Happy New Year!
This update is very personal.
Past October I lost my father. I already had planned a Christmas project for myself in digitizing his old film slides. Little did I know how bittersweet would the project end up being. However, it has been very therapeutic to go through those memories from the 70’s and 80’s. My dad was my age around those times, so it’s interesting to reflect upon them.
To commemorate him, I decided to publish a collection of my father’s photos. The project is on-going as there are thousands upon thousands of slides in our home.
The goal isn’t to live forever, the goal is to create something that will.

Boy, when it rains, it pours! Lots of stuff going on lately, so I’ll keep it short.
We took a day trip to Stockholm. Gathered a small photo story of our trip.
Tall Ship Races took place this weekend in Turku. Present were 96 vessels from 21 different countries with thousands upon thousands of visitors.
I went to see a baseball game between the Nokia White Sox and the Turku Black Sox, complete with a gallery.
It’s been a while!
Lately I’ve been quite busy with my day job, which has had an understandably inverse effect on my photo hobby. However, summer’s here and I have a few things lined up for the next few weeks. To start off, gallery for Turku Castle Tournament 2017 is up!
366 days, 366 photos. The project 366 was a rough one and surely a double-edged sword. I learned a lot from being forced to thing about photography every day, but at some times it really wasn’t fun and I hated feeling obligated to put out stuff I wasn’t happy with. All pictures for the project can be found here.
Good news, everyone! I will be taking over the Instagram account @scandinavianphotographers for Christmas week, starting on the 19th and ending on Christmas day. I have already put together a thematically cohesive collection I’ll be sharing, so see you there!
New front page up! I didn’t like how I could not post written updates on the old one – despite the rotating full screen gallery being pretty – so I mixed things up a bit.
Next up is a small overhaul of the galleries. I’m not quite satisfied with the hierarchy I currently have so I’ll have to give the structure a closer look.
The video “Views of Tohoku” is up!
In addition to thousands of photos, I also ended up with about 1.5 hours of video. I will probably compile more videos in the near future: this was just to vent my initial enthusiasm. 🙂
Tech for nerds: apart from some smaller projects this was my first time recording with the A6300. Most of my previous experience has been on the Sony XDCAM’s and the Canon DSLR’s. 99% of the time I used Cine4 gamma with S-Log3 color and ended up pretty happy with the results. I recorded in a mix of 1080p 100fps and 4K 24fps.
The Japan 2016 gallery is up!
The trip overall was very successful. While last year we only stayed in Tokyo, now we had the pleasure of seeing the magnificent nature around the Tohoku area.
Lightroom is currently showing 2748 exposures for the trip so I will surely add more to the gallery in the future. In contrast, 2014 and 2015 trips accumulated 1024 and 1312 exposures respectively.
