New photography portfolio website is up:
I love being on Flickr.
With every day I spend here, I learn more about the art of photography, and my knowledge about taking pictures grows. And every time I use this community, I take my hat off to the people who build it.
Still, I'm trying to figure out how my photos look for someone who has not actually been there. I think it helps a lot with getting better.
Flickr is an amazing place with incredibly talented photographers. So, thanks to all the people who inspire me!
I didn't shoot people before summer 2010. Now it's become one of my favorite subjects to shoot. There's so much to explore in a face!
I am a corporate web designer and do freelance design and photography in addition.
I have lived in Iceland for two and a half years, worked as a farm hand and horse trainer and acquired a horse trainer's degree from Hólar Agricultural College. You can see in some of my photos that I am deeply connected with horses.
You can post your comments in English, German, Icelandic and French, and I'll also manage Spanish and Italian :)
Note: Although I feel honored by your group invitations, please don't invite my photos to "post 1, fave 3" or similar groups. Commenting, faving, and awarding should be fun and not a duty!
I always try to give meaningful comments on the pictures that move me, and I am happy if people do the same on my photos. If you want to read a good article about this, I recommend this one.

"I always amazed at Birgit's shots,specially the scenery images. macro and flora! ,.Her photographs are filled with excitement, beauty, and a loving, peaceful feeling . Means has a good eye and sees things the average photographer would miss.Believe it or not, I really like her pics, can see a vast improvement when i compare with her recent with the first image to flickr.
Apart from photography She is really a nice ,kind and sweet friend, Spent time to discover her friend's streams, her comments are encouraging and supportive . Though we are miles apart , i feel like She is very close with me! I am glad She is a friend of mine !:D "
nice to meet you and wish u all the best and luck in future.. god bless:)
