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. 

Equipment & Exif

Nikon D800, Nikon 16 - 35 mm f/4.0 VR & Sirui Tripod R-4203L and Sirui Ball Head K-40X
ISO 100, 30 secs. f/4.0 @ 20 mm

Both of these were edited with my upcoming Lightroom Presets. I have been developing the set for a while now and will do some more work on the new preset collection and hopefully it will be released in the next couple of weeks!

In The Spotlight

Hi everyone. Usually I try to find something storytelling on a location, but sometimes you find it out later. This was the fact here. I even moved the other bench, when I was there off from the picture to have a cleaner photo - after I saw this photo back from my camera, but the fact that the another bench is hiding behind the tree actually creates this interesting story.. 

Hope you like it!

These Pieces Fit

I was driving through some places few nights ago and stopped on this park to see if there was something to shoot. This bench was nicely in the middle of these two trees. Some fog and light to make it interesting. Waiting for more nights like these.
