Photo location: La Corbière Lighthouse

I must admit I have a certain fascination for lighthouses. I haven't photographed many, but whenever I see one, I get a feeling of safety. Their function is to guide the seafarers and to warn about dangerous coastlines, leading the way to safe ports. I have a childhood memory about lighthouses. There was one quite…Les mer Photo location: La Corbière Lighthouse

Prague Day for Night

When we were i Prague recently I took this rather boring, quite "touristy" shot of the rooftops from a nice spot near the castle. I didn't think much of it at first, but at least I didn't delete it from my camera. When I got it into my computer I found that it might have…Les mer Prague Day for Night

Daffodils and white balance revisited

After sharing yesterday's post I got a comment on facebook about the relationship between white balance and RAW vs JPG. The person in question meant that I was wrong, and that the whole reason my image lacked colour was because I shot RAW. Today I'm going to prove that I am right. My opponent is not…Les mer Daffodils and white balance revisited

A daffodil «macro» and the importance of white balace

A couple of weeks ago I photographed some mini daffodils that we keep in pots outside our house. It had been raining, so there were some nice drops of water on the flowers, giving some extra life to the images. I tried out a technique that I haven't tried so much, a sort of "poor…Les mer A daffodil «macro» and the importance of white balace

My approach at the Ansel Adams style

As any landscape photographer, I am a big fan of the legendary American photographer Ansel Adams. I have also for a long time followed the French photographer Serge Ramelli, who lately has had a series of videos on his YouTube channel about how to take landscape photographs in the style of Ansel Adams. This inspired…Les mer My approach at the Ansel Adams style

Bridges of Bern, BW edition

I saw this video by Brendan van Son yesterday, about a photo he took in Bern, Switzerland. It reminded me of the one I took there almost two years ago. Brendan took his photo from the high bridge in the background, and it is much nicer than mine, as it is taken at sunset while…Les mer Bridges of Bern, BW edition

Stockholm: variations on a theme

I have finally got around to editing all of my photos from our trip to Stockholm around New Year. I have been way to busy with work, setting up a media server in my home and loading it with all our music and DVDs and lots of other stuff. When looking through my photos I…Les mer Stockholm: variations on a theme

Foggy Winter

We've had a few weeks of really cold winter weather here in the Eastern parts of Norway lately, with temperatures roughly around -15ᴼC. This weekend the temperature rose to just a few degrees below zero, brought by some mild and humid air from the south. This also brought fog, and I saw a chance to…Les mer Foggy Winter

Happy new year!

The new year is a few days old as I post this, and I feel it is quite descriptive of how my blogging has been the last year. I can only hope that in 2016 I will be better at posting consistently and more on time. Today's photo is a somewhat rare photo from me,…Les mer Happy new year!

November Sunrise

One good thing about winter is that you don't have to get up in the middle of the night to catch the sunrise. At this time of year the sun gets up around 8.30 where I live. Of course, in order to get the best light you have to be in place earlier than that,…Les mer November Sunrise
