This past Monday morning I met up with Athena Nesti, Isabella Larsson and Li Johansson at Karlaplan in Stockholm for a ballet photoshoot. There is a beautiful big fountain in the centre of the circular pond that we were planning to use as a background. The sun was only lighting the top part of the water stream, but as the sun moved its rays reached further and further down and after half an hour or so it was illuminating the entire pillar of water.
Next we moved down into the pool, which allowed us to fill the entire background with the fountain and create a more immersed picture.
Unfortunately as we were in the middle of photographing the fountain suddenly stopped, turns out they had scheduled a pool cleaning and the workers were draining the pool and it would not be up and running again for the next few days. So we decided to take the subway and head out to Långholmen for a few photos there.
The 200mm lens is also a great portrait lens, so we decided to also do some posed and candid portraits.
We then decided to play around with a bit of video recording. Here are a few snaps I took during the filming under Västerbron.
The one minute video we put together:
Many thanks to Athena, Isabella and Li for a fun morning photoshoot!
