Yesterday at the class we practices on panorama photo with and without flash. With the flash we needed to change the settings on the camera, from 1:a light to 2:a light. The reason is 2:a light high light the room in different time.
Then, we tried to take the photo without the light, than we needed to decrease the F to 1/8 or something and focus on our teacher before he started to walk.
I have never done this sort of photos before. Therefore I it was fun, but I am not sure I can do it again.
So, I went around Stockholm yesterday and asked my self, what is Stockholm. Is it the people, sun. tress and much more. Than I felt, I can not take sneaky pictures on people. On the buildings we have the pretty decorations on many buildings, therefore I thought why can not I take photos on the decorations?
Today, in the class I we are going to do some photoshop.
During the event at Kungsträdgården in the end of May. My family were there too to watch the show. Well, a problem was the food trucks were too less compare to the amount of people. So, in the end my dad and brother stod in a cue for more than an hour to get a plate full with food (see photo). I do not know how the manage to wait to so long. In my case I would have given up and go to Max nexto to Kungsträdgården. However, they were there and during the show, my brother was in the food cue and my dad went to the stage to take photos. Such a lovely family I have. Also, I did request my brother to take a photo on this plate, so he did.
The new homework is to take 3-5 photos and present “my Stockholm”, but what is my Stockholm. I do not know, yet. Also, I can not say I want to go out to take photos due to the weather.
But what is Stockholm for me?
- Espresso house
- My family
- My apartment
- Few people
We are not allowed to take photos on the city hall, because we have seen photos on the City hall too many times.
Yesterday, I met up a friend and we took a walk to Slussen and then headed home to cook and bake.
For dinner we made dumplings (yea, I am very weak for dumplings) then we made rhubarb pie. The rhubarbs for this year are incredible.
I know, the color is not right on the photo, but I can not really change.. But the dough is easy to make.
- 2 dl floor
- 100 g of butter
- 1 tablespoon of suggar
Mix everything with your fingers and then spread the dough over the rhubarbs, appels or anything form of fruits. The oven tempratur is 225 degreese and let the pie be in the oven for 30 mintues.
So, our teacher said, good photo but the photo could have been even better with the light. Well, yes, of course the photo could have been better. But, in the end when I was alone with the aluminum and the smell of banana pancake, was not easy to control the hunger therefore I manage to take only10-15 photos.
In the end, the photo did turn out better than I thought. However, the teacher recommend me to work more on the light and to move the table more near to the window. On the other side, who has the energy to move a table at 7:45 in the morning to take good photos?.. A kind of stupid question, anyone who is into photography would have moved the table and so on.
Then in the class, we started to use photoshop. I have never used that program before, but to play around was fun. Till the time I needed to call on the teacher to help me to find a setting or so. Also, to work on Mac and not PC is little different and confusing.
This was my dinner yesterday, at that time I tried to use white paper. More or less, chicken, garlic, onion, green pease and mastured seeds.
I decided to try to make banana pancake for the first time. The recipes I had a look on, had vanilla sugar in the mixture. The mixture is already sweet due to the banana and to add vanilla sugar make the mixture even sweeter. Therefore I decided to skip he vanilla sugar.
So in the end my mixture was made of
To add extra and freshness I had banana and apple on the side. Also, the problem is the pancake was a bit greyish, however, the pancake did taste good.
I am at home after a long day.
Well, at the photo class we went through the basic things with the camera. The teacher is a great, he take it very easily and explain and explain. We practiced to take photos on each other and then we started to think more about the light and the background.
After the class we got two home works. The first one was a jump picture outside the nature, on top of that with a good background. So, I met up my friend and requested him to jump for me, thankfully he did not say no. However, we took maybe 10 photos, and some were more okay then others.
The other one is to take a photo on our breakfast. This homework is based on the light. I have never really been working with the light before, therefore it is going to be tricky. However, I have to buy my breakfast items today, because I ran out on oat, milk, soured milk, fruits everything! Therefore I might try to make tomorrows’ breakfast more fancy than normal. Let’s see.
So, todays’ plan is:
photo class from 9-12 am, then I have to go to the office to take a photo for our cards at 1:33. After the photo I am meeting up a new friend at slussen. We will just go to a café at hang out. Well, then at 5:30-6:30 I have to be at the gym. At the gym, I have booked a bodypump class. After 2 weeks without any bodypumpclass means, I will be very weak. However, I think I will mange the class and sweat a lot.
However, I will look like a bag lady with 2 bags, one is a bigger one from the Golden city and the other one is a small black bag from Longchamp for my camera.
Because of the long day, I have to carry with me the camera, gym clothes, food and water. Like, this going to be long day. But, I can not wait to be in the class room and for the first time after ages learn more in creative subject!
Photo on Stockholm, Well, I really miss the sunny weather and the heat. We have not had sun for 5 days. But, may be today we will get sun!
When I visited India during December, my friends and I went to Forest Essentials store in Pune. I would say the store is little bit a like Bodyshop, but better. At least the store provide a luxury feeling. In the store I bought body oil and a lip bomb. However, at the Mumbai’s airport, I had around 3000 rupees left and needed to spend them. So, once again I visited the store and found this lovely cream. The cream has a rich sense of roses. But, when I passed the security check, they needed to test the cream and run a scanner. During that time I was not sure if they would say, sorry ma’am you can not bring the cream on the plane. Well, as it turn out, I got the cream to Sweden.
The box, is really sweet and might be good to keep it with my perfume.
I have had this as an aim to run 1 km in 5 minutes. Therefore, I pressed myself today to run 6 km in 30 minutes. Guess what, I did it. I made it. Freaking awesome feeling. To be able to reach the aim. However, I can say I have to focus on my stomach now, because after 5 km I felt I wanted to quite. The last km was not easy, but I managed it. After the run I took a much slower ran and then powerwalk. So, in total the time on the cardio machine was over 50 minutes. But, it was so worth it. Because, I was able to be at the gym before 8 pm (not normal nowadays).
Tomorrow, my summer course starting, which will be kind of interesting. A photo course, so hopefully I will be able to take better photos after this. Let us hope.
