This is the final edit of the picture of the Acropolis of Rhodes.
Image capture details.
- Exposure - 3.2 seconds
- Aperture - F8
- ISO 400
THe picture was taken on my Canon 6D with Canon 24-105mm lens secured on my Manfrotto Pixi tripod. This was pretty much all the photography gear I took on this trip, which sat nicely in the bottom of my Peak Design Everyday Backpack, which also took my non photography hand luggage.
This is the set-up for this image, taken with my iPhone 7 Plus.
As you can see this is quite a simplistic set up, and with just this kit I managed to get a tack sharp image using an exposure of 3.2 seconds.
This is a great example of knowing your photography gear - I was confident that with this minimalist setup a sharp image using such a long exposure was perfectly achieveable.
And here is the scene in a short video showing the moving water as well as a bird flying by.
