Shooting Anna on location ...



I had three sessions with Anna in a week, that has to be a record for me. One at my place, and one at hers, and one on location as the weather was so good. And its exiting for me to shoot with my small camera flash, Vivitar 285hv and the Sigma 500 DG Super. Here are some images from that session.

More images of Anna E ...



Here are some more images from Annas session. These are more like portraits. Since then we have made two more sessions, one at her place, ( 50 squqre feet =) ) and one outside, in the sun with some small camera flash, that was exiting, but more on that later.

Anna E and I , in "New York"



Anna mentioned something about the beams, that the skyscraper workers sat on and ate lunch, at the 50th floor or something ( like THIS ). I then saw a scene where she was standing on said beam, a rusty one, at the 103rd floor in the sunset, with a nice evening gown, and some champagne or Martini, and some exclusive paint buckets, as if she were about to paint her penthouse from the outside.








A short video with some parts of the making, is included below. Im a real novice when it comes to video, but I consider this a step in the right direction, just that I did one. Its probably rather confusing.

"Shootout" with Anna E ......

Anna shot me as I shot her ( with my pink little Z80 ).

Today is the third day of retouching a session I had with Anna Ericsson this Sunday. Very nice to see her again, as she has been in the states for the last three years or so.

Below a layer mask for one of the new portraits of Anna. I should be done with this session this weekend I think.



Last time I shot Anna was in October 2006. Wow, time flies. Here are a couple of images from that first session.

Sometimes its fun to do a retouch on a photo you did not take yourself. So I tried to make something out of the image below. ( above is the result ).

Coffee with Max Schultz and a Flash ...



I went to town today to see if there was something worth to shoot, as it is May the 1st, which means a lot of demontrations all over the city. I did not find anything special to shoot so I went to have a coffee with Max Schultz, great guitar player ( www.maxschultz.com ). I had my Sigma 500 Super with me so I took some shots of him and his new guitar, a great looking piece with a Bigsby whammy bar.



JIve never done any videos from a shoot. I think I will start with that now that I found an online editor that was real simple to use, JayCut. Heres my first try just to test how to combine things, in a glorious 30 second video =).
