Practicing photography


Playing around with this gorgeous olds-mobile, a wedding-cake and the art of photography. Just for fun, the pictures are not for any special use. I was surprised how many tiny details you have to be aware of, trying to get a really nice shot. Very interesting to participate in.





I think i might actually have lost my heart a little bit to this car... :)
It runs like a dream and the sound of the engine..





This is my favourite shot. I like the beautiful, shiny car up against the rustic barn. Notice the exterior passenger seats in the back? Fits 2 people like a glove. The candles are the only thing i´ve edited. -One had blown out.




The cake on its own. A dummy with brown scrolls put together from 2 different moulds. The scrolls are painted with a tiny amount of gold-dust dissolved in clear alcohol just to add a little shine. The rose is made on a styrofoam-egg.



Photographer: Søren Westergaard

These photos are taken at sort of a private event at a runway in Grønholt in the finest company, great people with vintage cars, a Ford Mustang, the Oldsmobile from 1935 - one of a kind, and a custom made bike by Jesse James!! I used to love watching Monster Garage with my dad - I never in a million years thought i would be standing next to one of their bikes :)

We got a ride in the plane in the background and my daughter got to steer it for a while. The smile on her face!

  1. Hold da fast nogle smukke billeder... De er virkelige gode. Den bil klæder kagen så flot. Og kagen er bare (som altid) enormt smuk.

    Flot..

  3. Hej Pia-Marianne.

    Sikke en flot kage :) billederne er skønne og hvis jeg må tillade mig at kommentere på dem, så synes jeg at din flotte kage ikke kommer helt til sin ret. Jeg er på ingen måde fotografekspert, men tænker at jeg nogen gange ser billeder hvor bagrunden er lidt uklar. Det tænker jeg kunne være sjovt her, således at man fik fokus på din flotte kage, og bilen lidt faded men alligevel sådan at man godt kunne se den. For sådan en gammel bil er jo bestemt super smuk. Bare en tanke om hvordan jeg godt kunne tænke mig at se din kage.KH Connie

  4. Mange tak skal i have :) Connie, det er fordi fotografen og jeg er vildere med bilen, end vi er med kagen! :))) Men du har ret, jeg skal have leget lidt med billederne, Ulla nævnte ordet "sepia" og det skal helt klart også prøves. Jeg har lige et par projekter der skal overståes først dog :) Tak for feed-back! *knus*
