Wäinön yksivuotiskuvaus

Muutamia valikoituja otoksia Wäinö-pojan yksivuotiskuvauksista. Tarkoituksena oli kuvata vain ulkona, mutta minulla oli sattumalta toiset kuvaukset juuri loppumassa lähistöllä, joten päätimme ottaa nopeasti muutamia perheruutuja edellisen setin valoilla. Tämän jälkeen siirryimme syksyiseen Kaivopuistoon, jossa otimme lähinnä soolokuvia pojasta. Wäinö oli niin tavattoman kiinnostunut omasta ultraäänikuvastaan, että siitä kuvan saaminen otti oman aikansa – taulu kun kääntyi salamannopeasti aina takaisin päin kuvattavaa.

The lake Päijänne is now pretty much frozen solid, but just a few days ago the combination of wind & water created some spectacular popsicles and frostings. Shot with a Nikkor 85mm 1.8

Things got a little hairy

A sunny morning, and a nighttime temperature that had fallen below zero just before sunrise. The ground crackled beneath my feet and the frozen dew had coated all the plants in white, icy “hair”. Hoping to get some snowfall real soon!  Shot with a Nikkor 35mm 1.8 PS: Do you see the “snake” in the second to last picture? I was actually thinking about the […]

A rare piece of sunshine

I was delighted to be woken up by sunshine on boxing day. Sunny days were a really scarce treat in december, and days off with sunshine even more so. The temperature was freezing, -20 c if I remember correctly. When it is this cold, the focusing system on my camera (the Nikon D3oos) tends to get a little unreliable after, say 40 minutes of shooting. […]
