Elmann shoot

I was hired to shoot some portraits and group photos for a recent merger between two law firms. The new company is call ELMANN.

One of the group photos included app. 20 staff in a small hallway. It was impossible to position my studio light, so I used two SB-910s and placed one in the window sill to the left and one on a small ledger to the left of the stairs from the main door. Both Speedlight heads was positioned straight up into the ceiling, but still shadows where cast on the white wall behind the group of people. It required some work in CS6 to reduce those shadows.

Here is the original photo that was used on the front of the invitation for the reception.



Here is a photo of the management team - both in suits and running clothing.



Last - but not least - I shot 5 portraits for the web site. Here is one example of partner Peter Mollerup.


I used a Nikon D800 with AF-S 24-70mm f/2.8 and AF-S 70-200mm f/2.8 (for the portraits) lenses. Elinchrom studie light was used for the portraits.

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…
