Photo journal no 13: winter by the lake

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!

Trying out new photography prints in my home

Trying some of my new prints in my home. For close-ups go to previous post https://www.ulrikaekblom.se/blue-and-purple-tones-of-the-print-shop/ or my printshop https://www.etsy.com/se-en/shop/UlrikaEkblomPhoto

blue and purple tones of the print shop

There used to be two different print shops. One for nature/flowers photography and one for travel. Now everything is in the same shop. One way to use the images on a wall is to combine the blue and purple tones. Go to https://www.etsy.com/se-en/shop/UlrikaEkblomPhoto and see all the images!

When you buy 3 or more you get 20 % off. Code is 20for3.

my office space in the studio

This is my office space in the studio, located in Uppsala, Sweden. I recently painted the wall behind the desk green. The desk is actually my mother-in-law’s, bought new in the seventies by her and my father-in-law. She has no space for it since she moved and it looks really good in my studio. I love the soft green color on the wall and how it works with my nature and flower art prints. I also love the seventies chair and the old concrete floor and the old radiator and the beautiful window. Having my nature prints around me like this when I work makes me see what the next step in my work process is. Take a look into my shop to see all images and all the new ones. http://ulrikaekblomphotography.tictail.com

new in the printshop and a scholarship

(scroll down for English)

Lite i taget gör jag förändringar i mitt arbete som fotograf. Jag vill jobba mer med fotokonst, prints att ha på väggen. I början av sommaren fick jag ett stipendium av Sveriges författarfond. Det gjorde mig väldigt glad och har gjort det möjligt för mig att under hösten lägga mer tid på mina egna bildidéer. Det tar väldigt lång tid att komma in i att jobba med något nytt, speciellt om man redan har det ganska bra med det man redan håller på med. Att ha möjligheten att ha mer sammanhållande tid gör att jag utvecklas och kommer vidare på ett helt annat sätt med mina egen bilder än om jag hela tiden har massor av andra uppdrag som jag avbryter med. Jag har upptäckt att vilka bilder som gör sig som print på väggen skiljer sig från bilder som passar i böcker, någon gång ibland kan en bild funka för båda. Det känns spännande och mer nytt än vad jag trodde, det är nästan som att börja om från början. I varje fall vad gäller kontakter. Jag har inte samma kontakter i fotokonst/print branschen som jag har i matfotobranschen, än i varje fall. Titta väldigt gärna in i min shop med natur/växtbilder!     ulrikaekblomphotography.tictail.co

I’m slowly making changes in my work as a photographer I want to work more with photo art, more artistic. A scholarship I was very happy to receive in the beginning of the summer has made that even more possible for me. So I have since summer been working quiet a lot with images for my printshop. I’ve made time for me to work with my photography ideas. This takes time and I have noticed that if I have more time and time that is not interrupted by other projects I get further in my thinking and I get more done.  Making pieces as wall art is different from making it for books or magazines, though an image sometimes works for both. It feels excitingly new to me, but it also feels a little bit like I am starting from the beginning at least contact wise. I don’t have the same connections as I do in the food photography business yet. Take a look at all my botanical images in my shop! ulrikaekblomphotography.tictail.com

Photo journal no 5: early summer in Copenhagen

I visited Copenhagen a few days last week. I ended up spending many hours in the Botanical Gardens again. This time very warm and so much in bloom. The peonies, the rhododendrons, azaleas, wisteria and so much more about to bloom. What a peaceful, beautiful place in the middle of the otherwise busy Copenhagen.
