Photographing manually

After a couple of years with fully manual photographing, there is a couple of things to reflect upon. Before I start, this is what I mean with “fully manual”: No auto focus No light meter No aperture-/shutter-priority How it started   A couple of years ago, just after I began with the digital format, I […]

Spring weather

About last week or so, we here in southern Sweden (Scania) had a wonderful hint of spring, before the rain and cold came back. Today, it once again felt like spring was on its way, and hopefully so it the case this time! I won’t cheer just yet, since I know from over the years […]

Street photo

Street photo is one field of photography that I’m quite new to. It was first around 2010-2011 that I truly discovered the fun in bringing my camera with me on a stroll through the city.

Photographing at night

As a photographer you will sooner or later find out what type of motives, or “genre” of photography, that you find the most enjoyable to shoot.  There’s rarely any shortcuts in life, and photography is no exception. I’ve changed “niche” a couple of times, leaving me with a wide knowledge, but with a somewhat dark […]
