What happends after a couple of months in a drawer…

When I go somewhere to photograph, I’ll usually take with me a number of different cameras. My Hasselblad is of course always with me, often together with one or two pinhole cameras and any small point-and-shoot, usually an LC-A.
In November -15 when I was going to Isle of Harris in Scotland, I was eager to simplify and only take three pinhole cameras with me. But I became coward and did not dare go without my trusty old Hasselblad…..

Back home, when I developed all the films, both Fuji Velvia that was my choice for colour, and the different black and white films, I found that I only cared about the pinhole images. All images were taken with long exposure times, pinhole images naturally becomes that because of the type of camera, and the Hasselblad images because I use Lee filters of different density to reach the long exposure that I need to get the expression I want.

But my Hasselblad images looked so boring compared to my pinhole images …. So they stayed in the drawer …..
Now in late summer, after a very busy spring with relocation and other things that filled my time, I found the almost forgotten films that I first didn’t like.
And again the analogue process have done wonders for me! Elapsed time has released my emotional attachment to the moment of capture, and I can look more objectively at my images.
Guess if I was surprised when I found that I just love almost twenty of those I first rejected! So now I’ve made a gallery with images from my trip to Isle of Harris in the Outer Hebrides.

All images are taken with my Hasselblad and Fuji Velvia.
Black and white images and pinhole images can be found here, here, here and here.

And again, I want to celebrate the analogue process, and thank everyone who contributes to its persistence as a choice! Enjoy!🙂

A piece of our paradise for WPPD 2016

My latest post on LensLessNess, from my WPPD 2016.
Enjoy! 🙂

Lenslessness

Me and my love has recently bought a piece of pure paradise…. We have not moved there quite yet, but in a couple of weeks we will actually live there…

It is on an island in the north of the Stockholm archipelago, and we just can’t wait, so for this year’s Worldwide Pinhole Photography Day we went there, and I was equipped with my Zero Image 2000 Back To Nature, which is actually what we are doing with this move… We are moving into pure nature, just by the sea, and with a slice of our own forest.

So, this is some of my images taken on WPPD 2016, from our paradise❤
