Beauty Dish Exercise - Day 9


Now here is a man who need serious help from a beauty dish :-) In the need of a model (normally my daughter - but she is with her boyfriend - not to be disturbed) I had to step in myself. 

Setting the camera on a 10 second timer allowed me to jump into place before the shot. Again I'm using a white wall in my home as a back drop. A rim light (Elinchrom D-Lite it 2 (power 1.5) with a Elinchrom Rotalux EL-strip 33 x 175 cm) is used to light up the back of my arm and shoulder and my neck and hair on the left side. A beauty dish (Elinchrom D-Lite it 4 (power 2.0) with a Elinchrom Minisoft-44 Beauty Dish with diffuser is adding a catch light in my eyes and a soft light on my face and body fronting the light.

The Nikon D300 was on 1/125 f/13 (ISO 200) as the digital light meter told me it should be (you can see it hanging around my neck - very much like a pro photographer :o) ). I was hoping for a darker wall as I'm placed 1.5 meter from the wall and the meter reading here was f/9. Two stops should be enough to turn the wall darker - or what? Anyone have input here?

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.
