Yesterday Jim Ashilevi presented his new book “Kehade mets” in a bookstore in Tallinn. I was quite excited about the book and so was Eva so we decided to go. The presentation itself was really fun. Jim had a dialogue with his friend and fellow writer Sass Henno and took questions from the audience. The atmosphere was nice and relaxed and the discussion was a lot of fun while exploring many of the topics from the book to a more detail.
Unfortunately I have not had time to go through the whole book as of yet but I am very much enjoying it. It is one of these books that I can very comfortably recommend to pretty much anyone. I may go into a bit more detail when I finish the book but for now, just go and read it. Anyway… the point I am trying to make is – I took some pictures and want to share them with you.
Continuing the line of photos made in the beautiful mid-autumn light, I was invited to take family photos for my friends Maret and Aare. This was very interesting as I had never done anything like this before. Usually I have had to take photos of one person at a time and on a few occasions – a band. A family is quite a bit different though and it was amazing to have the opportunity to practice this with my friends. In the end, I think the pictures turned out well and reflected the emotions that were there during the photo shoot. Sweet pictures with a sweet family.
It has been such a nice autumn this year. The light has been warm and mellow and there have been many sunny days. This has been great because I really like this kind of light, especially for photography. Because of this I have been looking for people to take pictures of.
Last weekend I got together with my friend Heidi in Tallinn and had a very nice photo session. We stayed close to the Old Town and did most pictures in the parks surrounding Toompea. I think she was happy with the pictures and I was as well. The morning was really nice and the pictures perfectly capture the vibrant colours and warm yellows.
