Photo Art Friday – Connected

From a session with the youngster…


The connection between a human and a horse is neither simple nor necessarily straightforward, but always beautiful when nurtured with respect and mutual understanding…

For this series I have used low-level lighting photos together with Kim Klassen’s texture Return, and a few adjustments to reduce saturation and soften the images.

First baby-swim photo session

A while ago, Eric’s mother suggested that we might do a photo session when she took Eric for a baby-swim at the local pool. I readily agreed. We set a date, and yesterday was it.

Obviously, I couldn’t get in the water with them (I mean, I want a new camera, but there’s no need to get drastic about it…), but with sensible clothes and a fortunately otherwise deserted baby pool, I could lie flat on my belly at the edge of the pool and as long as I kept a steady grip on my camera and a healthy distance from Eric’s water antics (they primarily consisted of exultant splashing) I think we did a rather decent job of our first pool session!

Some favorites for your viewing pleasure… Eric is just such a delightful child to work with! 🙂





Fototriss 180 – Old

Thanks for any and all votes in the competition last week – I enjoyed the ride and congratulate the winners!

For this week’s theme, I admit the shots are new, and the experience is new to (most of) the young couples involved, but the tradition is old. And the forms are even older… So here are pictures from the abiturient ball in Linköping, 2 June 2012 – a little styled, the better to suit the theme… 🙂
