Who am I and why am I here?

I have been a member of flickr since April 2006.

I have always loved taking photos, but I have never had an idea of the science behind the photography until the day I stumbled into an Italian guy here at flickr.

The guy opened my eyes for the photography world and since the meeting I have tried to develop my photos. At least I try to think before I shoot. The guy became my teacher and you can find him here: funadium

I love shooting flowers but I try to experiment with other things too.

I have a Nikon D40 and a couple of different lenses, and in june 2009 I extended my gear with a Nikon D300 and a new lens... I hope I did the right thing...

Update January 2013: Now I am also the owner of a D600 :-)

I am using a lot of my sparetime at this hobby. It is really a time-consumer but I enjoy it a lot and I'm having a lot of fun too.

Maybe I should remember to say that I am in manual mode the most of the time, even I resisted a lot in the beginning. I have learned that the automated programs are not allways good enough ;-)

    "Flickr has made a contact between Lotte and me possible. We share the same love and passion for photography and hence comments on each other’s work, so we can learn more and develop our skills.
    Lotte has an excellent eye for compositions. If you look through her stream you will see many small gems, where the composition is very strong and thereby makes the photo stand out. Lately Lotte has also worked to develop her skills within post processing. And again you see a very conscious use of a new tool. Nothing is overdone and the photo is enhanced without losing its originality and story.
    Lotte is an active member of Nikon Denmark and have won many of our monthly competition - fully deserved.
    And as Lotte is very selective with whom she adds as contacts, you can count on attention from Lotte when you upload your own work.
    This is the soul of Flickr as a community - to share a common passion and to enforce this passion with the ones you chose to interact with on Flickr.
    Lotte is a rising start within photography and I'm sure we will see much more of her work in various places, books, articles and on-line media.
    Lotte - I really appreciate sharing our mutual passion with you here on Flickr."
