Most visitors to Copenhagen never leave the inner city. It’s such a pity. This string of lovely, artificial lakes can be found only a few minutes from the main tourist route. They were created when the battlements were torn down, about the same time as Tivoli.

Copenhagen 2, 2013
Same location, same model – different camera…
This is taken with my Nikon D5100. Here I’m able to indicate the surroundings by blurring them and focus more strongly on what I really want to show – the young woman. A matter of taste. By using different settings I would be able to keep everything in focus as well.
Copenhagen 1, 2013
This is a fun little experiment. One day early in the fall I took a friend and two cameras to Søerne in Copenhagen. This is the result of a portrait taken with a Leica D-Lux4. It’s a compact camera without interchangeable lenses but it shoots RAW format and lets you adjust aperture, shutter speed or shoot manual if you feel the need. And it looks cool. So I bought it used without being completely sure what my plans were for it. I thought it would liv win my car so I would never be without a camera but that didn’t quite work for me.
As you will see when I post another portrait in the same surroundings tomorrow, there is a big difference between the images the Leica and the Nikon will produce. I’m sure preference will be personal. I really love my Nikon so I don’t use the Leica much (as in ‘hardly at all’) but I think it might well be a better choice for street photography – if I was to get into that at some point 🙂
