Kalmar GP

Fotograferar ett cykellopp för första gången. Kul, men svårt om bilden både ska vara snygg och innehålla lite dynamik.
Shooting a bike race for the first time. Fun but difficult to capture the drama. Click on picture for a large version.

Dance

Often, when you as a photographer raise your camera, the picture already exists in your imagination. You know what you are trying to express. Your task is to make the camera and lens, you tools, work in the desired direction creating the picture that, in some way, already exists. Click on picture for a larger version.

Rapid 3

Someting completely different. The Ra 987, Rapid 3, built in 1961, 10 minutes after leaving Kalmar Central Station at 17:47 on April 28th 2018. The Ra-type was ordered by Statens Järnvägar, Sweden, in 1952. The design is clearly inspired by the GM EMD F an E types intended to show the high speed capability of the Ra.
Today the engine is owned by Nässjö Järnvägsmuseum. Click on picture for a larger version.

JAS 39C Gripen

JAS 39C Gripen at the F 7 Wing in Såtenäs, Sweden. Click on picture for a larger version. I have published this portrait of the Gripen before but this version was edited in Capture One wich, in my opinion, generates a highly improved image.
My intention was to show the maneuverability of the aircraft rather than create a detailed portrait. I have other more detailed portraits of the JAS 39C Gripen.

Cajsa – March 2018

Cajsa. Winter seems to be almost over and we are working in studio testing lighting and dresses for an upcoming project this summer. Main flash – Godox AD600 with a beauty dish – up right and a second flash – SB910 – behind Cajsa for separation. Both radio controlled in TTL-mode from camera. Click on picture for a larger version.

Nikon D810 with AF Nikkor 85 mm f/1.4 G.
The setting is in a long corridor in the basement lit by fluoroscent tubes. White balance set to incandescent and the exposure manually set to EV -0.7. A speedlight – SB 910 – with a cto-gel pointing into the white wall to the left and in front of Åsa and Ella (the dog) in order to get a large reflecting area. Flash radio controlled from the camera.
The RAW-file was developed in Capture One with some minor adjustments. Mainly the white balance. I also added a rather strong vignetting to emphasize the main subject.

Departure

Departure. Gently leaving the platfom, the train slowly accelerates following its path through the switches until it reaches the main line leaving the ligts of the city behind. Click on picture for a larger version.
