European Championships of Figure Skating 2011

European Championships of Figure Skating 2011

I just got to Bern, Switzerland to cover the European Championships of Figure Skating 2011. This is the third year I do this in a row and I am very excited about it. It’s nice to get to slowly know the atheletes and their styles — as well as trying to perfect your own approach in shooting this. What …

Zoom H4n and H1

Zoom H4n and H1

No, this is not a test. Just a quick note on couple of small obser­va­tions which might be of interest to some. Been playing now with Zoom H1 for a while and it has immediately become de facto recorder for my work. For obvious reasons: extremely light weight and extremely simple to use. Amazing sound quality with the built …

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.

My two principal clients Iltalehti and Aamulehti jumped on the oppor­tunity of using the Livefeed from here and it has so far generated an audience of several thousand people. Commenting has been really scarce — but then again that’s Finland, it’s just not part of the culture to comment (unless …

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 …

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 …
