Recently I decided that I wanted to publish in both English and Norwegian to make sure that I reach as wide an audience as possible. And working with setting up the Norwegian site, I have looked through some of my older images. And there really is some images that I truly like. So today I’m starting ThrowbackThursday off with a few of images from my first years with a DSLR.
I got my first DSLR as a gift from my wife back in 2010. It was a Canon EOS 1000D, and it came with a 18-55mm kit lense. The camera opened a new world to me, and I really loved it.
Around the same time as I got the camera, we also picked up our puppy Zelda. So naturally there was a lot of images of her. I didn’t know what I was doing yet, but I was eager to capture memories of this amazing little fur ball that we loved so much. Here’s one from one of our first hikes in the woods of Oslo. Not quite sharp, but still an image that I really love.
My skills developed over the next few months and in 2011 I got more and more into landscapes. I had not yet figured out the composition or when to capture the best light, and my post production skills were off, but I still got this one image that I come back to every now and then. It might have been the experience of the hike, but I just can’t seem to let this one go. I have revisited and edited this later. Gotten rid of the crooked horizon and such. But here is the original image straight out of camera.
The summer of 2012 the wife and I had been living for six months in the cold mountain area of Tynset. For the first four months we did not have a car, so we walked about three kilometres each way, with huge backpacks on our backs, to do our grocery shopping. All our spare time we spent hiking or skiing. Our summer vacation therefor naturally consisted of hiking, but now in the northwestern part of Norway, closer to where I grew up. The majestic nature gave us a lot of beautiful hikes, and I got to photograph a lot. Here’s some favourites from a hike to Liavarden.
2013 was a difficult year when it came to photography. I really didn’t figure out why, but my images were all lacking something this year. I didn’t feel I progressed. So when I early December sat down and flipped through my images, I was rather disappointed with myself. Getting a great shoot on Christmas Day that year therefore was very welcomed. And here is one of my favourite shots from the shoot at beautiful Flø.
That’s it for today. I hope you liked this trip down memory lane. If you did, make sure to hit the like button and subscribe so you don’t miss out on more images from 2014-2018 in the next ThrowbackThursday post. I wish you all the very best of weekends, tomorrow is Friday you know:)
