Simple is often both beautiful and powerful. When photographing flowers a little context can sometimes help, but it also distracts the attention. It this case I choose to deliberately underexpose the shots which made most of the grass background beneath the dandelion to become very dark. This made it very easy to use Lightroom and Nik Viveza 2 to darken what was left, so I could get a clean black background for this image.
This one is from my first meeting with a fox puppy. I was quite lucky to meet this little fellow on my second photography trip to Kullen in Sweden. I was actually there to do some landscape photography, but luckily I carried an 80-200mm lens with me, just in case I came across something interesting.
I had just arrived at Kullaberg and walked 5 minutes from the parking lot when I saw this fellow taking a little nap in the sun. Some other people coming from another direction scared the puppy away, but I spotted the small path it followed, so I could easily […]
A tractor waiting for the next time it will be used to assist in getting the boats in and out of the water at Vorupør beach in Thy, Denmark.
I think it looked really cool when it was back-lit by the rising sun, that illuminates the clouds. Often sunrise photos are better when you cannot actually see the sun. Somehow the light gets too intense and the magenta and orange hues of the morning […]
This boulder and several others are in the middle of a shallow lake at Glænø in the South-Western part of Zealand, Denmark. In order to get to Glænø ready for the blue hour, I had to get up at 4 AM. In the summer time, the blue hour begins very early.
I have been here before during daytime, and spotted these large stones, in the middle of the lake (approx. 70 meters to the shore in each direction). Nothing else to do than to remove the walking boots and slowly walk into the shallow water, to get to this […]
Before the invention of Kodachrome in 1936, the only medium that was available to the mass of photographers was black and white photography. With the invention of color printing one would think black and white photography would see it’s demise, but instead, it caused the medium to see a surge in popularity. Loved for its simplicity and raw attitude toward the photograph, learning the art of black and […]
What is it about black and white photography that is so amazing? And how can you create it?
In a world full of color, we often get attracted to the colors that ‘screams’ the most for attention or the colors that have the greatest visual mass in a photo. But in some photos, we want the viewers to look at something else like the textures, shapes, lines or connections between two subjects.
Just before the summer holiday, I went to Kalvebod Fælled just outside Copenhagen for an afternoon and evening of landscape photography. I got home with a lot of shots, by I totally missed this one as I went through them back home. It has just been sitting on my hard drive waiting for me to notice it.
The weather was quite good, but with just a little too many clouds. Half an hour later clouds covered the sun instead of the sun sinking into the horizon for that “perfect” landscape shot. Anyway, it sure is very quiet at Kalvebod Fælled, […]
Just outside Viborg, Denmark there is a hidden gem just behind Niels Bugge’s Inn. This is the beginning of the Troll’s Gorge. A small gorge with a small dirt path on the right side that stretches about one kilometer West before it ends in a moor like landscape. For a long time I have wanted to take photos of this place, but it has been several years since I last visited, except when the chance came up this summer.
I took this photo at my summer holiday in Klitmøller, in the North Western Jutland in Denmark. This is just outside the small coastal town, in an old military area, used for shooting practice. Now it is part of Thy National Park, which was the […]
