A view from above

Not many new images are captured at present as I am writing on an e-book.

Browsing through my archive for that purpose, brought back this image. I was walking around Camogli just to see if I could discover some interesting scenes, as I looked over the edge of what appeared to be a roof-top parking place. This man was trying to make his "guests" leave but they just kept coming back :-)

Shadow Play

I love anything that has to do with shadows and silhouettes! Here I chose a vantage point that allowed me to shoot straight agains the sun. This gives better control of the shadows. Better than shooting from the side.

Pigeons at the Piazza

From Piazza Navona in Rome earlier this year. I was fascinated by the dramatic expressions of the statues, and the pigeons showing no respect whatsoever. Sometimes when I start shooting in a new location it takes a little time to "warm up" and then pigeons or seagulls are easy targets.

Meet some of the Foto Femme Girls

Once a month I meet up with 9 other women I've met in Oslo Kamera Klubb. These meetings are a great source of inspiration to me.

Some of the femme's have their own web pages:
Liz Palm

Liz' photography has inspired me a lot and she has just been awarded Photographer of the year in the Norwegian Photographic Society. (And I think they should announce it soon on!)

Nina Staff

Nina just won the first round of Photographer of the Year in Four rounds alltogether.

Essi Frydenlund

Essi has had an exihibition and made a book with her husband.

Kristin Aafløy Opdan

With her background in theatre, as an actress, she has very dramatic images.

Solfrid Sande

I love her soft romatic images.

May Haukås

Landscapes, Dance, Black & White.

Nina Karud

A passion for Landscapes.

Photographers to bookmark

Not too many pictures taken these days as I am busy behind the keyboard.

In the meantime, I'd like to share some other photographer links with you.

I went to a book design course this spring and two photographers I met there have also published their books:

Stine Loe Jenssen
Stine's book is just out and her exhibition is opening in Hønefoss outside Oslo on June 18th.

Anne Helene Gjelstad
Anne Helene also has her book accompanying her exhibition.
