Learning about multi exposure pictures.

This weekend turned in to a weekend filled with practise and trying out new things with my camera. Actually it was a Nikon and a Canon camera getting a hefty workout with multi exposure, low key pictures, dynamic range extender and back- button focus. Inspirational and a lot of fun. I just hate being in front of the camera but this weekend I just had to play along.

Katrin

My pretty friend and one of her favorites in her green garden, the artichoke and it’s beautiful leaves. My friend has green fingers so I thought it was a good idea to get a picture of something from her garden.

Then I saw a picture of her beautiful mother and I just had to try and see what I could do. I have always thought that they look so much alike.

Then Katrin got some pictures of me…….

If you got some inspiration and want to try it out for yourself then these pictures where multi exposure ones. Go out there and try it out !

 

Pop art anyone ?

playing around with apps and pictures can be a lot of fun….this is what I did today just because …..

Sandhammaren , a preserve on the south coast of Sweden.

Today I went to Sandhammaren to test some things with my camera. So different around here in the wintertime. A lot less beach but more sea. No people ! Regardless of what time of the year it’s a  favorite place of mine. Love to go for  walks on the endless beach. Today I went to work with my camera. Testing a filter.

refreshed and freezing cold  I left this special place curious of how my pictures would turn out. What do you think?

Supersuper moon visited us tonight.

The sky was filled with dark clouds and I could not see the moon until all of a sudden…. I grabbed my camera and ran down to the shore and got there just in time for it to disappear behind some massive clouds again !  Im not the one who gives up so I waited and waited, freezing my fingers off for around 20 minutes  but then it showed up from behind the dark clouds. it really was a supersuper moon. Wonder if I will get some sleep at all tonight..maybe I will be out howling?

tonight was good practice since it’s not easy to catch the moon.

First morning of 2018

Today the first of Jan 2018 started out along the shore together with my dear friend Katrin. Almost no wind and a couple of degrees celsius.
