One big advantage with doing something regularly is that you in time get better because you know the techniques, because you are better prepared and because you know the surrounding landscape better. I have heard this expressed as that “skilled people have more luck” once. This evening I was again out, it was a good day, a mix of rain and sun, which means clouds, possible good lights, possible more. This evening it turned out to be a light rain […]
Last evening I was down at the beach at a place I like to go to. A peninsula called Bygdøy. On the south end you have some distanse to the horizon and can often view the sun going down. This day was rather dark. However as it is with clouded days there are always, or close to, cracks in the cloud layer where sun gets trough and with long exposure this spots or cracks get more visible. All photos here are […]
Well I have inspired myself. I liked the video of simplicity I made last time. So I have made more, and they are much like the earlier once rather simple. This is on of the tide rising, and trough the film it rises just about an inch.
Today I was out to take some shots at the beach, was looking for stones that would obstruct the waves and create exciting movements. Today was the first day in about a week where there wasn’t a cloudy sky. The water was much higher today then usual. Perhaps due to the close to full moon we have now ? I used my main body, the 1D Mark IV, with the EF 16-35mm F4L IS lens. I used tripod of course, […]
During this autumn I have had and will continue to have a reoccurring theme in my photos. “Blue Hour” The Blue hour explained at wikipedia.com The blue hour is the period of twilight each morning and evening when the sun is a significant distance below the horizon and the residual, indirect sunlight takes on a predominantly blue hue. This effect is caused by the relative diffusibility of short blue wavelengths of light versus the longer red wavelengths. To me the time […]
Once again I find myself together with my camera out to get the shots I want when the day is going towards an end. There is something very special with the time when the darkness falls upon us. I like how everything falls to rest and how the light is more crisp. Where I live in Norway the autumn and later the winter brings the darkness rather early in the day. It is a perfect place for photographers loving that […]
The last two days it has been raining here. rather heavy after almost two weeks with sun. Sun is nice, but sun often entail no clouds. Clouds give pictures more life. As the rain stopped I wanted to capture some of the beauty and drama that was out there. I put my camera on the tripod and took the shot. The photo under was shot at 24mm @ 4s, f18, ISO 50 This is a great landscape with amazing contrasts and […]
I wanted to go to the shore and take some nice exposures of the light that is during the so called «blue hour», which is the time right before it gets dark after sunset. I chose to go to the peninsula Bygdøy that is in the south of Oslo. Here I had good sight towards the light industrialised area Fornebu, with the headquarter of among Telenor. It was clear weather and almost not wind. There were just a few waves […]
