I was walking around Rovinj – a small town on the Istrian peninsula in Croatia – to find some interesting things to shoot. I came by this little sign on a nice looking street, as I stood there trying out different compositions, this man came out of the establishment – properly a bit drunk and on his way home to the misses – I quickly fired of a few shoots, and ended up with this one.

  • Aperture: ƒ/5.6
  • Camera: NIKON D70s
  • Taken: 27 July, 2006
  • Focal length: 22mm
  • ISO: 200
  • Shutter speed: 1/50s

When the Sun Says Good Night

On my way to work one day, I was crossing Knibbels bridge (a bridge in the middle of Copenhagen) at the same time as the sun was setting over the city, luckily I had my camera in my backpack.

I made a quick stop on the middle of the bridge, went over to the railing, where I sat down my camera to make 7 exposures for a HDR photo. But there where to many cars crossing the bridge, which made the bridge – and the camera – shake every time. So I decided to make some shoots hand-held instead.

I measured the light close to the sun – in spot mode of course – to get the right mood of the sunset. the photo is a stitch of 3 shoots with a 35mm lens. All post work is done in Photoshop and Lightroom.

I had just crossed the Texas state line, when I saw the first sign – I would later see a few more – that said “Drink, Drive and Go To Jail” and I thought to myself, this is a state that means business.

This photo was made a bit further into the state, this place was right beside the freeway, I spotted it just as I drove by, so I took the next freeway exit, and drove back on a smaller road, to get to this place.
I got out My tripod and starting shooting different angles as the sun was setting.

A HDR made from 7 RAW exposure, which I normally take when I shoot directly in to the sun – otherwise I use 5 – software used is Photomatrix, Photoshop, Lightroom and Topaz Adjust.

My last day in New York – but I will be back for more another time - unfortunately the last days here it has been snowing and there has mostly been grey skies, so this shoot is from My second day in NY, when the weather was very nice and almost spring like.

HDR made of 5 RAW exposures, hand held, cause this was a private area and I couldn’t use my tripod, what’s up with that I’m not allowed to use a tripod but it’s OK that I shoot handheld……….. I don’t get it.

I added a little Topaz Adjust magic before finalizing the photo.

Under the Bridge

This one is from Brooklyn, on My way back from the shore – where I made some shoots of the Manhattan Skyline, which I will post at a later date – I walk beneath this small bridge, on the other side of the road there was this door leading in to this brick wall, which I thought looked rather cool and it made me think, on what kind of things that could been behind it.

I’m having a great time in New York, I all ready got some many awesome shoots from the city, and I still got a few days left, I’m not gonna write that much, cause I wanna be out shooting instead. I will try to post a few more shoots from NY during the week.

Ok, this is the first shoot from New York – done with My brand new Olympys Pen E-PL2 – post is all done in Lightroom with a little twist from the Nik Color Efex Pro plug-in.

WW2 Memorial

Sorry for all the quick post at the moment, but I’m in New York City spending My time shoot a lot of new stuff. Hopefully I will get enough time to process one – or two – photos next week, and post them here at the blog.

This is My very first fisheye HDR, it’s made with 7 RAW exposures, and I used PhotoMatrix and Photoshop to put it all together.
