I’ve been home for almost a week now and the weather’s been sun sun and more sun ever since I got back. So incredible nice to be home with my family and just relax and do whatever I want without stressing about exams. I’ve been really busy since I got back, my days have been filled with things to do from morning to evening, and I have so many photos to share already!

It’s been a bit quiet here lately, but here are some photos taken the last couple of weeks! I’ve just been enjoying my freedom after I finished exams, trying to make the most of each day I have left in Edinburgh before going back home to Norway for the summer. Only a couple of days left here, and it feels so strange…Edinburgh is truly starting to feel like home and it’s going to be weird not being here for 3 months over the summer. Edinburgh in my heart<3

I’m done with my exams for this semester, and can finally take some time to enjoy how incredible beautiful Edinburgh is right now. The Meadows is absolutely breathtaking, so if you’re in the area: go take a look! Definitely worth getting a little fresh air and a couple of minutes of freedom, especially if you’re a student revising for your exams right now (feel your pain, hang in there!). Hoping to get a lot of days outside this month before I head back to Norway for the summer, crossing my fingers that most of the days will be filled with sunshine!

Some more photos from the shoot I had with Sunniva (Sòl) last summer, in context with her band, Vǫluspá, releasing their first album. We wanted to experiment with different backgrounds and lighting to see how we could create a different mood with the same outfit. I quite like the forest background, it works well with the viking-theme we usually go for, although it was a nightmare to shoot here with thousands of mosquitoes trying to eat us alive. We suffered through it though (Sunniva the most, being the one with the least amount of clothes) in the hope that some of the photos would turn out great, which I think they did!
Also, if anyone finds my editing to be horrible, bear with me, I’ve never had any Photoshop courses, so all my photos are victims of try and fail, or try and succeed! The more I edit though, the more I learn, and the more I love the endless possibilities that Photoshop give us.

Just some photos from my weekend in Norway, when I went to Aas Univeristy to surprise my best friend, Elisabeth on her birthday! Norway was a bit colder than Scotland, and here spring was just starting with beautiful crocuses and green patches everywhere. Perfect for a walk with the camera.
Only got one month left of 2nd semester of uni before I’m done with exams, which means little time to do anything but uni work. I still got some photos from the photoshoot with Kate and Sunniva left that I’ll post, just so it won’t be complete silence here for a month!

Finally! Here’s some of the photos I took of Sunniva last summer, in context with her band, Vǫluspá, releasing their first album. Check out their songs here or on Facebook here . I love how the colours in the background compliment the feathers she’s wearing, and I’m quite happy with the way these pictures turned out. I have a few more photos I’d like to share with you guys, so stay tuned 🙂
I’ve been wanting to change my blog theme for a while, and finally got around to do so, giving it a more professional look and making my photos HUGE so that they stand out more. What do you guys think?

Proud to share some really cool pictures of my friend Katherine that I took a while ago. Refreshing with a new face, and she is such an easy model to work with! This girl know how to pose, and her outfits were all really amazing! These are just from the first outfit, so I’ll share some more photos later (just need to edit them all first, which takes AGES!).

My flatmate, Ellie, asked if I wanted to join her, her friend and our other flatmate, Chelsey, for a hike in the Pentlands Saturday morning, which I said yes to, thinking it would most likely not happen (knowing my ability to get up early in the morning and the fact that Edinburgh weather rarely let a day pass without rain). But what do you know, we got up at 8 in the morning and left the house by 9! I am so happy we went, it was such a nice way to start the day. The weather was perfect (although a bit windy at the top), and I even brought my camera and got some nice pictures. Incredible what a little fresh air can do to you, it was such a nice break from stressful uni work.
Thank god we’re heading towards warmer, brighter days now. I loved this little trip, hopefully there will be more of them before exams are here!
This is also my blog post no. 100! I guess I would have hit 100 a long time ago if I managed to post something a bit more frequently, but hey, still feel proud that I’ve kept this blog alive for this long.

Tested out my 35 mm with some long exposure pictures of Edinburgh by night, with mixed results. Most of them got rather blurry (should have brought my tripod!), but some of them turned out quite nice!

Just some very improvised pictures I took the other day while tidying my room (everything is more fun than that, am I right?). The light in my room is perfect for some nice natural light-portraits, so in the lack of a better model, I went ahead and took a few “selfies” using my 35 mm lens and the timer.
Hurray for longer days, hurray for more and more sunlight, hurray for spring!
