Magic light with the Fuji X100s

places-23There is a brief moment in time that occurs during sunrise and sunset that photographers call “magic light”.  It comes quickly, then is gone.

This photograph was taken minutes after a beautiful sunset in Birch Bay, Washington.  Birch Bay is immediately south of Vancouver, BC, Canada.  To the human eye it was all but dark out, but the camera sensor can see a lot if you give it a little bit of time.

Camera Speak:  This photo was shot handheld with my Fuji x100s, f/8 at 1/15th at ISO 1000.    I adore this camera.  Small, lightweight, an amazing 23mm lens (35mm equivalent), and most importantly an APS-C sensor in a rangefinder body.  The ability to confidently handhold 1/15th of a second to capture this image is awesome, and with this sensor’s high ISO performance I feel comfortable going right up to ISO 3200.
