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 The non existing Browall Photographic Gallery in Sweden ...

Another weird project.

This time I have invented a photographic gallery, ...

To make the gallery believable I just started some things on Facebook, to fool people. So I got a friend of mine to act as a curator of the gallery, and thats the made up reason they hired me to take his portrait, for an article about the him, new curator, in the first issue of the Browalls magazine.

And then I also got the opportunity to document the facilities. Here is a selfie using a Fisheye lens ( Peleng 8mm ) on a 40d. Im holding my 50d II. And behind me are the unusual statues with camera heads .

A 360 PANORAMA of the gallery is here

If you put the Fisheye on the floor pointing upwards you get a fun angle ...

The gallery also has a panorama section for wide images like this one of Tatiana Baronova, the russian ballerina.

More Tatiana.

Images from 4 exhibitions on the site ( )


Its a strange but fun way to show one's images, under different names,in a exclusive, non existent galleries =)

Where is the "like" button when you need it?

This is brilliant on many levels. I have a feeling that this is also much more important than it seems. We live in a "post truth" society. Vanity galleries or pay for print fake magazine are a dime a dozen. Maybe you captured more of the Zeitgeist than you bargained for.

You could probably make good money with the Browall photography gallery. Just think about it.

I know the struggle in selling from a real gallery, LOL, but this is brilliant. Your work is superb on so many levels as Jerome has implied.

If "post truth" could usher in more art like this, then I am a follower!

This is simply brilliant.

Love it.
I do not call myself an artist, I just try to capture what I see.
If you need many words to describe what your picture means, it doesn't speak enough for itself.
my photos on flickr - here is the portion posted in OPF.
