Artist | Hobbyist | Photography

My name is Toni, but you can call me Tony or T.

I'm self-learned hobbyist photographer from eastern Finland.
I don't have any specific style, but I like to photograph nature sceneries.
You can see all kinds of photographs in this page, mainly sceneries and places from my hometown Imatra, but also from other parts of Finland.

I used to do digital picture manipulations too, but I don't have an interest in them anymore. You can view my old digital pictures in this page.
I practice to draw and paint.
I play drums and guitar.
And I collect music, my focus is mostly on underground vinyls and cassettes, but I buy other kinds of releases too.
My collection is on the following link, it contains my recent additions, haven't included everything that I own yet.…

While arts are my hobbies, I'm studying surface processing.
I.e. I paint and reconstruct interiors and exteriors of buildings.
After I finished comprehensive school, I tried to get to media school couple of years with no luck. I wanted to be a cameraman for tv and/or film productions.
Apparently it's very popular field of occupation in Finland with many applicants, but it has very low employment situation.
House painter was my second interest and it started to sound better option.
However, I have been a trainee on video company. I have filmed and edited commercial projects. I also had there courses in both video and photography.

As a person, other people would describe me as quiet and shy, helpful and friendly.
Feel free to take contact here. I'm very easy going and I don't mind a little chat.

I speak Finnish, English and Swedish.
I have an interest in Russian language and I'm currently studying it by myself.

Respect the artist, do not copy, re-produce or re-submit my photos without my permission.
Simple note or comment with a mention of what photo and where you are going to use it, is fine.
I use reverse pic search tools to check my photos occasionally to find unauthorized use.


Autumn Colours by Toni-R
Autumn Colours
Finland - September 15, 2012.

During the autumn of 2012, the waterlevel was a lot higher than usual, so the city decided to keep the dam open for couple of months with occasional closing. Usually the dam is opened during summer for about 30 minutes everyday. The opening of the dam is popular tourist attraction so most of the time it is really difficult to photograph on the area, but now as the dam has been open for couple of weeks with ongoing flow, it didn't attract many people anymore, so I had a perfect opportunity to photograph the area from all the possible angles.

I took 3 exposures for making a HDR image, but the clouds were moving pretty fast but still too slow between the exposures for making solid trace on the clouds and the ghosting is very difficult to remove, so I scrapped the HDR idea.
Luckily I was able to manipulate a single exposure enough to make an even contrasts.
