In the making of a cup of coffee

(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 cold Aprilday at the beach

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.

A young boy trying his luck fishing…

A bunch of guys trying their luck with the waves…

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…

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.
