A photosession in a cold Stockholm

A couple of days ago I was asked if I could take a few portraits of a friend of mine. She wanted some new pictures of herself. Maybe to use as profile picture and such.

I am not very experienced in photoing people like that. It’s one thing to be out in the streets taking photos of strangers in different situations. But quiet different to for example take good portraits. But I like when I get the opportunity to learn by doing. Most people I know, don’t like to be photographed. So not much training there.

We went out for a little while. It was a bit cold and wet, so we didn’t keep on for too long. But got a few pictures. This one here I processed a bit afterwards in Silver Efex Pro and Lightroom.

Yesterday I had the opportunity to finish from work early. I had my camera with me, so I went downtown to stroll around and get some pictures. Last couple of times I’ve been out, it feels I have gone to basically the same places. So now I wanted to try to go somewhere I hadn’t been so much before.

I decided as usual on my way downtown where to go. Kungsträdgården became the subway station where I hopped off. And then walked out on Skeppsholmen, and Kastellholmen. It was a really beautiful afternoon, though it was cold and windy. A lot of shots were taken. You’ll see some of them here in the days to come.

The picture in this post was taken at the subway station where I started my trip downtown. It is inside the Stadshagen station.
