Paris: The City of Light on film and in early digital

A shot that nicely illustrates the “City of Light” moniker. Leica M6 (pre-TTL), 50 Summicron 1962 vintage, Tri-X. City of Light: With a reputation like that how can any photographer resist rushing off to photograph the entire city? The problem with Paris is that there is...

Piss Alley

FUJIFILM X-Pro2 (23mm, f/2, 1/125 sec, ISO800) Most streets in the centre of Tokyo are well lit, modern and super clean. This one is not and I love it. Very close to the famous Shinjuku station (the busiest train station in the world) you can...

Pure Magic at Zabriskie Point

FUJIFILM X-T1 (55mm, f/3.5, 1/210 sec, ISO200) I love sunsets and I have experienced thousands. I also love sunrises but I have experienced far less especially in June. Of course it’s easy to see why and also why I had to see this one. After a very...

Too Hot to Walk

SONY ILCE-6000 (23mm, f/8, 1/125 sec, ISO100) I think the images of that blog post are not in the correct chronological order. I guess I missed to check the time, date setting on my cameras before the trip. That’s only one of the things you...

Riona Neve ~ Urbex in Belgium

I shot this collection of pictures of top model Riona Neve on my Urbex workshop in Charleroi, Belgium, May 2018. This was a technical session covering all aspects of shot design, lighting set up and exposure balancing. I still like to get striking finished images...

Fujifilm X-T100 Review – Quality on a budget

Here we go again. These Fujifilm camera first look reviews has become quite the theme for me, apparently. I do wish that I would get more time to update the blog with other stuff than Fujifilm releasing a new camera, but it’s just the way...

Agua Stormproof Sling

Camera bags have come a long way, what started off a just a simple means of carrying your camera, lenses and basic accessories have now become an extended part of our photography kit. If you’ve invested in expensive cameras, lenses or even filters you’ll want...
