Landscape photography course in Helsinki on 4.-6.5.2012

Mustavuori, Helsinki

Mustavuori, Helsinki (29.4.2011)

I’ll teaching landscape photography in Kameraseura after two weeks. There are still several places available in the course. You can buy the course from the Kameraseura web shop. The teaching language of the course is English and the material will be in English. The material is also available in Finnish by request (contact me in advance). Course is suitable for beginners and advanced photographers. Here you can find a short summary from my spring 2011 photography course.

The main emphasis of the course will be on the art of landscape photography (choosing location, right time, composition, use of light, camera settings, what lens and filters to use,…). But I will also go through the landscape photographer’s equipment (camera, lenses, Tilt/Shift lenses, tripod, panorama accessories,…). I will shortly describe my work flow and how I process my photos with Lightroom and Photoshop. All participants will also get feedback based on the their images capture before and during the course.

The course timetable differs from the earlier Finnish courses as the Sunday part is only in the evening. But as we do not have one hour lunch break on Sunday and Friday evening is little bit longer, this course is only half an hour shorter than the Finnish courses. And you have more time to select and edit your photos from Saturday to the Sundays discussion.

Link to Spring Ice Gallery II / Pack ice in Lauttasaari, Helsinki

The last two weeks have been rather photogenic here in Helsinki. The sea ice has melted and there has been lots of interesting subjects to photograph: icicles, packed ice and drift ice 🙂

Suomenlinna, Helsinki

In this gallery you can see the photos that I have taken on six occasions during last two weeks: I made three trips to Suomenlinna and three trips to the southern tip of Lauttasaari. One Suomenlinna trip was part of my landscape photography course in Kameraseura. I will write more about my course in few days.

Landscape photography course in March

Lauttasaari spring sunset on 26.03.2009

Kameraseura will arrange landscape photography course next March (25.-27.3). I can recommend this course, as I will be the teacher 🙂 The course language will be Finnish, but you can participate to the course even if you do not speak perfect Finnish (if you request, you can have part of the material in English, and also the questions can be asked in English).

The course will be weekend course: on Friday evening we will go through the theory of landscape photography and look landscape images from the course participants, on (late) Saturday afternoon we will have field trip to some photogenic location, on Sunday afternoon we will review Saturday’s images and continue the theory.

I will go through the landscape photographer’s equipment (camera, lenses, tripod,..), but the main emphasis of the course will be on the art of landscape photography (choosing the location, choosing the right time, composition, use of light, camera settings, what filters to use,…).

Ice details in Lauttasaari on 26.03.2009

The destination of Saturday’s photography trip will be decided on Friday based on the weather forecast and the snow/ice situation. Possible destinations are e.g. Suomenlinna, southern tip of Lauttasaari, or Vantaanjoki/Ruutinkoski (near Haltiala). Sunset on that day is around 18:45, so if the weather is sunny, we will photograph sunset. Digital camera and tripod are needed (I will have two tripods for loan). And if the weather is cold, also lot’s of warm clothes are needed, as we will be few hours outside 🙂

You can book the course in Kameraseura website. This course (and other Kameraseura spring courses) will become available on 10.1.2011 at 10:00. The price of this course is 100€ (85€ for Kameraseura members).
