My usual modus operandi to photography goes this way: think ahead, sketch, write down, plan it out, gather, lay out…and then click.
While travelling, my creative process is completely different. The click comes much faster with no pre-production. The fast trigger gives me a sense of relief, even freedom, from a more structured and planned creation process. When the places visited are look like wonderland, the set dressing has been already done ages ago.
In October/ November I had the luck & the pleasure to visit Finland, Estonia and Russia. To release the anxiety that comes from vacation time, I carried my camera around and clicked on.
There’s something refreshing and empowering in creating in this more carefree way.
All ramblings aside, here’s a little piece of Helsinki as I saw and lived it. I’ll be doing this in parts because I have loads of pictures.
Enjoy the trip!
