I have made a lot of new polaroids the last 24h. In January I will put them togehter and make a complete serie of Polaroids. I have a few sessions left for completing this Polaroid-project. I am sure I will pick it up with new photos in a near future in a new Polaroid-project. I am going to find a way to print them so it will look like the real thing. I am thinking of buying a A3 good quality printer so I can print on aquarelle paper which I think will add quality instead of using regular photo-paper. Since I got the scholarship award from the Photographic Association I can make a book from my Polaroids, that is something I am looking forward to do.
I would like to give my gratitude to everyone that follows my pictures on this blog and of course a big thanks to all the models that has posed for me in different sessions. I am full of gratitude towards you. I hope I will be extremely rich in the future so I can share some monetary luck until then I hope you enjoy our work and the output that I create from our cooperation. Thank you and a Happy New Year full of new sessions with output that attracts and gives emotions.
I am starting a new creativity project to put pictures in different frames which I will hope will add some artistic value.
And some more Polaroids:
Earlier tonight I had an excellent experimental session with Linet. I love to work with her. She is a good friend and very beautiful and we simply love to work together. I felt urged to try something completely new with kind of difficult lightning and to tear the droplet and make it part of the picture.
Thank you Linet for giving my energy having the session and I am so happy to have tried something new and that you believe in my crazy ideas such a a thorn droplet.
I just had to make a few poalroids from the lovely session with the beautiful Ida.
I had a session with Ida today and it went really well. Ida is very talanted and so beautiful. The pictures turned out excellent. She is a proffessional model without knowing it. I love the pictures and hope for a session very soon again.
Tonight I have generated a lot of new pictures that I will make new polaroids from. They are waiting for some editing.
I found a very funny and artistic application on the Internet that I downloaded and started to wotk on some of my pictures.
I made my first digital poalroid ever and I am on autopilot.

Natasha is so beautiful and lovely to work with.

I worked on the pictures after the polaroid generation in Photoshop to create and manage the colours as I wanted them to be.
On the pictures below, model Gabrielle. Gabrielle was really wonderful to work with. We got so many beautiful pictures that are useful for many different projects. I love to have pictures like that. Classical and not bound to time. She has such a classical look, so beautiful.
Yesterday evening I had a session with Reut. She has never modelled before but she has a wonderful look and is very beautiful and she managed the studio very well I think. We got some really nice pictures. I used 3-4 lights, a beautydish, 2 snoots and one light with grids. So it was mainly spotlightning. The effect from using spotlights is very interesting, it gives very distinct shadows and highlights.
Today I was doing country skiing. Every inch of my muscles hurts. I brought my camera to capture the beautiful winter landscape we have now.
I had some wonderful pictures from a danceclass in Tel aviv a year and a half ago.
I am having a slow day today so I am going through my hard drives for pictures.
At my friend Anne´s old apartment this summer.
Nature is beautiful. People are more beautiful. I will keep up with visiting the nature with my camera.
The model Elin Paulander.
Today I photographed the beautiful winter landscape we have here in Uppsala. It is not that often I go out and photograph nature and upload it here.
No manipulations on these pictures, it is nature as it is. I bought a pair of cross country skies today so I assume it will be more nature pictures from me ahead. However I have booked the studio on both Monday and Tuesday so I will not forget my pink project. I have new ideas for the collage that probably will be done in the coming week before Christmas.
The study of the winter alley:
Today I had a pik wonderful princess session with Linet. She is so excellent and has a wonderful look and appeal in her eyes and her whole body shows emotions and beauty and she is very skilled. I love to work with her. We choose to use a pink droplet with a princess style in the photos. I have had this ideas in my head for some time now. After the session on my way home I bought some requisita for both my collages to come and also some more princess style accessories. I met a colleague in the shop for children toys and I had to say it was for a christmas gift, I was a little bit embarrassed. But maybe she reads this and likes the pictures, I would be very happy then.
The princess of the day is for sure Linet.
I have just realised that the pictures is within a theme of mine that is called ”The pink Princess theme”. I am going to make a really interesting and nice serie of pictures within that theme.
