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.

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?

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!

A couple (a lot) of photos from my summer in Norway! It’s been such a nice summer with so many exciting happenings! Right now I’m just enjoying my last days in Norway, packing, voting, spending time with my family and getting everything sorted before going back to Edinburgh. At this moment I’m currently in a fancy hotel in Bergen with Elisabeth to see Kaizers Orchestra for the very last time. It’s sad to know that this will be the last time I get to see them live, never thought a band could mean so much for me. My plan is to enjoy every second of this concert!
Not to long before I’m back in Edinburgh again as well, can’t wait to get settled in the new flat and get started with my new courses!
Lots and lots of blog post are queuing with tons of photos from my summer, so stay tuned!

I didn’t have time to take a lot of photos with my camera in April, since I spent almost every day at the library, but I did get a new phone and took a bunch of photos with that one! If you’d like to follow me on Instagram, click here or search for marie_viking!

Sunniva, winter ’11
Been spending my days at the library, so not much photos so far this week! But I’m planning a little adventure this weekend, hopefully the weather will be splendid! Got a new lens for my camera as well, so planning to give it a test run 😀

Some pictures of Sunniva taken the day before new years eve in ’10.
A day when the temperatures were freezing, but the light was just perfect.
It is finally December and frost on the ground in the morning. I love it!

Day two! The liquid sunshine disappeared and left us with some real sun and nice temperatures. We left the hostel and Loch Ness early in the morning, heading for the Isle of Skye! We were told that Skye most likely would be a rather cold and misty experience, but to our big surprise (and the guide who couldn’t stop saying “oh my god, a very, very nice day indeed”) instead of fog and cold we were met with sunshine and warmth! Hurray!
We stopped in a tiny town for lunch, and me and my sunshine went on our own walk discovering this old tower of some sort with the most amazing view. A perfect place to act like the Vikings we are and scream “Norwaaay”!

Part two of the shoot I had with Sunniva this summer!
Tomorrow is my last day in Norway before leaving for my new life in Edinburgh! Can’t wait!

The first pictures from me and Sunniva‘s new shoot taken a little while back. Just got back from a weekend in Oslo, visiting some of my friends before leaving for Scotland! Only a week and a half left now, can’t wait to finally be on my way!
