Soft Light - Day 12

Many phone calls, sms's, email's and FB messages today after my exit from Strålfors has become public. I'm especially happy that many of my colleagues has shown their sympathy towards my situation.

My mood has been switching between high and low during the day - resulting in a headache. So the photo of the day is nothing special - not that my wife isn't a special person - from a photographic point of view. I took one Elinchrom D-Lite 4, set it to power 5.0 and mounted a white umbrella diffuser. In manual mode I chose a shutter speed of 1/125 and the light meter told me to use f/22 (at ISO 200). I'm satisfied with the soft spread of the light and the soft shadow behind Vivi. In LR3 I just added +30 clarity and some sharpening.

Let's see what tomorrow will bring.

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.

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.

Family portrait for mother-father and grand parents. Shot at my home studio in Hørsholm. Give me a call or an email if you need a portrait done - either for personal use or as a gift.
