The past couple of weeks I have had the pleasure of teaching in the Aalto University a course titled Multi­media Story­telling. I think it is the fifth or so time I do it and everytime it has been different. This time it was spread over several weeks whereas last time it was a one week intensive. This time I gave quite …

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 …

Multimedia Workshop

Multimedia Workshop

I just finished an intensive of multi­media story­telling in Aalto last week. Doing it inten­sively (i.e. 6–8 hours close contact, every day) really wears you out. Trying to stay “fresh” yourself, i.e. not fall into routines, and all the time trying to find out what it is this time you really think students would appreciate and benefit …

Multimedia Production: DocImages

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 leave it to that. Everything …

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. I choose to …

Things which Make me Happy…

Things which Make me Happy…

The repulsive dog-vomit published by HS last week really bothered me (ref. to my previous post), then some personal hate-mail, the death of a someone dear to me… Put it this way: I’ve had better weeks than the previous one. I really have. So I thought: I want to share and write something positive. Show that life is not only gloomy …

Some Simple iPad Stuff for Photographers

Some Simple iPad Stuff for Photographers

The iPad is now totally integrated into my daily workflow. I’ve talked about ShutterS­nitch in my two previous posts — it totally rocks — and I’ve been promising to write about the future of the print on these devices one of these days… And I will, but before that, a quick post on two workflow solutions I thought …

You cannot Define the Truth Instrumentally

You cannot Define the Truth Instrumentally

About two weeks ago I was surfing the net and I stumbled on this image on a Helsinki Times page. “Nice HDR-work” was my initial reaction (took me c. two seconds) and then, WTF? Byline with photo­grapher and STT/Lehtikuva/Reuters… What was this? I got interested, googled this particular photo­grapher just to see if this was his style in general. …

Multimedia: the Rule of 40–30-20–10

Multimedia: the Rule of 40–30-20–10

The best benefit of teaching IMHO is the fact that you learn yourself so much. And when trying to pass this infor­mation further, one naturally tries to formulate one’s thoughts as clearly as one can. Doing linear story­telling thru images — and trying to teach it — I have come up with a half a dozen rules — or call …
