PHOTOSHOOT


PHOTOGRAPHER: SARA LEHTOMAA
MODEL: JENNI KLEEMOLA


The forests of Hirvensalo make the perfect setting for a photo shoot. And with my beautiful model, Jenni, I had all the elements that are required to take the perfect photo. And I did indeed manage to get several photos that I'm more than satisfied with. I can't even explain the excitement and joy I usually experience when taking photos. And I'm starting to get more and more convinced about my future as a photographer. Please, let me know what you think about these photos! I always appreciate your comments, whether it's praise or instructive critique!

The last photo actually has a pretty funny story behind it. Don't you agree that Jenni looks like she'd just seen a ghost? Well, we were almost done with shooting when we suddenly heard this terrible sound. We came to the conclusion that it was an animal getting killed by a fox or maybe two raccoon dogs fighting (but we don't know for sure since we didn't actually see something). I swear I have never in my life heard such a horrid sound. And I think I captured the atmosphere on photo pretty well, haha. Anyways, after hearing that we agreed that we were done shooting and headed home as fast as we could.
