Pros and cons with the winter

Every season has its beauty! Spring that brings a fresh start and colors. The warmth that summer gives i lovely. And then autumn with beautiful colors and finally winter that brings some light in the dark with the snow.

But that’s the best things with the season! The negative is allergy, to hot, to cold, too much snow or rain, or the lack of rain and so on…

We have some snow on the ground in Umeå and the temperature has dropped below -10C for a couple of days. But it takes time for my body to get used to the cold. But I love the beautiful light the snow and the short daylight gives.

Which season is your favorite?

Hey, it’s Friday again!

Hey, it’s Friday again! Time flies away and it feels like yesterday was Monday…

As you might have seen, I’ve started to write more about my everyday life. Previous I had an another blog were I wrote about training, food, wine and my everyday life. But it became too much to handle two sites if I want some continuity. So I decided to shut down one site and write more on cjr.se.

I don’t have a complete highschool diploma and this autumn I started studied again. It has been fun so far, but it difficult when it’s over 20 years since I was a student! Today I’m studying english and preparing for the final assignments on the class. And that one of the reasons I’ve started to write in english on this website. I know I need to practice! 🙂

The photo above is photographed with the new GoPro Hero 7 Black and edited in Lightroom.

But it’s Friday and the last time I looked outside a window it was snowing. I’m looking forward to a weekend with my family, Christmas Fair and maybe some training :). 


Photographing birds

I don’t do it as much as I want these days, but I love it! I’m talking about photographing birds. 🙂
It takes time and planning to get good photos. You’ll need to know were the birds when the light is the best. You could wander around and depend on luck. But my experience is that good planning and scouting is the key to good images!

You also need a long lens so you don’t disturb the birds. But a long lens also helps to get a cleaner shoot. It helps to have a fast camera with a fast and precise autofocus as well.

I have the gear but I don’t have the time now. But I have an archive full of photos to look at! And I have updated my portfolio with a couple of new photos!

I hope you having a wonderful day! 🙂


Thousands of candles

On Friday evening children had placed candles to highlight the International Children’s Day. The light was turned off in the park and it was very atmospheric.
I regret that I didn’t have my camera, I only had my iPhone. But I got a couple of good photos anyway.

A weekend in my hometown

I have visited my family in my hometown this weekend. Fathers day on Sunday and a photo shoot on Saturday.

On Saturday morning I trained at the local gym. I continued to work on my clean technique and I felt strong doing a 4×6 of back and front squats 🙂

The other reason I had to be back in Åsele was a family photo shoot. It’s both difficult and lot’s of fun to photograph children! The plan was to photograph both indoors and outside. But it was a gray and rainy day so we did most of the shooting indoors.
If I can get a little gear geeky I have to say that buying the Profoto B2 250 Air TTL to go kit was a really good investment! Earlier I carried a large and heavy bag on wheels, just for the flashes! Now I just have to carry two small bags. One with the flash, light modifier, a light stand and a small backpack for my camera and lenses.

I hope you had a great weekend!


Updated my portfolio

I have updated my portfolio with a new photo. I made the photo when we wore on a weeklong vacation in Crete earlier this year. I photographed the sunset and this photo and I took this photo right after the sun dispersed down the ocean. I remember it was calm and warm sunset. 

Today I long back to the warm air and the warm ocean! 🙂 It’s a grey and misty day in Umeå.
