Don't shoot me

May 17, 2016

50mm, 1/2500, f/1.4, ISO 200. Shot on a full-frame camera.

Hello,

This post is about distorting reality with your camera :) The subject of the picture is a statue on the Avenyn, in central Gothenburg. The statue shows a revolver with a knotted barrel. It's a replica of the "Non-Violence" statue in New York. Apparently, there are 17 replicas around the world.

The statue is a clear statement against violence. However, by framing it very tight, the knotted barrel has disappeared and it looks like the gun is pointing straight at the viewer. And they say a picture is worth a thousand words ;) 

That's it for now...



Party animals

50mm, 1/120, f/2, ISO 3200. Shot on a full-frame camera.

Hello !

I went to a wedding party in Germany this weekend. And I found some interesting "party animals". Quite literally :-) I have to thank a dear friend (Sven) for posing long enough for me to nail the focus and exposure... it took quite a few tries.

That's it for now...



Harnessing the winds

May 7, 2016

35mm, 1/250, f/8, ISO 800. Shot on a full-frame camera on a tripod.

Hello !

Often I hear the opinion that wind turbines spoil the landscape. I actually find them quite interesting and not so intrusive at all. This picture tries to prove the point by showing a German landscape that is dotted with wind turbines. I think it looks great.

That's it for now...



The beauty to come

May 6, 2016

85mm, 1/200, f/8, ISO 2500. Shot on a full-frame camera and a +4 close-up filter.

Hello !

The botanic garden of Gothenburg is a fantastic place that has always something to offer to photographers. This time I experimented with my new close-up filter, which is a magnifying glass you put in front of your lens to make things bigger. A cheap way to do macro photography without buying a new lens ;) This is the shot I like the most from the day.

That's it for now...
