The Black Panther

Our own Black Panther

Our own Black Panther

I seem to be in a portraiture mood at the moment. I shot this image today at a cabin at a place called Månafossen in Frafjord, Rogaland.

I really don’t know if the Black Panther label is a politically inflamed term, forty years after the fists of the the athletes at the Mexico Olympics in 1968. I hope not, as this was the first term that came to my mind after seeing this image on my iMac. This is Anthony, a real nice guy from Houston and one of my all time favorite Americans. He’s our personal black panther, and just to make it clear: When I think of black panthers I think of grace and power.

The image was shot handheld using a 30mm sigma at f1.4 with ambient light and no effects. The usual postproduction in Photoshop CS4 with overlay blending, a high pass filter, and adjusting of exposere, and of course a little noise handling with Nik Dfine 2.0.

Anthony: You leave a powerful image!

      Hygelig å hilse på deg, Anne. Jeg har sett at du har vært innom Brodern med jevne mellomrom, så jeg stakk innhom en tur hos deg og fant ut at det så absolutt var en fin fotoblogg å besøke. Jeg har lagt deg til RSS-feeden min, så jeg tar nok turen innom med jevne mellomrom.
      Hyggelig at du liker det du finner her. Selv er jeg vel kanskje litt for kritisk til mine egne ting, noe som gjør at denne bloggen lever et mer hakkete liv enn bilen til en førstegangssjåfør. Desto hyggeligere at folk liker det de får når det først dukker opp noe.

      Well, as long as you have a window in front of the subject, these kind of images aren’t very hard to capture. Thanks, as always.
