Portrait of jewelry designer Julie Nielsdotter

A while ago I did a portrait session of Julie Nielsdotter, for a blog called My own boss, which feature self- employed bosses in Copenhagen! This time we visited Julie, who is a 22 year old girl owning her own jewelry brand, and opening her own shop now in december! You can read the whole article here: https://mobzine.wordpress.com/

For a little bit over a week ago I had the pleasure to shoot this cool guy, Jeppe at my apartment! It was such a chill shoot and fun shoot! Nanna Møller (@nannahmoeller) helped me out with the grooming, so that the hair stayed fab the whole time shooting!

Shooting with Amalie

So this summer I had my summer holiday in Arendal. A gorgeous summer city south in Norway to visit my boyfriend. It's such a great place, and so cozy. We did so much in those two weeks, it felt like just a few days away. We had a road trip to Aarhus witch is the second biggest city in Denmark, and explored the northern parts of Denmark, witch is really beautiful. So many nice locations to shoot on! Back from the road trip we stayed at Trym's cabin. With a sea view. Really relaxing and beautiful to be there. Normally I cant relax so well, but there I cant just relax and love life! But I couldn't realx to much, because I had to take pictures. So i did a personal project about the place we stayed; Øyna and I did a fashion editorial with the super gorgeous and fab sister of Trym. So fun!

So here are the pictures, I hope you like it!

Exam

I can't quite believe it. That I'm an educated photographer! It's still quite a surreal for me. But day after day it is getting more and more real for me, and I'm getting more and more excited to enter the real world.

In may we had our exams. We got three weeks to do the four parts of the exam. The first task was the technical exam, where it was all about the technical aspects of photography. Lightning, right exposure, correct white balance, using lightmeter, and understanding how a product photo is made. The test we got was to copy two pictures one productphoto and commercial photo for the Norwegian waterbottle brand Farris. To make it as identical as possible. We had one and a half hour each in the studio to do it so it was very stressful, but it went well. Part to of this test was the post production . Where we where going to edit the photos we did the day before and edit one picture we got from the sensor.

The second task was the open genre section, where you could choose between commercial, portrait, documentary, fashion and lifestyle. I chose fashion. In fashion you had to do one editorial on location and one in studio. The studio shoot had to be six pictures, with new outfits on every picture. The location shoot had to be on 10 pictures and with new outfit on every picture. 

For the location shoot I traveled to Copenhagen to do. Because it's more models to choose from, and also an really inspirational place to be. I also did a lot of testings when I was down there to have a little more to choose from for my portfolio. The model I used for my exam shoot was Marius Bøjer from Le management. I have worked with him one time before and he is just so great and fun to work with, and with good company and a great model, there where a lot of great pictures to choose from as well.

For the studio shoot I collaborated with a hair stylist and he made the hair look so good and cook for the shoot, and added the little extra to the shoot. The model I used is my boyfriend! So photogenic and handsome!! But he was not so happy under the shoot mostly because he hates to stand in front of the camera. Because of his unhappiness and being a total diva, the pictures got a really cool and kind of bitchy mood that I liked really well.

The last assignment was the portfolio. Make a printed portfolio on 40 pictures. It was so hard to choose the best images and to make it a interesting portfolio! The whole process was a huge part of the final exam!

 

In all, I had working very hard with my exams, and used long time to plan, implement and the post process, but it was all worth it with great results!
