About Carl Rytterfalk

Welcome to my blog! I'm Carl Rytterfalk, a swedish photographer who loves everything that is interesting in the world of photography. In 2002 I fell in love with the three layered Foveon sensor and has since then been an addicted user of Sigma cameras. Though I use Canon and Nikon as well. :)

    Great result, I like the orange tints reflecting the sun light. Have you chosen a title for it?

  2. Hi Dan. Thanks! Title? No, not yet. Perhaps you have something coming? :D

    Well done. An another great foveon! I can see a tiny bit of noise there, but fantastic colours. Which brush setting did you use? ;-)

    My vote for title is: ‘AreoSverige’ – ‘Sweden on Mars’

    It’s for the color scheme….

    I am now trying to merge this image with the senses of a Henning Mankell novel recently read ;)

    Nice you go to your mother’s classes, Carl, in many ways.


  5. You should name it. “SDIMXXXX.x3f”

    Where XXXX is the number of the file

    Nice paint tho… Your too talented :-D

  6. Chris! hahaha! SDIMXXXX.x3f – I wonder what people would think at the exhibition if I used it. :) Anyways, this was much more fun that I though – and also the feeling that I didn’t cheat which gave me this freedom that you never get if you put the original photo “behind”.

    Clive, thanks! Mom gave me the tip to use pink color as background, she says that everything in nature has pink in it. If I would paint a face then green would be the background color. Interesting stuff.. :) Lots of things to learn which I think I can use when dealing with photos too.. At least I hope so.

    Carl, yes, she is showing you what a painter knows, and I agree this can be very valuable to you. Indeed there is green in flesh tones, and the sun gives rose to everything outdoors. Among others ;). The blue sky, of course, is why shadows turn blue.

    I will keep my jokes aside, about turning you into a Fauvist, or Post-Impressionist. However, painters may be very good to look at from that period. For shape and humanistic composition ideas as well as colors. I am thinking for example of Bonnard, Vuillard, and in other ways some of Monet and Pissaro.

    But you will find your own – and good things from your mother ;)

    should say ‘sunless sky’ probably and not just ‘blue’, esp. as far north as you are…
