blue and purple tones of the print 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! Continue reading

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. https://ulrikaekblomphoto.patternbyetsy.com Continue reading

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!     https://ulrikaekblomphoto.patternbyetsy.com Continue reading

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. Continue reading
