I got my first ”real” camera from my dad when I was about fourteen. A Pentax. Bought it in a secondhand store in Dakar, Senegal, at the bottom of the hill, in the corner store not far from the marked. I loved it. He taught me how to set the exposure and I began to experiment. My favorite shot was a close up of a hibiscus in my parent›s garden. I was taught to develop film by Mister T. in the dark room down the hall. I wish I could go back to those times.
I am born in Norway 41 years ago, but have lived on three continents and lived in seven countries.
I have settled in Gedera, Israel with my lovely family, a husband, two kids and two dogs. During the day I work as a pathologist, but at night and in the weekends I play as a hobbyist photographer.
My real photography education started when my son was born. Digital photography was born at about the same time. Then I discovered Photoshop and my life changed. Forever.
I am a self taught hobbyist photographer. I love my cameras, my gear, computers and Photoshop. It’s my world. I love learning new photography techniques, experimenting. More than that I love looking for the right light, the right angle, the right moment.
….. the moment that laughs…..
My gear: I am a Nikon girl. My first Nikon was a Nikon D50, later I upgraded to Nikon D90 and later D800. Now I shoot Nikon D4s and Nikon Df. I have, according to my husband, too many lenses. But I love them all. And he must love me because he willingly supplies my gear lust. ;)
