Winter HDR shoot!

Sea Snow Track panorama

This weekend I was out shooting some 32-bit panoramas for my HDR-library. It was blistering cold and the lake was frozen so I went out in the middle of it and shot this one. I might publish some HDR’s for download here later.

Worldwide advertising campaign (retouch)


I made this series of images for a past retouching studio I worked for. The campaign was used worldwide so I had to change language for each country that used them. The coolest ads I did was the one for Russia and one for Japan. Both used their own special letters and characters, which made it pretty tricky to do a perfect layout in the beginning.

BMW 330 ”The desert chase” (photo & retouch)

This is a personal photo and retouch project that I did back in 2005. At that time I was working in one of the bigger retouch studios in Stockholm and car retouch was one of my main jobs.

I was really inspired to try and photograph a car myself, so one weekend I brought a friend with me to a suburb south of Stockholm and we found this small closed road that would do fine for the photoshoot. I had some ideas for the final image and the concept was simple, but I needed to capture one sharp photo of the car in motion (which I would later retouch the crap out of :)). I used real film (I didn’t own a digital SLR camera then), so there was no room for any mistakes.

I photographed my friend in his BMW from the window of my Mini Cooper. We drove slowly, about 15-20 km/h, but that was enough to capture the motion and sense of speed in the scene. The desert and mountains in the background were created from several other photos and the helicopter I found on Google. I thought that it would add to the feeling of a chase!

San Francisco panorama

This panorama was photographed from the boat to Alcatraz in the summer 2006. I used my Nikon D200, leaned against the railing on the boat and rotated the camera (free hand) using reference points in the horizon to get the appropriate overlap for better stitching.

This image is also available as a highres version.

”The Ice man” (retouch)

A retouch I did for a former studio where I worked. The image was part of a car advertising campaign. I had to rebuild the whole background and make a lot of changes to the clothes. All the snow was also added to the guys face and clothes.

London Bus panorama (Photography)

This panorama was shot in a London Bus late at night. I was in London shooting QTVR’s for a website and on my way home I tried a pano in the bus, since I had all the equipment already setup. I believe this is the only panorama shot in a London bus in traffic, it must be! 🙂

Candy dress (retouch)

Image retouch for photographer Felix Odell. The dress was actually made of real candy hearts. I gave both images the ”washed out” style and I also extended the walls in both pictures.
