Two months ago, Nisi Filters released the new Natural Night filter. This filter is designed to reduce light pollution on night pictures. Light pollution is a big problem for photographers who enjoy capturing clear starry skies near big cities, or in the city itself. The yellow glow from street lights reduces the visibility of the stars and adds a uniform yellow colour to the picture. It appears the staff at Nisi Filters have found a solution to this problem. When […]
It’s been six months since I purchased a set of NiSi Filters and I think it is a good time to write a small summary to explain my experiences using the NiSi filter system and filters. So, why did I choose NiSi Filters in the first place? The filters I had been using (old Cokin) were not that great and I really needed a good set of filters. For years I had believed that LEE Filters were the best, […]

Last week I received from NiSi few filters and one of them was NiSi HUC PRO Nano IR ND64 + CPL. It is a screw-in multifunctional ND 6 stop filter with a built in Polarizing filter (2in1). During the last days I had a chance to try this filter and decided to share my first impressions with you. Presented pictures maybe are not the best ones, but as soon as I will have more examples I will post part2 of this small review. First Impressions As expected, the quality is very […]
There is nothing more relaxing than few hours on the rocky coast with sound of waves and beautiful sunset. Do you agree? Taken with: NiSi holder V5 + NC CPL + GND16 soft (1.2), Canon 5DmkIV, + Canon 17-40/4L Helleviga – Kristiansand, Norway
I always stay after sunset until is totally dark. The last time was no exception. I really enjoy playing with very long exposure times. Here is how it looks when you combine big waves and 2,5 minutes exposure time in almost total darkness. Taken with: NiSi holder V5 + NC CPL + GND16 soft (1.2), Canon 5DmkIV, + Canon 17-40/4L Flekkerøy – Kristiansand, Norway

Storm “Vidar” once again. This one is probably one of the last pictures taken on my well used 5DmkII. Today I am happy because I just bought new Canon 5DmkIV With this camera I have now tons of new possibilities, and can’t wait to try them all and share them with you guys 😉 Taken with: NiSi holder V5 + CPL + GND8 soft (0.9)
Today before sunrise. It was almost the end of the last storm (Vidar), but still the sea and the sky was aggressive. Shooting in this conditions ended quite badly for me, because few pictures later my camera decided to die. I think it was to much rain. Now camera is drying surrounded by silica gel, and hopefully will survive. NiSi holder V5 + CPL + GND8 soft (0.9), 13s. exposure. Hellevika – Kristiansand, Norway UPDATE 1! camera survived! after precise […]

What a lovely weather was on Flekkerøy today! Big waves, rain, snow and really strong wind. Me and all equipment was totally wet, but we survived 👍 Very refreshing experience. And one behind the scene picture with says it all 😉
I am very happy to announce that I have been chosen as the new product ambassador for NiSi Filters Nordic Europe! Extremely excited to be working with great people from NiSi Filters and have chance to promote their amazing products.
For quite a long time I had this picture in mind, me with fire torch standing on the rocky coast and milky way shining in the background. Finaly last week I made it happen. I DIY my fire torch from wooden stick, old t-shirt and vegetable oil which when burned smels like french fries… I know, but hey it worked. It was great fun to shoot it and picture came out exactly as I planned.
Anyone feels too warm today? Here is something to cool you down. Early morning on Flekkerøy few weeks back.
Another spectacular end of the day on Flekkerøy a few weeks ago. I miss that place, I have to go there soon.
Winter sunrise on Flekkerøy. It is quite amazing how a bit of snow can transform landscape. Sørlandet, beautiful at any time of the year
“The Ice monks” Szrenica – Karkonosze Mountains, Poland. Picture taken quite long time ago (nearly 10 years ago) but I still love it. Lots of beautiful memories from this trip
When we stretch out time everything looks different. Water look like silk, clouds look like smudges, only rocks look the same. Here is 8 minute exposure on Flekkerøy. I really enjoy creating these unreal images and I hope You like it too.
Picture from a beautiful evening last Sunday on Flekkerøy. Rough sea and rapidly moving clouds, a perfect combination for a long exposure pictures.
To take this picture I have waited 10 months. Only in March and September position of the sun it is ideal for photographing sunset in this place. With a plan in my head patiently I waited for the time in which the conditions will be perfect. In March I had no luck to realize my plan, but last Sunday I had the perfect sunset with rough seas thanks to which the waves reached far inland. What you think, It was […]
Ansteins lighthouse, very popular destination for hikers on Flekkerøy. This lighthouse is located near my favorite piece of this island that I visit most frequently.
This was crazy sunset One of the biggest waves I ever seen in this place, beautiful clouds, and even rainbow! 4 times I was flooded with a wave and have returned home completely wet. But it was worth it! it was an amazing evening
Waves crashing into rocky coast on Flekkerøy with moon above. Picture taken few minutes after midnight. 241 second exposure time. Kristiansand – Norway.
On friday I was scouting new locations on Flekkerøy. I found this new area on google maps, and I wanted to see if is any good. The place turned out to be very interesting, great bare rock with a lot of cracks and rock pools. I was there until sunset, which was truly spectacular! Heavy clouds for a moment were highlighted with intense red light of the sunset, pure beauty! Beautiful place, beautiful sunset … what more could I want. Have […]
Another spectacular sunset at Flekkerøy, Kristiansand. This one is from yesterday. The sea was quiet, but sky was very nice
