Dream (trying out ND-filters)

This past weekend I recieved a set of ND-filters, which I was eager to try out on my cameras. An ND-filter is like a set of shades for your lens – the darker glass the longer the exposure, which can be helpful when you’re trying to achieve a longer shutter speed without overexposing the picture.

The last roll (Superia 1600)

A couple of weeks before the announcement from Fuji about their discontinuation of Superia 800 & 1600, I shot a roll of 1600. Here’s the photos from that occasion. Unless I get my hands on some leftover stock, this will be the second and last time that I’ve shot this film.  Check out some of […]

Last Saturday I attended an informal picnic hosted by my friend Melva in the Bontanical Garden of Lund. During this, we had time for a spontaneous photo shoot with my Nikon F80 & Nikkor 50mm 1:1,8 loaded with FujiFilm Superia 200. I’m still amused by the characters of the Superia, although being a consumer film intended […]

Areku musical inspiration hide

Musical Inspiration; hide

Inspired by SaSa’s posts about her musical inspirations (check em out!), I also wanted to join in and tell my story of one of my biggest inspirations, as well as how it turned out that I became a musician. Consider this as much of an origin story of AREKU, as it is a story about […]

Concert photo with film – The Cho Berry Ba’s (FujiFilm Superia 800)

A couple of weeks ago I went to the concert of The Cho-Berry Ba’s with SaSa, here’s some photos from that evening! All pictures taken with a Nikon F80 coupled w. Nikkor 50mm 1,8, loaded with FujiFilm 800 – probably my new favorite film! Takinf photographs at a live show is demanding, and doing so […]
