Advent calendar

So as it's December in just two days and at least in Finland it's a tradition to have an Advent calendar while waiting for Christmas Eve, so I got this idea of making one for my photography blog too!

So what does that mean?
I'm going to post photos here daily, yes, daily and it will be a photo that I took during that day!
So it's going to be very diary-like calendar! :)

Hopefully I'll succeed to do it and hopefully you guys will enjoy it~

ps. This also means that there won't be coming any Wordless Wednesday posts before 26th of December!

Today I got to test printing at school..
I'm still little awkward everytime I have to show my stuff and works so it was a big deal for my to be the first one to print and to print something in that size, because you can see the mistakes (like noise if there is some) so much easier than in smaller photos!

But I finally know which photos I will be printing next week and how I should retouch them more!
So in a week I'll be showing you the final photos and prints! :)

Black dress & red lips

Well hello you all!
Finally I have something new to show you! Something that is school related but ain't boring! (Yes, I thought that the last task we had was a bit dull..)
So.. Our new assignment was to take photos of some products (clothing) and that the products had to have a story behind.. Our thing was to take 3-5 photos and those should be like advertising campaing or something like that.. So, what I came up to was a high-class lady on a train trip.. So what I want to sell with these photos was glamour and luxury etc :'D idk.. :')

But yeah.. I asked the lovely Valpuri to be my model again and she agreed.. Though she didn't know what she was up to ;) Poor thing was so cold at some points :(

But yeah,
the look was created by me, but Valpuri did her own hair and makeup! (ofc according to my hopes)!
Photography and retouch by yours truly~

Hopefully you'll enjoy these~

So those were taken this morning! What do you think? :)
I have to choose 5 for our lesson.. And to be honest I really don't know which 5 I want to edit and print out ;;__;;

So, any help, maybe? :)
Which photos are your favourites? :)

ps. You might have noticed that Choco was also modeling for me this time ;)

Some school stuff

I've been extremely busy lately, I have so many school deadlines, so I haven't even had time to go and have a photoshoot with anyone D: But my photography course has finally started and I get to use studio in January! I'm so going to use it.. A LOT. :)
But we had some basic tasks that we had to do a week ago, like use a long shutter speed etc, so as I've been quiet lately and all you have seen is my Wordless Wednesday photos I decided to show you 2 photos from that task :)
And here I'm also showing some of my mad (read: imaginary) photoshop skills, there's the unedited version and edited one.. I felt like showing you what I do to my photos after I get them to my computer, and normally I just play with curves and that kinda stuff, so there's not much difference.. Or is there?

I actually hated that we had to show unedited photos for our class :D I dunno, I always want to add at least some more contrast to my photos before showing them to anyone.. But I guess that's just me.. :D

ps. I just noticed that tomorrows Wordless Wednesday photo was already up! I swear I had timed it for tomorrow, but oh well.. Some have already seen it, but those who haven't, just wait for tomorrow morning! :)
