Winter river

Bergger Pancro 400 (810)

Its funny how much better I find a photo of winter to be during summer. Winter is a beautiful time of year, but, in all honesty – it can be a pain as well with its short, cold days. I suppose its just more soothing to have a look at winter in a comfortable summer evening. I used to run up and down that river during winter. I enjoyed it – its a wonderful river and I wanted to photograph it. I shot this with my 8×10″ large format camera on Bergger Pancro 400.

Barcode perspectives

Ektar (810)

I am aware of that these buildings, the Oslo Barcode, have been photographed a lot already. But I wanted to give it ago too. This first above is one of the first I took with my large format camera. It is shot on Ektar. It was early evening and it might be a bit underexposed. Nevertheless, considering my experience at the time I’m quite happy with it.

The analog boats vs the digital ones

FujiPro 400H at 800 (120)

This is Jylland. The Danish west coast. You don’t see too much of the scenery in the photos, but it’s a fantastic coastal landscape. It’s very different from my native Norwegian coast but I still feel a sense of familiarity and ease there. The first photo is analog and shot with my Hasselblad 500C/M on FujiPro 400 pushed one stop, while the three others were shot digitally the next day with my Canon 6D. And to me these photos represents what separates analog photography from digital photography.

At church

Delta 3200 (120)

I took this photo at my nephew’s confirmation. The picture is of my niece – his older sister. It’s shot with my Hasselblad 500C/M on Ilford Delta 3200. I always use this film when shooting indoors. I’ve never mastered the use of flash to be honest. The film’s characteristics, I find, suits the scene in this wooden church very well – ads a bit of mystery or atmosphere to it.

Sea city

Ektar (810)

This is a picture of my hometown Kristiansund. It is located on three small Islands on the northwestern coast of Norway, with the city center located at the harbor basin. This is also shot with a large format camera, using color film this time. And again I’m applying camera movements to accentuate what I find to be characteristic for this city. But also because I wanted to shoot wide open and try the tilt effect for what it’s worth. I found this motive to be a perfect place to try that effect to the fullest.
