North and South

I grew up on the north side of Stockholm, and must admit that I do not visit the south parts of Stockholm all that often. Yesterday I did a photoshoot with Olivia Borre and Li Johansson from the Royal Swedish Ballet School. We started early in the morning at Mariatorget in the south, and finished at Brunkebergstunnel in the north.

When photographing early in the morning or late in the evening it is often a good idea to have bright clothes, as it reflects more lights. If your dancer instead wears darker clothes, you could try and silhouette her against the sky.

We asked to borrow this little dog lady for a photo, but she was in heat, and got very interested in a male dog that approached.
This old gentleman dog was more relaxed, but he and his dog friend (not pictured) was more interested in the treats than in properly posing for us.

We slowly made our way north, and on the way we stopped to take some photos by the water near Gamla Stan’s subway station. There has been many overcast weekends, and it makes such a difference when the sun is out, so you want to make the most of it.

For the final set of photos we headed to Brunkebergstunneln.
