In the early 90's, I worked for a professional photographer, helping out in the dark room. During that time I learned a lot about photographing. However, I felt that I never managed to take pictures of humans (Wedding photos etc). That type of photos is better done by others.
I enjoy being out in the nature and is easily inspired by improvised jazz and dark metal music. When being inspired and I want to take a photo based on an idea, I feel that the photo or the series of photos must have a title. Often the photo is just being stored on the memory card, while I need long periods of time to figure out the right title. And yes… I lead the observer of the photo: So what!...
I don't have thousands of pictures stored either. Sometimes I have a title ready for a photo and a basic concept of what type of photo I want to take. I find myself constantly deleting photos during the process, letting my gut-feeling guide my choices.
I like the dark and the heavy and to a certain degree the melancholy. If I manage to communicate that, then I'm satisfied. I am very grateful that Whispering Photography gives me this opportunity as this months guest photographer.
