#66 Winter Light

Leica M240 and Zeiss Biogon 35/2,8 Every year around Christmas – when it doesn’t get any darker outside – Linköping is lit up by the Winter Light exibition. Winter Light is a number of installations around the city, with ”light” as a theme. I must say that I am not generally that impressed by the…

#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…

#59 Paris – from the X-Pro2

The Metro station As I looked through the more than 300 X-Pro2 pictures that I kept from the trip to Paris, I realized that there were not many that I would say were good pictures. The technical quality was of course good in most of them – the X-Pro2 is a great camera – but…

#58 Paris – from a Leica M6TTL

Champs Elysee Back in 2017 I was  in Paris with my family, for a short vacation.  I had recently bought my first Leica – the M6TTL – and two Zeiss lenses. My main digital camera back then was the Fujifilm X-Pro2. I brought both cameras on the trip to Paris. I shot 3 rolls of…

#52 Like the past in the future

Helsingborg – Leica M240 and Zeiss 35/2,8 I was born in the Swedish city of Helsingborg in the 1970:s. I moved to Linköping – 350 km north – in 1997, but I have always returned a couple of times each year. There is something special about the place that you grew up in. It somehow…

#28 I have to take pictures

I always wear a camera – well…almost always. I find my self always looking at things through the finder of a camera – even if the camera is in my bag. Everywhere I look I see pictures. I suppose that I am not alone, suffering from this photography addiction… Today I was out on a…

#27 A Leica Q Walk

I am learning to shoot with the Leica Q. Or perhaps I should say, learning the camera and how to get the pictures I want with it. I found that this is a fantastic camera to use. Today I took it for a walk in Linköping. I would compare the camera to the Fujifilm X100,…

#25 How to ruin a project

Well. Som much for making a small project for myself. A simple goal; take some pictures with the Fuji 10-24/f4 in Stockholm. Can a project be easier? And did i make it? Nooooo… A good thing would be to actually bring the lens and camera you are to use. Did I do that? Nope! I…

#22 I forgot to change the settings

Today I made the classic mistake – I forgot to change the settings in the camera. I usually change the settings to a ”standard setting” as I put the camera down – to avoid this from happening. Usually. Not always. This was the way it was supposed to be. In color! The cherry trees are…

#21 Shooting B&W with the Leica Q

I love shooting black and white with my M240. It gives me a sense of shooting with an old film camera – the way I think a black and white photo should look like. I had hoped the Q should give me the same result, but up until now I did not really like the…

#20 Q in the sun

Yesterday me and my Leica Q was out walking in the morning sun. I wanted to try to get the star shaped sun in the frame, using a small aperture. When I look at the picture, I can almost feel the same intensity in the sunlight that I felt as I was shooting. This strange…

#19 Cold stop in Uppsala

Made a two day stop in Uppsala this week. Luckily I checked out the weather forecast before I went – somthing some of my friends did not. The winter was back for a few days and the snow was falling again. Hopefully this was the last snow I will see this spring. It looked like…
