Photographing Art - Day 37


My photo assignment today was a piece af art that I imaging should appear in an art catalogue. A white back drop was chosen so a shadow of the sculpture could be part of the final photograph.

I placed a SB-900 to the left of the camera pointing directly towards the sculture in an angle of 30 degrees. A SB-700 was positioned to the right of the camera pointing toward the sculpture in an angle of 60 degrees. A Heavy Frost gel was mounted on both SB's. To manage the flash output I used PW FlexTT5 on both SB's and PW MiniTT1 and PW AC3 on my Nikon D300.
The SB-900 was set to group A and the SB-700 to group B. With the stop-dials on the PW AC3 I controlled the flash output in steps of 1/3 stop until I was satisfied with the light distribution.
The Nikon D300 was in A-mode with an exposure of 1/60 sec at f/10. I used a Sigma 70-200mm f/2.8 zoom at 110mm.
In LR3 I used "Clarity" and "Tone Curve" to adjust the contrast and shadow areas. Saturation is -100 (B/W). Sharpening has been applied gently.

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.
