Copenhagen B&W

I’ve been living in this city for over 2 years now and I haven’t really taken a lot of pictures of it yet. That’s a shame and today I decided to change that. Unfortunately my battery surprisingly died after only a couple shots and the extra battery I had with me lasted only for a couple more. I didn’t use my camera much during the last couple weeks and after the last assignment I must have forgotten to charge all batteries up again. Well, lesson learned!

Luckily I still got a couple shots out of the trip. The area I went to is called ‘Fisketorvet’, close to the water that devides Copenhagen and is the reason for the beautiful bridges. The city built a relatively new bike bridge which I find really fascinating. I will try and get a lot of different shots of it soon!

Portrait in Hamburg, Germany

My good friend and fellow musician Felix Hoffmann called me up a couple weeks ago and booked me for a portrait session. Beside my residence of choice, Copenhagen, my 2nd most visited city is Hamburg, because that’s where my band Last Bird has its home base. I decided to go all natural and only bring my 5D II and a 50mm 1.8 lens. It was a cloudy afternoon, about an hour before sunset, so I didn’t need to worry too much about unpleasant sunlight or shadows. Here are my favorite shots. Check out the portrait gallery for more pictures of that session.

Amager Strand Sunrise

These images were taken during a sunrise walk on Amager Strand, Copenhagen last October. I used a quite long exposure time (over 1 minute) for the first picture, in order to bring out the subtle but beautiful colorization in the sky and ocean. The second picture was taken when the sun was already above the horizon (to camera right). 1/15 of a second shows enough movement in the water to create a little more dynamic. The last picture needed a horizontal ND-grad-filter (virtually applied in LR) to balance the huge dynamic difference in exposure that the, now stronger, sunlight created.
