On June 22. and 23. this year, I was so lucky to be invited by the Norwegian Epilepsy Youth Organization (NEFU), to teach a workshop on cellphone photography during their summercamp at Skottevik Vacationcenter in Kristiansand in Norway. The great thing about only using a cellphone, is that you have no tech stuff or buttons getting in the way. It’s only you and the cellphone, and that give some pretty amazing pictures. Come on in and read on how things went at Skottevik.
Today, Fujifilm is releasing version 4.0 of the X-T1 firmware, and once again, they are trying to make Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny and the Toothfairy appear at the same time. And off season for two of them actually. Did Fujifilm manage to pull it off? Well read on and find out…
Wednesday this week, 11 eager participants came to Scandinavian Photo in Oslo, to join me on one of my Fujifilm Nordic workshops about environmental portraits. I don’t know what went through their minds when I started the whole thing by dragging them straight to a nearby beer joint…
Wohoo! I’ve got text and images for another chapter for my new how-to and inspirational book on photography under my belt. Last time I visited famous foodblogger Fru Timian, and you can read about that here. This time the theme was interiors and food, and I had a very nice time shooting and taking notes when interviewing Vibeke Alvestad Johansen that runs the very popular and high quality Interiorbazar. Check out her blog here, and her Instagram profile here for lots of great inspiration. And when my book is out, you can come behind the scenes and see how her pictures are created.
So far I have 3-4 others who wants to be presented in the book, and I’ll draw the limit at 10-15. If you know about someone you think should be in this book, please let me know! My criteria is bloggers and Instagrammers that produce good quality pictures, and who wants to share inspiration and tips about photography with others. It can be about anything really. Fashion, cakes, deserts, lifestyle, interiors, training etc. As long as they make good images.
Can’t wait to reveal more about this project, bit by bit!
It’s always nice when the week starts with some happy Fujifilm news, and today they officially launched two new products. First of all…
Fujifilm continues to please and surprise, and they do what no other camera manufacturers do: release new functionality for existing cameras through firmware updates. Where others hardly bothers to fix bugs, Fujifilm releases new and useful functions. For free! The last time was in December, and now at the end of June they will improve the X-T1 with a brand new and improved autofocus system. You can read more about the upgrade here.
And check out this video from Fujifilm that shows a little bit of what can be expected. In other words, prepare yourself for getting a brand new camera – free of charge! Wohoo!
