In search of good light

In search of good light

Tweet I have just spent a whole week in New York with some of my photography friends. I have never been there before. In fact I have only been to the US once , in a wedding in Minnesota close to fifteen years ago. Travelling west from Europe brings one advantage – you wake up […]


Shooting at dusk

Shooting at dusk

Tweet The dark months are coming to an end.  After a heavy snowfall last night it was refreshing to walk home while looking at a clear, saturated blue sky. The sun had set, but it was not yet dark. The fact that it wasn’t already dark when I left work reminds me that there are brighter […]


Yellow and Blue

Yellow and Blue

Tweet I’m a sucker for street lamps! Especially when I can find lamps next to each other that have different color temperatures. I love this part of Oslo, one of the areas where they built a lot of buildings at the same time. Around 1890-95. I hope this area stays like this forever and that […]


Mood

Tweet I feel priviledged to cross the town hall square (Rådhusplassen) on my way to work everyday. Today was the last workday before the new year. Made me feel a bit… reflective. Or thoughtful. ;-) Looking back at a great workyear with plenty of challenges and learning. This image was shot was about an hour […]

I love shooting in fog.


Reflected Sunlight

Reflected Sunlight

Tweet I love it when the sun is at that specific angle where the light is reflected back on the building across the street. I love the soft light it creates in the street.

The woman passing by is lit up by the reflection from the window.


Can’t help it!

Can't help it!

Reflections when you least expect it.


Repetition as a compositional element

Repetition as a compositional element

Tweet  Repetition of shape is said to be a strong element in composition, as the eye will wander from one to the other.  It is one of the things I am looking for when walking around town with the camera. I’ve had a bit of an overdose of photography lately, as I’ve been working intensely […]


Happy New Year!

Tweet Quite a high ISO used for this image but it is fun to try and us other light sources. Best Wishes for the New Year!!


Painting with Light – again

Tweet I have figured out that 30 seconds is okay as a starting point with the camera on manual mode. You need time to light around the subject. I started with f/16 and adjusted up or down until the image was light enough but not burnt out. Use one focus point, focus on the eye […]
