Long exposure with Hasselblad H4D-40 and HC 300mm f/4.5

It was cold on the roof when I took this but worth the chilly air to get a few test shots with the HC 300mm lens.

Part of the Ambassador Programme which I am involved in this year for Hasselblad in Japan means being able to borrow and shoot with whatever gear I would like to.

The 300mm telephoto has been on my list of things to try for a while. I have shot a few times with it since having the H4D-40 but this was the first time I tried it out with any sort of long exposures at night.

Haven't figured whether you can stop it down too far yet. Some lenses get soft if you stop them down too far. Doesn't seem to be the case with this.

Keeping it still on the tripod in the high wind was a little bit of a lottery. In the end I just waited for a gap in the gusts of wind.

This is looking down Route 15 from our flat, towards Omori-Kaigan Station.
