Visual Storytelling

Visual Storytelling

I’ve been away from the screen and the keyboard for a long time. The whole of last year was definitely a turning point of some kind… ending of something which had become an essential part of my professional life (i.e. high profile sports photography)  and beginning of something else… (more about that later). And while busy trying to […]

Sochi Olympics, Day 18: Wrapping Up for the iPad

Sochi Olympics, Day 18: Wrapping Up for the iPad

Feb. 23rd, 2014 I started writing my blog from Sochi when opening ceremony was going on in Adler. There is some symmetry in the fact that I am writing this last chapter (from here) as the fireworks light the sky during the closing ceremonies. This was my seventh Olympics and I simply love doing them. […]

Digital Indie Publishing

Some of you might have noticed the thing we did in DocImages couple of days ago. Well, if you didn’t, here’s a short recap. (And here is an article I wrote in Finnish in our blog) I am getting sick and tired of the ever tightening legacy print death spiral and especially frustrated with their […]

Playing with Snapseed

Playing with Snapseed

I’ve never used Instagram. I know I should have… but just never got to do it. The closest I’ve ever got is a program called Snapseed, which produces (I think) quite similar results. I started using it in the summer when kayaking and sailing when I did not always have a laptop with me. Besides, […]

Motion Graphics

“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. […]

Multimedia Production: DocImages

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 […]

Paradigm Shift

Paradigm Shift

This is not an eulogy. This is not so much about Apple or the man – Steve Jobs – either. This is about the paradigm shift he introduced which people don’t seem to get. And this is about our future. But: I cannot write this without paying homage to somebody I have always respected immensely. […]

Too Many Interfaces…?

Too Many Interfaces…?

That actually was my desktop this morning. My shoulder is killing me  – had an operation about 2 weeks ago, presently I can be referred to as the  “Titanium Edition”  due to the spare parts screwed to my shoulder – and the fact that my hand moves BUT DOES NOT MOVE ENOUGH is driving me […]

Canon WFT and Eye-Fi – together with iPhone and iPad

I’ve had couple of emails asking for more information on my previous post, so here we go. Been testing different scenarios, different network and workflow configurations… and I have to say, I really like this. When I compared it to a toilet in train in my previous post, somebody asked did I have to look […]
