#1 Jason Kummerfeldt og Edward Hopper

I’ve been trying to pick up photograhpy again after a few years dry spell. Which means diving deep into the abyss of Youtube, and not actually going out to shoot. Which led me, by chance and algorithm to Jason and his channel grainydays. Jason is a talented photographer and youtuber, and a very funny guy with a twisted sense of humour. Either that or he actually does crystal meth. In this video he talks about being inspired by the art of Edward Hopper, and how his use of light, composition, choice of motives and color in his paintings can be transfered to photography.

Late of the pier – Pstereofestivalen 2009

Took some pictures of Late of the pier for p3.no . Cool band, and even cooler fans that answered the invitation from the band to come up on stage and dance. And dance they did!

Motorpsycho – Pstereofestivalen 2009

It was a joy to watch Motorpsycho live again, they don’t play very often anymore. I had hoped to hear more of their golden back catalog, but at least they played Greener, one of my favorite songs. Check out come of the pictures I took for p3.no at their concert when they played the Pstereo festival.

Bastard Chairs

Photographer Michael Wolf has documented something as unusual chairs on his travels in China, or as he calls them: Bastard Chairs.

I am rather keen on making something like this tree-trunk chair for a future DIY project. I originally wanted to create a chair from a root, by I believe it will be easier to find somethinglike this:

But do check out his pictures for more interesting gems like this office chair with a home made foot created with a bucket and sement.


Playing with Iphone photo distortions

It turns out that my new Iphone creates some very interesting “effects” if you take pictures under certain conditions. Bright light plus movement as you take the picture makes the image warp, due to how the Iphone captures the image, almost like a scanner, calling for hours of future fun (see a few of my experiments below).

Wired has written about this, check out Take Distorted and Psychedelic iPhone Photos

There are even iPhone distortions Flickr groups (thanks to Retroper for the link)

Repair the planet

Pensilsharpeners for a better planet

If you have kids then you probably have a drawer full of pens and pencils, some good, some broken. In our house there are pencils spread out EVERYWHERE, I find a few every time we clean the house, and in the weirdest of places. I usually just dump them in this drawer, and pull it out whenever the kids want to draw.

But one day when I was home taking care of my daughter who had the flu, I decided to take stock, sort the broken from the usable, and sharpen them all.

I found some empty tomato cans to put them in, and sorted the pencils after their color family.
And lo and behold, would you believe that my three kids has kept this simple system in order for well over a month now! I’m so impressed with them!
