(Or, how to mix coffee and mobilephotography)
It is cold and rainy outside the window. Not at all ‘spring-like’ even though the calendar states April 17th.
The only way, for me, to counter a creeping winter mood would be a good cup of coffee. And then why not picture the process on my mobilephone, and put some pictures on my website?
A setup on the dining table. A mix of daylight and a spot, supported by a diffusescreen. A wooden tray, and most of the shots made handheld.
All pics processed in Snapseed.
Have a nice cup of coffee :o)

A walk at Stanghede inspired to produce som monochrome pictures with some dramatic clouds that was present today. And a single color picture trying to capture the fresh green moss on some of the trees.
All pictures are postprocessed with NIK-collection in Lightroom and Photoshop.

Easter Friday at the beach in Noerre Vorupoer. A lot of people have had the same urge to go to the sea on this holiday. The weather was a little cold, a little windy and mostly cloudy. Not the perfect day for black and white picturing. But anyways I tried my luck at some of the activities people were doing.
A mother, I guess, with her daugther – Look what I found…
A young boy trying his luck fishing…
A bunch of guys trying their luck with the waves…
The other day I went to Moesgaard Museum (MOMU) near Århus, Denmark.
The museum focuses on Danish ancient history, and there is to be found a mix of realistic museumfigures amongst bones and The Grauballe Man, the most exceptionally preserved bog body in the world.
Below here are som pictures from the visit.
Rest in peace…On display…

I recently wrote a post on flower portraits relating to mobilephotography. This time the perspective is in black and white/ monochrome. And the camera is a standalone. But the shootingsession is the same and so is the setup and lighting.

I am kind of fascinated by the whole thing about still-life photography. When thinking still-life in a photographic sense, one might picture a studio with a lot of lights and flashes, and a big camera on a tripod. Hmmm… A dream scenario I admit. But less is reality for me. My livingroom, a dinnertable, a couple of photolamp-stands, a couple of reading-lamps atached to the stands, a diffuser/reflector set, and various cardboard in black and white. Add to that a smartphone and a Gorilla tripod, and I am set to go.

Still-life experimenting with glass and mirror. Only lighting is diffuse backlight.
The shot above is taken with standalone camera. The shot beneath is taken with a smartphone.

This wooden rose, once bought in Austria, was put on a mirror to get the reflection beneath it. A diffuse backlight and light from the front right. The front light was in a slight above position. Continue reading “Wooden Rose”
Sometimes patterns just look like something from a fantasy, a dream, a movie or whatever. Some days ago i passed by a concrete wall and this grabbed my attention.
An alien. Marked in the concrete.
There is an ambient silence in the church. It reveals the life of light and shadows, so fascinating to any painter, photographer or in other way visual artist.
Monochrome seemed to be the best choice in order to depict what I saw today.
