#130 About a picture

Another picture from late January. It had been snowing all day, but in the afternoon it stopped. A clear and cold night was to be expected. A car has made deep tracks in the snow and low fog is starting to form. Lecia M4, Summicron 35 and Kodak Ektar 100

#129 About a picture

A really cold day in January. Another weekend at home, as we have got used to in these Covid-days. The sheep was having their lunch and didn’t care about the temperature. They did however seem to have an issue with me taking a picture of them, as we walked by… My Leica M4 was loaded…

#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…

#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…

#119 About a picture

We went for a morning walk a beautiful morning in December last year. Not far from home we passed through this small Birch forest. I had my M4 loaded with Kodak Porta 400 and took a few shots. I like the soft, dreamy light in this picture. The whole forest is black and white in…

#118 Getting into the Leica M-system?

Taking pictures with a Leica M can be something special. It can be special in many different ways, depending on how you look at photography.  But I am sure it is not for everyone, and I am not talking about that Leica M-photographers is better than others in any way. That doesn’t depend on the…

#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…

#110 A short stop on the way home

In the middle of September I was on my way home from a job assignment in Växjö, in the heart of Småland (in the southern parts of Sweden). The weather was great and I felt like having a break. I found this old Mill Town called Klavreström where I stopped the car. Beside me on…

#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…

#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…
