Dag 42 - En Rose



I dag fik jeg lyst til at fotografere noget smukt. Valget faldt på denne rose, som kommer fra en stor buket roser jeg købte til min dejlige hustru i sidste week-end. Roserne fik Vivi fordi hun altid er en kærlig og omsorgsfuld mor og en hustru der støtter op omkring mine vanvittige ambitioner - bl.a. spinning, som jeg nu går til 3 gange om ugen og hvor Vivi så hænger på de daglige rutiner efter arbejdsdagen.

Fotografisk var fotoet ikke så svært at tage. Rosen er placeret på et stykke hvidt papir og med mit makro objektive har jeg fotograferet i en let opadgående vinkel i forhold til rosen. En ekstern flash (SB-600) udløses direkte på rosen så lys intensiteten i rosen er god, små skygger omkring rosen fjernes og det omkringliggende område bliver mørkt.

I Photoshop er processen mere omfattende. Der er anvendt LAB-color for at tilføje skarphed i Lightness kanalen (gør, at det kun er de kontrastrige overgange der skærpes). Rosen er herefter markeret og det negative område (alt undtagen rosen) er tilføjet noget Motion Blur for at give indtryk af bevægelse samt blødgøre papirfladen og sløre baggrunden. Herefter er fotoet konverteret til mono og ved hjælp af Duo Tone har jeg valgt en sammensætning af 4 farver, der giver dette specielle monokrome look. Endelig er Noise Ninja anvendt for at tilføje et rigtigt lække blødt udtryk.

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.

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…
