Nora Svendsgård and Emilia Fridholm from the Royal Swedish Ballet School joined me for a morning photoshoot this past Sunday. The weather forecast had promised morning mist, so we set our alarm clocks really early, and headed out to Gärdet in Stockholm to try and catch some of that misty magic. Unfortunately the weather gods changed their minds, and we did not get any morning mist, but we got a beautiful sunrise instead.
From Gärdet we headed to Rålambshovsparken and the skateboard ramps. There is one particular location which might not look like much at first, but I really like the light there. It was full of autumn leaves and some trash, but after a bit of cleaning we had our urban studio ready.
Next we headed to the amphi theatre at Rålambshovsparken. The seats for the audience were full of leaves, and there was a group of people training their dogs on the grass nearby, so we had the entire theatre for ourselves.
From there we continued north west, until we got to Smedsuddsbadet. The water level was lower than it had been last time I was there, and there was a rock that looked to be about a decimeter out in the water. Turns out it was a lot deeper, but Nora made it on top of it.
For the final set of photos we headed to a nearby tunnel which provided a nice balance of light and shadows. The previously almost clear sky was now filled with clouds, which gave a very soft light.
