The Prettiest Theater in the Whole of Landskrona

I like this building, it's simply very photogenic and nice to photograph... and just for clarity, it's also the only theater in Landskrona.

Street Scenes in Landskrona

A town is nothing without its people and Landskrona is no different. I'm not much of a street photographer, but here are some of my humble attempts to capture some of this towns daily life.

Random Architectural Photos From Around Town

Nothing quite like just wondering about around town pointing the camera at random stuff and taking pictures. So without further ado, random architectural detail photos from around town.

Inside the Old Landskrona Town Hall

After 11 years of living in Landskrona I finally had the opportunity to get inside the old city hall with my camera. I was taking photos on behalf of an organization that works for collaboration between the various Scandinavian countries called "Föreningen Norden" and that meant I could get some great pics of this spectacular building from the inside. A win-win situation!

(Now I feel the need to get back inside with a tripod and a wider lens... oh well.)

First the Landskrona Rådhus from the outside:

...and now the central public areas on the inside:

More Nikon 16mm Fisheye Experimenting

The Nikon 16mm Fisheye lens is a quite remarkable piece of tech in that it can actually record a full 180°. This sucker can see sideways! But straight from the camera the best I could get was this:

Not as wide as hoped and of course a little dull and dark... put it through DxO PL6, adjusted a few settings and discovered that there was more photo that was not originally revealed:

I then decided to squeeze a bit more out, played with the manual distortion buttons a bit as well and got this very wide and less fisheye looking photo:

Along the way I found that this lens really has very limited use but if used creatively in the right setting it can deliver interesting results. Not every bodies cup of tea, but interesting none the less.

Tulips in the Studio

Decided to shoot some tulips in my tiny studio. 

Nikon D850, 24-120mm f4 lens @120mm, f11, two Speedlights fired and controlled wirelessly via Nikons CLS & shot through an octobox to camera right and a gobo from under the table onto the background. Handheld throughout. I have posted a pullback shot at the end so you can see the light setup and layout.


...and lastly the promised pullback shot:

This clinic is right by the beachfront area of Landskrona and across from the Citadel area. I photographed it at night almost two hours after sunset, hand held. Nikon D850, Nikon 35mm f1.8 lens, iso 8000, f5.6, 1/60s, -1.0 EV, processed in DxO PL6.

Citadellbadet Building - Night

The building at one of the the swimming pools in Landskrona, but at night... in winter. No water in the pool right now but the building still lights up at night. I think it's very pretty.

Are Sunset Photos Cliché?

I read an article online recently where they labeled sunset (and sunrise) photography cliché. Maybe it is and if it is, what a wonderful cliché it is! Our sun has captivated us humans for many millennia and for good reason, it is such a powerful part of our lives, both giving us life and power but conversely it also influences our climate and has the power to bring about slow entropic decay and destruction.

Well whatever, I say long live the sunset photos!! Here are a few more:

Swedish Hobbit House

In a part of the earthen wall defenses of the Landskrona Citadel there is this entrance to what can only be a Hobbit house. (I assume it's actually some kind of storage room) Very Middle Earth.

Harbour Scenes

The harbour area around the Landskrona City Hall area is certainly worth a visit with its blend of old and modern buildings. Very photographic indeed.

Reflecting on the Landskrona Stadshus

The reflection of the Landskrona City Hall is almost prettier than the building itself.
