Pancakes are NOT finished yet !!

Born naturist in 1961- snapshooting naturalist in 2012. Not that much of an advance in 50 years. I admit it.
I am and has always been a party-photographer.
I try to be a little artistic as well sometimes, without succes so far. One of the professional artists in town say, that if I really work hard on it, I might understand art some shiney day.

Live in Noerrebro, Copenhagen, Denmark. Work on a powerstation as engineer (maskinmester).

Shooting:
The internet has given me so much, so I shoot a lot of images with the purpose of giving something back. Apart from that I shoot live music and various events. I am a dedicated available light photographer and avoid the use of flash as much as possible.

Editing:
I used to convert raw files and edit in Bibble, then afterwards make som more editing in Paintshop Pro. Now I´ve shifted to Lightroom (D800 not supported in Bibble) and the only steps I still do in Paintshop Pro is straightening, perspective correctioning, cropping and sometimes some unsharp masking.
When I look back at all the noisy images I´ve made, I realize I should have shifted long time before.

Gear:
Until april 2008 I didn´t own a digital SLR, but then I bought a D80 and used that for 4-5 years.
In spring 2012 I upgraded to D800 + 35mm/1.4, 24-70mm/2.8 and 70-200/2.8. So - from now I have no more excuses for producing poor images.
I also have a discrete Canon S90 and a olympus TG-1 underwater camera. The TG-1 is great !
Back in the 1980' s I always carried a Olympus OM2n on my shoulder. From those days I've got a lot of negatives and slides. From time to time I spend an evening scanning the past.
When scanning negatives I use a Nikon Coolscan V ED. When I started to use that one I realized again - a lot of time had been waisted scanning film on a flatbed.

Knowledge sharing and constructive criticism:
Last year I started a photo group - "Old men with new cameras". We meet from time to time, eat some dinner, discuss photography and drink some beers. I recommend for everyone to do something similar. It´s in the talks you get some of the "glued tiles moved".

Most of my photos are available in full size - on request.
Requests are sent to my Gmail.com address. Put erikdaugaard before the @.
For absolutely non-commercial purposes - it`s for free.
For semi commercial purposes - it`s inexpensive.
For business purposes - it`s business.

If the experience I've had over the years, can be of help to anyone, the pleasure will be all mine. Feel free to ask me questions about everything.
