In digital photography, shutter lag is the time it takes between you releasing the shutter and the image being captured on the sensor. It's the time during which you release the control over the photograph and trust the camera, it's the fraction of a second in which the magic happens. About me & photos.
You'll find my portfolio here
So this is me, doing one of my least favorite things, posing for photos, but I thought I at least should introduce myself:
I’m Magnus, I live in Gothenburg, Sweden but spend most of my time on the road for both work and leisure. I do not really consider myself to be a photographer, simply because I rarely grab a camera with the explicit purpose of making photos (it do happens but it’s rare) and I usually do not have a clear idea of what kind of photos I want to take before I do it. A “proper” photographer for me is either an artist wanting to express something, using the camera as a tool for doing so, or someone documenting phenomena for posterity for educational, informative or entertainment purposes by means of a camera. I belong to neither of those categories but here’s the thing; I travel a lot and when I do I usually also walk a lot, often for 10-12 hours a day, since I feel this is the best way to get to know a new place for real. With me on these walks I always take one of my cameras and that together with the places I see, the people I meet and the reflections I make then decides what kind of photos I end up with. Consequently I don’t have a photographic style I call my own and you will therefore find everything from portraits and landscapes to street photography and wildlife here, all depending on what I’ve done and where I went.
I don’t take photos, I take snapshots of my life as and when I experience it. It’s a trip and you can join me!
While I must confess that I’m somewhat of a geek and a gear head when it comes to technical gadgets and do enjoy dwelling in reviews, specifications and performance, and therefore probably change gear more often than I really need to, cameras are in the end something of a tool to me. I have no emotional attachment to my cameras and I do not really care about the technical details as long as the camera suits me and my purposes. That in the end also means that I tend to use the gear best suited for the specific situation. For that reason you will find photos here taken with a wide range of cameras and lenses (this list will probably continue to grow over time):
