#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…

#96 Film recipes for Fuji-X cameras

When you are used to having a simple camera with few options, you might be overwhelmed by the almost unlimited options a Fujifilm X-camers features. I have used Fujifilm cameras since 2012 and feel that I know the cameras pretty well. Still, since I started using the Leica M-cameras, I feel that the incredible amount…

#90 Time Travel

Back in 1994 I drove around Europe on my bike – a Honda CBX 750. I was 22 and it was the first time I travelled by myself. Well almost by my self – I went with a very good friend. As I look at the pictures from that journey, I find that a lot…

#87 Notre Dame

A couple of nights ago I watched a documentary about the fire in Notre Dame on Swedish Television. I imagine that many of us remember hearing about it on the news. The first thing in my mind was; It cant be. It is Notre Dame – she can’t be on fire. But she could. She…

#83 The old bridge

Not far from my home, there is this beautiful old bridge. The bridge was part of an old railway that is almost forgotten today. No trains can pass the bridge today. It is possible to walk across it, but one must be a little brave to do so. I used a Kodak T-Max 100 in…

#81 Black and white

Black and white photography is something special. A picture of a wooden door can be so much more beautiful if you make it black and white. Had I taken this picture in color, it would have been a really depressing door. In black and white, the door is alive. I have used many cameras, during…

#75 Swedish Railway Stations in BNW

I travel around Sweden in my work and I try to use the train as much as possible. As it happens I find railway stations and trains fun to shoot. There is nothing like an old station with the classic rounded roof. Unfortenatly…we don’t have that many of them in Sweden..but anyway… I used my…

#62 Meet my M4

Meet my ”new” camera – a 1968 Leica M4. But – why, you may ask. Who buys a more than 50 years old overpriced analogue camera? No LCD screen, no live view, no video , no auto focus – not even a light meter.  Well – I do. And I will try and explain why….

#60 Make Pictures

Madrid – Leica M240 and Zeiss 35/2,8 In my last two posts I wrote about a trip to Paris with the Fujifilm X-Pro2 and a Leica M6. As I compared the results from the two cameras it struck me how different I used them. The X-Pro2 was a camera for documenting what we did on…

#54 More photography – less photos

Stockholm – Leica M240 and Zeiss 35/2,8 The past few years of shooting with the Leica M system has left me thinking about how the number of pictures taken, is related to the ”fun factor”. The first half of my photography life was about analogue film cameras, the second was the digital age. I estimate…

#5 My Leica M6 “Hacks”

Well – I am not that a Leica Expert that I can give you the perfect hacks for this iconic camera…but I can give you my findings from two years of shooting… First – never wind the film if you are not certain you are going to take another shot. The reason is that you…

#4 Leica M6 TTL – My first Leica

My first Leica was a M6 TTL silver edition – an analogue camera. A classic camera. The way to my first Leica was not a straight line. I think it all began around 2010, as Fuji announced the X100. I fell for the camera and since then I have used various models of the X-system….
