I was out at sunset to shoot reflection and autumn colours at a lake in the forest nearby of the city I live in. When I was shooting landscapes the ducks came really close to the shore and I used the chance to take some photos of them real close with wide angle lens as well as taking a little movie of them. I got some nice landscape shots that day as well, so all in all it […]
Yesterday I was in Hvaler in South Norway. Hvaler is a group of islands that are placed in the Oslo-fjord towards the open sea to Denmark. So it offers surroundings that are quite unique, at least to where I usually am. Whenever I am at places like that I wish I could quit my day-job and move into a cabin and spend the days creating art in the vastness of the nature. Although it is only 2 hours with the […]
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 […]
Most days are exactly what you make them. There is nothing really remarkable happening. It is only you who have the opportunity to make them differentiate from other days. It is only you who can see the beauty in the day when most just see same old. It was a grey day. It was flat light, it was no particular waves, it was no particular wind, the clouds where high. My thought was to use the motion on the waves […]
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.
This weekend I was out in the forest by a lake called Nelaugsvannet. Here we had the experience of being totally alone in the forest. At breakfast a moose passed by the window. It was good to spend the weekend in the cabin. My idea was to get some different landscapes, as I of lately mostly have been shooting around the fjord in the blue hour for my artistic project, as mentioned in an earlier post. Equipment I brought with me: […]
Now I am back home from a weekend on Iceland. My first comment is that it is an amazing place on earth. The landscape is like never seen before; Very much affected of being an Volcanic Island, placed far up north with strong wind, strong currents in the ocean and a place where the weather shifts fast. There where layers of clouds with the sun behind it, there where mountains and hills, there where flat landscape as long as the […]
