As some of you may have noticed, I am slowly getting myself back into the blog sphere after a longer summer break. Slowly meaning I posted my first “Last Week’s Instagram” here on my blog earlier this week. And from now on I will be back fully and once again committed to writing about photography and creativity.
The break was necessary to gather strength and momentum and inspiration, not only for blogging, but for life in general. I needed some air under my wings, get free from the daily chores—as we all do from time to time.
However, it’s not been anything close to a normal summer break. I have actually worked, but with tasks I have long wanted to do and not found time for. The worldwide corona outbreak certainly limited the usual summer activities I would normally embark on, such as travelling, visiting friends and just get away, anywhere. Instead I have, yes, worked.
That doesn’t sound much like a break, you may object. For me it was. Just changing the daily routine makes a big difference. But work? Yes, that too, when it’s fun. This summer I have built a new online program. Unfortunately, it won’t be something for most of you, since it’s targeting a Norwegian audience and a very specific such. More interesting I hope, is the new eBook about seeing photographically, that I finally have finished this summer.
It’s been years in coming, the text long been ready, but I just haven’t found time to put it all together and layout the pages. Well, this break changed that. I still have a few tweaks to do before I will release the book, but the photo following this post is the front page and a little teaser for what to come.
The eBook goes into details about what it takes a photographer to be able to see and understand what can become a photo. Seeing is where it all starts. If you don’t see anything worth photographing, you won’t be able take captivating photos. Naturally. So “Photographically Seeing—See Better, See Deeper” will teach you how to open up your eyes.
That’s all I will say for now. Of course, I will be back with an announcement soon, when I am ready to launch the book.
On different note: I hope you all have been able to enjoy the summer here on the northern and the winter on the southern hemisphere, even with the limitation imposed by the corona outbreak.
It’s good to be back.
