Behind the Lens: "Odysea"

by Jeff Mitchum

Camera: Hasselblad H4D 

Lens: 24-80 MM

Aperture: F32 

Filter: 14 stops of grad filter with 6 stops of hard

Exposure: 32 seconds

Film: Fuji Velvia Crystal

Location: Davenport, California

Additional Notes: To take an exposure as long as possible, I placed 14 stops of grad filters in front of the lens with six stops of hard grad to keep the detail in the sky. A 26-second exposure brought a nice palette of softer red, but the 32-second exposure I settled on gave the file the extra color shift and allowed the sun to send a beam from heaven to touch the ocean.
