I was recently handed down a couple of old SLR’s. It’s been a while since I have used one and I am looking for a few tips and to hear want type of film people are using and there advantages. Hopefully I will be able to share some of the results I get with them here in the future. In the meantime, I think they will make pretty good props.
Let me hear your tips and experiences in the comments.
After 5 years in Finland it is time for me to move back home to the UK, one of the reasons I have been a little quiet over the last few weeks. To commemorate the time I have spent in the country I wanted to share two photos.
Over the five years I have taken hundreds, maybe even thousands, of photos all over the country, a small selection has been shared on these pages. These two images represent that journey. When I arrived I went to a cabin by the lake to spend Midsummer with a group of friends. The photo above was taken of the midnight sun, a typical view over summer, and one of the first pictures I took in the country.
Now, Finland celebrates its 100th year of independence and across the country different celebrations and events take place. Below is a farm where they have created a Finnish flag out of hay bales. This photo was taken late at night, around 11pm, and one of the last I will take.
Of course I will be back to Finland in the future and still have plenty more photographs to share with you from my time in Finland.
If you are interested to see what I have done over the last five years in Finland you could read some of my favourite and most popular posts.
Last week I managed to visit the Finnish city of Tampere, once famous for its dolphins, it is now becoming a much visited destination in Finland. My photo is a very typical one for anyone visiting the industrial city.
If you would like to see an alternative view head over to my Facebook page for a panorama from pyynikki viewing tower. Enjoy!
Sculpture of Helsinki #21
ROAR27 is the latest work by Jussi TwoSeven and can be found on the platform of Kamppi Metro Station. The exhibit space is operated by HAM Helsinki and features different artist depending on the current theme of the museum. Having art in public spaces is an excellent way to expand people’s horizons, allowing them to see something that they wouldn’t necessarily see.
