I was working on a evening shift at work and didn’t get to Kauppatori until little after 21:00, which was quite good for weather wise, since it did rain a bit before 21:00. Although light was getting low and I am still not “one with the new camera”. I know that I can crank up the ISO way higher than with my D90. I guess it’s the allergy for high ISO. ;)
Here is the link to the pictures.
I got my El Camino out of the garage and yearly inspection passed with some minor fixs. Coincidence, that it was also first Friday of the month, which means Monthly Helsinki Cruising? Although it was not exactly warm, but nor it wasn’t “that” cold and there were quite many cars attending.
My day job was great enough to sponsor me a new camera and I just shoot with the same settings as my old camera and it didn’t occur to me that my new camera would be so much better. Shoot, learn, repeat.
Stadin Cruising going strong!
This time of the Year it is getting too fast too dark and that means two things. First thing is that you have to shoot as “quick” as you can with the available light and second thing is that bring your tripod with you. Second thing also a blessing since you can try out to get a most of the dark situation by playing with long exposures.
There is a good chance to catch something that your eye can’t see. So your mind have to be in a creative mode to try out something and mostly you’re going to miss, but every now and then you get something that is worth the trouble.

Stadin Cruising is alive!
Last Friday was again a month’s first Friday and that meant Stadin Cruising. Last time I spotted great spot at Kaivopuisto and we went straight there to wait for car queue passing by, but there weren’t that big line coming at once, which was actually great I had time to plan my shot and take a zip of beer between cars. I guess holiday season and few other happenings were limiting participiants to this event. Nevertheless Kauppatori was yet again full again and we didn’t even bothered to go there, mainly because there were huge waiting to get in the market area and driving through would have burst my bladder, thanks to all those cold refreshments that I enjoy’d at Kaivopuisto.
I don’t know can I post pictures from up coming Friday at Espoo Cruising since I have to leave early in the Saturday morning to Alastaro to shoot at Ford Nationals for a day. So I have 160 km drive in the morning…
Here a pictures from the Cruising.
Stadin Cruising is alive!
Yesterday was again first Friday of the month and that meant Stadin Cruising. Last month we didn’t make it since I had bad migraine and it was also a first time for a long time that you could call it Cruising. Lot’s of people has put an effort to start again Cruising being a Cruising and they cruise along streets of Helsinki and stopped where they wanted and had a chat or watched others goes by.
We went in south part of Helsinki and wait for cruise come by and I took pictures and pictures. Sadly sun was setting in and there were too many clouds to provide enough light and my trusty D90 had a problem with following my “order”… Here a some of the pictures from yesterday.
