So last time i was visiting renars, liina and evaldas i kept passing by this thing on the wall for a day until i realized that on it was my very first published photo :D didnt have a clue… the school IT guy had asked for my photos to use on the website when i was still studying there… guess they picked it up from him. Alos in this article http://stiften.dk/odder/odder-hoejskole-faar-sit-eget-tv-show
So along with a car come bunch of overlooked issues… replaced the sealing for the oil pan due to a leak (hell of a messy job)
tried fixing the muffler with some paste but somehow it broke completely, luckily thansen.dk had a nice cheap replacement. Also had to drill out the ignition coil since it stopped turning. got a replacement, switched it and extracted the immobilizer chip from the old key to duck tape it to the sensor. Also got a pair of new speakers for some of those longer trips.
Well, when it comes to denmark then having a car is a a costly business… new ones have 200% tax on top of the original price and old ones are moving rust buckets. in most cases bike and a bus are a better choise… unless you live in a place like grindsted where public transport is kind of a joke (hence my new purchase) so heres a quick intro to save some time if you stumbled upon this page looking for some short, simple information.
So i picked up a softbox from amazon… hell of a lot of fun as long as you have a powerful light/flash (as i discovered, the canon 430 exII works with my nikon d90 in manual mode!) set it up on a tripod next to the softbox, used a ttl cable to connect it to my good ol D90 and had some fun… heres a few test shots…
For the last month or so ive been living next to this little place called Grindsted. Its a small town with a population of 9,548. Small, nice,cozy but pretty much dead when it comes to entertainment it seems (as long as you dont have many friends around i guess). So heres a small visual journey to and through the town
Well, Hojskole is over. I had a nice chill time in Estonia for a few weeks and now i will be heading back to Denmark.
I shall Start working In an architecture company- dealing with websites, photography, 3D/visualization, print, etc.
Should be pretty fun, looking forward to it! So my new home base will be in the countryside close to Billund/Grindsted.
As sad as it might be, all things come to an end. This Semester in Odder Hojskole was really a blast and im grateful for being able to take part in it. The social experience you can get in a place like this is absolutely unique. I will sure miss the place. Well, the people mostly- In the end it felt like we had known each other for ages. Eh, times go on, cant stay stuck in a bubble of denial, i will stay in denmark for a while it seems so im sure il meet many familiar faces sooner or later ;) til then, see ya all and thanks for the wonderful time and moments!

One of the classes i chose in odder was Analogue photography.
Basically a quick introduction to developing your film and photos after which you were good to go- the dark room and chemicals were available at all times, there were some tasks during classes but overall you could just shoot some films for fun.
Heres most of my stuff that turned out ok. (shot with nikon f55, the blurry dark ones are with lomo fisheye.. terrible stuff)
