An earlier version of me

Photographer: Vidar Golden

Hello everybody.

I am a woman, age 52. The last 8 years I have been to "try-and-fail-photo-school" on my own. And I am still. :-) After taking about "1 million" pictures, I am tired of too much "fail", and search for more technical wisdom on internet. If I am very lucky, in Januar, I may get 6 months school, private teaching, through Skype. It is a matter of money. And I am very, very hungry. Every day, 3 - xx hours, and more, I practice either photographing or editing.

If any photographer on the forum who look at my pics, please, if you want to, I would love to get critic that will improve me....and maybe you also give me a challenge?

My English is not very good, so I often use Google translate to translate articles and messages. Together with my English-knowledge, and Google-translate that does not always do the translate too well, I understand the most.

White balance with the choice of RAW - a day when even the cat remained inside.

Posted on August 31, 2011 at 8:11pm 2 Comments

After being tipped to use the white balance "Flash" - outdoor, whatever light there is, I have begun to try this.

Since there was not so much different light (shadows/sun/etc.) out when the photos were taken, I have taken 3 pictures… Continue

I am, for the time beeing, in looooove with RAW - You can see that on my blog, with Googles (not very high quality yet) translate of my blog into English.
