I came across some tutorials about using off-camera flash on Youtube. The photographer is Bert Stephani.
This is the first video, you can find the rest on youtube.

Stairs and Shadows

When I got home I discovered that one of the lamps in the staircase was not working, and an extra set of shadows was the result.

Tourist in my home town

Sometimes all it takes is to put on my "tourist glasses" to spot a "new" location.

This type of architectural image I find adifficult to keep free of barrel distortion and converging verticals.
The filter I use in Photoshop is Filter -> Distort -> Lens Correction.

I've been awfully quiet...

I am trying to put together a Blurb book and it is really more difficult than I thought. But I have been very inspired by Susan Hayre Thelwell.

Tonight we got the results from the spring competition in Oslo Kamera Klubb, and the image that I am using for the cover of my book won first place in one of the five categories. A pleasant surprise!
The image, and also the book, is called "Folk".

I also won a third place, and two of my other images were accepted so that is 4 out of 6 were awarded.

The images were as follows:

1st place:


3rd place:



"Rope Swing"

"Ice Skaters"
