Great stuff as always Taran!









Season of Summer Light
Week 28, Wednesday - Strawberries
"Beginning of this season I told you about the Finns obsession for the ice-cream in summer. Ice-cream isn't the only thing we connect with summer - another one is strawberries which are bought from the market square, eaten and also stuffed in freezers for the winter. Strawberries are essential for summer and no self-respectful Finn will go about without getting some of them. I should also add that they are very healthy with a nice amount of C-vitamin in them. Like others we also plan to buy them and we've been speaking about 5 kg (most of them will go to freezer and we'll be eating them along winter). But the thing is our freezer is currently too full which means I need to shape up and start eating all the stuff we've put into it. Hah, feels like work when you actually have to do it.. [...]"

FE55 with NEX7
This body really show me how crazy the FE55 capable of. The zoom in detail simply looks magic to my eye.
The light is harsh and boring at noon in Oregon, hence BW

Zhangyue-
Nice landscapes. I am guessing these are from Crater Lake?
It may just be my monitor, but I do notice a bit of patchiness in the sky gradients.

Here are a couple from around Haeundae. Sigma 30 and Nikon 200/4 ais.

Season of Summer Light
Week 28, Saturday - Splash!!
"Lately I've been fascinated by the idea that I could get that summer light very literally in my pictures by shooting in back light scenarios and let the light bounce inside the lens causing haze and sun flares in final pictures. If one goes by the textbook it's 'against the rules', but in my book the imperfections and happy accidents created by this technique adds something very special to pictures - an element of being there, one might say.

Taran-
Thanks for the encouragement. I appreciate the compliment all the more coming from someone whose work I admire! I do plan to do a printed album when I feel like I've got enough material.

Thanks for the kind words, Taran! As I'm sure you already know, these pictures are part of my one year expedition 'Year of the Alpha - 52 Weeks of Sony Alpha Photography'. I still have half a year left, but when I'm done, I'm sure I will print myself a book about my adventure. So far, my project has been great, but also quite exhausting once in a while..

Loving your stuff as well.. :-)

Season of Summer Light
Week 29, Wednesday - Head in the clouds
"If creativity is thinking 'outside-of-the-box', it needs the limits that define the box in the first place. For me enclosed playgrounds with limited amount equipment and Aura's interest for them define the box in which I have to act to make pictures of her playing. During the two years I've been taking so many pictures in playgrounds that the normal ones, like Aura filling bucket with the sand shovel, doesn't cut anymore. After hundreds of pictures playgrounds have become so familiar that it becomes pretty challenging to photograph something that hasn't been taken before. But truth to be told, I find this a very absorbing challenge, because I can sit down in peace, watch her play and think about new ways to approach the all so familiar situation. [...]"

Week 27, Wednesday - Rainy days
"It's been cold and rainy weather for couple of days and not like typical summer weather. In Finland this means temperatures from 10 to 15 Celsius (50-60 on a Fahrenheit scale) and couple of millimeters of water on an average rainy day. It's too cold and wet to go outside, so we need to stay in and find something else to do. So because of weather we went to local market square and got some peas to Aura. [...]"

Picked up an $75 NEX3 body to use it with my Rokkor 58 1.2, I am really impressed with this little thing

All are at high ISO (1600) and f/2

Couple weeks ago was in Provence with NEX-5N+CV15 and Canon 6D+zooms and GF (girlfriend, not a Lumix )!

Here is the standard lavender shot at Abbaye de Senanque:



Full set with the little Sony, here.

Thanks for looking!

Season of Summer Light
Week 29, Saturday - The Marketplace
"As I promised couple of days ago (see here), today I'll take you to the Finnish marketplace. The reason for this expedition is simple, you really haven't seen Finnish summer if you haven't visited the marketplace. To understand the importance of this subject, you first need to know something about the Finnish society. Today Finland is a typical information society, with all the technological schemes like broadband connections, databases, social media, mobile phones, tablets etc. But it has not always been like that.
