My inspiration and creative process.

Inspiration and the creative process comes in many shapes and forms. There are many parts involved and it is definitely not a straight line that I follow, many ideas come in short brief aha-moments when I’m present in the moment. It can be a beautiful beam of light or a shiny surface reflection that catches my eye, who creates the most fantastic ideas or inspiration. These are the moments that I collect and sort through before a photography session or start a new series of work.

I have notebooks with text and sketches laying around that I can go back to when I feel I’m running out of ideas or need to reflect over how to move forward with a project.

The images below indicates my love to photograph outdoors in nature. It’s freeing and very relaxed, at times I have to patiently wait for the light or moment to “be just right”. The light is the key for my imagery, how it falls and shapes the object is what creates a photograph. 

Every so often there are very little photo editing involved. This is where my vision and the image comes together at the same time as I click the shutter. On the other hand some series need additional work before my original idea is captured. This is when I take a seat in front of my computer to start the second part of the creative process, photo editing.

When I feel it all looks right it is time to select what paper or material to print the photograph on. This is as crucial and important as any of the other parts of my creative process. I love to experiment and try new ways to display my work. The print process can also be a bit tricky as you move from idea, to captured image through the camera, to the computer and finally to ink. 

To finalize the idea photograph is the fist step in my creative process.

Fall, falling leaves and autumn

Fall is my favorite season.. a transition between summer to winter. I love its look and how it smells and tastes!
Harvest time gives the richness from mother earth in many shapes and forms. It makes me think of early nightfall with lit candles, hot beverages, apple pie and a good book to read.
I took these images during one of my many walks in Golden Gate Park.
