Can I play with madness

“Can I play with madness”, Yes I can and I do. I have always been a huge fan of the band “Iron Maiden” and the Eddie artwork they have. That single cover has always been a one of the favorites of mine so I though that I’ll made one self portrait inspired with that.


Niko’s Poster

Niko asked me to make a poster for his coming photo exhibition. He has made photos inspired by the lyrics of the Finnish band called Poets of the Fall. For the poster I tried to keep the melancholic feel found from the photos and the lyrics.

Trierenberg Catalog

Stoked to see two of my photos in full-page in Trierenberg catalog.


Petrified Layers

Short video about editing Petrified that shows all the layers (some of them in the category ‘not sure why I did that?’). If you want to see texts in Photoshop please see this in 1080p.


Apocalyptic Encounter

Rubber in gas mask that was used in ‘Life of Helmut’ shoot seems to be degrading. I still managed to get it to the styrofoam head without it breaking completely so I got this close up.


Summer Photo Walk

We held a photo walk in Kuopio centre yesterday. We had to cut it short since it started raining more heavily but managed to got some photos. My texture folder got some nice additions too.


DFM 2014

This year I participated to annual digifotomaraton held by Kuopio camera club. There were two categories, 6h and longer 48h. In longer category post processing was allowed so it suited better for me. Still making ten pictures with given themes in that time was a bit too much since I hate deadlines. Well now I have tried that and can get back to normal routine where pictures born naturally with no rush to get them ready. Themes and pictures were:

  1. Flying / Lentoon!, Falling
  2. Ei mitään rakettitiedettä / Not a rocket science, The problem
  3. Innovatiivinen kaupunki / innovative city, Innovative design
  4. Menestys / Success, Winner takes it all
  5. Valmista tekoa / Made ready, About to be ready
  6. Shelfie / Shelfie, Shelfie
  7. Aikuisten oikeesti / Really really, The Serious Obstacle
  8. Kansainvälinen / International, Travelling Man
  9. Sininen on uusi musta / Blue is the new black, The blue game
  10. Keltanokka / Yellow nose (rookie), The poor looser

Birds

I’m not a bird photographer so I thought that I’ll take some bird shots. I guess I wanted to do something different from the usual. Tested several styles but I liked most of these blurred shots.
