    Fotoalbum med nogle af de billeder, jeg har taget gennem tiden.

    Photo Album with some of the photographs I have taken over the years.

Photographs at an Exhibition

På denne hjemmeside viser jeg nogle af mine fotografier.
 
On this site, I display some of my photographs.
 
Optagelserne er forsynet med tekniske data såsom kameramærke og -model, optik, brændvidde, lukkertid, blænde og ISO-værdi samt optagelsesdato og -år.
 
The photographs are provided with technical information such as camera make and model, lens, focal length, shutter speed, aperture, ISO value and the date and year of capture.
 
Ingen af de viste fotografier er beskåret (jeg beskærer aldrig) eller på nogen måde ændret med billedbehandlingsprogrammer (med undtagelse af mindre justeringer af farve, kontrast og skarphed).
 
None of the displayed photographs is cropped (I do not use image cropping) or altered in any way with photo editors (except for minor adjustments of colour, contrast, and sharpness).
 
Jeg værdsætter især objektiver fra de analoge kameraers tid, hvorfor mange af de viste billeder (i alt flere end 1200) er taget med objektiver fra 1960'erne, 1970'erne, 1980'erne og 1990'erne. Fotografier taget med ​​disse objektiver kan have en unik karakter og personlighed, hvilket imidlertid også betyder, at de kan afsløre flere (iboende) 'objektiv-fejl' sammenlignet med nutidens digitale objektiver. Et godt objektiv er dog ikke altid et perfekt objektiv. Ligeledes behøver et fotografi ikke at være knivskarpt for at være et godt fotografi.
 
I'm particularly fond of the lenses from the analogue camera era, so many of the shots shown (more than 1200 in total) are taken with vintage lenses from the 1960s, 1970s, 1980s, and 1990s. The rendering from these lenses can have a unique character and personality, which also means that it can reveal multiple (inherent) 'lens flaws' compared with lenses of today for digital photography. A great lens, however, isn't necessarily always a perfect lens. Likewise, a photograph doesn't have to be razor-sharp to be a great photograph.
 
Besonders schätze ich die Objektive aus der Ära der analogen Kameras, weshalb viele der gezeigten Fotos (insgesamt mehr als 1200) mit Objektiven aus den 1960er, 1970er, 1980er und 1990er Jahren aufgenommen wurden. Die mit diesen Objektiven aufgenommene Fotos können einen einzigartigen Charakter und eine einzigartige Persönlichkeit haben, was jedoch auch bedeutet, dass sie im Vergleich zu heutigen digitalen Objektiven mehrere (inhärente) „Objektivfehler“ aufweisen können. Ein gutes Objektiv ist jedoch nicht immer ein perfektes Objektiv. Ebenso muss ein Foto nicht gestochen scharf sein, um ein gutes Foto zu sein.

(From the golden age of 35mm film SLR cameras, the 1970s, a fully mechanical camera of absolute high-end quality. Still working, taking pictures of the same high quality as then. Nikon's professional film SLR camera 1959-1973, the Nikon F. The model depicted is from 1970. It will probably still work 50 years from now, while today's digital cameras (even the most advanced) will long ago have been discarded as outdated technology. They already are after two or three years. Perhaps the production of film for 35mm cameras at that time has been resumed on a grand scale? The analogue film cameras might have a bright future!
