Art on Display - Day 23


Another day where I'm testing an old lens. This time it is a ELICAR Automatic MC f=135mm 1:2.8 with serial number 800649 - Nikon F-mount. I can't find much information about this lens other that is was manufactured by Komine - a Japanese lens maker - and it should be extremely sharp. The build quality is very good and the lens comes with a built in lens hood.

My Nikon D300 with the lens was mounted on a tripod and the Nikon cable release MC-36 was connected to the D300. Again I used "Mirror Up" mode for optimal sharpness. To the right of the subject I placed a SB-900 with a 1/2 CTB (I just love this gel) and a narrow beam honeycomb from Honl Photo. The flash was fired with a PW's. In manual mode I chose a shutter of /125 sec and then played around with the aperture ring on the lens while gazing at the display for clippings. WB was set to Cloudy (warm in contrast to the blue gel) and ISO to 200. After some experimenting I dialed in -2/3 EV and hit the right exposure.

I must say I find this lens generates a very sharp photo and there is no vignetting at all. It could become a perfect portrait lens!

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…

Portrait of executive for LinkedIN and CV

Finn has some strong facial features that fits well to a high contrast b&w photo. I asked Finn to pose facing both with the left and right side tilting his face slightly to give him som options depending on where the photo need to be uploaded.



The we tried a more direct pose showing his strong hands and with less contrast.


If you live near Copenhagen give me a ping if you want a new set of portrait photos for your CV or LinkedIN.
