    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Thanks for all the love guys!


    That's actually a jacket/SC from our brand E-F-V.



    I look for places with cool lighting. I'm really happy with this location, since it's right in between my office and apartment. It's underneath a bridge in central Stockholm, with some great spotlights giving a pretty cool, dramatic kind of lighting + there's not too much people around either.

    I've taken notes from the SWD side about framing.

    Also, I got a great compact camera last year that's very easy to use (Fuji X100). I shoot in raw, so there's lots of information stored in the pictures, which helps me get better exposure if the light is too low + adjust for the yellow tint that artificial light often leaves in pictures.

    E-F-V the brand. Yes. Very cool. Will have a look.

    It takes a good eye to recognize a good photo site like that. Will have to see if my camera does raw and if I can use it to take better photos.

    Edit: Oh look you have high rise trousers. I love those. LULZ

    I try to take pictures when there's still daylight outside. We've got lots of windows that let in quite a bit of light. Otherwise I just turn on all the lamps in the room. I think you can tell a difference in quality between daylight and lamplight pictures though. Its hard getting the colours right when you don't have natural light.

    Yeah, no comparison. Natural so much better. Sadly, there is not a spot in my house that gets enough natural daylight and that is also a decent looking place for pictures, that I can use.

    EFV, I have that same camera. For better white balance indoors, use the 'custom' setting (very easy to get to - press 'WB' on the dial and follow the instructions. Measure against a neutral background, like the white wall near where you shoot).

    I'm guessing this only has an effect on jpegs and not RAW, but the X100 is renowned for its jpeg quality (it's all I use).

    Speaking of green - wearing 1/2 of my donegal green suit again, trying that ever-dangerous combination of SC, tie, and jeans again. Personally, this suit has been as versatile as a navy blazer for my wardrobe and work circumstances.

    Thank you. Just a wallet. It's pronounced, I think, because the fabric has confirmed around it at this point.

    Thanks! It's made to measure from Beckett & Robb. The jacket is completely unstructured and unlined (and thus ridiculously comfortable).
