From Disruption to Multimedia

From Disruption to Multimedia

This is one theme I have been talking about a lot lately. Earlier this summer I spoke about this in Nordic Freelance 2013 seminar, now last monday I spoke about it in Tallinn, Estonia. I just thought I summarize the outline of my thinking here. In case somebody might find it useful… Or someone might want to disagree? The argument I am …

Seppo Saves — Multimedia

Seppo Saves — Multimedia

(Click image to see the multi­media) This is something I have spent the last two weeks working with (in post-production) and finally it is ready to see the light of day. And I am pretty darn proud of it. It is a chapter in our multi­media series called “Photo­graphy Legends” — and it portrays the legendary photo­jour­nalist Seppo Saves …

The father of Picasso

It’s been extremely busy month which I’ve spent it mostly teaching. Right after coming home from Val di Fiemme I did a four day intensive on sports photo­graphy (working with photo­grapher Aki Loponen — a colla­bo­ration which I enjoyed immensely) and almost right after that one I started a two week intensive on journa­listic multi­media and -video. The sports photo­graphy course was …

You’re awfully quiet lately” a friend of mine asked me the other day. True, have not been writing anything for a long time. I did the Tour de Ski early January and was scheduled to do the EC of skating, but Kiira got an injury in her leg and that was the end of that. Thus: I was …

Multimedia: The Independence Reception 2012

Multimedia: The Independence Reception 2012

(Click here to see the multi­media) It is the most important social happening of the year — as a social event, you could say it is sort of our Academy Awards. It is also the most viewed TV-program of the year. I’ve covered the event several times — yes, you might argue that it goes into the …

Finnfoto Award

(Kuva yllä tänään ilmes­ty­västä Kamera-lehdestä 12/2012, jossa pieni haastettelu). Kirjoitan tänään englan­niksi — toisella kotimai­sella kuten aina sanon. Perus­telen tämän jutun lopussa. Remember Jaws? “Just when you thought it was safe to go into the water again…?” I think this was the opening line of the trailer… Anyway, what can I say? I wrote in the beginning of …

Do you leave a shadow when you are dead?

Do you leave a shadow when you are dead?

Dad — do you leave a shadow when you are dead?” asked my six-year old daughter last summer. And I was blown away with the question. Seriusly, what an incre­dible question to hear from a six-year old. You have to see it in the context: late August, sun setting as we walk back to the house her hand in mine …

Everybody reading this blog in the past knows where I stand when it comes to our future: I am strongly of the opinion that paper as a medium for daily news will slowly fade out (actually, not so slowly…) and the future is elsewhere. Let me just refer you to my last post — and leave it to that. Everything …

Shooting 360°x180° Images — from a Helicopter

This is a small demo. Please note: this works (properly) only with HTML5 compliant browser — such as Safari on a Mac. It works on iPad2 (i.e. Mobile Safari) but it does NOT work with iPad 1st gen. nor iPhone (except — I was told — it does work with iPhone 4S) — due to non-optimized media and subsequently high processing load. Thats’ …
