Sweden 2022

I have printed and framed a selection of photos from my corona walks. Most motives are local, taken within 10 minutes of where I live. Last year I did framed prints for our own walls, this year I was thinking it could be fun to see if I could sell some.

I like the process of composing a shot. I do a bit of editing afterwards but most of the magic happens when I search out the motive and move around to find the optimal angle and wait for the sun to come out or the objects to move to where I want them. When I’m composing I’m very much living in the moment: I’m in the “zone” or the flow state where I’m 100% focused on the here and now.

Sometimes I know when I press the shutter that this will be a great picture, sometimes it takes a little editing and a little time to grow. Sometimes what I think will be a great shot actually isn’t. But most fascinating is that while there are guidelines to follow for how to compose (foreground, mid-ground, background; the magic 1/3 cuts), they are only guidelines, not laws: What matters in the end is the final picture: While it can be hard to explain exactly why a picture is good, most people will look at a picture and agree that this is a great picture.
