Out in the nature, I really like the forest.
What time of day do your prefer to shoot, night or day?

What brought you into photography?
My dad (@gyllenhans), he introduced me to photography and sinced then I kept going!
How long do you spend editing a photo?
It really depends but it can take from 5 minutes to one hour. Best thing is to capture the perfect shot from the beginning.

Dont´t read the instruction book, learn your camera by using it. Put the camera in manual mode and get out there. Early mornings or in the evenings.

Nature, to give the green a twist.. Moody ones with mist and b&w portraits.
