#128 The film feeling

It is always fun when a film arrives in the mailbox. The other day I got back two films – one Kodak Tri-X and one Kodak Ektar. I used to develop both film and pictures by my self back in the days of film. It was something special to see the picture develop in the…

#127 The point of a story

When we look at pictures we form our own opinions or feelings of the motive. There are some photographers that take pictures that can stand for them selves and tell a story without words. That is not the case for all of us – and certainly not in my case. Take these three pictures. Three…

#126 Inspiration by Milnor

There are a-lot of content about photography out there on the internet. I love it when I find good channels on Youtube with people that have a genuin and passionate approach to their way of doing photography. I love it even more when the channel can stay exactly that genuin and passionate over time. I…

#124 Lennart – A Swedish Photographer

Many of you may have seen the book “A child is born” – perhaps one of the most sold Photo books in the world. The book was made in the first edition back in 1965, by the Swedish photographer Lennart Nilsson (1922-2017). I remember seeing the pictures when I was younger, not thinking much about…

#121 Sometimes less is more

This is a picture from the summer of 2016 – one of the first pictures shot with my first Leica M6. We were on a summer festival in our home town Linköping. The Swedish singer Miriam Bryant were giving a concert at the big stage. People were happy – I was happy. Finally I was…

#115 Photography by intention

I would like to be a photographer that takes picture by intention and not by chance – but I am not. At least not enough. That is one thing that I think is a big difference between many amateur photographers [like my self] and professional’s. I often find my self going out to take pictures…

#107 An M4 and a roll of T-Max 100

Back in June things started to go back to normal again. Covid-19 suddenly did not feel like that much of a threat anymore. As the summer got closer – Corona went further away. We started to get reckless – and now it has finally caught up with us. I went out i Linköping, with my…

#106 Covid-Safe Saturday

Saturday and the world is heading into a “second wave” of Covid-19. We try to do things where we can keep our distances to other people. The driving range in November is a good place to be…as long as the temperatur is reasonably ok. We were all alone… After lunch we took a walk in…

# 105 What to do on a sunday?

Sunday. The Corona Virus is again shutting down parts of the society in Sweden. The area where I live is one of the parts that now has a rising amount of infected. Those who can should work from home and we must stay out of stores, librarys and other public places. What can you take…

#104 Making Collections

I have added a new section to my site; Collections. When I was a boy I collected different things like stamps and coins. I don´t think that is something kids do today. I still have my old albums in a box in the garage. Every tenth year I open the box and look at them….

#103 A morning outdoors

This morning I woke up early and set out to shoot some pictures on the countryside nearby. I made some coffee and a sandwich and packed in my bag, along with my Fujifilm X-T2 and Leica M. I had hoped for a cold morning when the mist is hanging low over the fields as the…

#101 Film vs Digital

A while ago I made a post about film simulations for Fujifilm cameras. Now I have made a small test to compare to real film. I used a Fuji X100V simulating Kodak Porta 400 and a Leica M4 with a roll of Kodak Porta 400. You can slide between the film version and the digital…
