  • Every day is day closer to me having to learn some like Photoshop/Pixelmator Pro/Affinity Photo … 😬

  • Time to for todays “photo assignment”. Wife who teaches structural mechanics to building engineers want to have illustrations for slides and web sites … so off to town and make some “illustrative photos” of building details (I have no idea what to photograph, but 🤷🏻)

  • If I want to mix photos with text and print of my own printer, what program should I use. I’ve tried doing it in LR but it doesn’t really work. I probably need some layout program but which one? Right now single photos with some text, later perhaps booklets (if this works out)

  • Such a difference in viewing photos on Glass or Vero compared to Instagram

  • Been looking at Vero the last week or so, it’s interesting much better display of photos than Instagram but not as good as Glass, but Vero has other strengths. Interesting is also that several of the “well known” photographers from Instagram has started to post on Vero

  • The speed difference in importing photos on my iPad and on a iPad Air M1 is pretty significant… I’m talking about 10 times or so.

  • Quite happy with two portraits I printed today. Wonderful light on one.

  • Hmmm, Wikipedia says Instagram was officially launched October 6, 2010. It looks like I posted my first photo there October 9, 2010 … so I guess I among the first million users or so.

  • Hmm, I like editing photos on my iPad (unless I have too many). My iPad is the first 11" Pro model and it works, but it takes some time to import. Today, I connected my word iPad Air M1 to a card reader and tried it with RAW files that are 90MB in size … wow, what a difference

  • Hmmm, lesson learned: new high resolution camera + newborn grandchild => free disk space shrinking fast.

  • Hmmm, I bought a Lumix G9 (second hand) about 24 months ago … and I’ve been thinking that I haven’t used it as much as the Nikons I had previously, but still 43000+ photos. Also, bought a Ricoh GR IIIx a month ago and > 800 photos. Apparently I like taking photos

  • Before continuing, let me assure you that I’m 100% uninterested in tinkering with cars. I have no interest whatsoever in repairing cars, or trying to make car restorations. But I do admire people who spend a lot of time learning and doing things like this, I admire people in general that becomes really good at something, for example juggling, painting, or woodworking. And even if I’m completely uninterested, myself, I can listen/watching these people for hours.

    Anyway, closely related to being interested in cars is the sub-culture “raggare”. Where I grew up, “raggare” was (is) a very popular identity to a large group of the male population. But, as I mentioned above, I’m completely uninterested in all this. However, a few years ago, I realised that there are a lot of interesting things (cars and people) to photograph when these people meet.

    Today was “Wheels Nationals Norr 2022”, a fairly large “car meet” (if that’s the correct expression in English) where people from northern Sweden, + some from Finland, met to show off their cars, drive around, drink beer, and have a good time.

    In other words, an excellent opportunity for me to walk around and take some photos. So let me show you a few photos, so you get a feeling for the event.

  • 40 mm

    I’ve started to use a 40mm lens and have found that I really like it. I’ve had it laying around for quite a while but I haven’t really used it. I use it in combination with my Lumix GX80, and while the combination is a bit too big and heavy to carry around all the time, I really like the focal length.

  • Packing stuff: studio flash, background, stands, tripod, camera … hopefully some decent portraits will be made today

  • I’m rich again!! I sold a photo!! I wonder how I should spend the $0.01 I got

  • Hmmm. I decided to remove all photos from my Flickr account and start over. Once I had deleted all photos, I went to bed, when I got up I had two new followers … for an empty account. It has been a while since I got a new follower so two new in a short time is very surprising

  • Restarted my micro.blog account recently, now severely tempted to restart my Flickr account also.

  • Today’s most interesting photo was a 4 generation photo: granddaughter, son, wife and father in law. I love that we are able to catch photos like this. (And no, I didn’t include a photo)
