Long exposure photography with medium format is a subject that hasn’t been covered extensively so far. My goal in this article is to fill this gap and provide more information about how you can create the best long exposure images when shooting with a medium format camera. The camera I am using to analyze long exposure photography with medium format in this review is the new Fujifilm GFX 50S.
I am working with this camera for a few months already and recently I have made a complete Fujifilm GFX 50S review that you can find on my website. It is the most extensive Fujifilm GFX 50S review available at this moment and if you are interested in this camera I would recommend you to start by reading the main review and then continue here.
Before starting with this review let me tell you that for even more information and tricks & tips about long exposure photography, you can read my Long Exposure Photography Extensive Tutorial that I have published some time after this review, where you can find all the details about this technique in a complete guide.

How do you travel from art to photography? Should art look like “art”, or should it look like the artist? Should photographs follow a recognizable pattern in order to be accepted or should they express the vision of the artist? Is an object art, even if it is not understood? Is the artist an artist, even if he is not understood? Even if he does not fall into a mainstream “artist” pattern? How does the artist and photographer find inspiration and how does he transform it into an object that has the power to move?
I will not try to answer these questions. Not directly, at least. But I will tell you a story that comprises all these questions and hopefully some answers. A story about how art can influence photography, how you can travel from art to photography, and how art and memories can be the substance of photography.

There is not much free information you can find about intentional camera movement online, Continue reading →
Art is a great tool to question the world, to challenge it, to change its traditional structure, to change its preconceptions. Art is a great tool to challenge yourself, to explore yourself and to push yourself to evolve. Art is a great tool to change the status quo of the world. But in order to challenge the status quo of the world through art, you need to start by challenging the status quo in art itself.
