Some location shots with Anna ...

The weather was so beautiful this spring day, my cheap china strobe begged me to go out and shoot. I called Anna Ericsson and luckily enough she was free and eager to shoot, se we met up at Långholmen and stopped at the first decent spot we found and started shooting. This was late in the afternoon. Here are some images of the shoot.

Image, image on the wall ...

I visited Susanna at her home for some images in a more natural environment. But I ended up using a flash to get the shadows, and then in with the images i a 3d app. So much for natural =)

First spring session, with Jonathan Fritzén ...

Wow, what a great weather. The spring is proceeding rapidly, and the temperature is quite bareable. I felt the urge to get out and do something with my flash. After a call to Jonathan Fritzén ( monster keyboardist. I built his ), we went out to a meadow here in Hokarangen, where I had noticed an old tree that is both standing and lying down, great look. So with a umbrealla, stand and my ultracheap plastic chinese strobe with batterypack, we started to take some images, for fun. I used a Sigma 10-20 and a Canob 50mm 1.4

I had to climb the tree to get some unusual angle.

Music Noir - a poster from my image ...

Yesterday I went to Berwaldhallen ( concert hall ) for the first time in 15 years ( Albert King was the reason for my previous visit ).

Henrik Frendin, with Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra was going to perform the new musical work, Music Noir, inspired from Film Noir music and stories from the fifties. The main character ( PI ) had the voice of Henriks custom built electro-acoustic viola grande, and the femme fatale was played by a/on a saw =) ( a similar sound to a Theremin ). It sure looked funny with a hundred people with "normal" instruments and one guy with a bow and saw.

The image above was used as a poster. The ones below are portraits ni a similar old style.

Tallee, first image shot outside this year

Click on image for very large version.

We were a bunch of people from a photographer/model forum that met for coffee a week ago. As Tallee joined us I thought I had to take a portrait of her. So before going home, we went to a park, and I opened up a transparent umbrella and my Sigma 500 Super and took some shots. She leaned over me so I could get the clouds as a background. Below is a bw version too.

Some more images of Hannes ...

I thought it would be fun to make a 40s style film reporter portrait of Hannes, shown above, and then some other experiments on him.t.

Some images of Hannes Råstam ...

Hannes Råstam is a rather well known reporter here in Sweden, ut he started out as a bass player. I first met him in 1986, when we both played with Rolf Wikström, a Swedish blues artist. We toured together for many years, al around Scandinavia. After many years he left the band to study to be a journalist.

I haven t seen him in many many years so it was a joy to suddenly find him on my doorstep. While talking about past and present, and serving lots of coffee and chocolates I was hoping to get some portraits of him. My apartement has one room, and the bluescreen was already up, so my intentions probably was quite clear =).

And we did a photo session. I am retouching some of them now. Here are three that are done so far. More coming later.
