DIY wall-art

What you need:

2014-10-14 19.12.16– Frame (IKEA)
– paint samples (from chlaes ohlsson, free)- gluestick

2014-10-14 19.27.02place the paint-samples in a pattern to your liking. Spread the samples on your canvas, and glue them into place.

2014-10-14 20.29.12I choose to put two of them together, and all the rest apart. Why? Because everything doesnt need to be perfect, and this wall-art is a reminder to relax.

DIY home-studio

I sometimes get questions on how I set the light for my home-studio-shoots. Here’s how:

What you need (and what I used):
– Ducktape (black from chlaes ohlsson)
– backdrop (3 meters of fabric)
– tripod
– flash (SB900)
– reflector (and something to hold it up)
– camera (Nikon D800)

What I did first is to stick the backdrop onto the wall with some ducktape. This backdrop was bought for a wedding-shoot, where we used the pattern on the back of it. You mark the spot where you want your model (the chair), and set up the tripod hence to what width you want in your photos.

2014-10-12 13.49.26As you can see, the flash is pointing backwards. When you don’t have too much equipment, like me, you sometimes have to be creative. Bouncing the light from the flash in a reflector right behind, makes the effect of having a bigger lightsource. That way, you don’t get the hard edges and shadows, but instead end up with a soft light, perfect for portraits.

2014-10-12 13.50.00My camerasettings looks like this on a day without too much ambient light (sunlight):

ISO: 400
f: 4,5
focal length: 48 mm
shutter: 1/80
white balance: auto
flash: manual (1/2)
(and subject distance: 1,5 meters)

This was the setup I used this sunday. For the result of the beautiful ladies who paid me a visit: stay tuned for later this week.

Lots Of Love!


Had these beautiful ladies over for a home-studio-shoot today.

Long time, no blogging. It’s been about a month since me and my boyfriend left Møre, and it was a sweet relief to be in «my town» again. Last weekend I got to photograf the lovely Hannah and Morten at their wedding in Oslo, and here’s some photos of them:
