As I write this it is the day after the Scott Kelby Worldwide Photowalk and I haven't felt any urge to head out today to take pictures even though there was good light for parts of the day at least. For the entirety of the walk through the streets of Copenhagen yesterday it rained, rained and then it rained even more! I don't think I've ever had to pour water out of the front of a camera before, but there definitely was some in my old Canon 50mm lens after the walk was done!Read More
As has become tradition for me over the last couple of years I went to Copenhagen on March 17th to photograph the celebrations on St:Patrick's Day.
Unlike last year's celebrations it was pretty cold and rather rainy this year. That was okay though...at least it wasn't snowing!Read More
In a week's time I am once again heading to Copenhagen to be fake-Irish for a day. Yep...March 17th is St:Patrick's Day and it is time to enjoy the way that's celebrated in the Danish capital. I took a look through my archive of photos and it turns out I've been there four out of the last five years (I sat 2016 out due to just being through a bout of flu), so I've taken a lot of pictures of the celebrations!Read More
I had the privilege of visiting the Danish capital across the water two Saturdays in a row, so I got quite a few pictures, both during the Scott Kelby Worldwide Photowalk (which I've written about in an entry two weeks ago) as well as an outing there with my fellow board members of my photo club. So I'm sharing some street scenes from the latter trip today.Read More
Street photography is fun when you can land expressions on people's faces! In a crowded city like Copenhagen on a Saturday afternoon/evening it isn't always so easy. You tend to get a lot of shots where people "interfere" with your composition by sticking an arm, leg or a head into your frame, but that's all part of the experience. You'll get a lot of "duds" among your keepers, and that is nothing to be too upset about. It's easier to just shoot more and look for the expression instead. If Joe Public (or whatever the Danish equivalent might be called) ends up in half your frame...no biggie!Read More
Last weekend I took a stroll in Copenhagen with almost 40 other photographers during the Scott Kelby Worldwide Photowalk and it was a lot of fun. I got to try out night photography as well as practicing my language skills all while hanging out with fellow photographers!Read More
The weather has not been especially good for photography in the last week. Great for gardens and farmers in need of irrigation, but not so much for those of us with itchy photography fingers! And it is still pouring down as I write these words, so this week's post is from a day trip to Copenhagen from a few weekends ago.Read More
There’s a certain feeling of excitement when you shoot in a new place, and another when you go to a place you’ve been before. This weekend was a bit of both, since I’d only explored a part of the area the group of photographers from a local FB group heading out went to. I had a clue what to expect, but there was still quite a bit of new stuff to discover and explore.
We traveled across the Bridge (infamous for those who enjoy that crime show) to Örestad, a part of Copenhagen that’s slowly being built with lots of modern buildings and at least in some places innovative architecture. There’s an awful lot of glass, concrete and steel, and that’s not exactly my kind of thing, but I’d say it worked pretty well in several of the buildings. I’m no architecture expert in any way, but it was possible to see how the architects had intended the place to look.Read More
