The City Hall in the rain

By | Color, Gothenburg, Long Exposure, Sweden | No Comments

Going out as it get’s dark, especially in the rain can be very rewarding. This time however, even thou I managed to get some shots it was more of a struggle, trying to keep the rain away from my lens.
I had to wipe it off…take a couple of frames, and wipe it off again. But after some time that didn’t really do any good. Here are a few pictures from one of those rainy, dark evenings.
I had fun trying to avoid the rain and shooting the City hall with some “Christmas lights”.

Goteborg City Hall at night - Long Exposure Photography

I managed to get a few shots before my gear got wet. The weather “sealing” on my Canon 7D hasn’t failed me yet.  – I think I need to work a little more on these when I have the time, that little white square disturbs me. ;)

City Hall at Night - Goteborg Photography

I like shooting in the rain but sometimes it’s really hard to hold on the umbrella and keep the rain away from the camera. I think I should invest in some rain-gear. ;)

This is one of the last shots I took, and as you can see I could no longer keep the rain away from my lens. It was time to call it a day and go for a coffee and try to dry my gear. The above shot is a Jpeg straight out of the camera, just straightened it a little, nothing else.

Shot with a Canon 7D and my trusted 24-105 lens, at about 30 sec F11 and ISO 100

Skaters in action - Street Photography
A summer´s day and two skaters are having fun.
I’m very partial to harsh shadows so I tend to take these shots in the afternoon as the sun is low but still gives me strong lines between shadow and light and long shadows from the subjects, like from the skater above.

Avenyn Light trails - Long Exposure Photography

Following my decision to do more Long exposure shots of my Hometown and try to do something with our trams. My project of shooting my hometown, starts with capturing light trails on the Avenyn (the avenue/main boulevard in the city) with trams as the source of light trails.

Shot in December 2014 so we have a lot of Christmas light on the street.

17B - Street Photography

17B – A Street scene from Gothenburg, Sweden. People are saying that we spend too much time with our phones today, and little time is spent talking to other people. As if that was more so before the introduction of smart phones. I remember how I used to spend my time staring into a book, magazine or the daily paper. I didn’t converse strangers more than I do today. One thing I can say, I read more than I do today. ;)

Goteborg Tram

Goteborg Tram - Black and white Photography
Today I went out for a photowalk. It’s raining today so I thought I would catch some reflection shots from the traffic or just something cool. Once I got out it was a little windy so I decided to continue with my “Tram Project”, trying to do something with our trams we have in the city. Experimenting with long exposure mostly. It was dark and rainy.
The shot above is one of the shots I took this afternoon. A Long Exposure of a Tram passing by ;)

New Year Fireworks

Fireworks New Year 2014 - Photography
Welcome to the year 2015

I haven’t shot many New Year Fireworks, actually I think this is my second time. I was really unsure how to do this to get the best result. I feared overexposure and not getting it in focus in the dark.
Below is one of the shots from today. A single 10 second shot at F13 and ISO 100.
I need to do this more often to be confident enough to make good shots every time. What do you think, is it too dark?

Urban Exploration 1.2

 Stairs - Urban Exploration Photography
The stairs – My second shot from my first Urban Exploration adventure. We went down the stairs seen in the shot and found this view and I just new I had to do something with it.
I have to say that finding things to shoot, wasn’t hard, but finding things to shoot that will make it as a good photo, that’s another story. This is also what I’m trying to do as a Street Photographer, to find things and Frame them so they make a good photo.
I don’t know how I did but I had a blast ;)
