Today when I got home from the workshop, the kids were painting. I decided to pull out the camera and get some shots. The kids are pretty productive…20 papers per day: cut papers, drawn papers, painted papers… 🙂 I guess they try to keep the forest industry alive.
Rest of the shots are at: http://kansala.kuvat.fi/kuvat/Antti/2011-11-27%20Ode%20maalaa/

The lighting for these shots was created with two speedlights. One with a diy grid and an orange gel for the background and the other with a small diy beauty dish. I used my 18-50/2.8 Sigma lens.
Things seem to get tougher year by year…yesterday we had a shot at this years Christmas card photo. The above is the one from last year. In addition to getting Oona and Ode in the photo (at the same time), wearing the hats, looking at the camera, trying to smile…this year we had Iisa also. It was a hectic trial and error one hour, but the end result was pretty close to what we had in mind. You have to wait until Christmas to get your card or see the photo from my blog after Christmas, if you’re not on our Christmas card list 🙂
Today the temperature finally dropped below zero. It was a clear night so there was beautiful morning frost. While taking the kids to play outside, I took my camera along to capture some macros of the morning frost. Rest of the set is at: http://kansala.kuvat.fi/kuvat/Antti/2011-11-20%20Frosty%20macros/
For tech geeks:
These macros are all shot with Nikkor 85/1.8 lens with a 36mm extension tube.
We had our traditional neighborhood Halloween party yesterday. This time it was time for adults to get dressed in costumes as well as the kids! I decided to set up a photo corner to get the costumes documented. Actually it turned out to be a hell of a lot of fun! Please check out the rest of the pictures at: http://kansala.kuvat.fi/kuvat/Antti/2011-11-05+Halloween/ .
For tech geeks:
I used two SB28’s as rim lights and one SB80 through an umbrella as key light. The black backdrop is hanging from our bookshelf. The space was very limited, so that kind of shows in some photos. The ISO400 was a mistake from shooting at the party, where I used ISO400.
