Before anything else is said, I have to admit that I’m lagging slightly behind schedule on the sharing of my photos. This is in part to a very hectic schedule with private photoshoots, as well as other personal commitments. Winter also seems to be my least creative time of year when it comes to “personal photography”. I guess it could be based on the lack of daylight, and the lack of colors outside. Another important point could very well be that I simply despice everything winter: snow, cold and zub-zero temperatures.
For the most part, the periode from late autum to early spring is spent doing many commercial photo-projects and photo-shoots for hire. Each year seems to bring new and exciting assignements my way, the numbers increasing each year. Which is really, really good. It gives me a sense of achievement, and gratitude towards people for believeing in me.
The first image is actually not taken in 2015, but in July last year. The edit is however fresh as of 2015, and based on an idea I got from a good friend of mine, with my own twist. The motif is from on top edge of the Troll’s Wall (Trollveggen) in Romsdal, not far from Åndalsnes.
An image of the Solar Eclipse on March 20th 2015 which I found to having been executed just the way I had envisioned it beforehand. The image was taken handheld with Canon EOS5 D mark III, and my 70-200mm f.2.8L Mark II lens, with original Canon 2x Extender Mark II, and with a 32 ND-filter. ISO was kept at a modest and simple 50. Needless to say, I’m very thrilled with this image.
On March 26th 2015, this season’s second cruiseship came to Trondheim on her way from the north. While driving to work, I suddenly came around a turn, and there she was. Thankfully, I had my camera with me and a rest stop was just ahead. The ship now sailing as Black Watch was originally built as Royal Viking Line’s Royal Viking Star of Bergen. She have also sailed under a lot of other names, and amongst those names, also as the Westward.
