(my longest and most fulfilling post this year)

Li ! =)

Last weekend, me and Ingrid was in Li, to visit our family cabins. Both our families actually have neighbouring cabins (we got  there first, btw).

And well, anyway, heres some pictures of the view from the roof of our cabin.

This is a family shot of Ingrid and her family. Minus their pet, Mathias._MG_1152

And lastly a shot of me and Ingrid. Shot by her little brother Isak. He performed better here than at the snow angel making. Luckily.

My deviantArt

Im not only on flickr, Ive also had a dA account for quite a few years. And Ive recently (today) began to update it again. I kinda miss the community there, doubiously infected by kids and “fine art nudes”-selfportrait artists as it may be. Its really a nice place for inspiration, actions and textures, so Im gonna give it a try again =)

You can find my deviantart at pakse.deviantart.com and add me to watch and leave me a comment! =D

Movie time =D

OK, so now Ive finally gotten the last of my order from Scandinavianphoto.no, and this is how it looks!

The meanest looking 500D in town, mounted with a Tokina 12-24 F4 MK I lense, a Rôde Microphone, and a Yamaha Pockettrak 2g.

Tokina 12-24

_U1C8800

Yamaha 2G– it’s a sound recording device, it can be used with its built in mic, or I can use it with my external mic (since the 500D doesnt have a mini jack in), and its so small Im just gonna find a way to mount it on the side of the mic. Probably.

_U1C8786

Røde mic

_U1C8780

Now I just need something to shoot! 😀

I, Flickr

Probably.

 

Maybe.
