Last Week’s Instagram


Once a week—or every so often—I will display one of my photos captured and/or processed with Instagram over the last week. It’s a way for me to show photography that usually is quite different from my regular work. Except for the technical details beneath the pictures are displayed without any comments, hoping they will stand on their own. But I still very much appreciate any comments you may have.

Facts about the photo: It was taken with my Lumix LX-100 at 10.9 mm (the equivalent of a 24 mm full frame lens). Shutter speed was 1/2000 of a second and the aperture set at f/8.0. The photo was transferred to my cell phone and developed in Snapseed with a Drama filter, warmed a little and then I added one of the frames that Snapseed provides.

  2. Elaine- says:

    your black diamond companion? i guess this just goes to show you that Otto takes his camera EVERYWHERE, even down scary ski runs he pauses for a shot lol

  3. YellowCable says:

    A cool shot! You just captured just at the right time.

  4. The depth of that mountainside is so clear! Hope it was a great run but not for me…

    Jahaja…här har vi en snygg “Telemarkare”, utförd i Norge antar jag…eller varför inte i Seattletrakten?
    Jodå, jag mår bra, jag är inne hos dig då och då och följer med på dina “utflykter”…mellan mina egna små dito.
    Du rör dig mellan värme och kyla, mellan egen aktivitet och andras lite lugnare tillvaro (kanske en chimär), mellan norr och syd och allt däremellan.
    Har själv precis varit på besök hos Tranor och “annat” vid Hornborgasjön…blir helt matt varje gång av allt “storstrutssmattrande”. Hade aldrig hamnat där om inte svärföräldrana hade råkat bo granne med nämnda sjö:)
    Du Otto…ha det gott och jag uppskattar alltid det jag ser här hos dig, även om jag inte skickar kommentarer varje gång:)

    • Når det gjelder det siste du skriver, er det akkurat likedan for meg. Setter alltid pris på det du gjør – og ikke minst de besøkene som du avlegger her. Takk for de varmende ordene.

    A most attractive snowy action shot, nicely enhanced by the filters at your disposal.

    Uno scatto molto bello, hai catturato l’azione sportiva dello sciatore.
    Un caro saluto, Pat

    I think those bold, vibrant colors, seen against the black and white mountain, beautifully capture the excitement and anticipation of such a run. Even though I don’t ski, seeing the photo makes me want to ski. What could be better proof of a photo’s liveliness?

  11. Ptck says:

    Your picture has Peps !! , Bright color and beautiful footwork skier !! 😉

  12. Nice one, Otto. I like the sense of action captured in this frame.

  13. Love the movement and the sharpness of the skier. The bright colors against the white snow really bring him into focus.

  14. seabluelee says:

    I agree with Linda’s (shoreacres) comment above. I don’t ski either, but through this photo I can imagine the rush!

  15. Heartafire says:


  16. this is a classic shot

  17. I love how the back ski is cut off, great sense of action and the framing is perfect.

  18. Great shot, Otto. 🙂
