Golden Sponge - Day 2



Day 2 in my "Project 365" was exiting. I saw this sponge a couple of days ago and decided that it should star in one of my upcoming photographs. I found a piece of shale that I brought home from Norway many years ago and mounted the sponge upside down on the shale. As I also learning to use my SB-900 flash I tried both combining flash and ambient light and using flash only. I decided for the flash only light as it created more punch to the photo and it was easier to angle the light to create various shadows. After many variations I decided for a slight angled light beam coming straight above the sponge at a distance of 30 cm.

On the Nikon D300 I mounted the AF-S Micro Nikkor 60mm f/2.8G ED lens and used a tripod and a 2 second self timer delay. Exposure was 1/60 sec at f/25 to get a lot of sharpness (ISO 200). The SB-900 was controlled by using the built in flash as Commander. In Lightroom I used added the color treatment trying to create a contrast between the "cold" shale and the "warm" sponge.

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.

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

Leder & Kommunikation

I juli 2004, da jeg var nordisk direktør for Bang & Olufsen, skrev jeg et kapitel til bogen "Kommunikationens mange ansigter".  Efter et veloverstået strategiseminar i sidste uge med min ledergruppe hos Strålfors Information Logistics, hvor jeg er administrerende direktør, så kom jeg til at tænke på denne tekst og fik lyst til at bringe den her på min blog, da budskabet fortsat er af største betydning for at lykkes med en strategiimplementering.

Der er fire grundpiller i kommunikation: Det verbale, det kropslige, det aktionsorienterede og det usagte. Der er også fire arketyper af modtagere i en moderne virksomhed: Individet, gruppen, personalet og det ophøjede individ. Uanset kommunikationsform og modtager så husk direkte, tydelig og ærlig kommunikation.

Kravene til en leders kommunikationsevner på jobbet er øget betragteligt over de sidste 10 år. Og ”jobbet” er her ikke ment i en snæver betragtning, men mere præcist det kommunikationsunivers en leder opererer i under u…

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.
