We meet again

Hello, we meet again. Sometimes it is hard to keep up with something although it might be something you really enjoy. This webpage is such an example for me. I have been photographing a lot since last and wanted to share how my street images have developed during the year. I hope you enjoy and yes, we will meet again.

Happy New Year!

It has been one year since I started this website and regularly started posting my images on Instagram. I have developed a lot as a photographer as well as a person during this time so this past Christmas I decided it was time for something new. I wanted a new username that better described me and my work. That username; @mysocialsolitude. With this I’m also trying to get a more consistent look to my images for everyone to recognize it as my original work.

The pictures in this post are almost all captured in december of 2017. I am really happy with my inspiration from that month and therefore have a lot of images to share.

 

 

 

 

London Calling

This is yet another travel report from this summer. London was the destination. In contrary to popular belief, that it’s always raining in London, I encountered lovely weather the entire stay.

Being a city of almost 9 million people the city is really a paradis for street photography and what better camera to bring along than the Fujifilm X100F. It’s stealthy appearance as well as the super quiet leaf shutter helped me get great candid shots. The amazingly modern architecture in London was also a great source of inspiration for my photography. This is a collection of a few of my favorite images from the trip.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Walking and thinking

 

Time to think and contemplate all by oneself is a rarity these days. At least for me. Since I discovered photography I have also been starting to take more frequent walks and just bring my camera along for the ride. The more I do it, the more addicting it gets. What will I find the next time? The nature and urban environment is ever changing and opens new opportunities for photos every day. It doesn’t have to be anything fancy, maybe not even exciting but that is part of why I find it interesting. This hunt also lets my mind relax and gets me that time to think. So try it out some time. Put your shoes on and bring a camera, who knows what you might find to take pictures of.

 

 

 

 

München street style

Minga, München, Munich. It’s a lot more than Oktoberfest and great beer. The third largest city in Germany, the capital of Bavaria and also my home this past autumn and winter. It feels very homelike; opening and welcoming. The urban area is beautiful and has been a great developing and inspiring factor for my photography. So here’s a shout-out: Travel to Munich! You won’t regret it.

   

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.
