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.

A mushroom specialist

My flickr friend Lasse Christensen has a way with fungus imagery. He captures the light, the shapes and the colors incredibly well - and the images are pin sharp, too! This is technically challenging photography for sure. I find his images very inspirational, and I hope to learn something from studying them closely. Lasse is certainly a mushroom specialist and a great photographer.


Enter Autumn


It is September and a new season is clearly upon us. Yesterday afternoon I went for a stroll to our local pond looking for motives, and there were plenty around. Fungus abounded on the ground, the ducklets had grown to almost full size, the last flowers of the season bowed their heads and everything had a layer of summer's end to it. I'm thinking about making that pond the center of a project I'd like to try, something in the line of a photo a week throughout the year or something. One each day is far too ambitious, I would never find time for that.

I made a few more pictures that I liked yesterday. These images are available in full view in my portfolio galleries close-up and close-up b&w. If you click on the thumbnails below, you'll get a large view here as well. The one with the mushrooms has been processed with a cross-processing preset to add more warmth to the colors.
