I have added a new portfolio with landscape photos. Check it out – https://www.cjr.se/portfolio/portfolio-landscapes/
What a week!
I could never imagined that the images of the female bear with three cubs could get so much attention. Four swedish newspapers published the images and I have also received some calls from foreign newspapers.
That’s the reward for all the time I put into photography.
In my mind it is the photographer who makes the images, not the camera. But I’m impressed by what the Nikon D3 can do. The lens I used, AF-I 400/2,8 weighs around 6 kilograms and I had to set the ISO to 2500 to get fast shutter speed and a sharp image.
There is some noise in the image but it’s not so bad.
Check out the video from the evning when we meet the bear family. Stefan Silverhall made the video.
Better late then never….
Usually I try to select one image for “image of the month”. I experienced two seasons, therefore two images.
I spent a week in the mountains. Sunny and warm days and cold nights. The image above is made in Grantonsskalet, Vilhelmina. To the left Grönfjäll (1376 m). It was a cold and windy sunset.
In Åsele the snow had melted and the birds starting to arrive from the south.
I used Nikon D3, 24 / 3.5 tilt & shift, 400 / 2.8.
The photograph was taken about a week before christmas in 2007. Stefan wanted a framed picture of him self together with his dog, Iza. Usually I feel uncomfortable to photograph people, especially strangers. Stefan and I have been friends a long time so it was no problem.
The image is one of my favorites and it’s looks best mounted and framed.
I met a fox in the middle of October 2007 at Åsele golf course. The sun had disappeared and the mist danced across the grass.
I sat on my bike and was on my way home when I noticed the fox in the distance. The light was pretty good at that time. I lured him, and after half hour or so the fox where just a few feet away from me. It may have been 10 minutes or 1 hour, I became totally immersed in the fox.
Autofocus was out of the question in the darkness. At ISO 2000 I got 1/2s, f2,8. I also used the built-in flash at -2 EV. I did not get any sharp images with 1/2s and a playful fox. But I think the result was successful.
At ISO 2000 you get a lot of noise from the Nikon D200. In Photoshop I did some dogding & burning and adjusted the curves and contrast.
Det har tagit tid men nu är cjr.se igång igen. Jag har slagit ihop bloggen och cjr.se. För den som är intresserad så använder jag wordpress som driver hela sidan. Bekvämt och enkelt!
Månadens bild är tillbaka, men nu lite annorlunda. Bilden behöver inte vara gjort nyligt utan det kan vara en bild som är 1 år gammal eller 1 vecka gammal. Månadens bild kommer att fortsätta vara en nyligt gjord bild. Gamla bilder kommer att presenteras under rubriken “ur arkivet”.
I galleriet finns det även några nya bilder.
