This summer is an important time for us: moving from place to place, working with our page, learning new things, planning, travelling and taking many many pictures. In this post you can read about our most recent actions!

At the beginning you can find here some of our shots from this summer. We were visiting polish beautiful cities: Torun, Gdansk, Sopot, Gierloz and Malbork. Weather was challenging, since in July is the stormy season in Poland. During days was really hot and in the afternoons, we had storms. Ofc storm is a good chance to practice rain and clouds shots.
One day we saw amazing double rainbow! Pity, that at least mine skills aren’t still perfect, so picture is nothing in comparison to reality. Next time will be better:)

We got 2 photography books (in polish): ‘Fotografia kulinarna od zdjecia do arcydziela’ (Food photography from snapshots to great shots) Nicole S. Young. You can find more information about the author at her blog page. Definitely worthy to visit!
Book is written with nice easy way. I found there many interesting tips and ideas. For sure good position in own library.
And the second book written by polish author: ‘Profesjonalna fotografia slubna Od perfekcyjnego warsztatu do dochodowego biznesu’ by Grzegorz “Moment” Placzek. I cannot tell more things about it, because I am still reading it:)

Also next week new workshop in Cerezales del Condado is starting. We are looking forward to it!

We are starting also to learn and improve our of retouch. Krzysiekk did some samples. You can find them here.

Uff… that’s a lot of updates and the summer is just in the middle:)

See you soon!



Place is very nice and located in beautiful landscape, what is making wildlife observation even more fascinating.
We were really lucky and we saw 6 wolverines! Not so many birds as expected, but our main goal were wolverines. After whole sleepless night in one of three hideouts (hot and full of mosquitos), it is a good feeling to have some pictures of this interesting animals.
You can see them here.
Most of them were taken with Nikkor 70-200 f2,8 borrowed by friends. Setting the tripod was a bit challenging, but even for this you can find the solution. During summer time, the darkness is not a problem, since days are really long. Nonetheless higher ISO possibilities might be useful.

About Erä-eero:
There are 3 professional hideouts (one with higher standard). It is possible to visit them during winter during the days and in the summer for the nights. Erä-eero is described as one of bests, if not the best, places for observing wolverines. If you are looking natural habitats, where you want to see them, Erä-eero is perfect. Link for their page you can find in previous post.

Wildlife hunting

As a member of Joensuu Multicultural Photography Club, Fotoaurinko will participate in wildlife photography excursion.
Unfortunately our only lens suitable for this, left at home in Spain. Thanks to friends, we got good equipment!
Camera ready, small snacks ready, “no smell to not scare animals” ready!
Let’s see if wolverine, wolf or bear will be nice creatures and will reward whole night staying in the secret “watch-place”
May the luck be with us!


Lapland resume

It was really nice trip. And quite cheap;)

Weather not bad, hotel quite ok and the views amazing.

We saw reindeer, husky, real Santa and the Arctic Circle. On the way back, we decided to change the plans a bit, so we were able to visit 2 National Parks: Koli and Patvinsuo. And ofc we took thousands of pictures. You can see them here in our brand new Flickr gallery. Enjoy!
