The images are from my privet archive. Sometimes I like to bring my Leica when doing family stuff. These pictures are from a playdate with my doter and her friend at Busfabriken in Norrköping Sweden.

It is quite liberating to use an analog camera when shooting these types of pictures. No screen to help with composition and other tweaks. Just shoot a couple of frames and move on. The drawback is it sometimes takes a while to see the images. I shot 7 images that time and not everyone came out great but I will share all this time.
The most difficult thing to handle, in my opinion, is low light. It is hard to get good shadows when you are at the edge of what the film can handle. When shooting digital you can always check how the shadows work out in the exposure and can relay on the extended dynamics. The option to take multiple shots with different exposure on film is somewhat limited if you don’t want to go through a ton of film.
