The rainy days. A series of photographs taken at the flower market at Torvehallerne in Copenhagen. The flowers are seen through the see-through cover which is full of raindrops. This was not a planned, arranged photoshoot. I was lucky to have brought my good kamera when I saw the possibility of these images. And as I usually do I edit them in photoshop for the exact feeling I want. I tried them as light, pastel versions first but then realised I needed to go dark and with color on these images. And here they are, available in my print shop at Etsy. Link:https://www.etsy.com/se-en/shop/UlrikaEkblomPhoto
I’ve decided to offer some of my images in limited editions only. These will be in one or two different sizes depending on the image. I will sign and number each print and if delivered within Sweden I can also have them framed.
First out is this series of three. They go well together but work also very well on their own, so no need to buy all three if you only want one or two. This print is giclée printed on Hahnemühle photo rag paper 308 g. It is an acid free cotton paper.
The images are taken in houses from the seventies with the feeling of traveling back in time. It is also the feeling of being in control of time. This is one of many possibilities with photography the idea of being able to hold on to time, not having to let it slip away like in real life. The images also have a depth to them. Seeing through rooms and doorways, wanting to know what is on the other side, but needing to leave that to the viewers imagination.
I am also very much drawn to the colors. In these images pink, brown and yellow. I have worked in the editing with the colors and the light to convey the exact feeling of timelessness.
Jag vill visa några bilder jag har låtit montera bakom tjockt plexiglas. Jag brukar oftast göra mina bilder på ett matt väldigt vackert papper, men har vid tillfällen fått förfrågningar om plexiglasmontering. Så då gjorde jag det och gillar verkligen hur bilden går från tvådimensionell till tredimensionell.
Dessa går att beställa direkt av mig. Finns i olika storlekar. De finns en upphängningslist på baksidan som gör att bilden kommer en bit ut från väggen och är lätt att hänga upp.
I’ve wanted to make images with pink and white currants for a while. I’ve never seen them in the supermarket and I don’t grow them in my tiny garden either. So about two weeks ago I was thinking about these berries again and went in to town for errands. I made sure to pass by the Saturday market and was so lucky to find one woman who sold white and pink currants from her garden. I also got some gooseberries and red currants. When I finally had these beautiful, pearl, jewel like berries in my possession I started making images. I finally had to stop the image-making when the berries weren’t as fresh any longer. But I ended up with quite many images that are now in my Etsy print shop.
I also got to photograph the prints in a beautiful home. I have a few more images from this home that I will show soon too. But for now these. Please visit my print shop to see more of my new prints.
So many travels to Italy and many more to come. Probably not this year but maybe next. I have so many images from travels, both traveling for work and with my family. These are some of my favorite from the printshop. This is Italy to me, but in reality more food. I share one pizza from Naples with you here.
This time of the year when nature is soon to turn green everything is beige and brown. It is quiet beautiful and I wanted to make a series of images for my photo print shop in those same colors. I started by taking photos outdoors of the reed grass and the sallow tree and dried grass and dried flowers. Then I brought the dried beige and brown nature indoors, into my studio. I also took my collection of sea shells out of my closet and all the dried flowers from last summer. I shot most of the photographs against an old beige piece of newsprint paper for the right feeling. This newsprint paper has been with me for a very long time. I bought when I went to art school in Washington D.C. in the nineties for my drawing classes. So it has an old vintage touch to it and is probably not the same color as it it was when i bought it. But very good as a simple background for these photographs. To see all images go to my shop here. They are all digital and downloadable, but if someone would prefer an actual print shipped to them just tell me and I will do it.
So the theme is yellow and stretching out into orange. Because of easter and because it is finally spring and yellow and orange are most often happy colors. Trying to spread some happy feelings and energy with my images today. All of them in the print shopof course and linked and ready to click.
Food photography is something I love and know a lot about since I have been making food images for about fifteen years. I’ve made images for more than forty cook books and for many magazines. There aren’t yet that many in my web print shop, but I’m slowly adding more. Here are three of the food art prints and two of them are new to the shop. And remember if you see an image here on my website that is not in my web shop and you would like a print of it just let me know and I can arrange it.
