I love working with long exposures.  It does not matter where I travel, I am always prepared for them. My normal system for this type of work is the Fuji GFX 50R and the Breakthrough X4 magnetic and 100mm ND systems. I have long used B+W and the Lee Seven5 system but have to tell you that the Breakthrough X4 system FAR exceeds the quality of the others!

This is the Roanoke Marshes Lighthouse across the sound from Nags Head, NC.

Taken on Saturday morning after sunrise with a 20 second exposure on a Fuji GFX 50r with a 6 stop Breakthrough magnetic nd plus a 2 stop soft grad on the sky.

Data: GFX 50R - _RGB1883 - Fujifilm Fujinon GF32-64mm F4 R LM WR - 47.3mm - ISO100 - S20s - f20 - Manio Light - 2019

Today spent the morning prior to returning home at the Nags Head Pier for some really long work. The waves where HUGE!

Here is one that I did there demonstrating exposures near the 10 min mark! The fog really made it a great location for everyone!

This was with the Breakthrough X4 14 stop magnetic nd filter on a Fuji GFX 50R medium format digital.
