On a mission from God

This summer (2014) there is an exhibition of local church artifacts at Uppsala Cathedral (himlenarhar.se), and my colleague Georg Lulich and I were lucky enough to be awarded the contract to take most of the photographs for the catalogue. This was a dream job that involved visiting 35 churches in the diocese and photographing the […]

The horse studio

A few years ago I came across a horse that was standing in a pool of light in front of a dark bush that was in shadow, and the high contrast led to an image of her eye that looked like it was taken in a studio. I really liked the result (as did Edviks […]

I took this pic a few days ago, and it reminded me why I love my fisheye lens : I used to think that fisheye lenses were just for fun special effects, and weren’t useful often enough to buy one, but last year I found a cheap used 10.5mm nikkor in the US, and bought […]
