I don't think I will post any new photos for a while. I'm very busy with my music. I'm the lead vocalist of a band called Diamondback (www.myspace.com/diamondbackmetal) and I have another project on the side with the lead guitarist Daniel Andersson called Smothered (www.myspace.com/smothered) wich is Death Metal and more technical and exteme compared to Diamondback. I'm constantly coming up with new riffs and trying to write lyrics and rehearsing with Diamondback for upcoming shows so I just don't have the time to photograph just now. Hope you all had an awesome summer. Autumn is coming... Busy busy busy!

Been trying to find more insects to photograph... I think THAT is my real passion with macro photography. Capturing the details of these little exo-skelleton wearing aliens that you can't really see with the naked eye. Some of my latest photos I've uploaded feature some of those bugs I've been able to get a descent shot of. They are a pain in the ass to say the least. They always move around and you're lucky if they sit still for 2 seconds and by the time you've pressed the button they've flied or ran off to somewhere else...

I had some good luck with a wosp who was looking pretty tired from flying in the rain and was chilling out on a flower i have on my balcony. To get a descent shot of a bug you have to do it handheld... forget tripods, you have to have your camera ultra mobile... And lighting can be a problem outside, especially in bad weather, because the shutterspeed is so low from the lack of light... I'm always trying to get away from the ISO bermuda triangle but sometimes it's hard... Oh well.. Stay tuned for more insect photos from me soon.

I got my camera back from service, it's like new, they fixed everything. And just in time because I've got that photography urge back... It's an urge I've been missing because I've had shitloads to do lately. Anyways you'll be seeing more uploads from me in the near future!

Just recently my camera has started to act strangely. For instance, the inbuilt stabilizer has stopped working and does not compensate when taking hadheld photos (usualy lenses have anti-shake stabilizers bit the sony a-300 has it inbuild in the actual camera module). Another thing I noticed was with the kit lens, the lens that came in the box (called SAL1780 I think), a 17-80mm standard zoom lens wich is pretty crap to zoom with but the wide angle photos turn out pretty sharp... Nothing compared to my macrolens though... anyhow, for some reason when photographing fully zoomed the sensor is not center, it's like a millimeter of to left, wich is very irritating. So it took it back to the store so they can send it to service. Fingers crossed they fix everything. If no I'm gonna demand my money back.

I've been really bad at updating recently. I've had alot to do since I got fulltime employed and trying to write lyrics for my band. The music seems more closer to me now than photography but me and my girlfriend went on a walk with our cameras the other day and took some photos. I hope you enjoy them, and I will try to upload photos more frequently!

Take care and drive safely!

It feels like I'm getting the hang of this HDR technique. It's always fun to discover a new style of editing and especially if it's one that is hard to master. And it did take me a while untill I started getting decent results on my test photos, but I think I got it all worked out now on how to do a basic HDR edit on a photo. Here's hoping. And hope you like them.

Well, happy new year everybody. I know I'm a bit late saying so but better late than never. It's a new year and a new start and I'm going to use everythinge new that I have learned in photography and use it well. I have uploaded some new photos that I have taken, both new and old. I was very happy to find some pictures that I thought I had lost and uploaded them today. Those photos are a bit old but I really want to share them with you guys. Hope you like them. It's finally a proper winter here in Sweden and we have snow and in between 0 to -5 degrees celsius. Me and my friend Leon are going to combine our skills of videocapture and photography to make something fun. We are also going to start a band and play experimental music. Very progressive and crossover... It could be anything from Muse to Radiohead to Metallica and even some Tool.

Hope this year is prosperous for all of you.

Take care and drive safley.

I'm getting sooooooo tired of all the Obama drawings... I'll just leave it at that. It doesn't matter if the American president is black, white, woman or male, the world is still f*cked. It's just a poor atempt at restoring USA's lost dignity for the rest of the world.

Anyways I put up some new pictures and have picked up a pretty nice routine at uploading interesting pictures that I take. Most of these pictures are taken from my own home but I do photograph alot when I go somewhere... My tripod is in the trashcan because the Hama piece of shit tripod I bought was really worth 300 SEK (about $25)... In other words, no money to spend on a tripod. I have started to save up for a proper Manfrotto tripod. I'll buy one early in the new year.

Until next time boys and ghouls...

After a hellish weekend of stress and hard work I'm trying to chill out after I've been at my mom and dads place to set up my dads new computer. It all went well but I'm having real problems winding down from the weekend...  I still feel abit stressed. Dunno why really, must just be cuz of the money situation, you see, my boss did'nt pay me for the extra hours I put in wich sort of pisses me off since it isn't the first time he has dome something wrong and it affects me. I bought myself a book on Macro Photography that I'm going to learn inside and out. Yesterdays photosession went really well if the external lighting and the plant. Ofcourse I sprayed water on it for effect. Laters all.

So I went and got myself a deviantART account. Lets see where this leads to. I will be uploading pictures as much as I can and I hope you enjoy then. I have been an amature photographer since September 2008, so this whole thing is very very new for me. But I hope to inspire you and find some inspiring people here. Comments on my photos are welcome.
