Solo Tree - Day 120


I located this scene just 500 meters from where I live. I've passed this tree many time without noticing it. But as I'm studying b/w photography I'm training my eyes (and brain) to see in b/w. And as a result of this new ability, this scene presented it self visually.

With my Nikon D300 and a Sigma APO 70-200mm f/2.8 lens I composed this photo in camera so cropping in post processing was not needed. With the Dodge tool I darkened the foliage behind the tree. A 25% vignet was added.

Exposure: 1/80 sec at f/6.3, O EV, ISO 200
Focal length: 90mm / 135 mm

x-teams

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.

Three beautiful girls

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.

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.
