When I go somewhere for work, I try to get just an hour or two to shoot. These shots are from a quick trip to Stockholm. The building is the old airport, which is still operational. I try to take the train as much as possible, but this tim I flew home.
I have this idea that I should focus my photography on Malmö Central Station. I work there, so I'm there all the time, but mostly because it's a lively place, always full of people moving about. Here are some pictures from Malmö Central Station shot at the top of 2018.
January is dark in Sweden and most of the photos I shot this month are either dark or shot inside. The first photo below, I saw while on my way home. As I didn't have my camera with me, I went home to pick it up and went back out in the lousy weather to take the picture. I am happy that I did.
When I first started shooting more "seriously", I had a Nikon D80 that I shot with it until the shutter broke down. Then I had it fixed and I shot even more with it. In fact, I used it once or twice last summer. It was a great camera, but at high ISO, the pictures weren't fantastic. So in order to avoid the high ISO numbers, I always tried to shoot with as long a shutter speed as I could get away with. This led to many blurry pictures, but when I was lucky enough to get a sharp one, it wasn't so noisy.
Now I'm using the marvellous cameras in Fujis X series, that produce fantastic pictures even at high ISO numbers, but it wasn't until just a few days ago that I realized that I was still shooting with the slowest possible shutter speed and that I was still getting all these blurry pictures for no good reason. So today, I set the shutter speed to 1/250 and went on a walk to try to hammer in this new way of shooting. In fact, about half of these pictures I shot at 1/1000 while riding my bike.
The circus is in town and I stole some shots of the artists backstage while they were making the horses ready for their performance.
