Thursday Photowalk

Finally managed to get out on a little photowalk again last night.

Had my best friend with me today, who recently picked-up video and filming again and wanted to practice different filming styles. Had a great time shooting together.

We first went to a park in Oslo, Frognerparken. Where I got a couple of pictures to a project I’m thinking about, but there where most Pokemon players around, so only people with their heads down in their phones.

Later we headed down to the Norwegian Opera House. Love to shoot here, as you can get some great angles and interesting light.

10 minute break

Oslo, 2016

Stooooop!

I had 10 minutes to kill before a meeting today, so I grabbed my camera and took a walk around the block. I passed this Do Not Enter sign at a construction site and thought that with a right subject passing by it would be a funny shoot. And in entered this woman with matching colors to the sign almost before I could react.

Keep smiling! 🙂

Airport Photowalk

Rushing Through
Gardermoen, 2016

One of my favorite places to shoot is at airport’s. It has something to do with the atmosphere and that I’m not sticking my self out that much walking with a camera. I get to pretend I’m just another tourist. 🙂

My absolute favorite time of day to shoot there is late evening, when the tempo is lower, people is fewer and shadows are longer.

Stupid Comfort Zone

Hello my Friend!
Hey my Friend!, Oslo 2016

Ahh…the comfort zone! How I hate you!

Yesterday I visited a one-day music and garden festival, a good place and chance to get some great captures, and practice on shooting events.
Camera in hand and ready to start, I had all this great ideas and pictures in my head. So I felt pretty confident.

When we entered I got a bit shaky, mouth started to feel dry and palms sweaty. My confidence level hit bottom. What had I gotten my self into?! I tried to get my head in the right place, but for the first couple of hours I didn’t have any fun. I walked around with my camera ready, took some shoots hear and dear…but I felt I didn’t get the pictures I wanted and had imagined. My own fear held me back. It got a little easier in the end, but it didn’t turn out quite like I had imagned.

So I have to keep training on breaking my own comfort zone and take fear head on.

In the end I’m one more experience richer and wiser.

My Look at Rome – The Streets

_MG_9336

I loved walking around the streets of Rome. Every where I looked I saw a picture. Beautiful architecture, famous buildings, well dressed people and crazy tourists. For the first half-hour we were out walking I was overloaded with all the impressions and didn’t managed to take even one picture. Just had to take it all in before my brain could think perfectly.

 

Hope you enjoyed some of my pictures, and that it will inspire you as much as Rome inspired me.

Keep smiling 🙂
