Photographer Andrew Marr recently headed to Greens Pool in William Bay National Park, which is in western Australia. Marr came equipped with the new Fujifilm GFX 50R medium-format mirrorless camera, which he was loaned by Fujifilm Australia to test out.
As is often the case with landscape photography, Marr had a very early start to his day. One of the most challenging aspects of landscape photography may very well be the early starts. Once Marr was out in the field, it was all worth it as he was treated to a beautiful location and some lovely morning light.
Working with the GFX 50R comes with distinct pros and cons. The camera has outstanding resolving capabilities when paired with the excellent Fujinon GF lenses. The large 51.4-megapixel sensor is great, but the camera definitely requires a good tripod in order to get the most out of the medium-format sensor. Unfortunately, Marr ended up forgetting his tripod in the car the first time he hiked to the location, which meant he had to race back up the stairs. To see how the rest of his photo adventured played out and learn more about how he enjoyed working with the Fujifilm GFX 50R, watch his video below.
