Link to my blog where I have posted an HDR tutorial:
It happens that I blog when I'm out traveling, but the blog is usually dead in between. You can read the blog at:
You should probably add the site to your rss-reader if you don't want to check when/if I have updated the blog.
Lots of people are adding me as a contact. I'm very sorry that I can't add all of you to my contact list, but I have found out that I can't watch photos from 2000+ people :(
I just became interested in photographing and there's lots to learn. I used the screen name cameranewbie during my first months here, but Kaj Bjurman is my real name.
I bought my first camera, a Canon 30D in december 2006, and have now bought a Canon 5D MarkIII.
I live in Stockholm, Sweden but I like to travel, and do usually visit a few countries each year.
I'm a consultant and software developer at Finally AB. You can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to buy photos.

"Kaj is one of the best HDR photographers that i saw in flickr. For me he has a unique style, (that he never changes :P) but a style that he tries always to improve in each photo that he makes.
I really love his eye for the colours and the perfect use of HDR (not to hard). So for me not just a good photographer, also a nice person that always answers my questions!
So, happy to meet you Kaj,

"Kaj is completely brilliant in his ability with the camera. His mastery of HDR and the technologies' ability to capture light and color are both stunning and remarkable. But more than that, I have grown to really appreciate his kindness and friendship even half a world away. He has been quick to answer any question and encourage my fledgling ability. His eye for a great scene and ability to give it life are completely inspirational."

"I want to end up the year 2008 by letting Kaj know how his HDR work has inspired me. It was his photostream where I first discovered this genre HDR and that was the moment when I began Flickr last June 2008.
It was his HDR tutorial I used during my practice stage.
He has an eye, he knows how to frame his subjects that draws viewer to appreciate his composition.
He's not colorblind (hehe) as he can mix and tone his colors very well.
Above all he is generous- for he spares time answering all of my queries related to our trade.
I salute you Kaj, more HDR's to come on 2009, keep up the good work!"

"Kaj has got one of my favorite photostreams in flickr ... I can't miss any of his photos !
an amazing photographer, and an excellent photo image processor and editor ... his HDR photography is breathtaking !"
July 25th, 2008
"I enjoy viewing Kaj's photostream not only for the superb photography, but the great scenes from all over the world. His work is refreshing, inspiring, and quite simply amazing. He is one of the best in achieving realistic hdr images, and has a keen eye for composition."

"A great HDR photostream. Beautiful places all over the world are explored to us in high quality HDR shots.
It's a real pleasure to view your photos"

William Said says:
"What to say about Kaj that hasn't been said over and over in the flood of comments and awards that he receives for every picture he posts...? Kaj is one of the rare photographers who sees beauty in the mundane and with the help of a camera, can bring that beauty out with unbelievable results. His rendering and post-processing is just icing on the cake. Absolutely one to keep as a contact just so you can have a new image up every so often in your contacts stream! Definitely one to keep an eye on. He's a good friend with a helping hand when you need it. Now... if I can only convince him to pass on to me his lenses...!"
February 29th, 2008
"One of the nicest persons in flickr, Kaj not only takes good photos but he also processes them skillfully. Like a fine craftsman, he labors for each photo he takes, you can see the final product for yourselves.
and i would not want to forget that he unselfishly shares his knowledge to others.
thanks for sharing your photos, your art, Kaj! i'm lucky to have you as contact :)"

"excellent for a newbie!, Love some of your HDR Work, think that they are out of this world!"

"Enanched colors and pixel smooth as a silk.
The images rapresented in your pictures loose magically the edges and they seem to emerge from a different world, where the three dimensinos are melted toghether."
January 11th, 2008
"A testimonial for Kaj is long overdue, but here it is "finally" :)
Kaj has fantastic photo skills and has quickly evolved into an HDR magician. I sure envy the the passion, time and effort he puts into photography, truly great work.
Keep up the good work dude!"
