This image was captured on a trip to Mumbai which was funded by Fujifilm, to give Zack time to produce images on there new camera at the time – the X-Pro1. A fujifilm X-Pro1 is a mirrorless rangefinder style camera with an APS-C crop sized sensor. The camera is much smaller, than a traditional DSLR, and is more discreet ideal for shooting on the street. This allows him to travel lighter and potentially shoot for long, with the equipment not weighing him down. This image would require a slower shutter speed, to cause the motion blur to appear. Looking at the Fujifilm website the exposure for the image was there and the image what shot at an aperture of F8, a shutter speed 1/5sec and his ISO was set at 3200. From a first glance you can see the composition of this picture is very complicated, there are many different types of people in the frame. Unlike the Moriyama’s, we can see more detail on the people in the picture, though it is meant to be blurred as a response to the business of the streets within Mumbai.

From my research into Zack Arias, I want to use this long exposure technique. This would allow me to freeze subjects within the frame, while the rest of the world would look frozen. If I’m to shoot this is on a full frame sensor my exposures will be less, time especially if I shoot in the day.
