Travel Photography versus Street Photography

Travel Photography versus Street Photography

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 […]


Picking the Moment

Picking the Moment

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 […]


Meeting Giuseppe

Meeting Giuseppe

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 […]


Street Photography workshop

Street Photography workshop

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 […]


Warming up!

Warming up!

Tweet I am attending a course in Street Photography this weekend, and it actually started this evening. It has been some time since I have been “shooting” people and I feel it takes some time to get back into it. But it has to start with lifting the camera to the eye! I often find […]


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.

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 […]


Straight off the Production Line

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 […]

Dark Streets

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 […]


Everything in fur

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 […]
