Finally got to scan a neg today that I shot just before christmas at the beach with my Graflex 4x5.
I just loved the light on that day. I wish I'd had some color film with me as well....

Juuso Noronkoski

Found Juuso's work through a facebook group called Suomi kuvaa.
This is from his series called Höytiä.

Burst pipe, pretty much homeless, had a flu and falling behind uni work. I think that sums up the beginning of 2011 pretty good.
But things can only get better from here yeah?

Just thought I'd do a quick post and upload a photo from a shoot I did with Joni last summer.
Check out his music, it's pretty damn good stuff.

Feeling this band and song right now...

Saturday, January 15, 2011


Shot some promo photos for ROE band whilst I was back home in Finland with my 4x5 Graflex. This was pretty much the first time I've shot anything like this and I quite enjoyed it. I wanted the photos to be really dark, so that the guys almost blend in with the background, but their faces really pop out and I think it worked out nice.
I'll post rest of the images when I'm done editing them...

Had to post this as well. This is a screen grab at 100% zoom and the detail is just amazing. this is why I wanted to get a 4x5 camera. Loving it!

I was photographing my new project again today with my trusty old Bronica and I have to say I was quite excited when I was waiting for my films (two rolls) to get processed at a local lab here in Jyvaskyla.
I knew I had some good shots, because I shot a few sheets of polaroids as well and I couldn't wait to get home, start scanning them, do a quick edit and plan what to shoot tomorrow.
BUT, I felt like kicking myself and drinking a few beers when I began scanning the first image, because they all looked horrible. The shop that I took my films to, messed up the processing and they are all pretty much fucked. So now I have to reshoot everything again tomorrow...
What I learned from this is was when you find a good lab, stick to it and process all your film there, so you won't get any funny surprises like I did today or just process everything yourself. Gutted...
