My words, thoughts and photos from a Swedish perspective

Today’s image

My idea was to do a portrait session during the weekend, but nobody volunteered. The old myth about the necessity of sunshine is still alive, despite the fact that it was true in the childhood of photography when the film’s sensitivity to light was low. Slow shutter speeds and tripod were therefore a must, but a bright sunny day made a difference. Films improved but the old idea remained true and modern digital cameras can do an excellent job under conditions that were difficult to master only a couple of years ago. Getting good portrait shots on a cloudy day in November should be a piece of cake and I like that particular light, because it brings out the whole register of tones nicely.

I was a bit grumpy when I grabbed the camera and left home, determined to capture some beauty one way or another and you can see the result above. I wonder why, but I’m not grumpy anymore…
