"Night in Vence" photo awarded 1st place



Digitalfotografering er en dejlig hobby. I "gamle dage" havde jeg 3 analoge spejlreflekskameraer af mærkerne Pentax og Olympus (drømte om et Nikon). Sidste sommer købte jeg et digitalt Nikon D70s og kastede mig atter over avanceret fotografering. Et af mine billeder har nu vundet en 1. plads i en fotokonkurrence på Nikonians.com, hvor temaet var "Nat". Præmien var et fotoredigeringsprogram. Fotoet går nu videre til finalen.

Digital photographing is a nice hobby. In the "old days" I owned analogue cameras from vendors like Pentax and Olympus (dreaming about a Nikon). Last summer I bought a Nikon D70s DSLR camera and started all over again. One of my photos has received an award, taking the 1st spot in a monthly photo competition at nikonians.com. The theme was "Night". I was rewarded with a nice photo editing software. The photo is now submitted to the final "Best Photo 2006".

  1. That's an awesome shot, congratulations!

    I've known you for, what, 15 years now? And I didn't have a clue you were even remotely interested in photography!

    Keep up the good work. You just inspired me to look out for photo contests - I've been taking pictures since I was 14, but haven't ever considered entering a contest.

    P.S. Looking to upgrade my M6 to the new M8, to accompany my DSLR.

  2. Thx for your kind encouragement.
    The Leica is a wonderful camera. Maybe I should buy it also, as it is always nice to have a high quality handy camera at hand - especially during travelling.
    The Leica must be considered the "Bang & Olufsen" of cameras.

    Kind regards

x-teams

I've just ordered a new book from Amazon. The name "x-teams" immediately caught my eye as I read about it in the Danish business newspaper - Børsen. The reviewer assigned 5 marks out of six, so expectations are high.
X-Teams written by Deborah Ancona and Henrik Bresman raises an interesting question already on the front cover.
"Why do teams fail?"
The topic of the book is how to build teams that lead, innovate, and succeed. I'll write a short review as soon as I've read it.

SnapScan 9000 - be prepared for a laugh

Can you guess who the nice young man is in the image? It is me as a high school student - important years - where my passion for photography really took off. My god - 35 years has passed since those happy years.

I have just scanned b/w negatives and color slides from these years, and it has been hilarious to see the pictures again. Since many of the images are not something to boast about, the mission was only to get the old negatives and slides converted to digital format. Since I have many pictures from my analog years this conversion process must also go quickly.

Therefore I have just tested JOBO Snapscan 9000. It took med just 5 minutes to unpack it and set up. The scanning process is extremely simple. You install an SD card in the scanner, and then feed negatives or slides into the scanner by the help of various rails and frames - one at a time. The scan process only takes 4 seconds per negative / slide. The scanner has some simple correction options such as built-in color corre…
