This past Sunday Morning I met up with Aura Tiira, Saga Fogelberg and Isabella Madsen for a dance photoshoot on Skeppsholmen in Stockholm. Clear blue skies and a forecast for temperatures up to 25C, the summer weather was finally here. To handle the sunlight and the hard shadows in the photos I had brought with me a reflector. Again I had the tilt-shift 85mm lens on the camera, but this time I used the tilt function very sparingly.
After a series of photos at Västra Brobänken we slowly made our way around the island until we arrived at Östra Brobänken where there is a brick structure without a roof.
It was quite warm, and our water supply war running low so we stopped for lunch Hotel Skeppsholmen before continuing to Kastellholmen. These photos might look free of people but during the second half of the photoshoot there were a lot more people walking around, but people were quite considerate and stopped for a moment or walked behind us.
The poem that inspired the blog post name:
Sydämeni on kauneinta maailmassa.
Se on pyhä.
Kuka ikänä sen näkee,
säteilköön sen loistoa.
Sydämeni on kevyt kuin lintu,
maan päällä ei ole hauraampaa esinettä.
By Edith Södergran
On the way back we stopped at one last location for a set of photos. As we were getting ready to photograph a man with two kids come up to us and ask if anyone of us had lost a mobile phone, which it turned out we had. Many thanks to the friendly stranger and his kids. We gave the kid who found the phone some money for an ice cream.
