One fourth of the year is over and I have another 31 images to write a blog post about…my March “harvest”. It’s been an interesting month photography wise, because at long last it looks like the snotfest we call winter is finally over and we’re on the way towards better light, which is pretty crucial for photography…at least if you want to take anything more than “moody” gray photos (nothing wrong with those though if that’s what you’re after).Read More
So...it’s now February 2018 and that means I am officially done with the first month of this year’s 365 project and it also means that it is time to look back at the 31 images I uploaded during that month. Just like I did during my 2016 365 Project I’ll pick 5 or 6 images and write a bit about each so there's a little bit more "meat" than just the hashtags I've put on each on my posts to Instagram.Read More
2018 is just shy of three weeks old as I write this on January 20 and if you happen to follow me on Instagram (instagram.com/tomasnilssonfoto), Twitter (twitter.com/tomnilsson) or Facebook (facebook.com/TomasPhotos) you may have noticed that there has been a few daily Instagram photo postings from me under the #instagram365 hashtag since January 1.Read More
For the first time since September I've actually added a few images to my "Old World" project that I was so busy with before having them on display at this year's Culture Fest in Staffanstorp in September. There were a few "leftover" shots from the visit to the Katrinetorp Christmas Market and the park next door that I covered in last week's blog post, that I figured I'd give the Old World treatment in Analog Efex Pro and Silver Efex Pro.Read More
This week's images are all from the Torup Castle park, about 11 km (or 7 miles for the metrically challenged) from my home. It was a beautiful summer day with lots of sunshine, so of course I've only picked the moodiest of black and white shots taken while the sun was obscured by clouds. Makes sense doesn't it?Read More
A few days ago I listened to an episode of one of my favorite podcasts, The Candid Frame, hosted by Ibarionex Perello where he had the photographer Mick Victor as a guest. They talked about his project of photographing graffiti, tags and other decorations and markings on walls close enough to make them more abstracts, and therefore more "arty". I thought that sounded so utterly removed from the street photography that I often do that I just had to give it a go!Read More
There’s been very little new photography for me in the last week or so for a few reasons, one being I’ve been busy with photo club stuff (our big international exhibition was shown last weekend and I was the whirling dervish of tech for that, which gave me very little time for photography). I pretty much only had time to snap the panorama photo shown above.
Also my best photo buddy, a.k.a. my dad, is temporarily incapacitated with a bad knee which makes it impossible for him to tag along on photo walks and expeditions. That has put a serious damper on my urges to go out shooting for a bit. Hopefully some time with a physiotherapist will help that though, so that he can come with me again on our little adventures.
I have snapped a few shots here and there though with my soon-to-be-replaced HTC One M7 and played around with them in Snapseed 2.0 when I’ve not bothered to take my big DSLR with me. (I know...there are times that I do that sort of thing...leave home with no camera except for the one in the cell phone...that’s probably a major no-no for a photography inclined person…). My cellphone camera isn't very good in low light, but given the right conditions it can take a half decent snapshot...which then can be improved with some post-processing.
