Lost In The Mist

For the last couple of weeks I have been super busy working on my Exhibition Atmosphere. If you are in Helsinki, please go and check it out! More info can be found on my previous blog post and from Caisa Gallery. Even though I have been super busy, I have managed to photograph every day for the past few weeks. However the weather has not been great where I live. Here are two self-portraits from the time. Hope you enjoy my photos!

Please leave me a message here if you want to meet me in Caisa Gallery! Meet the artist day is on 13th, December.

From The Darkness

I have been photographing now every day for the past week and a half - it feels great. I have always thought, that my photography inspiration comes only time to time, but creating an old habit is far more inspiring to me. I have always loved to take long walks and enjoy fresh air and by taking my camera with me every day, it gives me inspiration to continue to do that. What are your old habits that you would want to start again?

A couple of days ago we had some beautiful morning fog. This was photographed just couple of kilometers from where I live. Hope you like it! The dark mood was created using one of my upcoming Lightroom presets. 

Equipment & Exif

Nikon D800, Nikkor 70-300 mm f/4.5 - 5.6 VR
140 mm, f/5.0, ISO 100 & 1/200 sec.
