Hunting the disappearing light

This month has been busy and this means not very much time out and about with the camera. Most of the pictures have actually been captured in my home or just a few blocks away from it. As the light keeps disappearing (sunsets at 3 pm this time of year, in Sweden) the images are moody and darkish.

I have also come around to re-edit some images from a trip to Hong Kong a couple of years back (before my Fuji-days). I’m really happy with how they turned out so I have got to share a few of them too.

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.

These coordinates lead to Reykjavik, Iceland. This post will be a quick trip report from my June holiday in Iceland. The country and the landscapes are like nothing I have ever seen and should (according to me) be experienced by everyone. This post focuses on Iceland’s capital Reykjavik but I will post some landscapes as well. Reykjavik is a hip city that houses around two thirds of the population on Iceland. That’s about it for this time. I will let the images speak for themselves.

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.
