Photos from Belfast

There’s not much to say about these photos. I experimented with some hdr water photos, some random night shots and street art. They were all shot in, or on the way to, Belfast.

The Titanic Afterparty

A photo gallery from the Titanic International Tattoo Convention after-party that was held at Cabaret Supper Club in Belfast.

Once again thanks to Mr. Carson & his family for arranging the convention and thanks for inviting me to the after-party. Much obliged.

Surprise, surprise! I got this message from the WordPress team today:

WordPress Anniversary - 5 Years
Let me also add, for those of you who don’t know, that I’ve had my tagline: «Encyclopedia Miscellaneous – ‘quality’ blogging since August 2011», since September 2011.

Both this after party and my WP anniversary is  definitely a rare event, nothing you’ll see every day.

The Changing Seasons: January 2016

Welcome to this challenge that’s called «The Changing Seasons 2016». As most of you already know, there are two versions to choose from this year; the original (V1) which is purely photographic and the new version (V2) where you can allow yourself to be more artistic and post a painting, a recipe, a digital manipulation, or simply just one photo that you think represents the month. Anyone with a blog can join this challenge and it’ll run throughout 2016.

Working with a model & a dog

Had a couple of photos on print today: they were in a pet-related advertising paper that was published with the national, Norwegian newspaper Dagbladet.

Last Sunday I met up with model Thea and her dog Kilo for a photo shoot downtown. Here’s the main photo:

Thea & Kilo

Thea & Kilo. Kilo is a mix between American Bulldog, Rottweiler, Staffordshire Bull Terrier and Sighthound.

To flash or not to flash?
I haven’t worked with dogs as models before, so this was the first time for me. Before leaving home I was afraid that a flash might scare the young dog – he’s only one year old – so I didn’t bring one. I could have needed a flash in the semi-poor lighting conditions downtown. I did bring a reflector though, but the artificial light wasn’t really strong enough to be reflected. Lesson learned? bring a flash next time.

Besides, Thea, the model and dog owner, assured me that Kilo wouldn’t be scared of the flash. Because of his young age Kilo was easily distracted and a flash would have helped to freeze the moment, eliminating blur.
I definitely learned a lot from this shoot.
