About Real Moments


Hi! I am a passionate amateur photographer from Norway. Today I photograph exclusively with Leica. Unfortunately, my English is pretty poor. I have also been diagnosed with Asperger syndrome. So I will not write much in this blog, but rather let the pictures speak for themselves.

My portraits are casual and shot with available light only. I usually don't ask anyone to pose, because I want to capture natural and "real moments". Hence the name of my blog. Nevertheless, I always use fully manual settings on the camera, and with Leica M there is only manual focus. I don't even use the camera's light meter, instead I use my own "backwards sunny sixteen rule", based on the widest aperture. As you may have seen, I love shallow depth of field!

I also love the "classic" look from older lenses, especially those designed by Walter Mandler around the 1980s, but I have a couple of modern rendering alternatives as well.

I wish I could travel around the world and visit exciting places to photograph, but unfortunately I cannot afford that (instead I've spend my last money on Leica gear). So all photos are taken in my immediate surroundings.
