Anchr iOS / Android app by Adam Lithner

I've been taking some pictures of an iOS / Android app called Anchr. The purpose is to quickly share content by placing an anchor in Google Maps. The venture is created by a friend of mine Marcus Skagerberg and his brother Kristoffer Skagerberg. Go to www.anchrapp.com if you're interested in testing the pre-release version.

What to think of when taking pictures at events! by Adam Lithner

I wrapped up last week by shooting a travel expo at Stockholm Waterfront Congress Centre. The client wanted my pictures to cover a variety of aspects for future PR and sales purposes. Subsequently I was taking pictures of everything from dance shows to tea brewing, old people, young people and everything in between. To me the most important aspect of this kind of work is to be polite and make sure that people are okay with being in your pictures. I try to always ask people either before or after I take the shot. I let the moment and what kind of picture I am after decide which goes first. Be sure to notice that if the pictures are to be used commercially by the client (or anyone else) a model release may be necessary. 

Another important aspect is to be right on time and deliver the material right on time or even, better yet, before deadline. And as always, remember to check your gear the day before. If you have any comments or suggestions to this post please let me know in the comments section below and don't forget to subscribe to future updates.

LATEST TRENDS: Flipboard by Adam Lithner

Flipboard (iOS / Android) is an app that I have been using a lot over the last couple of years. With Flipboard you can gather information from an abundance of magazines and newspapers without spending a lot of time or effort on research. It's especially useful to keep up with current trends within certain areas such as photography or technology. 

You can go to my public profile by clicking the picture.

"Flipboard is your personal magazine. Used by millions of people everyday, it’s a single place to keep up on the news, follow topics you care about and share stories, videos and photos that influence you." 

Building a PC by Adam Lithner

I recently built my own PC, and here it is. This is a great machine for editing photos and videos, rendering large files etc. It will surely power a 4k monitor in the near future thanks to the dedicated graphics of nvidia. The case is perfectly silent thanks to noise canceling materials and carefully selected components keeps the noise to a minimum. I've compiled a list with all the parts at pcpartspicker.

Rose & Born by Adam Lithner

Recent work for The Scholar at Rose & Born, Stockholm.

"Ever since the beginnings of Rose & Born in 1989, our store has always been somewhat apart from Stockholm's central business district. This is a deliberate choice. Rose & Born has always aimed to be different, not just in how we see our style but also in the feelings we want our store to evoke."
