Professional Viking, amateur photographer!

Hi all!

Well, first let me explain the title; it has been oh-I-don't-know, a thousand years since the Norwegian Vikings were plundering and raping (sorry, England), but if I may say so myself, us Norwegians still carry a healthy amount of genetic material from those days. It might or might not show in my photos, but keep this in mind whenever you consider trolling my posts or criticise my pictures

Seriously though, I'm 21 years old and I'm a student. I'm pretty fresh to photography, but I'm finding myself becoming increasingly addicted to this ttl-hobby

I've got a blog where I post pictures that I'm more or less happy with, with the faintest of hope that I'll get some constructive criticism, you can check it out here: Svens Billedklekkeri

Not much more to say, still I've gotta share something: Tomorrow I'm receiving my vivitar series 1 105mm macro. I don't think I'll be able to sleep tonight!

Welcome Sven!
Had a quick look through your blog - some cool looking architecture shots in there.
I see you are studying to be a civil engineer too.

Have fun with the new lens and share some of your photos in the 'post your photos' section

Welcome to the forum Sven.
An excellent intro.
You'll find a whole new world open to you when you get your macro lens. Enjoy it!
Great work so far on your website.
Look forward to seeing more of you here...
