#161 Changing my scanning technique

Up until now I have always used different flatbed scanners for scanning my analogue film negatives. The results has been good most of the times – but I have suspected that it could have been better. Aspecially dense color negatives have been hard to get as good as I would like. The last couple of…

#159 A New Hope

As you may have heard before on this blog, I love black and white photography. When I go out to shoot black and white pictures I find my self in a special “black-and-white-mode” – I see the world in a gray scale instead of in color. The black and white world is different from the…

#156 Back in the north

I have spent the last few days in the northern parts of Sweden. The first time for me since before the pandemic started. My camera was of course with me on the trip. The picture above is from Luleå. The last sun of the day. Perfect for making shillouetts. This time of year the sun…

#153 I am keeping my M4

I have a kind of love and hate relationship with analogue photography. I constantly find myself going between thinking of selling my Leica M4 and feeling a sense of relieve as I use it. I have sold two Leica M6:s after decisions that were made to fast. The one I regret selling the most was…

#150 Aboute a Picture

Playing golf in the sunset is one of my favorite things to do. The light can be so beautiful that I just have to take some pictures. Here is my son in the sun, aiming for the flag in the shadows. The camera exaggerate the differences between light and shadow. Often this can be a…

#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…

#125 About a picture

The Central Station in Mjölby a late afternoon in January 2020. Commuters on their way home from work in the tunnel. People waiting for tha train by the track above. I kind of like that there are things happening in several places in the picture. The woman in the upper right corner almost seems to…

#120 About a picture

It was in the middle of the summer of 2020. A cloudy, but still warm day. My son is taking a nap in the garden. It was when we almost had started to forget Covid. Boy were we wrong…

#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…

#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…

#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…
