I've been running this photoblog ever since I got my first dSLR in February 2007. I've had several Point 'n Shoot cameras before that, but the upgrade to a dSLR gave me the opportunity of being more creative and explore the field of photography even more - just like I wanted to.

Since then I’ve spend a lot of time educating myself on the subject – with everything from the technical aspects such as the mechanics of a camera, optics, camera software and hardware, and so on – as well as he more important aspects such as composition, exposure, color theory, etc.

When I started out I didn’t really know where the hobby would lead me – but I soon realized that nature photography - and especially landscapes – was what I loved the most. Being able to combine my love with nature and hiking with the creative aspects of photography is very satisfying.

However, I sometimes feel imprisoned by this safe zone of photography and try to escape from it from time to time – I feel a need to broaden my horizons as a photographer to become better – also at landscape photography.

With this latest design update to my photoblog I hope to motivate myself in doing just that. I’ve introduced several new categories that hopefully allow me to create and post photos that I would normally not.
