About

Most of my professional life I have been a scientist with a doctorate in microbiology 1982 and been professor in Microbial ecology at Lund University, Sweden. I have also worked for longer periods at the University of Massachusetts in Amherst,  USA 1983-1985 and at Universidad de Alicante, Spain 2003-2008. Furthermore, I have had cooperation and research projects in Central America. I decided to retire early in 2009.

My photography interest began as a young teenager in the early 1960´s. At that time mainly in black and white and good training in dark room work. After my retirement I have been able to spend more time on photography and developed my autodidact photo knowledge with the courses The photographic image I and II at Malmö University, Sweden, which been fun, useful and instructive.

  1. Your macro pictures of flowers are incredible, such sharpness ! That’s something I’m a bit struggling with. Do you think it is important to invest to a middle-range lense or at least a “macro” lense (in order to reach that level of sharpness) ? Or it is just a question of practice and “tricks” 🙂

    Thank you for visiting my blog, I look forward seeing more incredible photos ! Okay, I must say it, I’m so jealous of your talent right now, I hope one day I’ll be able to achieve that 🙂 Have fun, and continue to amaze us !

    • I am glad you like my photos. I prefer a macro lens and I use a 100mm f/2.8 from Canon. The problem with macro is that you have a very shallow depth of field and therefore you may need to do focus stacking. There are several books e.g. Julian Cremona: Extreme Close-Up Photography and Focus Stacking (2014) which is wortwhile reading.
