    Night street photography workshop

    When the sun sets and the countryside turns completely dark, cities become interesting places with contrasting lights. In winter, we spend most of our ‘street time’ in the dark. So why wouldn’t we shoot in the dark? Yes, light is more challenging and completely different compared to regular daylight, but the dark opens up new […]

    Quicker than AF

    Sometimes people ask how on earth I focus my camera with moving subjects. Well, I have trained a lot to get there, but in some situations you don’t need any training at all and will still be faster than the quickest AF-camera in the world. This image was shot on Cuba, while I was having […]

    Introduction workshop on a sunny day

    What does a typical introduction workshop look like? Well, because my clients are usually not yet very familiar with the M-system, I always begin with explaining how the rangefinder and the menus work.

    You are the proud owner of a rangefinder camera and although you made some pretty good pictures, you think you can get more out of your camera.
