Eeva Karhunen contacted Kuopio Camera Club to arrange a photoshoot. Old factory in Kuopio was selected as a scene for the shoot. I have never done a photoshoot with an actual model so at first I wasn’t sure if I’m going to the shoot. There was two other camera club members in the shoot, so
Association of Finnish Camera Clubs (Suomen Kameraseurojen Liitto) has annual ‘Seuracup’ (Cup of Clubs?). Kuopio Camera Club attended and three of my photos got to the exhibition. One even with certificate of honor. Me, happy.
My son wanted to have sporty portrait. I had read Scott Kelby’s “Light It, Shoot It, Retouch It” (Amazon) earlier and remembered that it has a setup (chapter 6) that could be used as a starting point for this. I don’t have all the gear that was used in the original setup so I used speedlights
This photo jumped to #7 at Fickr explore. I didn’t think it was that special when I uploaded it. I Actually liked “Cold Drops” more. Never the less the photo went to my most viewed/commented/favorited photo in just one weekend. A big thank to all of you.
