Akershus fortress - the rampant

I selected a"Sunny" white balance to get the crisp clear blue. Also remember to set the focus point on the silhouettes and underexpose by 1-2 stops, to ensure that you get sharp silhouettes and avoid a burnt-out sky.

For the second-to-last shot I have converted to b/wh and then tinted the image.
The last one is only converted to s/wh. Simon was my model here and since the picture is taken from a lower level I asked him to come a bit closer so that I actually could see his legs.


  1. Very nicely done silhouettes:) I like them alot. With the BLUE sky and blck trees as contrast. love it :) I'll be watching :)

  2. Dette blei veldig bra
    Nydelig med bakgrun og siluettene var kjempe fine.
    God helg

  3. Knallfin serie, hvor jeg syns det siste er det beste.

  4. I like the black and white photo the most, excellent composition. The gray behind the figure adds depth to the scene. Well done.
