure.

Once he had captured the desired sunrise shot, conditions started to change rapidly so Marr used a 6-stop neutral density filter to try some long exposure shots of moving clouds. Join Marr on his latest photography adventure in the video below.
