Photo Session with Magda

Here’s the first shot I’ll share with you of Magda. I’ll share some more when I have processed them, but I have a lot of photos to process and not so much time… Magda is an amazing model to work with. She’s professional and she has a magic sparkle in her eyes. You can check…

I’m working on some new portrait projects this weekend. Here’s a self-portrait/composite image that I made on Thursday. Five Photos / Five Stories – Black & White Challenge: This is a long exposure combined with the teeth from a skull that I photographed at a museum, plus some random this & that effects. I’m probably offline when…

Portraits of Monika & Pamela

Model photography is on my schedule this coming weekend and I’m really looking forward to try out the new cameras in a different setting than usual. I thought I’d share a few model photos with you. These were shot with my ‘old camera’ two years ago. If your boss/management is retarded, one of these shots…

Avant-garde, sci-fi scene.

On the way avant-garde appeared

I was on the way home after a long day of continuous shooting downtown, taking photos for my monthly photo challenge with a new camera that I had to learn, when I came across Nina and her friend. They were filming for an art project they had at Strykejernet (an art school in Oslo). Unfortunately…

Gunn from Trondheim.

Street Portraits of Gunn

Gunn had some awesome tattoos, so I asked her if I could shoot some photos of her and post them in my blog. She obvisouly agreed. Gunn is from a Norwegian city called Trondheim and if I remember correctly, she got her ink at Purple Pain Tattoo. I believe that she also mentioned Flaming Heart…

A Portrait of Tore

Five photos / five stories black and white challenge: This is a portrait of my friend Tore Kierulf Næss. I can’t remember exactly when I took this photo, but if I say that it was shot sometime between 2004-2009, I’m pretty sure that I’ve nailed it time-wise. Tore Næss was an art critic for the Norwegian…

Version 2 of Night photography of a statue in the rainy streets of Horta.

The Nights Watch

One night while I was exploring the streets of Horta, I came across this statue and took 3 bracketed shots with my Canon EOS600D (EF50mm f/1.8 II lens) at f/1.8, ISO 100. Now, three years later, I finally sat down and processed the images. It took me a while, but I like the results so…

Monthly Photo Challenge: The Changing Seasons 05

For my monthly photo challenge «The Changing Seasons» this month, I experimented with the shooting technique. These shots were taken after having 5 or 6 beers with a friend. After the beers I got on my bicycle to ride home and decided to take photos on the way, so around half of these were actually…

«Runner in the City»

Tobias wrote a guest post in Paula’s blog on ‘Perspective and Anti-Perspective’ and in the post he briefly mentioned Avant-Garde, which made me remember an article that I read about Avant-Garde photography in the Soviet Union. Instead of creating a perspective/anti-perspective post, I ended up on this weird, geeky, nerdy trail that led me to…
