Tweet I love discussing photography in various forums on the web. It is such a wonderful opportunity to learn, although som of the discussions can tend to get heated. I try to phrase my comment so that it comes across as a personal opinion and not as I own any truth. I feel I learn the most […]
Tweet When in Italy in May Jay and I also went to Verona. I’d seen the Elliott Erwitt exhibition and suddenly saw dogs everywhere. It was a quite windy Sunday morning. i had already noticed these two guys approaching each other. Or rather the dogs pulling the two men in. I chose the final image […]
Tweet Through the Within-the-Frame-Photographic-Adventures with Jeffrey and David I have met a lot of other crazy obsessed photographers, and i am just back from a few days in Italy, staying outside Venice with my friend Jay who lives there now. A mini-reunion with Marjan and Luciano was also on the menu. Like a reunion of […]
Tweet I had figured I needed some inspiration again so I signed up for a street photography workshop this weekend. On friday evening we listened to an inspiring presentation of the teacher’s work, so I was very inspired on the way home! Yesterday morning we were shown a sequence from “The Genius of Photography”, the […]

Reflections when you least expect it.
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 […]
Tweet Went out for a walk with the camera after work today. I was fascinated by this revolving door at the central station in Oslo. There is something about doors and tunnels, where people can’t really escape! Study the legs of the guy in the last image. Can you see something odd? You probably have to […]
Tweet Taking pictures at night require a high ISO and your images will most likely be quite grainy, which again often makes a good b/wh. I love taking pictures in the streets at night, using only the street lights or lights from cars driving by. One trick you can use if you are not fond […]
Tweet I passed this shop one evening, as the owner was about to close. He was standing outside and the puppies were eager to join him in going home.To create a compelling photograph, there has to be a story. Visible or hidden. Something that makes people wonder, or smile. The reason why you are taking the […]
