My Very First Podcast


I started making podcast with my good friend and fellow photographer Henrik Wessmann, We are both members – Henrik is the chairman – of a newly founded photo group here in Copenhagen called “Momento“. The main focus of the podcast is what has and what will happen in Momento, but we will also get around other stuff as along as they are photo related.

In this first episode we are introducing ourselves and the talk focus mainly on Momento.

The podcast is in Danish, so a big apology to all my non Danish visitors and to all my Danish visitors give it a listen at let me know what you think in the comments below.

Here’s an old photo, it dates back to 1996, from a trip to Venice, Italy, it’s made with my very first SLR camera a Minolta XG-2,  it’s properly gonna be the oldest photo I’ll be post on the blog.
And in addition to that it’s also my very first stitched photo, although at the time the photo was made I didn’t know anything about panoramas – and even less about stitching – but I somehow happen to make two photos right “next” to each other, which made me able to stitch them together into a panorama.

After the stitch I then post process the photo in Lightroom and afterwards in OnOne Perfect Effects, where I among a few other adjustments added the texture.

Can you spot the gondola repair man?

A Very Long Engagement


This is by far the longest exposure I ever done, as you can see in the info below, the exposure was 428 seconds – that’s 7 minutes and 8 seconds – I used both of my ND filters, the lowest ISO you can on a Nikon D800 (50) and the highest f-stop (f22) to get this long exposure.

The photo was made on the south side of Iceland, you can see the famous Reynisdrangar cliffs in the distance.

NB: happy birthday Daddy!

Foggy Forest Creek


I spend a week in the Dolomites last year with some guys from the photo club I was a member of. We had some bad luck with the weather, I believe it rained all week or at least it felt like it did.
But then you have to adapt to the weather conditions, and this is one of the photos I made on one of the foggiest days we had.
