This is where I found him #10
It was one of those great days of spring where life kind of stops time for a while. The weather was constantly great, there was no wind and best of all – it’s this time of the year where there’s no mosquitos or annoying bugs. We where kids for a day again and it was awesome.
From my trip to Paris last week with my brother.
I used my brand new Lensbaby that I got as a gift from the guys at uKontrøll! You can achieve some pretty cool effects with this lens.
From today’s protest against the demonstrations of Swedish party Svenskarnas Parti, 1st of May.
When I’m composing a picture there’s some things I like to keep in mind. One of them is the The rule of thirds. In my head I picture a grid and then place the subject in one of the grid’s cutting points. This is probably one of the most known tricks in the book, but still not everyone thinks about it. It’s an easy way to make your photographs “heaver”. It can make them pop. Take a look at the picture to the left to see what I mean. I use this a lot when I’m cropping images too.
Photoshop tip: If you’re using Adobe’s Photoshop there’s a simple way to get a grid overlaying your images. Go to Edit > Preferences > Guides, Grid & Slices. Use the following:
Press OK when you’re done. To display the grids press CTRL+’ (or go to View > Show > Grid).
On Mac it’s Command+’ (or go to View > Show > Grid).
However. Remember that rules are meant to be broken!
There’s no doubt that my friends are a huge part of my photos. Yet again I find him while I’m on one of my strolls in the nature. Thank you Jonathan!
Me and my broken Rolleiflex. Thanks goes to Staffan for helping out taking this. It’s for my website danielsilfver.se.
For my foreign visitors I guess this doesn’t really concern you since my blog has always been available in English. But from here on now I’ll continue writing in both English and Swedish. You can change the chosen language in the top by clicking on the flags.
I was over at uKontrøll a few days ago for a photoshoot. I had lots of fun helping them with some pictures for their future press releases.
