Some more of the sets of two, all linked to the shop.
I’ve been playing around with my prints from the Print Shop and paired them two and two. It’s a lot of fun because it can change the feeling of the photo, it becomes something new. When pairing images you can think in colors, contrasting or in harmony with each other. You can think a theme, or a matching light. There are many ways to do it. I have small prints of all my work so I combine them in real life to see what I like. After that I combine them in photoshop. Here are a few of them all linked to the shop.
A few years ago, not that many, in the beginning of the summer I traveled to Napoli in Italy. On my third day in Napoli I and the group I traveled with went on a day trip to the Sorrento Peninsula and the tiny village of Massa Lubrense where we had lunch. The restaurant is Lo Scoglio. A family run restaurant where they grow all their own vegetables and get their fish and seafood in the ocean just outside the restaurant. The food and the surroundings I will never forget and this is what it looks like.
After editing these images for this post I had to add some of the them to my print shop.
I’m lucky to live close to a lake surrounded by beautiful nature. I take lots of walks and lots of photos here. A great thing about photographing nature (apart from it being so beautiful) is that it changes what it looks like all the time. The same tree, lake, shrubbery look different depending on light, season, time of day, snow, dry or wet, close up or far away and so many other things. So there are endless of images to make from the same place in nature if you’d be happy to stay in one place. All images in this post are taken around the lake close to my home in the winter. This is not what winter looks like right now. At this moment winter is warm and only brown and grey no white, which is of course also beautiful. I will show the brown and grey nature by the lake another day. These winter images are all now in my print shop. All images are linked to the shop or go here. Please take a look!
Almost exactly a year ago I traveled to the Greek island of Crete with a team of very talented and creative women. During a week we produced a cookbook with food cooked by the loveliest Cretan women. (More about the book in an earlier post, go here.) I shot lots and lots and many of the photos are printed in the book. I’ve looked through all images I shot again. Somehow my mind brings back strong memories of a trip a year later. Usually also only the good parts, making me want to go again. Trips are usually mostly good and so was this one. I’ve chosen some new images and edited them to reflect what my feeling of this trip is now a year later. (Some of the photos from Crete are already in my printshop, see a post about that here.)
A few new cookbooks I’ve been working on were recently published. These images are from Zeina’s Green Kitchen by Zeina Mourtada. We decided on a colourful look for this book as we did for her first book. She loves color and so do I and it just goes really well with her food and who she is. She has a very popular instagram account @zeinaskitchen and a popular food website www.zeinaskitchen.se and the book is for sale here (all in Swedish).
