I went to France with Topi. I shot my beautiful friend Louise in Fontainebleau !
I was proud of the picture, but.. Something was missing. And I kind of started to feel like almost all of my pictures are "good" but yeah something's missing.
So thought a lot, and wondered what the hell it could be :D And then I finally found out.
THERE'S NO ACTION AT ALL!
I don't mean action like people running or screaming or shooting. I mean.. a story... something.
When I look at my pictures, yes, there's a kind of story but it's too small, I don't know how to explain.
But take a look at this picture of Louise. Yup, you can imagine something that could happen or imagine who she is, but THAT'S IT. All I can imagine as a story to her is something like she's a beautiful kinda princess chilling and when she's over with her chilling she will go to eat with her royal father.
Haha. Not interesting enough.
SO ! I remembered a project I had in mind for mooooonths.
Creating a WORLD, mine. Fantasy like and maybe even a little epic.
I started then to write a whole structure and story, create a map, everything.
And the project came to life.
So the idea is to take pictures of the moments of the story.
That's my first character. Topi is the perfect model for him.
I will not reveal what's happening on the pictures ... yet!
I want people to use their own imagination and imagine what's going on :D
The project is a success if:
-I take the best pictures of my life
-People can imagine amazing stories and not just blank
-I get better
Yeah, because this project is perfect for getting better, doing work with others (For these two pictures I had the help of the incredibly nice Jenni and Yordi! I'm so thankful!), organizing shootings, photoshopping, 3d, studio etc etc etc.
So that's my current awesome project.
Then school began again. You can't imagine how many plans I have in mind.
I'm doing that project, training with photoshop and studio. Doing so much and going to school and taking every possible opportunity.
I've also been planning my future and talking about it with my parents, boyfriend and teachers. I won't say a word about my plans but I swear I've never been so excited about my future.
I have so much to write but I can't think of anything else right now so I'll write another article later.
First I had a shooting with a beautiful model named Jenni.
I was looking for models and when I got her message I was so happy beause I found her so beautiful and she said she has a lot of indie clothes (and damn, I love everything indie!)
Then we planned the shooting and stuff, and she talked about horses. Oh yeah.
I've always wanted to shoot a model with horses.
So I took some fashion and natural pictures, portraits, and one conceptual photoshoped one like the way I love it.
Here are the pictures.
We probably will shoot again together and I can't wait at all!
Then I got an idea of project.
It's "Beautiful souls", I want to shoot red hair girls with a lot of freckles!
So I planned the first shooting with the beautiful Ronja.
For the project I want a unique headshot of every model.
With Ronja I wished I could take some other random photos because I really liked her as a model but she got sick and couldn't be as a model longer :( Fortunately, I got the shots I wanted for the project!!
Then then then I took a few selfportraits.
The thing is, this day I didn't look good at all so I didn't get the shots I was hoping for :( And I don't have a tripod anymore and it's horrible! I don't have any money to buy a new one :<
The project I'm starting with Olli Viljamaa.... started! But it's still in preparation. But but, I'm sure I will be able to tell everything about it in the next article and publish the first photos of it.
I have a cool idea in mind, and I'm going to shoot on sunday with them.
But I don't want to use them just for ONE shooting so I had another idea to continue the Two worlds become one project, and I tried yesterday but Topi got an electric shock during taking the test pictures :(
It scared the shit out of me so we stopped. But I found out a way to take the pictures without touching those stupid lights D:
I hope I'll be able to take the pictures tonight.
At least I got some natural cool pictures of Topi with them :D The test photos werent that bad.
Oh, and I'm also going to use the lights as a decoration for my room because they really are beautiful <3
So ! Today I was at Suomenlinna with my finnish photographer friends. It was a great day and I randomly decided to take a picture of my friend Jenny. Because the sea suddenly looked like the way I love it (I always photoshop my water picture with fog and stuff).
And I took this picture:
I'm proud of it because it looks like my picture !
Even though I think it's important as an artist to be open minded and try different stuff, I'm so damn happy to have recognizable style ! I don't want to think about it too much, I want to keep on shooting with my heart and feelings. But it looks like they always take me to this kind of magical picture.
THAT'S what I wanna do.
And I want to mix it with fashion because as I said in the previous article, I love fashion like the stars above, I'll love till I'll die (yeah yeah dire straits yeah)
Tomorrow I'm gonna start a project I've been thinking about since I took this picture here
Love is magic!
If you can love, you are pure.
Yep but the picture above is just a preview of what's coming. It will be big.
I hope they will look good as pictures, but if they don't, I don't care that much because it's all about the message.
