Karina Iversen - Day 76

Another portrait assignment was on the agenda today.

A profile photo for various social networks shouldn't just be a snapshot done with an mobile camera, but a portrait that encapsulates a person's personality. My friend Karina Iversen asked me if we could make a personal and strong portrait photo for her LinkedIn profile.

Karina thinks a professional profile photo is important - and it is! When we all visit a LinkedIn, Facebook, Google+ or Twitter page of a person, we look at the profile photo to get a first impression. If we like what we see then we definitely look for more information about this person. If the profile photo fails to make an impression, then we might move on without looking at the persons wall, stream, tweets or what ever it is called.

For a photoshoot like this I normally end up with 200 photos from which the client can choose 5-10 for further processing. Now Karina hasn't had a chance to select her 5-10 photos yet, but I took the liberty to select one my self that I think encapsulates Karina's personality. Let us hope she likes it :-)

By the way - the price for a photo session that will give you 5-10 profile photos in color, black & white or both delivered as digital files, is 500 DKK + VAT.

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…
