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.

There are many books about photography, but I do not experience that to many of them focus on the kind of photography I do. This book does, it also added some cool ideas I will work with in the future. The book is called “Moodscapes” and is written by Rebekka Gudleifsdottir. The book gives a history of her photography, suggestions what she thinks […]
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, […]
Today I am going on a travel for an organisation I am the Chairman of to Iceland. There is a official program where some guiding is part of it. I will of course not pass on this opportunity and will bring some of my camera equipment to be able to take some landscape photos there. Both on the guiding. Hope the others won’t hate me when I set up my rig and used 15-20 minutes each place I want to […]
