youth portrait

This is the season for youth portraits in Norway, as we are heading for “confirmation season”/konfirmasjonsesongen.
3 years ago, I took her sister’s photos, and now it was Erle who is up for confirmation. I decided to try a totally new location in Trondheim, at least new to me. We headed for the golf course, which lucky for us is not open yet…I like the landscape and curves, and there are some other buildings on site available.
The light was kind of tricky, being in the middle of the day (Easter Monday), and my starting point in photoshop was this (not extremely fantastic):

Kind of cool (or at least better) in just a few minutes of working. The final image will be something like this:

Cold & Rain

Ever since my last shoot with Elisabeth Bolme, before she entered the fitness competitions (Sandefjord Open and Oslo GP), we had planned to do something just after stage weekend.
Yesterday, we headed for a local forest next to where I live. We actually built a shed, using that as a changing room…needless to say, this was a cold experience for her, and we went for effectiveness! Here are a few…
