goodbye 2011

I realize this is a little late, but here is a summary of 2011;











































I also want to tell you a little about why I haven't been such an active blogger lately (as you may have noticed). The reason is simply that I got a new job in May this year, and I still haven't been able to find a good routine where I can combine working with photographing and blogging, and the last two months of 2011 were quite useless when it came to taking pictures - it was dark when I got up in the morning, and it was dark when I got home from work in the afternoon, and I don't really like to shoot with artificial lighting. Plus, it doesn't really help that when I do get home from work I'm usually so tired and hungry that all I want to do is lay on the sofa, eat and watch movies and television with Leo.

What I want you to know is that I still take pictures - it just takes me a little longer to finish a roll now, and I still love blogging here and I truthfully wish I could have something new to show you more often, and I promise I will try to be better at it this year. I love you all so much for visiting me here, so I want to say thank you, and I do hope you can understand why I'm gone a little more these days. You can always follow me at my facebook-page for more regular updates as well.

I wish you all a happy 2012!

  1. beautiful!
    I have the same problem with my job too. Dark in the morning and by the time I get home it's dark again plus im so dead! I try to scan and post all my stuff on the weekends and then space the posts out throughout the week.

  2. ah jag blir galen! dina bilder är så sinnessjukt bra! det finns inga ord som kan beskriva din talang, verkligen

  3. Jag tycker så så mycket om dina bilder och sättet du fotar på! De flesta fotografer jag gillar tar någorlunda uppstyrda foton där de har möten med modeller och allt möjligt - något jag verkligen inte kan identifiera mig med. Därför känns det nästan mer givande att titta på dina bilder, som är helt fantastiska, men ändå känns naturliga.

    1. Åh, tack så mycket Frida! Jag känner ofta likadant när det gäller att använda sig av modeller. Självklart finns det de som kan göra det naturligt och riktigt bra ändå, men väldigt ofta syns det så himla tydligt att det är en modell som helt enkelt bara poserar.

  12. Underbart som vanligt. ÄLSKAR dina bilder alltså.

    Har du något redigeringstips för att få dem att se så analoga ut? Med bruset osv? Eller är alla tagna med analog kamera här?

    kram!

    1. Tack snälla! De flesta är tagna med analoga kameror, det är bara bild nr 1 och 10 som är digitala. När det gäller redigeringstips har jag inte direkt några, jag kör mest på känsla när jag redigerar och gör inte likadant alltid. Oftast brukar jag lägga på lite kontrast (med kurvor i photoshop) om det behövs och justera färgerna om jag inte är nöjd från första början. Kram!

  14. Hi Annette!

  16. These are pure magic. Such artistry.

  17. You are the most amazing photographer and model!

    I totally understand when you have a job and then it's always too early and too late for shooting since the light is gone, that sucks right?

    Anyway, looking forward for new photos coming up this year and happy 2012 :)

  19. Annette I want to ask what digital cameras owned and used for photographing

    1. I very rarely shoot digital nowadays (only two of the photos in this post are digital - nr 1 and 10), but when I do I use either a Canon EOS 350D or a Nikon D70, both really old and nothing special at all, and I guess that is probably why I don't really use them anymore. In other words, I mostly shoot film with 35mm cameras, medium format and polaroid. Thank you so much!

  52. Your photos make me genuinely miss Sweden Annette. I have been living abroad for quite a few years now, but nothing makes me appreciate the beauty of Sweden and miss my home country as much as looking at your photos. Tack för en underbar blogg och att du är en fantastisk inspiration.
