A Morning in May

This past Saturday I took the train for the first time since the beginning of March and travelled to Humlegården in Stockholm to meet up with Lisa Scharp, Alma Faringer Hultberg och Nathalie Wiberg for a morning dance photoshoot. My plan was to use the alley in the park but there was a construction site at the end of it, so instead we decided to take a few photos among the trees and flowers before going to nearby steps.

Nathalie Wiberg found some beautiful rhododendron bushes. The sky was partly covered with clouds. We had two spots for Nathalie, one that worked great when the sun was out, and this which looked better when the sun was behind clouds. Let’s just say there was a bit of running back and forth as the sun ducked in and out of the cloud cover.

Nathalie Wiberg. This and the next few photos looked more atmospheric and moody in black and white. The keen observer might notice that the focusing plane is tilted into the plane of the image, making Nathalie’s legs blurry.

Lisa Scharp. Again I dialled up the tilt-shift on the lens quite high, resulting in this band of sharpness in the middle of the image.

We took the train out to Näsbypark, had a bit to eat and then continued with Part II of the photoshoot which has its’ own blog post.
