Thomas Ekstrom x VSCO = Fantastic Photographs of Officer Training School
Thomas Ekstrom recently had the opportunity to photograph the Norwegian Army’s officer training school for Monocle and used VSCO to process all of his images. The results are nothing short of amazing.
Ekstrom described his experience with the group of officers-in-training: “They were in the middle of ‘hell-week,’ where they sleep out in the forest, only for 2-3 hours a night, carry rucksacks weighing almost half their bodyweight and go through both physical and mental trials. I think this was the 5th day; so, they were pretty exhausted and didn’t care about me being there whatsoever. This really allowed me to capture some unfiltered emotions.” He utilized VSCO to process all of his images, using a customized preset he made based off the standard offerings. Here are a few of the images that were published.
