Mono Lars - Day 33


Time for a self portrait again. This conversion - from a standard color raw file to a mono version with punch - is made 100% in Lightroom. To start with I made it much more gritty but felt that it didn't look that nice on me. No presets have been used. I also used the "Adjustment Bruch" with "Auto Mask" to paint the back drop brighter.

The original photo is here - straight out of the camera.


And here you have the home studio set-up to make this photo.


The set-up is a Nikon D300 with a AF 50mm f/1.4. A PW MiniTT1 and PW AC3 is mounted in the flash hot shoe so it is possible to control the flash output of the SB-900 mounted on a PW FlexTT5 and shooting into a silver umbrella.
The D300 settings where: ISO 200, M-mode, exposure 1/125 sec f/5.6 as a starting point. I soon realized I hade to go to f/7.1 to get more DoF sharpness. The PW AC3 I started of on the lowest output value and the increase by one stop a time until I reased a reading on the histogram that looked ok without any clippings. I'm using a plain white wall a back drop. The D300 is remotely controlled by the cable release Nikon MC-36.

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…
