Stockholm In October

When it comes to photography I’ve always been a “all or nothing-guy”. At times I spend hours after hours just to get better, but at other times there can be 2 months without using my “normal” camera, and at that time just settling with my iPhone or other smaller devices.

In autumn though, the feeling always gets me. The colors, the air and so in. Magic!

Yesterday I got up early to take some photos of Stockholm. The weather channel had promised a great morning, and it was right! Amazing.

Half of these images (the sunny ones) are without any post-processing (except lens correction), while the others are using a specifik preset that I’ve developed over the last months. The preset is based on a preset I downloaded from Trey Ratcliff. I like the atmosphere it brings to the photo.

Best wishes for a great autumn!

Astronomers view of earth – the overview effect

What an amazing video this is! If you just have 90 seconds, you’ll get the big picture (literally), at the very start of the video. If you have more, you’ll in for some spectular views of earth, and some really interesting thoughts about us, we, the earth in space.

Actually, I think a video like this in some minor way can change our view of the world, our planet or “spaceship in space”.

Sunlight

Since I’m working in the middle of the city I’m often walking around town to meet customers and colleagues. These little walks are almost always a good time for reflection both business wise and personal. Last week, during one of these rounds I passed a church and couldn’t help noticing the sun light on the street.

Many times when I take a photo, I often think about form and what “that square” can express; like happiness, spring time, pollution, racing, spare time and so on.

Maybe it’s because I’ve lived in the city for too long, but for me this image represented calmness. Those first leaves of summer, on an empty street, sunny but still in the shadow. What I liked the most was the form. Repetitive, and not absolutely square.

I hope you all have a great start of the week!
