“To me, photography is basically about collecting materials for the ideas I want to bring to life.” – Erik Johansson
Hasselblad H6D-50c Medium Format
50MP 43.8 x 32.9mm CMOS Sensor, 16-Bit Color, 14-Stop Dynamic Range
Hasselblad H6D-50c. It’s not always the fastest or lightest camera but when used in the right way it delivers amazing quality. Not only in terms of resolution and details but also the way it captures the colours.
Hasselblad HCD 24mm f/4.8
Aperture Range: f/4.8 to f/32, Improved Shutter Unit, 1/2000 Sec Sync
Profoto B1X and Pro7b. I seldom shoot in a studio, unless it’s smaller objects or props. I rather bring light on location when the sun isn’t out. To me it’s really important that light has a purpose, why is it there? I never just throw in some light for the look unless it makes sense.
Fstop Tilopa, great bag for photo trips and I can walk with it for a long time fully packed without it being too painful. For city trips I usually take a smaller bag.
