About Me

Maybe-not-really-20-something-anymore from Norway who likes to scrapbook and take photos documentarystyle and dreams of photojournalism when not working as a photojournalist and that's pretty much what this blog is about. And I like it this way.



My Scrapbooking

Been scrapbooking since late fall 2005. Currently fortunate enough to be a part of the design teams for Hambly Screenprints, Fancy Pants Designs and Pencil-Lines. ♥

~~ sigh. bleh. ~~

Posted by Ania On Wednesday, June 13, 2007


Why do we always crave for better things.....things we cannot get right now?? At least me....all of a sudden I'm hit by a kinda depression...I want this....Nikkor 18-200mm.....why, you already do have a Sigma 18-200mm you might ask (the old one, not the new one with OS :( ). Yeah well. That I do. But ever since I got my beloved Nikkor 50mm f/1.4.....I realized how much lenses actually do for your pictures.....and I want more! This Nikkor 18-200mm does start at the same f/3.5 but ends at f/5.6 instead of my current f/6.3. And it's got SWM (tbh not sure if that makes any diff from my sigma....maybe a lil bit) BUT most important, a VR system - a stabilizator allowing you taking much much better pictures even though you handhold the camera....... *sighs heavily* I woudln't mind a fixed f/2.8 or whatever if there are one - for the whole zoomarea...*dream*, but chances are that the price for THAT one is way too high (17-55mm f/2.8 with NO VR is like, 12k nok...I *assume* it's fixed f/2.8 throughout the zoom but Im not sure :p) .

And while we're wishing for things we can't get (not atm anyways...).......I *so* want a D200 model.....I know...there's no automodes, just the manual ones...sok, I very very rarely use the auto ones these days anyway (and really, 3/4 of the manualmodes seem pretty much automatic to me)...but hey, I'll settle for a D80 too!! *sighs more*

And oh. I wanna know how to cleanse the lenses properly and throughout. GOsh I'm so needy tonight.

Ps. Yattayatta. I know. It's the photographer who makes the pictures, not the camera. Learn more, get back when you actually KNOW stuff. Blah blah blah. I still want the best I can get nevertheless. Don't we all? :p

Ohwell. I really hate to do posts without pictures, so here's two from todays Summercelebration at the kindergarten. Yeah. Amalie's a leghugger. And Adrian ain't missin' an opportunity to join in on the fun either (he's behind Amalie). And yes. That's my legs.


*lang klagepost fordi jeg ønsker meg bedre fotoutstyr*
Det er nå jeg skulle ønske jeg hadde en rik onkel i USA ellernoe sånt. Type monopol-onkel :) Eller en vinner-lottokupong. Men da må en begynne med lotto da liksom.
Jeje. Bildene er fra dagens besøk i barnehagen - sommeravslutningen der Adrian mottok medalje siden han slutter i bhg for å begynne på skolen til høsten. Joda, jeg tok de bildene også, men de obligatoriske bildene var litt kjedelige og sånn..viser heller de småartige =)

    Ja, det er jammen mye man ønsker seg. Vi får begynne å spille lotto. *fnis*
    Flotte bilder du har tatt!
    Vi skal på sommeravslutning i barnehagen i dag.

    Man vil vel alltid ha det som er bedre tror jeg. Jeg håper på å gjøre et scoop på portrettlinse i Japan, evt Kina i høst. Bildet av Amalie var kjempesøtt! Jeg syns faktisk du kan forsvare å ønske deg bedre utstyr, du har blitt en dyktig fotograf :)

    Kjenner meg veldig igjen i det du skriver her. Har fortsatt ikke klart å få kjøpt meg speilrefleks for jeg vil jo ha det BESTE!!! Men hva er det beste. Hvilke linser skal jeg ha, og skal jeg gå for Canon eller Nikon og hvilken modell???

    Tror nok som amatørfotograf at det ikke spiller så stor rolle, men jeg vil ha det beste allikevel. Ja, ja man får vel bare ta et valg og leve med det, men jeg skjønner tanken din veeeldig godt altså...

    Rik onkel i Amerika høres helt greit ut. En sånn vil jeg også ha - en generøs en :)
    Knall fint bilde av Adrian - så sterke, klare farger og så herlig glimt i øynene - må bare bli glad av å se på det.
    Misunner deg det scrapperommet, det ser ut om om det blir veldig flott. Skulle gjerne hatt så mye "scrappeplass" og boltre meg på.
    Kos deg i varmen, og ha en fortsatt fin-fin uke.

    åh, jeg vil også ha meg nikon D200, perfekt kamera!

    og en linse med 2.8 all over hadde ikke vært feil det! jeg har lekt meg med en som er 70-200, L-serien til Canon, med 2.8 lysstyrke! daaamn! synd at den er godt over 30cm lang og koster 11.000 :P
