And the winner is..

I took this photo a  couple of days ago, but only posted it today on Instagram. I don’t know if I will ever call myself a photographer, but I can truly say that I have learned so much this week from the @jkpg Instagram assignment. The coolest feeling is when I go through the photos in my phone after some session and I come across one that stands out from the others. Immediately I get the gut feeling that this photo is special in its balance, colors, symmetry etc. It’s also fascinating to learn which photos can and which ones cannot be worked on with filters, color dynamics etc to transform from rather dull 2 dimensional pics to vivid and cool images. 

The above photo didn’t need much correction at all. Thanks to the pretty well functioning hdr function in my phone, the contrast an dynamics turned out pretty nicely “out of the box”. 

After the week of posting pics for the @jkpg account this pic is the one was the most “liked”.. so I guess in that way it was kind of the winner of the week. 

Under the clear blue moon sky

Could not resist setting up the “moon photo studio” again. My plan this time was to film the moon, which was possible actually. But the result was not as interesting as I might have thought. Something really cool happened though when I looked through the binoculars during setting up. An airliner crossed the line of vision and drew a visual black line straight through the moon. That would have been cool to catch on film, but of course it was just before I had set the camera up ^^

Anyways, I think that this is just about how good a shot I can get of the moon with my mobile camera. But I must say I am pretty happy. Taking a photo of the moon kind of always was a bit of a dream to me. Don’t know why, but i guess it’s because I find outer space very fascinating. And seeing the actual rocks and irregularities of the moon through the binoculars, gives evidence to the brain that planets and space and stuff is for real, and not a conspiracy or science fiction. 

See you later fancy people
