    Hi Jorgen
    If you like drama how about this one
    This was quite a dramatic scene and I didn't want a three year old to get freaked out by what is going on. So I attempted to keep him happy and relaxed. Think I did, as you can see from his to camera shot. The other shot will probably do, although he doesn't look really alarmed.
    A mistake was to gave him a chocolate at one point in the shoot and it's amazing how it kicked in. In a nice way, he really is a cool little lad

    Jorgen the one thing that currently irritates me about your photos is the lighting as in warm sunlight, something I haven't experienced for a while. We are just starting to get hit by a really cold spell blowing in from Russia.
    I really envy your world location and like your pics as well, which look warm and happy.

    Oh, but we've just had an unusually long and cold winter here, with night temperatures down to 15 degrees C, even in Bangkok

    For people who are used to 30-40 degrees, and have no warm clothes whatsoever, that can actually be a big problem.

    There are a number of ways getting to the golf course. A third class train from Bangkok Noi to Hua Hin is one option. Cheap too, at around $2.50 for the three hour ride, and a zillion photo opportunities along the track. I have to get back there one day

    Jorgen and I don't live in the same part of the world, but we enjoy the same weather. When I visited Capture Integration the other day, there was quite a group fine looking young ladies making their way to the beach.

    Seeing the recent photos from the Moab workshop makes me realize I am long overdue for a trip to the area. In the meantime thought I would join in and post a few images from a couple of winters ago while passing through on my way to Big Bend NP. Hope you don't mind.

    Thanks Viablex. It took me almost all day. That was hole 17
    It will be used for the front page of a magazine, which was also the purpose of the composition.

    Rob,
    That last one is very nice. Love the transition from the warm foreground to the cold background.

    and your 17-50 Tamron rocks as well, seems to be a very nice lens
    I like the rendering, especially the rendering of the backlit oof background in the Refreshments shot
    nice pic

    Re: Fun Pictures with Nikon

    Thank you Bondo.

    I'm extremely impressed with that lens, bokeh, sharpness as well as colours. When I consider the price (it was just over $350 for a new one), it must be the best value I've had on any camera gear ever. I don't know if it's just my copy or the lens in general, but with a lens like that, any thoughts about buying a camera where it can't be fitted, have been shelved for the time being.

    Thanks Viablex. Much appreciated

    I went for a stroll downtown last night. The decorations from the Chinese New Year celebrations are still up. This one from Wad Yannawa in New Road. S5 with the Tamron @ 29mm and f/3.5. No editing whatsoever except resizing with "Sharper" option. The S5 and Tamron combo makes my life so easy

    Re: Fun Pictures with Nikon

    Jorgen, I really like the 12 waiting. And the consistent quality of the light in your images is uniquely "yours". A signature style that's very attractive. Lots of shooters hunt forever looking for a unique style, but yours seems to come naturally.

    Re: Fun Pictures with Nikon

    Thanks, both of you. I guess I do spend a lot of time "chasing the light". More probably than looking for motives. The motives usually appear sooner or later anyway, but if I'm in the wrong position in relation to the light, it's not as rewarding taking the photo.

    Oh thats too funny, sort of like... "had to walk to school in the snow and freezing rain barefoot everyday"

    Yes Jorgan out here in the western states there are quite a few ghost towns in varying conditions of course. These two are very well preserved relatively speaking. Mind you they are spread out all over the place given that our "backyard" is rather large out west.

    One of the interesting things about Bannack other than it being Montana's first territorial capitol was it still had residents up until 1973. Probably hard to appreciate this until you visit the place, but it blew my mind learning this.

    Thanks

    Ha ha... thanks.

    Maybe I should go to France to get the right "feel". Haven't been there in many years, so that would be a welcome change

    The first time I looked properly at his photos was actually in Denmark, an exhibition at Louisiana. A great inspiration and eye-opener then as well as now.

    Here's how to solve that problem

    - Get rid of any bag that is not a camera bag.
    - Don't have more camera bags than cameras.
    - Store at least one camera in each bag.

    Result: whenever you grab a bag to go somewhere, there's always a camera going with you


    PS. Don't forget to stash a clean shirt in the bag before you go. That's what the laptop pocket is for. An average laptop pocket actually holds three-four ironed shirts. That's enough for a weekend (or a week if there are no women around )

    I did the mistake of taking more than 1,000 photos at an amateur golf tournament. Now, I have to edit them all. It will take months

    If I'm not around in a week, it's because I forgot to eat...

    Price of success, Jorgen.

    When I shot the Nutcracker, I took close to 3,500 shots and pared it down to about 450. Took me about three days to get it all sorted out and uploaded. I just covered a Valentine's Party and fired off about 400 there, pared down to 200.

    Price of saying yes to too many people who all think that one of the others will pay the photographer

    Silly question, Jorgen: Is this like a golfing team? Why is everyone wearing the same shirt?

    It's the sponsor shirts. The photos are from an annual tournament for Scandinavians in Southeast Asia, sponsored by Scandinavian Airlines and Svenska Enskilda Banken.

    Even the caddies have sponsor vests, similar to the technical ground crew of Scandinavian Airlines. We had a lot of interesting challenges getting those right, and in 35 degrees Celsius, they are not the caddies' favourite clothing
