Step Behind my Lense

Ready for an adventure? Take a dive into my world of photography in cold autumn Tønsberg, Norway! All photos shot on the Canon EOS 90D. Feel free to reach out and connect with me!

1.1. Exposure Black on black

Aperature: f/8 shutter speed: 4s iso: 100

I took this image in a toy box with daylight and one extra light source. I played a bit with the composition and an angle that I wanted to take a picture in. I had to use a tripod to stabilize the camera so that I could use such a long exposure. I set the apparature to f/8 so that I could get a lot of detail on the cup and blur out the coffee beans in the front and the background.

1.2. Exposure white on white

Aperature: f/11 shutter speed: 2s iso: 100

I took this image at night with two light sources one from the top and one from the side. This cup is more white beige so I had to use quite a low shutterspeed and a tripod. I set apparature to f/11 to get this crisp focus on the cup and the shadow.

2. Freeze the movement

The idea behind this photo was to capture the movement of the water between two rocks that frame the scene. I was lucky enough to capture the bird in the flight in the upper right corner just as I captured the water splash. I used narrow apertur to get the accent on the water splash, and a fast shutter speed to capture the movement. It was quite dark when I took the photo so I had to use iso of 400.

Aperature: f/8 shutter speed: 1/400s iso: 400

3. Movement

Aperature: f/ 25 shutter speed: 2s ISO: 100

The idea behind this photo was to take a picture of the cold, dark, ocean in Norway and show its misty movement. It was taken using a very small aperture of f/25 in order to remove background blur and achieve sufficient depth of field. The shutter speed was set to 2s so that I could capture the movement of the ocean.I set the ISO to 100 so that I can keep as much of details as possible.

4. Shallow dept of field

Aperature: f/8 shutter speed: 1/60s iso: 400

I was lucky enough to spot this tiny fragile mushroom growing quite high on the tree. It was a rainy and quite dark day so I had to adjust the iso to 400. I wanted to get quite a shallow dept of feild to capture all of the small details both on the mushroom and on the moss surrounding it so I used aperature of f/8 and the shutter speed of 1/60.

5. Deep dept of feild

Aperature: f/32 shutter speed: 1/13s iso:100

This photography was taken on a beautifull sunny morning on the beach in town called Tønsberg. I was trying to achive a good dept of feild and a lot of details both near and far so I used narrow aperture f/32. To still keep a bit of a movement in the waves I opted for a slower shutter speed 1/13s and an iso 100 to keep as much detail as possible.

6. Low light

Aperature: f/22 shutter speed: 1/4s iso: 6400

I took this image of my child in the pitch black room only with a little light in the box. I had to use a tripod to stabilize the camera so that I could use such a long exposure. I set the apparature to f/22 so that I could get a lot of detail from the surounding. And I had to use quite a high ISO so the noise is present.

7. Portrait in soft light

Aperture: f/5.6 shutter speed: 1/160s iso:2500

I took this picture of my sun inside his kindergarten. For lightning there was only one lamp giving off a soft glow. I opted for a wide aperture to achive a good dept of feild and a fast shutter speed 1/160s since the photography was takeh hand heald and he was moving quite a lot. To be abel to shoot with such a shutter speed I needed to put up the iso to 2500.

8. Creative light

Aperture: f/9 shutter speed: 1/125s iso: 100

This picture was taken with sunlight as the only light source. I used the lowest iso of 100 to get as much of details and no noise. I used quite deep dept of feild with the aperture of f/9 because I wanted to get as much of details and think I managed to get to the sweet spot. I was shooting hand heald and the light was changing quite fast so I decided to use fast shutter speed to capture the moment.

9. Rule of thirds

Aperture: f/5.6 shutter speed: 1/60s iso:100

I took this photo of my daughter on the playground. The sunlight was comming at an angle and I used the lowest possible iso that my camera can produce. I used an aperture of f/5.6 to achive a good depth of field. I croped an image so that the child is the focuse of this picture because the original had too much emphasis on the wooden beam since it was in the centre of the composition.

10. Extreme composition

Aperature: f/5.6 shutter speed: 1/250s iso: 200

The idea behind this photo was to brake composition rules and to take a photo from a different angle. The photography is taken from a specific angle (me laying down in the bushes). It is breaking the rules of comoposition by placing the subject on the far right side. It was shot hand heald with a moving subject so I had to have fast shutter speed.

11. Leading lines

Aperture: f/5 shutter speed: 1/30s iso:5000

The stairs are leading the viewer to start tracking the spiraled railing from the right-hand side all the way down to the bottom of the stairs. I
used a large aperture f/5 with a narrow dept of field so that the viewer can focus on the first part of the stairs. Shutter speed was set to 1/30s and I had to use a high iso 5000 because there was not much light in the room.

12. Contrast

Aperture: f/5.6 shutter speed: 1/13s iso: 100

I think that this photo represents it very well. With the dark red colour popping out of the white bark. The old and the new contrasting each other. I used large aperture to achive less depth of feild to bring the point of viewer to the point of interest. Shutter speed was set as high as possible for the lightning sittuation, since the photo was taken hand heald and I tried keeping the iso as low as possible to keep the details.

13. Negative space

Aperture: f/5.6 shutter speed: 1/20s iso:400

This photo was taken in the forest with very little light so I had to use quite a high iso of 400. The aperture is set to largest possible for my camera and lense so that I could get only the branch and a drop of water in the feild of focus. The shutter speed was set to 1/20s because the photo was taken hand heald.

14. New perspective

I saw this awesome cluster of mushrooms in the three and tought that it would be a neat way of showing it off from this perspective. I was standing low at the bottom of the three trying to get as much of the three in the frame. I used apertur of f/8 to get a shallow dept of feild so that the camera focuses more on the middle part of the composition than the rest of it. The photography was taken on a rainy, dark day so I had to use iso 400 and it was taken hand heald so the shutter speed was set to 1/60s.

Aperature: f/8 shutter speed: 4s iso: 100

15. A photograph is worth a tousant words

Aperature: f/8 shutter speed: 4s iso: 100

I took this image of the light house and the fun colorful light coming thrue the windows. I played a bit with the composition and an angle that I wanted to take a picture from. I set the apparature to f/8 so that I could get a lot of detail on the inside of the lighthouse and blur out the sea in the background.
