Business Portraits for a Lawyer Firm



I love shooting portraits - both the kind where I have creative freedom and those where I have to stick to a certain look and feel. The two photos I will show here today belong to the latter category.

Both photos are for online usage - company website, Linkedin profile etc. They needed to radiate seriousness and professionalism.

The lighting set-up need to be simple and fast to mount. I was only given 1 hour to set-up, take the photos and dismantle, before they needed the meeting room. My lighting source was a single Elinchrom D-Lite 4 (400W) studio flash with an Elinchrom Portalite Square Soft Box (40 cm) controlled with the EL-Skyport Transmitter mounted in the hot shoe on my D800. Even though I only needed an upper body a head shot I chose to bounce the light into a nearby white wall to soften the light even more. The model was place so, that some natural window light lit them on their right side (left on the photo) and my single light source lit them on the left side. To separate the model from the back wall I used the Sigma 70-200mm f/2.8 lens as the room was long enough to give me the needed working space.

I really didn't have to do too much post editing and only made some lens correction, small exposure adjustment and cropping in Lightroom. Finally a Color Efex pro 4 was used to add some skin softening (female model) and fine contrast (male model).

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.

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…
