Outside in..

A house once belong to Surte glasbruk. Surte glasbruk is the glass factory famous for designing the very first Coca Cola bottle. But that’s another story. Now the house has since the last 13 years been the home for people with difficulties – in some cases drugs, some health others money etc. Now, a new road is under construction and within a month the house will be emptied – and luckily for the people inside most of them has a new place to go – probably a better place too – this one has really seen the best of days and were never meant to be lived in at all – as it was built and used as an office.

Now, I’ve been visiting them to help my way and I consider them all close friends. I hardly showed them a camera before mostly because I don’t want anyone to think that I’ve been there because of a shot – but today I just couldn’t hold myself and I went there and took a few pictures. No one had any objections..

I brought the SD14 coupled with the 12-24mm lens and I had my friend Bengt assisting me with my quadra. I tried hard to recreate the light that I felt was in the room to begin with – and often going above 2s exposures. tricky. :)

Also all shots has first been developed using Sigma Photo Pro and then post-processed in Lightroom 3 – mostly adding vignetting and some contrast adjustments.

    Carl, love the middle shots in the last strip, he man on the bed. great use of the light!

  2. Thanks Bob! Man, it was very tricky to find space for my poor assistant. I wanted it one way and most of the time it was impossible for him o get there. hehe..

    I love that series, great images, lovely soft light. But in general, what i like most (as in other posts) is the fact that you capture true life, interesting people and their environment…

    Nice series Carl. You portray your subjects with dignity. Do you prefer the 12-24 over the 10-20 or 15-30? Thanks.

  5. Well, it all depends. The 15-30 is very very sharp, but has a ugly bokeh. The 10-20 has a better sharpness than the 12-24 but the 12-24 has slightly better contrast when F11 is used. :) And 10-20 is very wide which is nice.

    So I grab whatever feels perfect for each shoot. Not easy. ;)
