Photographing Hans Rosling – Behind the Scenes

Photographing Hans Rosling – Behind the Scenes

In the very beginning, way before Gustaf or I even got involved with Medicor, we had dreamed up this ‘fantasy’ issue where we would have a huge story covering Hans Rosling’s work, and have him posing on the cover. We would have a minimalistic design, we would have great photos; we even wanted to have a launch party with Bill Gates, but that’s a story for another time. After Gustaf became the editor for Medicor, …

Why I Am Getting Worse and Worse At Holding A Conversation

Why I Am Getting Worse and Worse At Holding A Conversation

My girlfriend arrived late last night and we were just sitting and talking. For some reason, we got into talking about latin and started bragging about our latin skills.

Your First Full-Frame Nikon DSLR – D600 vs D800

If you are considering upgrading to a Nikon full-frame DSLR, like I am, there is no better time than the present. Nikon just announced its ‘low price’ full-frame camera Nikon D600 (MSRP $2099/€ 2.099), a sort of little brother to the Nikon D800. If you live in the US, then there is a $1000 difference between the D600 and the D800, but if you live in Europe like me, Nikon has for some peculiar reason …

Is Hobby Photography Worth the Cost?

Is Hobby Photography Worth the Cost?

Back in the day, photography was something exclusive to a select few; not only was it expensive, it was also inaccessible and complicated. With the digital revolution, smartphones, Instagram, suddenly everyone is a photographer, and I guess me included. In a way, it has democratized the whole business. A lot of people study photography.
