FDT #311 (Market Square)

FDT #311 (Market Square)

There was a handy light setup here so I used it for a face-down shot. In the summer I woulnd't be able to do a facedown on this spot, especially if the weather was nice. It would be way too crowded. I made several tries at this and I always seemed to end up on a suboptimal spot. This one was perfect (to me anyways), but I stood up too soon in the middle of the last of bracketed the three exposures. (Yes... This is a three exposure HDR composite.) I kind of like the ghost effect though. You can see where I placed my hands when getting up.

It's a face down Tuesday. This is all I've got today. (10s sprint to lie on the table. I fell off twice) I can't believe this made Explore - what is it about FDT shots. Does my bum look big in this (again)?

This area was swept by fire last year, I was covered in black soot after shooting. Happy Face Down Tuesday!

FDT #310 (snow update)

Just a quick update on the snow situation here: There is plenty of it! Currently the info from the local weather station is that there is 46 cm of snow. There has been more but I think that was years ago.

FDT #309 (over the path)

FDT #309 (over the path)

I go by this spot almost every time I come back from work, but I think I haven't done an FDT shot on there before. I've done a lot of them within radius of about a one kilometer though. I decided to go over the top with the processing to make it look a bit like it was from another world or something. Mainly that's some tone mapping (a.k.a. HDR, this is a three exposure composite) and pushing the saturation way over anything natural. The odd colours come from the different colour temperatures/balances of the different light sources exagerated by that extra saturation. The weather was nice. There was practically no wind. Temperature was about -12°C. (It was colder in the morning when I was cycling to work... -19°C or so, but even that was not that bad because there was almost no wind.)

After complaining several times about having to do the post processing on various crappy laptops I ended up doing it for this on a cellphone. :D Picture was taken with my DSLR though and I was planning on trying to convert raw-files on the phone... However I was also planning on making the camera save jpg in addition to the raw-files, but I forgot. So... I just had to find a way to do the conversion on android. I made a colour version first but the mixed light conditions made the colour balance horrible almost whatever I did to it. After I got something remotely usable I had boosted the blue especially on the shadows so much that the blue noise was a bit too visible. I haven't found any noise reduction toolst in the processing app use and I had been thinking about maybe making it B&W so I tried that instead.

I have used this spot before in my FDT #153 but that was a few years ago and I liked the look of the spot today. I made to attempts on this and this is the first one. In the second one I had my arms differently to keep my hand inside the frame but overall this still looked better to me. The snow was somewhat wet again. Temperature was about +1°C.

FDT #307 (I'm dreaming of a...)

FDT #307 (I'm dreaming of a...)

Happy holidays and HFDT everyone! I'm not at home so I'm doing the processing on yet another old laptop... I tend to use old laptops that end up to my possession because other people have no use for them any more. This one is my mothers old one and I added some memory from one or two other machines to it. It isn't quite as fast as my desktop at home but has quite enough memory and computing power for processing a few pictures. However, the screen is again a bit odd even after calibrating it with my colorimeter. Darker tones are shown as just black and the overall white balance and contrast depends on the viewing angle... No single angle seems to be good. Oh well it didn't cost me anything. Maybe I'm slowly learning to do the processing without proper preview of the result. :D

FDT #306 (Evira)

FDT #306 (Evira)

The text on the building on the background actually says Evira, but the E and a bit over half of the V are on the side that is not visible from this direction... So it kind of looks like it says IRA on it. Now I'm not sure how the Irish would feel about that. Anyway, it's the office of the Finnish Food Safety Authority. Next year it will be combined with another goverment agency and a small part of yet another goverment agency (that I actually work in) to form a new agency that will be called Finnish Food Authority. A lot of people (me included) that will be in the new agency have worked previously in an older agency that was split (a few times) and combined to different agencies. At work we were asked to add a picture informing about the change to our email signatures. I refused to do that because practically everyone I ever send email to will be in the new agency anyway so they do know. It would just fill out our mailboxes more efficiently. I quess this facedown will inform more people about the change than my email signature could have... Anyway... Just boring work related things today. Maybe I try something more cheerful next week. :) Oh... We have snow now but temperature today was around +1°C so it was quite wet.

Again, I'm not quite sure about the processing, but for different reason... I had an eye examination today. It started with eye drops that make the pupil of the eye large... In other words maximum aperture. The effect hasn't still quite worn off from the left one. (It had two drops since it was the one that actually triggered the need for the examination.) The right one feels almost normal already. Together they feel a bit mismached, especially when looking at a computer screen. The doctor said everything should be ok though and the symptoms I have are pretty normal stuff for my age. As much as this spot looks like really bad neighbourhood, it is actually in one of the most "hip" areas in helsinki. (At least as far as I know... But then again, I'm officially old now. :D) Odd thing is it says "Bar is open" on the right and on the left "Wed-Thu 16-23" and "Fri-Sat 15-02". I did this today (Tuesday).
