    Been playing with my camera...

    I've taken a couple of new pictures in the last few days and weeks. They've been uploaded to the Photo Gallery (Click on the pic to go to full size version in the Gallery):

    Hey Frederik,

    These are cool pictures. It's nice to finally hear from you. Hope you're doing okay and that you will be seen more often in your own Forum.

    Splendid pictures, Frederik.
    What kind of camera are you using for these shots?

    Like the "glowing organ console" too ... isn't that the organ you bought for your home?

    Thanks Mat, Margaret and Lars

    Mat, I plan on being much more on the forum from now on - though you'll have to forgive certain periods of time when I may not be able to (especially when a deadline lurks ).

    Lars, I bought a Canon 400D SLR camera earlier this year. It's a very nice camera.

    The "glowing organ" is indeed my home organ. I had some fun with a simple photoshop filter on that one:

    Frederik - tak!

    I also, have a newish SLR digital camera and am thrilled to bits, enjoy and thanks for sharing and thanks for occasionally dropping in and casting your eyes over your adoring subjects.
    I'm not an atheist and I don't think I can call myself a pantheist. We are in the position of a little child entering a huge library filled with books in many different languages. The child knows someone must have written those books. It does not know how. The child dimly suspects a mysterious order in the arrangement of the books but doesn't know what it is. That, it seems to me, is the attitude of even the most intelligent human being toward God.

    Photography too!!!

    Was just interrupted by lunch.
    So here goes again.
    Dear Frederik:
    What a talented soul you are! Composing, performing, conducting - now photography, or have you been at that for a while too?

    My interest is combining photos and video clips with music to create and enhance mood or emotion within a certain theme. Combining different media seem to enhance the overall effect. Well, I guess there's nothing new about that! Picking appropriate music is half the battle.

    My first post on a new thread just a few days ago was an example of the above - in this case made entirely with still shots - (to restrict size) though I usually combine video clips with stills. It's small because at the time I was not aware of allowable attachment size. The music for the video Day's End was by Einojuhani Rautavara who you must know very well - as you may also the music itself. I find Finzi's music well suited too - perhaps because what I do tends to be reflective - though storms, water falls and rushing rivers make great subjects too.

    I'm lusting after a 9MP Lumix DMC TZ5 because it's shirt-pocket sized, 10X optical zoom, wide angle (28mm) stabiized and takes "high definition" video - twice the video resolution of my present camera. Smallness is a major attraction because it allows one to take videos serruptitiously. I take a lot of those in London where we go every April mostly for music. Most people think its just a point and shoot camera if they notice it at all.

    I didn't pick up anything about the camera you're usuing.

    Thanks for opening up a world of interests and making them so accessible.
    Best wishes,

    Maybe music and photography go together - I've been a phot nut ever since high school. And in those days, you had to LEARN what apertures and shutter speeds did. Most of these types nowadays don't know an aperture from the iris of an eye - and don't want to bother learning.

    That "glowing console" had to be a Photoshop job - something I'm not terribly taken with. But to each his/her own.

    My curent DSLR goes back a ways - it's a Konica-Minolta (remember them?) 7D. But I have several other cameras, including a Leica M4-2.

    I have, at least up until digital, always been pretty much a color slide person. In fact at one time I used to do most of my own processing. Never did it with color printing, though. I still have a bunch of stuff for black & white developing/printing, enlarger and all. Needless to say, it doesn't get much use anymore.

    As I'm sure you are aware, there are several worthwhile photo websites - Flickr. etc. Happy shooting.

    Great photos! I think this helps prove my theory of belief that a person who is good at one form of art will also be found to be good at at least one more or can easily learn and become good at another or more. Art talent seems to come in clusters. It holds true for many people I have come to know.
