Photography gives endless opportunities to present an idea, a message, or a story. To convey the purpose of an image in the best way, different styles and techniques are needed. Read more on my about page.
Last year I bought a drone, a Mavic Pro Platinium. The idea was to use it for video on our trips around Europe. Flying a drone is new to me, and I have a lot to learn. I discovered a couple of groups using their drones for landscape photography, and I decided to give it a try. I discovered that it’s possible to make really interesting compositions, and I will try to use my drone much more often. I guess that training will make me better flying the drone, and when I feel safe flying it I can start looking for more interesting locations and landscapes. Below is a testimage from today, nothing special maybe, but I had a lot of fun.
More to come 🙂
When I started kitesurfing, my wife Tone wanted to also have some kind of water activity. After watching me getting beaten up in the waves learning kiteboarding, she decided to go for something more “quiet”.
She went for SUP, Stand Up Paddleboard. SUP is a really great activity, it’s good exercise.
In addition to photography, kitesurfing is one of my biggest passions. My wife an I went to Tarifa Spain spring 2018, and I remember how fascinated i was when we went to the beach and saw all the kitesurfers out having fun in the waves and the strong wind.
My first Fuji was the X100s, and shortly after i got the X-Pro1 and the XF 35 f/1.4 lens. A fell in love with the image quality, but not so impressed with the slow focus, slow writing to the SD card etc. The camera felt like a dinosaur, but the images looked great! Several firmwares later, the speed is no longer a issue for me, I have learned to “use” the camera, and it has become the favourite of all my Fuji X cameras (I own 6 of them )
