Frederik Bisbjerg portrait - Day 20

The best way to learn how to shoot with small flash is to experiment in the field. My good friend Frederik and I share a passion for shooting with Nikon Speedlight with various light modifiers and PocketWizards.

I won't go to much into details but just recommend that you team up with a friend and then start to play with light setup, modifiers, gels and positioning of the model in the surroundings you have chosen. It's lot of fun.

Nikon D300 with Sigma 70-200mm f/2.8. Exposure: 1/40 sec at f/2.8 (ISO 400)

The first photo is SOOF - Straight Our Of Camera - no post processing in LR! It just shows how well a photo can be done "in camera" if all settings are correct. And light plays a major role in getting a photo sharp also. I have added no sharpening at all. And this is captured with a Nikon D300 - (12 MP sensor!) at ISO 400.

Nikon D300 with Nikkor AF-S 12-24mm f/4. Exposure: 1/60 sec at f/8.0 (ISO 400)

The second photo has been post processed a bit in LR3. I've added sharping and noise reduction together with some clarity. That's all.
With both photos I find that the light is falling just right (SB-900 with a 1/2 CTO reflected from an umbrella) adding nice shadows and the 1/2 CTO is adding a nice warmth to the skin.

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…
