360° Aerial Photography

360° Aerial Photography

We are doing an interesting project in Lahti (LAMK a.k.a Lahti University of Applied Sciences), where we were assigned to shoot some video footage and stills images on our local outdoor possi­bi­lities. The client did not ask for it, but I volun­teered to shoot some 360° stills as well — I figured that since we already were on …

Outcastes — a Multimedia

Outcastes — a Multimedia

My wife looked over my shoulder when I was doing the last bits of editing yesterday. “This is the most impressive thing you’ve done in multi­media”, she said. Now talk about a compliment. And not that I agree… but I have to admit, I am proud of it. Sure, the next thing will be better — as it always should be. But meanwhile: …

Sochi Olympics, Day 1

Sochi Olympics, Day 1

Feb 6th, 2014 The Sochi 2014 opening ceremony just started and I am watching it on TV. No, I did not go to the ceremony, it would have meant probably c. 10 hours including all the travelling, waiting and actual ceremony included. Yesterday was a total killer and I preferred to take it easy today. Funny, working seven hours today …

Redundancy Revisited

Redundancy Revisited

Came to think about this after a FB discussion I had with somebody. The argument was about the need for speed in todays media. An argument I have heard so many times. Basically: How speed is of the essence and the winners of that battle will be the ones to survive in this game. I don’t remember how often I have had …

Val di Fiemme 2013

Val di Fiemme 2013

(Click here or the image above to enter the multi­media) Back on the road. A quick pitstop back home after Nove Mesto and then off to Italy for couple of weeks to cover the WC of XC-skiing. Looking forward to it — as beautiful mountains all around me probably allow some skiing myself… :-) But anyway: Team Finland …

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 …

Shooting 360°x180° Images — from a Helicopter

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’ …

What the Hell Are You Thinking?

What the Hell Are You Thinking?

I’ve tried now three times to write something about this, but I just can’t do it coherently . Sorry. It’ll turn into a long whining story which somebody will try to turn against me .… and as we are talking about the national religion — ice hockey — so I really should watch my step. But I just have to say: I was …

Oslo 2011 Skiing: A Multimedia Approach

Oslo 2011 Skiing: A Multimedia Approach

Been here now three days: fog, rain, snow… It is a question of choosing your profession, I guess, but I just don’t enjoy being wet all the time — nor does my camera equipment. Plus in this total “grayness” it is hard to make photo­graphy worth showing. But yesterday I made something which I consider might be worth sharing. In November during …
