Prophesy to the Wind

Prophesy to the Wind

It is a humbling experience to have suddenly thousands and thousands of readers daily taking a peek at your thoughts. Happened to me last week, when WP posted my “Deathwatch” on their front page. I mean, I’m used to having people viewing my images, but not my words so much. They had about a million postings to choose from …

Livefeed from Barcelona: On the Air

Livefeed from Barcelona: On the Air

Last night I came to the hotel and opened a good bottle of wine. Felt like I’d earned it; exhausted but flying: everything just came together in the end. I was so happy. Fast trans­mission, no hickups really, workflow getting better and better, faster and faster. For instance; before I shot the image above (the winner of 100m dash …

Livefeed from Barcelona

Livefeed from Barcelona

This is something I have been working on for a quite a long time and now it’s time to put it into a real field test. Not that the actual technique is so complicated, but it’s been interesting trying to build the workflow so that it is rock solid and easy to use in a hurry and under pressure. What …

Going Totally Wireless with Canon 1D Mk4

I had planned to continue my post on the “suicide of the print”, but due to some change of circums­tances I save that for a later day. I just have to add that thank God I made my presen­tation that day and not later: the photo­graphers I was addressing just swept the table in our POY two days later. Seven …

Enjoying Figure Skating

Sometimes you just enjoy it- and I did tonight, big time. I got a very short notice to go and shoot a skating gala — with live music — organized by Plan to raise funds for the education of girls in less developped countries. Earlier today I had written a very critical piece on the state of our print media and …

Vancouver Olympics 2010: Media and the Web

Vancouver Olympics 2010: Media and the Web

I had thought of writing a funny piece about all the things one should NOT do in the olympics, but I decided to let it pass. Somehow it is drifting into the past already. I promise to do it some later date, in some other context. Instead I thought I take a quick look at our (Finnish) media and the coverage of …

Vancouver Olympics, day 17: Toys and Tips

Vancouver Olympics, day 17: Toys and Tips

Day 17. I guess officially it is day 13, but I have been here seventeen days — and five more to go. Time to look at some of the images and answer some questions I have had on equipment — mainly on Canon EOS 1Dmk4. But let’s start with the images: took a nice series of Lindsey Vonn crashing. My …

Vancouver Olympics, day 15: Creating Fast Workflows

Vancouver Olympics, day 15: Creating Fast Workflows

Time is of the essence, when working in a timezone which is ten hours behind your own. In practise this means that if I want to make tomorrows paper, all my images have to be in by 14.oo at the latest local time. When compe­ti­tions end about that time over here, you are in a hurry — in a big …
