I love to photograph at all times of the year, but there is a special time that I really enjoy photographing in and it is in the months when the night is really dark, where the streets are deserted, ie. mainly in the dark winter months. Having to look at one’s composition, on the basis of the economical light that is available, including assessing the available light sources and the way they should be included in the photograph itself. Alone in the dark Walking the streets after dark is not always logical and most often, almost always, it happens on its own. I really enjoy the lonely moments – there is a special calm over photography in the evening / night and at the same time it requires a lot of patience, as there is a certain kind of waiting time per. image due to the exposure time. The waiting time is most often used for reflection and at the same time a respite from everyday myriads of sounds and information. In the dark I am alone, most often quiet and one’s vision is limited in terms of impressions and environment! I like to seek out the areas in daylight […]
I, in collaboration with SponZ MTB club, have chosen to produce a short commercial for their association in order to draw attention to their activities and sports. So what’s special about it ?! A club like SponZ is in the same way as all other organizations, also affected by the COVID19 restrictions, even though they exclusively practice outdoor activities at high speed and naturally with a distance to each other. When asked if I wanted to help make a movie for them, I had no doubt about my answer as it was simply a fun and different task where the fight was going to be between the enthusiast and the restrictions! A one man setup In addition to the shooting happening outside of “normal” opening hours, it was a huge plus, for me – despite it being a one-man setup – that there was room to experiment along the way with techniques and methods. I can only recommend others to contribute and support their local associations, whether in your own interest or hobby. It makes a difference for the association life and not least all those involved, whether it be for the enthusiast, the member or the local people in […]
Last week I went to Denmark’s largest hospital, Rigshospitalet, as representative of the Capital Region, to produce press images for free use of all media. The task was definitely topical as COVID19 has hit us all either in the form of illness, social or work. The reason we produce both images and films is partly because the hopsital does not want an army of journalists around the house and produces their own material with the danger of accidentally infecting the staff and patients and partly to ensure work peace for the employees to perform their duties in the best possible way. I think it makes good sense and at the same time the press can start editing their content faster without having to spend time making similar images and stock footage. Reflection on what we do in everyday life When I finished the assignment, I couldn’t help but reflect on the assignment and not least the content of the pictures. This is probably best described as a work injury in most people when you begin to analyze one’s performance and not least the result of it, but that’s not how I look at it – I call it learning and […]
Why is there so little communication about the progress of construction sites … or asked in a slightly different way, what is the reason why the companies behind the construction industry do not take advantage of the opportunity to tell their story about the construction, about the process, about the opportunities this offers?! Claus Falkenberg Thomsen Being a storyteller requires that you can build a story in a communicatively exciting way that partly ensures that the viewer gets the right information at the right time and partly maintains the viewer in such a way that they choose to follow your universe. Constructing therefore covers both the construction itself, but equally the narrative – both are important! Who are we and what are we doing? To get an identity, we have to answer 2 basic questions: “Who are we?” and “What are we doing?” By starting from these questions, you can already begin to tell your story either in the form of pictures, text and video. The story can be advantageously told at the construction site (eg along fences, signs etc.) but even better digitally through your own SoMe channels. Do you want to develop the story – or simply follow […]
Standing alone in the dark, out in a swamp-like field, must be described as a bit over-enthusiastic and if you happened to pass by it, it would definitely be confirmed! ! Nevertheless, I had chosen this place as an ideal place to fly from in terms of photography itself and security. The goal was to capture the FIF ball court in the foreground, the center should be Frederiksborg Center and Royal Stage and the background should be Hillerød – in the head the composition of the picture was determined. The plan was relatively simple – fly up, photograph the object and land again … Unfortunately, this is a somewhat simplified version of what is actually happening. Photographing with a longer exposure while hanging in the air is also likely to mean blurring the image due to movements in the drone. The slightest wind or correction of the drone’s location can actually ruin the photograph – unfortunately this often happens, which is why it also requires more patience than that. However, the challenge with this image was slightly increased as the composition itself, as I imagined it, had to be adjusted while in the air. Suddenly, there was a parking space […]
A trip into the dark is always exciting and if you like the slightly longer exposures and other natural challenges, it is also fun at the same time – I think so at least. Patience is a virtue I must admit that I can quickly become restless when it comes to my own ideas … often it means that I become impatient and after a relatively short time, I can hardly control it anymore. I just have to do-the-thing-with-my-camera no matter what! So I decided to go on a night out and look at the area and the opportunities that are now available – call it a test shot, a bad excuse to get off or just a new idea that flourishes on the original… The advantage of going out to these locations before the planned shot is to learn more about the area, the possibilities and not least the challenges that can arise in my composition (trains moves which gives lighttrails, people on the platform moving around, light from alternative light sources, wind and weather etc.).
