Greetings friends/family/acquaintances/birds of the wild!
It’s been a mighty while that I’ve been able to pop in and give a quick update of the always unusual shenanigans I drop myself into. As expected, I’ve been up to no good, diving head first into something travel related. I’ll be hopping aboard to update more often, as I’ve got some great articles and photos I’ve yet to flush out. And of course, future travel plans are already in the works!
I recently had the privilege to take a 9-day trip to Copenhagen, Denmark and Malmo, Sweden to practice some street photography. Outside of challenging myself to finally do a solo trip to a non-English native speaking country (it’s WAY easier than you think), I also wanted to challenge myself in terms of the equipment used. Instead of bringing my go-to DSLR camera, I brought my Canon G15 hybrid along for the ride. It has all the same features and functionality of a proper DSLR camera, but without the interchangeable lenses. This ended up being crucial, as a lot of the shots I captured were incredibly incognito due to the fact that the camera was small and relatively hidden.
I wanted to capture what life was like on the streets of Copenhagen from the viewpoint of a local. So if you’re coming here and expecting to see pretty, epic looking postcard-worthy shots of Denmark’s biggest city, you will be severely disappointed. Instead, you’ll see some of my personal favorite black and white photographs detailing the intimate situations that local Danes would see on a daily basis. Each photo is unique, ad tells a certain story of the nature of Scandinavia’s 2nd largest city. Enjoy!
