I’m thinking about the future and what possibilities lies ahead. I’m enjoying photography because of it’s amazing capabilities to take a snapshot of a certain amount of time that absolutely never will come back. And then I was thinking perhaps there will be a technique invented in the future that can play recorded light. Retrace the movements I made with my body and sort of replay me moving in my living room.
I was commissioned by the magazine Upphandling24 to portray Fredrik who works as a Controller at the municipality of Skövde in Sweden. It made the frontpage!
I took this picture of Samuel using my friend Jani Oinonen’s studio lighting. We had some fun the three of us fooling around experimenting with different light settings.
Portraying trees is something of a struggle for me. Because I love pictures of trees. And when I see other people’s photos of them I always think they do it so much better. Also the digital sensor is just not meant for capturing nature.
Here’s two pictures of the same scene. It was captured during an ongoing sunset leaving the trees all highlighted and the foreground and Marcus covered in shadow. This mixed with the heavily saturated leaves that where literally burning in the sky. It’s so hard for me to turn this view into something realistic and true without making it look surreal. That’s why I shared both of them. One is a little more tampered with and the other is basically straight from the sensor.
