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.
I’m writing this post in Swedish with an English version at the end.
Det här bilderna har jag gjort för Nina Hermansens bok Baka på 30 minuter. Så mycket goda fantastiska bakverk som Nina bakat och jag sedan gjort bilder av. Nina går upp tidigt som en riktig bagare så där vid kl 03 och bakar samma dag som vi har fotografering. Väldigt imponerande. Jag vill berätta lite om hur boken kom till.
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. Link to shop here and in the images in this post or click the print shop button on the top right side.
I also want to let you know I have a not so frequent newsletter to sign up to if you would like updates from my print shop. Welcome to sign up in the yellow subscribe box to the right! Thank you so much!
When I started making these images I had an idea that I wanted to shape what I could find of wild flowers into abstract shapes. Some geometric and some towards the organic. Controlling the shapes as much as possible with living flowers. I also wanted the images to add color to a home or a space. In a discreet way with a smaller print or as a statement piece with the large format print. The images are photographed with a Hasselblad, a very high quality camera. This high quality, high resolution make the images very detailed in a large print when looking close. When looking at the print farther away it is about the shape and color.
