Phnom Penh Sunset

Phome Penh River Sunset

I hired a moped driver to take me to the other side of the Mekong River in Phnom Penh, to see if I could get a nice sunset over the the city.
Well I wasn’t to lucky with the weather – a bit to many clouds – so the view wasn’t as cool as I had hoped for, but I still got a decent photo out of it.

Me and my Dog


Quick snap made with the LUMIX G VARIO 45-200mm f4.0-5.6 lens. This was the very first trip where I used that lens, and it was sort of a tester to see what quality I could get from it.
And I must say, I’m really impressed on the quality and functionality of this lens.

This photo was made hand-held at 200mm, which equals 400mm in a full frame setting, and the details are quiet good. when you take the camera, lens and the fact it was hand-held in consideration.

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!
