Get Featured: Daniel Fredholm
Daniel got back into photography after having kids, and ran with it. Now he shares with us his work after a trip to Rome.
I picked up a digital camera of a simpler kind to take pictures of my growing family. The bug bit me, and I stared to get more obsessive in my approach. I got a serious digital camera, a Fui X100T, which works like a dream. But the memories of dealing with film : shooting, developing and printing kept coming back to me. An urge was beginning to emerge which proved harder and harder to resist. Finally, I caved in and got myself a Lecia M2 and a Summicron 35mm; a combo that seems to be made in heaven. Since then I am shooting nothing but film and loving every minute of it!
In October 2016 I went on a 4 day intensive to Rome. Needless to say, the Leica was brought along together with 10 rolls of Tri-X. I could not have imagined the abundance of juicy motives that awaited me. Rome really has it all. Ancient and not so ancient buildings, fabulous views and all those interesting (and forgiving) people. I ran out of film before the last day was up, I just could not stop shooting. Please forgive me if the pictures are a bit touristy and even cheesy. I just could not help myself in The Eternal City.

Please make sure you come and comment, polite and constructive critique is welcome.
WOW !! I am very impressed with your work. I have been shooting black and white since I was a kid. Am eighty two now and slowing down, but still at it. I read JCH every day and seldom am so impressed as I am with your work. I wish that you had included more of your technical info such as flash/no flash, filters, and developers. Thanks for motivating me again.
Thanks a lot Tom! Much appreciated! Regarding technical info I am happy to oblige. I use a Leica M2 with a Summicron 35. The film is Tri-X, maybe the odd Ilford HP5. I use no flash. If the sky is blue with clouds, I often use a yellow filter. For developing, I go for standing development with Rodinal.
Thank You for getting back to me, at my age, motivation is a great help.
These are some lovely photos.
