I’ve been inactive for some time mainly because I’ve started shooting analog. But today I got my scanner so now I can start posting some developed film! I’ve been looking forward to this for a long time. Stay tuned for some analog fun!

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.

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.

The Grids In My Head

The Grids In My Head

The Grids In My Head  -- with grids 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:

Photoshop tip: Grid overlay

Press OK when you’re done. To display the grids press CTRL+’ (CMD+’ on Mac) or 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!

Let There Be Spring

This photo was taken roughly a month ago. Let it work as a moral boost in these rainy days when you thought spring was around the corner.

Jonathan endured -10°C for this picture. Take that humanity!

First post of the year. I should be ashamed. But here’s a picture of the silent forest now covered in snow.

Also from now on I’ll use a wider format of the pictures (now 960×640).

Misty Morning #2

From Where We Belong

I spent the weekend in the forest with Jonathan and Tobias. It was awesome. On Saturday morning we woke up at 4am to watch the civil twilight and the sunrise.

I Miss the Forest

Pictures like these makes me look forward to the woods again. The birds tweeting nonstop, the gentle breeze caressing your cheeks and the peace you feel of just sitting there. I’ll head for the trees this weekend and I’ll bring the camera.
