Please read through this, I’ll keep it short. I recently built a new website, where I’ve published a small portrait portfolio. Check it out at simwallphoto.com. I’m currently working on more images to put up. I also added a blog section to the new site, and the plan is to start blogging over there in the near future. So this will be the last post on The Lifestream, as I’ve decided to end this blog. If you’re interested in following my […]
As I’m going through all my old photos, I occasionally find some pictures that I want to work on again with a fresh eye. This is one of them. I shot this image in August of 2011 with the Fuji X100.

Right now I’m in the middle of organizing all my photos in Lightroom. Keywording, rating, labeling and stuff. Even deleting a lot of old photos.

Winter is here again. Snow and cold temperatures. Can’t say I like it, although it can be quite beautiful at times.
Lately I’ve been focusing a lot on shooting portraits and learning how to light. Experimenting, trying different stuff and learning as I go. I’m enjoying it! This picture is shot with a Canon 5D Mk II, 50/1.4 lens, and a Nikon SB-900 flash in a small softbox.
