# 108 Back to Ireland

In 2005 I made my first – and so far only – trip to Ireland. It was a short trip, filled with new impressions and – of course – photography. My camera of choice back then was a Fujifilm S2 Pro – a 6MP digital SLR, based on a Nikon body. Little did I know…

#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…

#100 As good as it gets

There was this magical evening on our trip to France in 2015. After a perfect day on the beach, we had returned to our camper. The children were tired as the sun was setting, and we started to prepare for the night. We had stopped in a place called Veules-les-Roses – a small village with…

#99 Honfleur

Continuing on the theme of the last post; Fujifilm X-Pro 1 and France. One of the places I wanted to visit on the 2015-trip was Honfleur. I had heard a lot about the city and how beautiful it is. A must see place for a photographer. An artists town. And I am sure it is…or…

#98 The Fujifilm X-Pro 1

The Fujifilm X-Pro 1 – my second Fuji-X camera. I bought it with the XF18/2 and XF35/1,4 back in 2013. It was – and is – a fantastic camera. All the pictures in this post were shot with it. I still think that the picture quality is great – seven years later. Up until I…

#97 Favourite cities

Just as some cities can surprise – some just are your favourites. Places you come back to over and over again. Karlskrona, in the very most south eastern part of sweden, is one of my favourites. I come here every now and then, both in my work and private. I always try and take a…

#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…

#95 Surprised by a city

Sometimes you get ”visually surprised” by a place. You may have built up your own picture of the place in your mind, and then you stick with it – until you visit the place. If you visit it. Maybe you never visit the place, just beacuse of the picture you created in your mind (if…

#93 Like walking in a painting

Golf is for me almost like photography. Been doing it since the 1980:s and is an average golfer/photographer. It doesn´t help to buy new clubs – I will not play any better. The same goes for a new camera… A golf course is often a beautiful place. Some more than others. Yesterday we played one…

#91 A Bike and A Camera

I love taking pictures – and I love riding bikes. Why not do both? As I woke up this morning, the sun was shining and the temperatur was around 20 degrees Celsius. Perfect bike weather. I took my new Fujifilm X100V in a strap, so I could have it easily accesable as I stopped. And…

#89 X100 – again

A while ago, the fifth generation of the Fujifilm X100 was released – the X100V. The new version introduced – among other things – a new sensor, a tilt screen, a new lens and 4K video. Beeing an old X100 fan, I at first considered buing it, but changed my mind. I could not see…
