I had a week-long holiday on Manhattan. Here are some photographic outcomes!
I attended a scientific conference at the Jesus College in Cambridge in February 2017. Here are a couple of shots of the beautiful old college.
I took these ice photos while hiking in Sipoonkorpi National Park east of Helsinki, Finland.
I found some of my darkroom experiments from early 2000's. The technique for creating these ortraits was quite involved. The pictures were shot with a 4x5 view camera and a very strong studio flash on orthocromatic film Agfaortho. Why orthocromatic film? It is not sensitive to red light, so the negatives could be developed in the darkroom using lith developer while seeing the development in progress. This gives an extraordinary look to the highlights (dark parts of the negatives). The prints were developed in lith as well, producing strong blacks in the images. Finally, the prints were toned with sepia followed by gold. Enjoy!
It's delightfully cold now in Helsinki. I took a few frigid shots around sunset (3pm).
Eating and relaxing for a couple of days creates an urge to photograph. Macro photography is a great option since miniature worlds are everywhere!
Spiders, those lovely eight-legged creatures, are my eternal favourites as photographic topics. Here are my best spider shots from year 2016 (sadly, the season starts to be over for this year!).
Let me start with a classic: a perky, joyous, and cute jumping spider.
Evarcha sp., family Salticidae.
