Kasper Nymann, based in Denmark, is DIR’s December 2017 featured Instagram photographer.
“Photography has always been an interest of mine, and in 2010 I became a Microstock photographer. While I’ve had some photography lessons through my graphic designer education, I am a self-taught photographer, which gives me my own style. My favorite genre is landscape photography. I love being out in the field searching for beautiful scenery to photograph. I especially enjoy being out early in the morning, when the sun is about to rise. Everything is quiet, and you get the best pictures when the sun is low in the sky.
“This photo reminds me you don’t have to travel to find beautiful spots. It was an early winter morning before the sun had shown the first sign of light and I could tell it would be a beautiful sunrise. I grabbed my Sony 7R and rode my bike down to the lake, close to where I live. The lake was partly frozen and this wooden post was a great front objective.”
Nymann took this image with a Sony 7R on a monopod and a Sony 16–35mm f/2.8 lens with the LA-EA4 adapter. He edited it with Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop CC.
