Art & Architecture - Day 24


Another day with interesting meetings. While visiting central Copenhagen for a meeting I walked to the nearby Skuespilhus - (House of Acting) - an architectural master piece placed alongside the harbour front and just opposite the even more impressive Opera building. The sun was shining from a blue sky and the temperature was minus 1 degree C. Perfekt weather for photographing.

Shooting against the sun is often difficult, but by watching the histogram for highlight clippings and dialing in the right amount of EV I managed to get a decent photograph where it was only necessary to add some light to the shadow areas. Otherwise only sharpening has been applied.

Nikon D300 with AF 20mm f/2.8D. ISO 200.
Exposure: 1/800 af f/11 - 1/3 EV

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…
