In your bag 497, Rikard Landberg
Rikard is here to show us how simple it can be. No bag in sight, so I am guessing that it a case of stuffing it in his pockets and shooting. Check it out.

My name is Rikard and I live in a small town in Sweden. I’m starting to get close to 30 years old and has recently started studying again.

I put almost all my free time on my own photo projects although I occasionally do some work too.

I have enjoyed taking photos since I got a canon film point and shoot camera when I was about 8 years.

In my teen years I went through quite a few cheap digital cameras before I bought my first DSLR a canon 350d. In a fairly short time I replaced my 350d with a Canon 40d that quickly became a Canon 5d. My 5d was my best friend for many years until I stumbled across a Yashica Electro 35 on a Swedish auction site.

I was completely sold on the whole rangefinder concept and started saving for a film Leica. I sold my 5d and bought a Minolta CLE that turned into a Leica CL that turned into a Leica M2 and that is where I am now!

I use my Leica M2 with a SUMMICRON 35. I only use Kodak T-Max 400 and Ilford Delta 400th

Fuji X100 is my backup camera that I use for work. I have always photographed with prime lenses so a Fuji X100 was an obvious choice instead of a new DSLR when i needed a digital again.

I measure the light with my Seconic 208. (my photo blog)
