Picture of the week - a tree

No comments
For a long time I wanted to take the picture of tree branches against a dark sky. On our Easter trip I finally found a tree standing by its lonesome, sunilight hitting its branches. I used a red filter and thanks to the low sun got a nice gradient effect.

Unedited picture:


Picture after cleaning the background, emphazising contrast and adding a soft light layer with a white to black gradient to enhance the effect.


Same tree taken with a wide lens, large aperture, my favourite setting:



Picture of the week - First day of summer

Yesterday was the first day of summer. Here are some pictures from our garden. Soon we will be able to have our first BBQ!





Ansel Adams inspired pictures of Borgarfjörður on Good Friday

No comments




This Good Friday we went for an "outing" (as my ex-flatmate calls it). The weather was actually really sunny, but I had just seen a documentary on Ansel Adams, so instead of cheery and sunny I went for dramatic and black and white. Both pictures were taken with a wide lens (23mm), aperture of f8 (as large a depth of field I could get in this light from a moving car) with a red filter and increased contrast.



Picture of the Week - Sólfar

Solfár (Sun Voyager) on Sæbraut in bad weather.



I have a new camera lens, which can have a larger aperture and wider lens than my old one. Both are shot at f2.8 - 3.5 at 50mm lens and 17mm lens with a red filter (to get the dramatic sky).


Picture of the week - Jokers

No comments
I used to collect jokers. I brought them with me when I came back to Iceland after Christmas, hung them up and got arty with my camera and a candle.



Exposure time 15 sec. I bought myself a tripod in Germany, which was very useful.
