Zang, thanks  for commenting

I thought timber reproduction in a square steel case is a good contrast to a human reproduction in a round Gore-Tex case  :)

Young Bjørn, old Birna. Life is a roller-coaster ride.

One of my favorite self-portraits. Taken with the Micro-Nikkor AF 105mm f/2.8D on my Nikon D700. There is an interesting story behind this shot. I had just finished watching a headshot video workshop by Peter Hurley and i wanted desperately to try all the new things i learned. My gf wasn't in the mood for taking some shots so i adjusted the camera on a tripod, connected the remote trigger so i can trigger the shutter from a distance and relied on the brilliant autofocus system of D700. I played the model for the first (and last maybe) time in my life trying to do my best in posing and direct myself. I used my balcony as a studio and natural diffuced light.
