Fishing on a Muddy River

20120715_061939Today’s photo is from Battambang, Cambodia. But that’s not what this post is gonna be about.

Because I wanna tell you that a photo that I donated to The Parthenon, a museum in Nashville, Tennessee in USA, is up on the wall in the “Memory Fragments: The Art of Pre-Columbian West Mexico” exhibition, from now and for as long as the exhibition, which is until December 6. 2015.

Go here to find out more.

This is the photo I donated.

Here are some photos, from the exhibition.

A big thanks to Mark, for providing the photos.

Bringing Home the Goods

20120701_144955I stood on this spot for about an hour, trying to capture the people driving by. When panning in the same direction as your subject is moving, you can get the blurry background (aka motion blur), it takes a bit of practice – that’s why I spend an hour, on the same spot – but when you nail it, it’s pretty cool, if you ask me.

A good starting point is to set your camera on shutter priority, an the set the speed at around 1/125 of a second. Find a suitable focal distance, remember your are panning, and that brings the subject, at first closer to you and the further away. I would say that you should set the focal distance, so it fits your subject, when it’s right in front of you. and then just aim, pan and press the shutter, or in other words practice, practice and practice.

Oxholm Skoven

Øland SkovAs I wrote a week ago, I’m in Jutland at the moment, and hopefully I’ll get out and capture a bunch of awesome photos while I’m here.

This one is from my last visit up here, where I went out to one of my many favorite photography spots. “Oxholm Skoven” aka “Øland Skoven” (that’s “Oxholm Forest” and “Island Land Forest” for you non-Danish folks). Where you’ll find this little hill, and when the sun is right, you get the most amazing light and shadow display.

Cigarette Break

Walking & Texting

Bo47_233It’s been a while since I posted an analog photo. Here’s one I made on my trip to Austria with my girlfriend back in the summer of 2012. It’s made with a camera I bought on a flea market in Vienna, a Naikei 1000-x, it’s a 35mm plastic film camera.

You can see more photo’s made with that camera on my portfolio site, just click here
