Yesterday I made another attempt to cover a horserace at Täby Galopp. The weather was fine and the whole evening was great with many interesting horse events. Like barrel racing and shooting with a bow and arow from horseback. However I concentrated on the traditional races. Trying to capture the speed and color of the event. Easy, NO! Difficult to chose the right images that I think are the best. I´ll keep on experimenting, and I will see what will come out of it.
Well, I did it my way!
More winners and more amazing photos. Great photography is being made every day all over the world. I told you, being a photographer is the best thing to be. I think. It is great to get inspiration from wunderful images like these.

So what would life be without photographers and photography? Boring don´t you think?
This is a picture of a picture from Huseby Slott ( castle ) from earlier this summer. Where the different images start, or end, is not really clear. But, why should it be? Go there if you are around. You will find more info through the link, however only in swedish. But I am sure that you get the picture.
Amazingly beautiful images, but who made them? I hope we will find out. Read the full story with the link to BBC below.
A US photographer has launched an internet hunt to find two mysterious women pictured on an old roll of film she discovered in a second-hand shop.
Meagan Abell was sifting through a box of vintage photographs in Richmond, Virginia when she found four sets of “transparency slides”.
She took them home to scan them and was “shocked” at the level of detail.
“I thought ‘holy wow they are beautiful’. I’d love to find the women or the photographer who took them.”
I saw this on the BBC News App and thought you should see it:
Ten steps to improve your photography
Lecturer Grant Scott offers advice on how to use your interests to produce better pictures.
” Every decision you make in your life from what you wear, what you eat, how you vote, how you decorate your home, where you visit, what you listen to, what you watch and what you believe are influenced by professional photography and professional photographers. They don’t just shoot weddings.”

I have never been much of a horse person. A cat and dog person, perhaps, but not horse. I have mostly had a neutral interest in them. However, recently I discovered the excitement attending horse racing in southern Sweden. At Jägersro.
Standing up close and feeling the power of the horses and the concentration, determination of the jockeys were overwhelming. With a very small camera I made theese photographs.
The images are mostly from the warm up and while the jockeys were showing them to the audience and those to bet on them.
This was all new to me and I must say that I have discovered a whole new world. I really like to go there again, or to another horse race, to see what I can accomplish. Time for a new challange!
Another interesting article about photography, from BBC. About the line not to cross in photojournalism. I have spent several days with colleagues at the Visa pour l’Image Perpignan, France. An international press photo festival. The discussions are very interesting. They as photo journalists have totally different standards for their jobs. Me, on the other hand, being a food and commercial photographer, I am most often expected to do images “better”. We have the same tools but different standards to follow. Stories about staged photos makes you think. We should all do that. Sometimes it is OK, but sometimes absolutely NOT. History will tell…
Please read and think. Of course this is a problem when it comes to photo contests.
