Here’s a portrait of my grandfather. Shot using window light with a Canon 5D Mk II and a 100mm f/2 lens. I had Kristina hold the black side of a reflector behind him to get a clean background. I used an aperture of f/3.2 and shot really close to get this nice shallow depth of field, and bring the attention to his eyes.
I recently bought a new lens for my Canon 5D Mk II. It is the 100mm f/2.0, a wonderful portrait lens. I really like it so far. I chose between this one and the 85mm f/1.8. I think I could’ve gone with either one and be perfectly happy, but in the end I went for the 100mm.

Experimenting a lot, both with the shooting and lighting, as well as the post-processing. At the moment I am working hard on building up a decent portfolio. Here is a fashion inspired portrait of my lovely Kristina. She’s always there to help me out when I want to try […]

I’m quite happy with […]
Happy new year! 2013 is here, and I am back on the air. As you may have noticed I haven’t posted anything in a while. I’m not dead or anything, I just decided to take a few weeks off from posting. I’m excited to be back again.
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.
