Another shoot for Honda ATV

Photoshoot with Douglas Lindelow and Honda ATVs

Here are some photos of the Honda Rubicon that I had the opportunity to photograph a while back. Also togeather with the famous Douglas with his horses!

I was thinking about showing how my lighting techniques have an impact on my photos.
Here are three photos taken almost at the same time, with same exposure settings in the camera,  Canon 50 mm 1.4 @ 1.4  iso 125   1/2500

The first photo is with ambient light only. shooting into the sun.
Second photo is with a flash from the left and the last photo I added another light from the right. In total there are 3 light sources in the photo, The photos are unedited straight out of the camera.

 

A preview of the catalogs, the majority of the photos inside are mine.

Photowork at a restaurant in Grebbestad

I had the pleasure to take some photos for a really cool restaurant http://www.terrassenbar.com/  really nice guys, and awesome bartenders!! I will make sure to visit them again before the summer is over. I used a mix of natural light with a big transparent reflector for the food shots, and for others photos a mix of flashes with softboxes mainly just one light.

My favourite Black and White photos from the year

Black and White from 2014

I rarely decide before I shoot that the photo will be in black and white. When the colors are not the way I was hoping for, or if its a grey cloudy and rainy day is when I try and see what the photo looks like in black and white. Here are my selected photos from 2014 that I think turned out great in black and white. enjoy!
