Studio, Portrait, Still Life, Lighting Equipment and Technique Continuous and Strobe Lighting. (The Sun is considered continuous!) Great ideas are really ten a penny! Technique in setting up the subject is, of course, essential. However, the ability to bring out form, texture, tonality and color is where the skill in lighting provides all the keys to engraving one's ideas on the delivered picture.

Default Can the gallery be the art work =)

Strange as usual, my latest project was to make my big gallery ( www.browalls.se ) that only exists online ( made in 3d ), the founder of its branch in my suburb, now a real existing gallery, as I now rent a shop that I fixed a little. Here are two images from the outside, first showing Sven Boqvists camera "Birgit", very large format ( 10"x12" ), and some glass plates.



I covered a distracting white pillar in the window with a lot of magazine pages from the 50's and added a big movie poster from my invented film Hello Paris.



( in the story it competes with Funny Face and Seventh Seal by Ingmar Bergman in Cannes Film festival 1957. Sven's favorite model, the russian ballerina Tatiana Baronova has some spectacular dance scenes in it and also performs a special choreography in Entibes against a wall, looks like this )



... and here I am fixing the wood stuff so I can hang the frames on the walls.



Here is the logo on the window and some frames inside ...



It's fun to fabricate things that does not exist =) And it's an experiment for two months to see if this is something I want to go on with or not. I see it more like an art project ion itself as I have no expectations to sell anything. Just having the logo on the window was enough for me =)

Great work!







That picture on the rocks was made how? In any case it is superb!

Thank you!
I was in Antibes ( now I can spell it =) ) , looking for backgrounds, as I do on my "vacations" and by climbing on some walls behind the Sheikh yacht harbour I found that wall and immediately got a vision of how to use it. So after I had been in Nice, Cannes, Antibes and Monte Carlo I had enough for the second part of my Sven Boqvist project. So I contacted the ballerina and had a shoot so she was added later. Took me two days. (one reason, it was hard to get the black and whites that I wanted, as it had to resemble the look of a scene in a Ingmar Bergman movie to fit the story behind it, and also fix the depth of field for the model, add the right shadows by making a similar scene in 3d and so on )
