Underwater Me

Kristoffer Bjørn wielding the camera, my Katrine holding a submergable flash (inside a 2-litre bottle) and Krisoffer's Karo holding a flash to give overall light. Me suffering for the photo - being upside down in water is not fun. Out of 50 photos only a few came out with a smile.
The underwater portraits are a colaborative effort of both Kristoffer Bjørn and myself.

Underwater Kristoffer

this picture was part of a quite complicated creational process. It looks simple, but we pursuated my Katrine and Kristoffer's Karo to both hold a flash. One of those flashes was put into a 2-litre bottle and submerged just behind the camera. The infrared signal connecting the transmitter and the recievers worked perfectly because of the many bounce-oppotunities. Well done girls, and thanks for the help.

waterline motif

a simple motif - yes, but this would be otherwise impossible without getting your camera wet. The lake stinks of duck-fieces but it was worth it.

DIY submerging the thingy

my good friend and photographer Kristoffer Bjørn and his girl was on a visit, so what better thing to do than testing my newly created semi-submergable thingy. Kristoffer took these pictures as I slowly yet boldly pushed the thingy into the water.

It held tight, and still does, so it was a great success. Pictures will follow of what this can be used for.
And yes the thingy looks like shit, but if it does it's purpose and does it boldly, then I'm willing to accept that.

DIY submergable thingy

I made a semi-submergable casing for my Eos 40d. I have no remembrance of the total price for it all, but it sure wasn't as pebbery as the pro-submergable cabins.
Next step is to make a shape out of foam to keep the camera in place. But I think i'll test the thingy before finishing it off.

this is Sweden. Sweden is always like this - nice orange colors, beautiful hazy air, small dots flying around in the evening sun. No shopping has been done - this is actual appearance of the scene.

A Flimsy Horse

a horsy standing on a field. When one does not own an old camera which has the ability to take "bad" pictures, some shopping is needed. Alot of colorcorrection has been done, convertion to black and white made with the photoshop colormixer which has an infrared option and blurry edges, as you'll find with old apature.
