A Fisheye at the Fish Mall

Fisketorv Fiskeøje

Made this one a few days ago, when I was out with a newly found photographer friend, Jacob Surland (find his website here: caughtinpixels.com)

This is an HDR made with my Olympus E-M1, and the Samyang 7.5mm fisheye. Made from 5 RAW exposures.

NB: the name of this place is not Fish Mall, it’s Copenhagen Mall. But if you translate the original Danish name to English, you get “Fish Square”, and that’s why I gave the photo it’s title.

Market Street Light

2009.10.27_122733The light in this market street, in Marrakesh, Morocco. was so awesome, and I had a hard time leaving the place, but I had to because my friend was standing around waiting for me. That’s one of the benefits of traveling alone, you don’t have to hurry, when you find a good spot. Because no one is waiting for you.

Clouds Over Palm Trees

20120711_175808I was on my way back to the hotel, after a long day of shooting. When a storm was building up on the horizon. And that just made a long day of shooting a little bit longer.

This one was before it really started raining and lightning.

Old Faithfull Inn

Faithfull innToday I wanna show you what an effect adding textures to your photo can have, simply by showing you a before and after comparison of today’s photo.

The textures – and the warm color – brings back the extra feeling, I had when I made the photo. Of course it wasn’t what it looked like in real life, but that’s not the point here, the point is the feeling of the place.

Brazil Tower

Brazil TowerHave you seen the Terry Gilliam movie Brazil? – It’s one of my favorite movies –  do you remember the last scene, the ending? in the original version that is, not the the love conquers all US version.

Anyway, I saw this photo on G+ posted by the always great Brian Mathieson, and immediately thought that he had found the place where the ending of Brazil was made, I wrote to him asking where in the world this photo was made and if he knew if it was from Brazil, he got back to me with the location but he didn’t know if it was used in the movie.

The place is Satsop Nuclear Plant, in Washington State.

It was only a small detour from the route I had planned, so I took the chance and drove by the place. Here I meet Nate, who was kind enough to let me in to one of the cooling towers, and show me around. Thanks a lot Nate.

I also made this little video there, it’s mostly in Danish, but I think you’ll get the point anyway.

Here are a few more photos from the “dome”

Tree Stump Sunset

Crater Lake Stump SunsetMade this one at Crater Lake, USA.

Do you get that feeling of desperation, to find the perfect spot and then the perfect composition, just when the light form the setting sun is perfect? I do, a lot. But once it’s over – the sunset/sunrise – I’m always happy with what I got, and there is always one of the compositions that I really like.
And over time I’ve learned to accept that’s how I work, and I think it’s a good thing, the desperation keeps me on my toes.

With today’s photo, there where no desperation at all, I knew that I wanted to go to this tree stumb. I just didn’t know that the light would hit it so perfectly.

Man Walking Up the Stairs

20110625_224205Just finished my 15th podcast of “Nielsen & Wessmann”.

As always it’s in Danish, but this time my good friend Henrik Wessmann couldn’t join, but we got a hold on another photography friend of ours Rod Clemen.
