A year of photoblogging

29 December, 2011

Winter photography from my home town. More winter photos from this year: 1. 2. 3. 

I started blogging last December, without being exactly sure about what my blog should include. I was sure about one thing: I wanted to share my progress in photography and painting with people "out there". It turned out to be a lot harder then I imagined, since I didn't have a clue about how to to get in touch with people who would be interested in seeing my photos or reading what I had to say.

Spring photography from Bergen: 1. 2. 3. 4. 

Spring in Bergen is not an easy environment for finding beautiful motives. It's mostly rainy, cloudy and dark. Through the year I've had a Panasonic LX-3 camera with me everywhere. It's such a light and easy camera. I started doing analog photography, and using my old Canon EOS3000. In late spring I acquired a Panasonic Lumix GF-2, plus two lenses.

More photos from Marbella, Alhambra, Valencia: 1. 2 and Rome: 1. 2. 

Traveling to Marbella, Alhambra, Valencia and Rome this year, gave me a lot of photographic opportunities, and the itch for travelling. During the summer I also got an obsession about my Mom's garden and I took tons of photos there. In the meantime my blog shifted toward becoming more of a diary. I really felt that I had a lot more to say than only what my photos said. I was lucky to find some great bloggers and to meet you guys and become inspired by all your great creative work! My creative progress wouldn't have been the same without so much kind support from each and everyone of you.

I had my analog shots developed in October, and although I was a little disappointed with the quality of the  Lomography films, some of the shots turned out to be beautiful. You will definitely see more analog photos on this blog next year.

I have so many photographic adventures to look forward to for the new year. I will definitely travel more, I will do this course. I'm not sure what to start with, but I think doing the course would be a good idea. Portrait photography is definitely a challenge for me, so this will be my priority for the new year as well.

Have you got any creative plans for the new year? Any new projects or hobbies that you want to start doing?


  1. I have loved seeing your photography adventures... so inspiring :)

    I really want to do a photography course next year.. that one looks very interesting! I had a look at it and got a bit confused as to whether it's free... ?

    Looking forward to seeing what you get up to next year :)

    ***Happy New Year***

  2. it's funny to look back over blogs and see how they've evolved and become something different. I am starting to get on board with the idea of treating mine like a journal, rather than just a photoblog. Let's see how we both progress in 2012!

  3. I love the evolution of your blog and that I could be part of it's sweet beginnings in the first year! Your photos are stunning as always!

  4. that winter photo is really lovely. i need to stop being afraid of the winter and get out there and take some pictures!

  5. I'm so excited to follow your blog this year to see all of the new and exciting things that you are going to be doing! I really hope to start taking more film photos (inspired by you!) and every time I get together with friends, I want to take a group photo!

  6. Those are really lovely photos, keep it up.
