|About @ Flora.cyberia|
Flora.cyberia is a project of one person, i.e. me, Ulf Liedén. ;-)
I'm currently living in Karlskrona in south eastern Sweden, together with my wife Christina and my son Jonathan, who was born in 2000.
Flora.cyberia is the result of some years of plant photographing, starting back in 1993. I had just begun my studies of geography and botany at the university of Cologne, Germany. Most of the warm season I spent "in the bush", crawling around with camera and tripod, searching for the next plant and the best light conditions. The older picture on Flora.cyberia, e.g. the pictures from South Tirol, where taken during this time.
Currently, all photographs for Flora.cyberia are taken with my relatively new Nikon Coolpix 5400 with 5.1 megapixel. This is a great camera, which produces technically superb pictures. The handling of the camera is good, although there are minor drawbacks, like the relatively small display.
The Nikon was not my first digital camera, though. I originally started my digital adventure with a Casio 3500 with a 3.3 megapixel chip. This camera is also great for close up photography, but slow in comparison to todays standards. All the pictures from Andalucia where shot with this camera.
The older, pre-digital pictures where taken with my Pentax P50 with an Pentax 50mm lens. For the close-ups I used macro lenses adding two or four dioptrines. The most used film was Agfa CT 100, but I also used Kodak Ectachrome 100 frequently. The dia positives was scanned using an Epson Perfection 1200 (1200 x 1200 dpi). All the pictures from South Tirol come from this time.
The tripod is a Manfrotto 141RC, and sometimes I use my Mecablitz flash.
