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!

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.

Low key product shots

As photographers we are bound to love light and its way of unfolding onto objects. There is hard light, soft light and all kinds in between, color temperature, highlight and shadows… and we can make use of all of them, when taking a photograph. Light has the power to make an object (or person) look very aesthetic and interesting. Unfortunately, it can make things look unappealing and ugly, too.

Norwegian Sunrise – The story behind the photo

Over New Years 2009/2010, I went on a trip to Norway with some friends. We stayed in a remote area near Nissedal and everything around our little cabins looked beautiful. There was a big lake right next to the street, snowy mountains in every direction and tons of snow. I knew that, with good light, this would be an amazing place to take pictures.
