Sun rise – Maspalomas 2017
Yesterday morning I watched the sun rise from the Dunes of Maspalomas and walked around in the sand dunes looking for compositions. The color photos are taken with the ClassicChrome film simulation and the B/W are with Monochrome+G film simulation, all photos taken with the Fuji X100T.

#2017-03 Misplaced

X-T1 18-55 mm @ 50mm | f5.6 | 1/60 sec | ISO 500

The topic for my third assignment came about as March went on, when on my walks around where I live I started to notice there where a lot of human elements/things “misplaced” in nature.

Now that we are heading in to April the sun is back, and hopefully it will start to get a little warmer to so the topic for next part will be Street photography.

Keep smiling. 🙂

Long Exposure #2

X-T1 18-55mm @ 18mm | f7.1 | 20 sec | ISO 200

Had another take on long exposure, this time with more sense of motion in the frame.

Although these have a more fast paced feel in them, I still get the same feeling of calm and peace when out shooting long exposures. It feels like you are standing still in the number of seconds that the shutter is open and the rest of the world are flying right by.

There is something therapeutic about long exposure photography. One has to calm down and take the time back. For me this really helps me to stress down, and escape from the fast paced world of every day life and work, getting rid of all worries and just live in the moment.

When I do this I start to connect with my inner thoughts and my self. Removing the outer shell that’s trying to block away the fast paced world.

What is your favorite way of escaping from the fast paced world, and connect with your inner thoughts?

Thursday Photowalk 

Step Down, Oslo 2016

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


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.
