Our Couples Portrait
I didn’t want to create a traditional couples portrait. Since I already had this pattern paper set up, I sprayed it with water, which added some extra transparency to it. I think this is my favorite among these paper experiments, and I really like the end result.
 
Colours of Shadows
I bought this 1m x 50m roll of paper meant for patterning. It’s a bit transparent but has a quite rough pattern. I tested some ideas and ended up photographing three of them over two days. The first one features my wife behind the paper, with three flashes behind her, each equipped with red, blue,...
 
Foggy Sight
For the last image, I positioned the ‘Smoke loop’ in the hood facing forward. In this image, the smoke trails from the holes can be clearly seen.
 
Meltdown
For the second image, that ‘smoke loop’ was under my hat. It was a bit of a tight fit, and the smoke came from either side of the hat. There were a couple of good exposures to make this image.
 
Melting Mind
I made this DIY smoke machine from a vape several years ago. Now, I’ve come up with the idea of attaching it to this tube loop and drilling several holes into it. That way, I can conceal it under my shirt, hood, or hat. This is the first image where the loop was under the...
 
Silver for Carnival
NFFF Silver for Carnival – A Humorous Photo Show video from Nordiskt Fotomästerskap Bildspel 2024. For this competition entry, I gathered my humorous images created over the years and endeavored to craft a coherent slideshow from them.
 
BTS for Flash Clock Hero Shot
Setup and photoshop edit for camera flash hero shot.
 
Flash Clock
The absolute requirement for this clock was that the time is automatically set. You just plug it into the power source, and it shows the correct time. The previous clock in that space had a 1-minute-per-month accuracy problem, and that was kind of a pain in the ass. I have wanted to test these small...
 
Edits 2023
As the final task of the year, I compiled a video showcasing my Photoshop edits from 2023, along with lighting diagrams. I typically review these editing videos myself to identify any mistakes I may have made, using them as a learning opportunity. I hope everyone has a happy and successful New Year!
 
80s Rocker
My son wanted an ’80s glam rock-style image, complete with all the clichés of that time. We set up a fictional backstage in my home studio and took some photos. Additionally, I took one of myself titled ’30 Years Later’ as an example of what that kind of lifestyle might lead to.
 
How I Move – Johanna
The “How I Move” series ventures forth with the timeless classic, the Citroën 2CV, its vibrant orange hue harmonizing seamlessly with the carpet of autumn leaves. While the backdrop trees retained a touch of green, they were deftly retouched to exude a more distinctly autumnal aura.
 
How I Move – Jussi
The third installment in the “How I Move” series for this autumn features the BMW 335xi, a vehicle belonging to my son’s close friend. I inquired if he’d like to participate in this photographic venture, and the result is captured in the following images.
 
Leather and Chrome
I snapped an extra shot during the last ‘How I Move’ shoot. I might’ve gone a bit heavier on the lighting, though I wasn’t entirely prepped. But hey, sometimes you have to work with what you’ve got.
 
How I Move – Timo
Introducing the second installment in the “How I Move” series for this autumn – this time featuring a striking motorcycle. The owner’s vision called for a raw, uncompromising concrete backdrop, a choice that harmonizes seamlessly with the essence of this remarkable machine.
 
How I Move – Mikko
Autumn’s arrival signals the perfect moment to resume the ‘How I Move’ series. Mikko, a fellow photographer from our local camera club, was the inaugural subject. Stay tuned for more to follow.
 
Eternal Sleep
This time, there’s no fancy song or poem, just an old idea that fits perfectly into this series. The photo features a mix of miniature and life-sized elements. I gathered the branches from a nearby forest during spring and let them dry. The tombstone and coffin were already made for a previous picture. The raven...
 
Gold for Dystopia
NSFF Gold for Dystopia photo video from Nordiskt Fotomästerskap Bildspel 2023. The photo series “Dystopia” was completed some time ago, but I decided to turn it into a video presentation when a photo competition was announced by the Nordic Society of Photography. These photos from the series are still dear to me and, considering the...
 
Edits 2022
As the final task of the year for my photography, I updated my portfolio and created a video showcasing my Photoshop edits from 2022, including lighting diagrams. I tend to watch these edit videos through myself to identify any mistakes I may have made and use them as a learning opportunity for myself too. I...
 
Freddy vs Jason
I first bought the Freddy Krueger glove to put it on the shelve. Then I thought that why not make a photo shoot out of it. To make an outfit complete, I needed to buy a couple of more things like the mask and the iconic shirt. My son promised to be Freddy, and I...
 
Intro Video
I wanted to add an intro video to my youtube channel and therefore played with my photos in DaVinci resolve. It’s a very capable program which also means not the easiest one. I took my time and learned a lot more about making the animations, speed ramps, etc. and now have a couple of new...
