I'm Ingunn. This blog is about learning to make photos instead of just taking them. This is where I collect and express ideas and thoughts, and sometimes I might get sidetracked, too! There is so much to be learned. I have an urge for making life better, simpler and tastier. My picture galleries are in the sections travel and portfolio. I write in English, but I am Norwegian, and comments are most welcome in both languages.

Project | Pond study, February


Ok, I admit it, it isn't February anymore, and neither is the photograph in this post taken during last month. Time passed so quickly and before I knew it, it was March. But winter still holds the pond in a quite firm grasp, although this winter has been a lot more gentle than the two previous ones. I suspect that when I return in the beginning of April, there will be no more ice on the water, and slowly life will emerge in the pond once again. 

Keeping up with my pond study during the winter months proved to be harder than I imagined before I started. I don't feel that the images are good enough - what I want is to catch the mood, the feel about the place, something I only partly have achieved. But the place seems somewhat dead in the images, and I still feel that after the initial lucky shoot, I have only made bland copies. I guess I just have to do the work.

Interested in more pond study images? Take a look in my project gallery!

Focal width 28mm, ISO 200, aperture f/18 and shutter speed 1/50
