Running is for everyone

Yesterday I was in Ludvika, Sweden, to photograph the running race Gillermarksloppet.

The race is arranged by Källbottens IK and the profit goes to charity. I feel really privileged who got to photograph all the excitement and feelings that occur during a running race. This was the first time I was the photographer at a sports event and my ambition was to merge my fascination of documentary photography with my personal passion for running.

So here are my favorite pictures from the race.

 

 

 

Chicago featuring Fujifilm X-E2s

This is sort of a delayed trip report from back in March 2016 when I went to Chicago. The weather was grey but that provided me with an excellent chance just to focus on my photography with my newly acquired camera.

 

The camera – Fujifilm X-E2s

This was the first trip I took since I had bought into the Fujifilm lineup. In fact this trip was made less than a month after. For the images in this post I was using only the Fujifilm XF 18-55 f/2.8-4 – lens. Since this was the beginning of my time as a Fuji-photographer I was fascinated by the quality of images that the X-Trans sensor managed to produce.

 

 

Most of the time I walked around the streets shooting. The greyish weather led me into use the Black and White + Red filter film simulation. It actually started my entire black & white fascination, which in turn is perhaps the biggest reason for starting this blog! (So a thank you to the grey wether in Chicago) And from that side note back to my love for BW+R-filter. It gives such a great contrasty feel to the images and really makes the subject ‘pop’. For post production I have used Adobe Lightroom, no major editing mostly soma addition of clarity.
