There has always been sound. Some sound attracted humans more and differently. “Who” was the first to combine different sounds? When did someone start to repeat sound? Thought they had a good rhythm going. Has humans always reacted to sound foot tapping and dancing? It all started many days from now and it is easy to get lost in thoughts of who and when. How did it look like and where was it?
Just enjoying my LP´s on a rainy day.
The images from one of my calendar projects.
When I studied to become a photographer I learned how rays of light travel through glass and how they reflect on different surfaces. I learned how to use chemicals to develop my films and prints. How a light meter works and that the illustration above was an up to date SLR, Single Lens Reflex, camera. It was, but not so anymore! Today most cameras are small hi-tech computers with a lab attached that focus, recognize faces, expose in difficult lights and they develope your image. Cameras are, however, as they have always been, a lens in one end and a distance to a light sensitive material in the other. Chip or film. So who is a good photographer? What is a good photograph? Well, I am not one to judge or tell you. This will always be up to you. However, whenever you fall in love with the subject in the picture, a cute puppy or a sexy girl, or man of course, perhaps that is not a good photograph. Perhaps. At least give it a thought.
Today photography is not so destructive to our environment like it used to be. That is great! I like that!
Here is an intresting link to an article about the box camera. About what happens when you do NOT fire away exposures, but take your time doing one. The article is written by Stephen Dowling and you will find it on BBC.com. More food for thoughts.
Then there are those, like Man Ray, that produces stunning images using some photographic tools but without a camera!
Check this out if you can! Ewa Stackelberg now exhibiting at Fotografiska in Stockholm.
Happy image hunting!
Todays assignment on WordPress blogging101. Edit your title and your tagline. I have made some adjustments, but I still have a lot more thinking to do. My tags will be changing and I wouldn’t be surprised if my title will to.
So, how was it my company got named Znapshot? I was studying advertising at Beckmans School. The most inspirational and best school I have ever attended! It was more like an art school. I found a studio and decided to start my own company. Before studying at Beckmans I had been a photographers assistant. A strong trend at the time was to spell with a z instead of an s. I liked that! I just didn’t like to name my company Studio xxx, or Photographer xxx. Too many other photographers did. Most of it is history today. That was over 30 years ago.
Todays images are from my exhibition in Karlstad last summer. Old hand written recipies from the family archive.
A good and existential question.
My name is Pelle ( Per Erik ) Berglund and I am a professional photographer since many years. The best job I still can think of. I am one of those lucky guys that live of my greatest intrest in life. Lucky me! I would like to share my images, my experience and my thoughts with you. Perhaps you are a working photograper, just like me, or you would like to be one. Perhaps you are a person who are working with photographers or you like photography. An Art Director perhaps? This will not be a blogg about technical tips. Not many anyway. This will be about my work and everything that goes with it. My thoughts and inspirations. Today I am very much a food photographer working with the Swedish Culinary Teams. Seniors and Juniors. Also the Swedish Pastry Team. I have photographed 11 cook books until today, and it is OK to get hungry now and then.
