This week’s blog post is a mix of photos taken on the streets of Malmö, Sweden in the last few weeks. I’ve done a fair bit of analog street photography lately, but haven’t shared much of it on my blog…until now that is. The light has been rather unkind to photographers in the last few weeks, even if it looks pretty sunny in many of these pictures. However, given the sunlight we had today and almost 10 degrees Celsius (50 F) it feels like we are on the right path towards both tolerable temperatures and good light!Read More
Once again I've got some analog images to show in this blog, and unlike last week's batch I think I nailed the focus in at least one or two of these with "my" (technically dad's) Zeiss Ikon Nettar 6 x 6 camera from 1957. I must say I am starting to like these large negatives...the amount of information in them is pretty amazing!Read More
In my ongoing exploration of analog photography I've dabbled with 120 format before, but not really to the extent that I've done 135 format, so I figured it was time to "remedy" that. I picked up a 5-pack of Tri-X 400 film at the local camera store and put a roll into my father's old Zeiss Ikon Nettar that I've temporarily appropriated for my usage.Read More
One of the trickier things to do in photography and getting right (at least it's been that way for me) is night photography. The hit to miss ratio is so much lower than in daytime photography, because you're dealing with such long exposures that things can go wrong in mid-process in countless number of ways. Yet, it's fun to do...partly because you get such unexpected results sometimes.Read More
At long last I've gotten around to processing my negatives from the Scott Kelby Worldwide Photowalk in Copenhagen, Denmark on October 7th. As I wrote in my previous blog post from the day after the event it was a VERY wet affair, so I decided very soon after we arrived at the starting point to only shoot analog photos (and a few cell phone snaps here and there) since my DSLR isn't particularly weather sealed and I didn't want to risk losing it or have to send it in for repairs. So analog it was from there on!Read More
During 2017 I have shot more and more film, all on Tri-X 35 mm film and I have enjoyed getting better and better at it. I am still not at the level where I am confident that I won't accidentally get an entirely black frame on the roll here and there, but I am getting there...slowly.
I've been asked why I shoot film when there's digital available and my answer to that has several parts. I do it because it forces me to slow down and think before I shoot. It's VERY easy to snap away like a lunatic with your DSLR and ending up with 700 pictures to go through (done it many times!).Read More
