New Darktable video

After a few weeks of nothing, I have finally made a new Darktable video. This time all about adjusting the tonal values of an image. This is part one of two covering this topic. In this part I mostly show what the different modules do on a greyscale black to white gradient. This is a…Les mer New Darktable video

I was planning to announce all my Darktable videos with a blog post, but so far I have only done it twice. But here is episode 8, about some of the modules in Lighttable mode. The modules I cover in this video is Select, Selected Image(s), History Stack and Styles. There's a lot you can…Les mer Another Darktable video

Timber Floater's Cabins

An evening at the Timber Booms

On the evening of one of the immensely hot days we have had here in Norway lately, I took a trip to Fetsund and the timber booms museum there. I have been there once before, a few years ago. There were some nice clouds in the sky so I had hopes for a few good…Les mer An evening at the Timber Booms

The Sound of Silence

Our hectic lives are filled with so much sound. Noise of all kinds, from traffic, from planes passing low overhead, the neighbour's lawn mower. People talking, be it work mates, family or friends. Overly enthusiastic kids on the bus or that businessman who just has to let everyone listen to his very important phone call…Les mer The Sound of Silence

Meet the Starling family

I have had a starling family as neighbours for a few days. We had a long weekend in our cabin, and just beside the cabin there is a large apartment complex. This consists of two old, half dead aspen trees. One of them has a lot of storeys with holes that have been occupied by generations of birds over many years. This time […]

Sunset Boat

Just after sunset, late April. The lake is like a mirror, the air completely still. An old wooden boat is moored by the tiny beach. It is afloat but looking abandoned and disused. Nobody has bothered to empty it after the last rainfall. Patiently it waits for somebody to row it again. This image is…Les mer Sunset Boat

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

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
