Review: Cinestill 50D 35mm Film in the Artic Circle

During a recent trip to Abisko in Northern Sweden (with a day trip to Narvik in Norway thrown in for good measure), I decided to give a roll of 35mm Cinestill 50D film a try. Known for a cinematic look in the right conditions (this film is repurposed Kodak motion picture film), I was keen to… Continue reading Review: Cinestill 50D 35mm Film in the Artic Circle

The Nikon F4 and Kodak Ektar 100

Wandering Around Abisko National Park

We took the overnight SJ Arctic Circle train from Uppsala Station to the Abisko Turist station stop, the journey takes about 16 hours or so. There is… Continue reading Wandering Around Abisko National Park

This has all come at a time in which I have made some important decisions and… Continue reading Returning to a Simpler (Prime) Time

Astrophotography with Micro Four Third (m43) cameras

However m43 cameras are still very capable of producing great results, particular when using any of the great fast lenses… Continue reading Astrophotography with Micro Four Third (m43) cameras

The Faroe Islands with the Olympus Tough TG-870

Recently I went on a weekend trip with a friend to the Faroe Islands. Part of the reason for this trip was to do a little bit of photography, so of course I took along my trusty OM-D E-M1 and my two favourite lenses (the M.Zuiko 17mm f/1.8 and 40-150 f/2.8). However during November the weather… Continue reading The Faroe Islands with the Olympus Tough TG-870

Swedish High Coast / Höga Kusten

In May, I went with friends to visit the Swedish High Coast (Höga Kusten) which is situated roughly 4 hours north of Uppsala (by car) and we did some hiking over two days around Skuleskogen National Park in Västernorrland.  The scenery is stunning, with thousands upon thousands of trees and fantastic views of the Baltic… Continue reading Swedish High Coast / Höga Kusten
