Importance of being able to dream

I’ve been always happy to be able to dream, dream about my life and something else. That is why I probably love to create things. The photographing career was not the first thing in my mind when I was a young teenager. Actually I wanted for a long time pursue financial career and probaby wanted…

Summer wedding memories: Maarit and Baddy

I have to admit that I was a little bit nervous when I first met Maarit and Baddy in Tampere spring time. The couple from Netherlands seemed to be so much of my dream wedding couple that I was nervous would they like me. But Maarit and Baddy were both outgoing, superiously in love, happy, funny and really nice so I think we straight away “clicked” and talked so much about their wedding already in the first meeting. I was so happy that they were totally the dream wedding couple!

Maarit and Baddy’s wedding day in June arrived fast. The weather was amazing, warm and sunny with some occasional clouds to cool the temperature down. It was a perfect weather for perfect wedding day. We had decided to start the wedding with “First Look” -session because Maarit had not seen Baddy all dressed up for wedding and Baddy hadn’t also seen Maarit in her beautiful wedding dress. I picked up Baddy from hotel and we went to wait for Maarit near Tammerkoski-canal. Baddy was looking quite cool when waiting, but I could tell that when I said Maarit and the car is over there, I could see he got really excited.

Valokuvauskävely – Photowalking Tampere 21.7.2011 – Special Guest Gemma Clarke

Our special Gemma Clarke Photowalking – Valokuvauskävely Tampere 21.7.2011 started from Tampere railway station. To you, who do not know Gemma Clarke she is one of the best Australian wedding and portrait photographer and business owner of Gemma Clarke Photography (http://www.gemma-clarke.co​m/). She is visiting Finland and staying a couple of days in Tampere. She has been a part of Valokuvauskävely – Photowalking Tampere group for awhile already and now there was possibility to join our fun. The weather was not the prettiest with occasional thunderstorm showers, but we did host a special photowalk for her and visited Tampere sights (like Tampere Spy Museum) with our photowalking style twist.

This time I did this photowalk again with a bit of my own twist: I was photowalking only with iPhone 3GS (I’m waiting for iPhone 5…) with 3 megapixel camera. And make it as much fun as possible, I edited images in my mobile phone. After importing images to the computer, I just resized them and added logo in Adobe Lightroom – no other edits in Lightroom.
