AREKU analogue photo Superia 200 -expired 2016- Nikon F80 NS22

Expired film on a Saturday (Superia 200/2016)

On a Saturday a couple of months ago in a city, I found myself facing a closed door – it turned out that the local photo dealer had changed their hours, and closed an hour early. Seeing as we live in 2017, you can’t just go into any super market and buy film, and thus […]

Charisma (Music Finds #72)

“Music Finds” is a series with new posts here on the blog each Wednesday. The concept is as follows: As I listen to a lot of music, I from time to time finds a piece that sticks out, sometimes because it’s quirky, mixed two very unlikely genres, unlikely instruments, or just damn right having an […]

AREKU analogue photo Xtrafilm 400

Expired film (Xtrafilm 400)

From time to time I encounter and use old, expired, rolls of photographic film. Which can be both fun and surprising, as an expired roll can behave in many different ways. Most common traits are that one of the colour layers is more dominant as the other have faded (for example could the pictures get […]

AREKU analogue photo NS2 Kodak Portra 160

Summer Portal (Kodak Portra 160)

Kodak Portra is mostly known as The portrait-film, but it fairs well with landscapes as well, so when I had a roll with a couple of exposures left from a portrait-shoot, these were the photos that I took. For these I used the Nikon F80 with the Nikkor 50mm 1:1.8  A portal to the fields […]

AREKU photography with ND8 filer slow shutter speed tree

Timeless trees – Doing long exposures with ND-filter

One of my latest hobbies includes adding an ND-filter to one of my previous hobbies: taking long exposures. With the investment into ND-filters, I can do this with more creative results even during the day, something I’ve mentioned previously in my “Dreams”-post where I try out and explains the use of these kind of darkening […]
