Vivi & Christian - Day 7


Saturday is a perfect day to play with photo equipment. Today I wanted to use my newly acquired Elichrome D-Lite it kit and my son Christian and wife Vivi was happy to pose as models.



Here is the basic set-up. I used a white wall as back drop and lit it with a 200w D-Lite it 2 (power 2.5). A 400w D-Lite it 4 (power 2.7) was mounted with a Elinchrom Minisoft 44 beauty dish with diffuser. On my D300 I mounted the ELS Transmitter ECO to remotely control the flash units. A Sekonic Flashmate L-308S was used to set the correct exposure data. I chose a shutter speed of 1/125 and the resulting aperture was f/14.

On the first test photo Vivi has holding a grey card and I used this to set the correct white balance and then sync all other photos with that WB setting in LR3.

My D300 was set to RAW at ISO 200 and mounted with AF Nikkor 50mm f/1.4D. The resulting file size was 13 MB and I cropped it slightly which reduced the size to 12 MB. The camera was hand held. In Lightroom I only added Clarity (+44) and sharpening. 

Using a digital light meter is a new experience for me, but I'm stunned by the result. No use to adjust exposure in LR3 at all!

Two more photos from the same shoot.

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

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.


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