Let’s Dance To Joy Division by Hanne Grønnestad

“Photo is taken by Mr. Selftimer, and the models are myself and my rabbit, Pelle. “

Equipment: Canon 450D

Hanne Grønnestad – I am a 19 year old girl from Kopervik, a small town in Western Norway. Presently, I am a senior high school student where I study natural sciences. After graduation I plan to study photography in Norway for a year.
In my spare time I like to photograph, mostly portraits, landscapes and animals. When I am not busy photographing, I like to be in activity and do sports such as running, swimming, climbing and playing tennis.
Furthermore, whenever I have time and money I like to travel to see new exciting places, often where there is an opportunity for good photography locations.
My photography interest started when I was fifteen years old, and received my reflex camera. I started from basics, taking pictures of flowers for example. I developed my knowledge through self -study and with help from friends who volunteered as models. I like when the pictures tell a story, and explain more than meets the eye.
