Behind the scenes.

Did a small photojob the other day for the students on their preparations for an annual job-fair in Grythyttan. It was portrait photography. They created my own little photostudio for me… in the bathroom *grin*. Shot some behind the scenes photos of this event. Have been working late all week and gotten back from work around six or seven p.m so have been neglecting my spare time. I am editing some photos as we speak form this shot and soon of to the couch. Couch is my best friend after working late. Katarina And thanks for the fantastic flowers!

A photo-shoot with a friend- Child portraits

During my Christmas break I hanged with a friend and her child and shot some photos of them. It is so fun when someone agrees to be shot willingly! 😉 When trying you discover how hard it is to get the child happy. When the child is happy you have no focus and when you have focus, the child is crying. A challenge! What do you think about the result?

Portraits and a swamp.

Continuing learning portrait photography and especially taking my own, I headed out for a walk to find a spot today. I probably took me an hour to find one, you might think it isn´t that hard, but eventually after heading through a marshland of mud close to home I found myself in the center of some birches. And birches makes great photo background! After shooting probably 200 photos it got dark. In the heat of the moment when shifting space I dropped my self-timer and hade to run around like a crazy person to find it again. Eventually got some nice potential photos for my ongoing project as well, so it was a totally okay shoot. Now back home enjoying Sunday evening with some episodes of Reckless.

Behind the scenes

From this weekends shoot of self portraits. Some went well, some went less well. Here are the less wells..   Trying to get the self timer to work..   (not) fitting the frame..     Pushing the button to late.. Not getting the focus right.. Crazy looking .. Falling out of picture.. And weird pose with weird connotations.. Well, who said it was easy? Katarina   Canon 5D Mark iii Sigma 50 mm f 1.4 Art lens No editing

Selfportrait- the forest

Taking a self portrait is more difficult than you can imagine. I take mine with a self – timer, wireless. The timing is crucial. In this post I want to show some photos I took yesterday. Have been practicing different styles all weekend. Saturday I did the out of focus portraits and Sunday I tried getting full focus and perfect sharpness. I succeed in some and in some not so much. It is hard telling when you are out if you have gotten that perfect shot or not, it isn´t until later when home again your realize that 90% of all photos lack something like focus, sharpness or are to light or dark etc. But it is a challenge that I love. Enjoy my portraits from the forest of Grythyttan. Katarina     Canon 5D Mark iii Sigma 50 mm Art lens Ed in Lightroom
