Last blog post I showed some of my digital images from the recently finished Malmö Festival, the annual event held in Malmö, Sweden (for the last 35 years). I took analog shots too during my visits to the event, but I had yet to develop them at the time. I’ve done that now and scanned them as well, so this week’s entry in this blog is all about the analog shots I took, both with my 135 camera (a Canon 650) as well as my 120 camera (a Kiev 60).Read More
One of the frustrating things with analog photography (and actually one of the redeeming qualities too when it works) is that you can't check the back of the screen to see if your exposure is spot on. I find that a good thing often because that makes me focus on the picture taking and being careful with the exposure to begin with, because I can't check it after each image.Read More
As the people who see the pictures I post on this blog ((yeah, the two of you who actually do read this blog ;-)) have noticed there's been A LOT of black and white photos from me lately, since I've done so much analog stuff in the last year. So except for my monthly wrap-up posts on my 365 project, it has become a rarity for me to post color shots like these.Read More
For the umpteenth time the city of Malmö has had its weeklong festival (a.k.a. Malmöfestivalen) and once again the streets and squares in the center of the city have been full of music, food and people...lots and lots of people!Read More
Some days it is easier than others to be in street photography mode. March 17th is definitely one of those, if you're anywhere near a place where St.Patrick's Day is celebrated in some shape or form! Since Copenhagen is one of these places I've made it a tradition for me to go there to enjoy the sights and sounds of the day.Read More
Last weekend I took a stroll in Copenhagen with almost 40 other photographers during the Scott Kelby Worldwide Photowalk and it was a lot of fun. I got to try out night photography as well as practicing my language skills all while hanging out with fellow photographers!Read More
There are many medieval markets and fairs during the summer months in Sweden, but this weekend was the first time I've attended the one in Lund, Sweden. It was a rather low-key affair compared to some of the larger hooplas I've seen, but I liked that. It gave the visitors space to actually move around and look at the wares and things on sale, as well as the various "medieval" activities you could try out, like axe throwing, archery or even shooting with a siege engine (yep...a real ballista...even if it was rather small).Read More
“Take less photos...take better photos!” That was the phrase that I started out this year with, and while it feels like I’ve done just that so far this last week has been a direct contradiction of that. At least the first part (hopefully not the last part).Read More
For the second time (I think so at least) on May 23rd 2015, there was to be a Pride parade in Lund, Sweden and I figured I could get some good photos out of that, since those events tend to be rather colorful, and everyone there is so happy take part, to make it an event. Like I mentioned in the previous blog entry the amount of photos taken lately has been rather low, so it was also an opportunity to get some new shots.
Once I had taken all the photos of the colorful participants I figured I'd do something new with my photos. So I decided to join the twenty-first century and make a little slideshow video of my shots, which you can watch below. Hope you enjoy!
Sometimes I wonder how many times you have to do something for it to become a tradition. Two? Three? More? Anyway...this weekend marked my fourth time visiting the Sakura festival in Copenhagen, Denmark to photograph the blossoming cherry trees, the performances and mostly the people visiting the festival.Read More
