Tenka Gammelgaard

spotted the studio of Danish artist Tenka Gammelgaard over at mackapär and emmas designblogg this week. the fact that she paints her paint brushes is pretty much the cherry on top for me.

images from mackapäremmas designblogg and tenka’s blog.

it might be time to get out my old camera out and play around with some black and white film again. quite tricky, but so worth it when you manage to get it right. here are some old and new black & white photos i’ve been enjoying.

this wedding

i wish more wedding photography was like this. simple, no props, no stunts, no bells and whistles – just capturing a real moment. photograph by courtney brooke.

i don’t think that dude in the background is a prop by the way.
