Casa Galeazzo

For many years Vivi and I have been searching for a home in Italy. Our search has come to an end. In Piemonte, close to Aqui Terme, we have just bought this beautiful house. It has a fabulous history going back long before WW2. But it received its name from Gian Galeazzo Ciano, Count of Cortellazzo and Buccari (March 18, 1903 – January 11, 1944), Italian Minister of Foreign Affairs and Benito Mussolini's son-in-law, who used the house in certain periods during WW2. There is a rumor that the house also served as a regional HQ for the Italian resistance.
You can read more about Count Galeazzo here.
I have enclosed two pictures showing the ruins of the original house and how it looks today.

I'll try to dig more into the past history of this house, but I have to learn to speak Italian first :-)

Architectural Cubism - Day 106

A new office building in the northern part of Copenhagen. I'm getting more into architectural photography and with CS6 it is easy to correct "falling lines" perspective errors. The outer walls are forming a moire pattern when photographed. Imaging how this would look if I used a Nikon D800E instead of my old Nikon D300 :-)

Equipment: Nikon D300 with AF Nikkor 20mm f/2.8.
Exposure: 1/1000 sec at f/7.1, 0EV, ISO 200

Mia Blichfeldt

Sometimes you get lucky. I shot this natural portrait of Mia Blichfeldt - a very gifted and up-coming badminton player at a private party - just a month before she became the youngest Danish Champion in Badminton in the senior league - and she is only 16!

Of course you can find many photos of Mia "in action", but only very few where she is being just herself - outside the badminton arena.

Portrait of executive for LinkedIN and CV

Finn has some strong facial features that fits well to a high contrast b&w photo. I asked Finn to pose facing both with the left and right side tilting his face slightly to give him som options depending on where the photo need to be uploaded.

The we tried a more direct pose showing his strong hands and with less contrast.

If you live near Copenhagen give me a ping if you want a new set of portrait photos for your CV or LinkedIN.
