For as long as I can remember I’ve had the passion to create. As a young child I used to draw a lot and when I got into my teenage years music entered the picture. When I was around 14-15 I started to get into web design and photography when I got my first digital camera, the Canon Powershot A40. Nowadays I enjoy creating things in the forms of still images, moving images, and music.

When it comes to photography I love to experiment with different styles and techniques, but I’m mostly into black and white photography and infrared photography.

My photography gear:
• Sony a77 SLT body
Sony a230 DSLR body
• Sony DT 50mm f/1.8 SAM lens
Sony DT18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 SAM lens
Tamron AF18-200mm f/3.5-6.3 XR Di-II LD IF lens
• various filters
Nokia 808 Pureview
• Benro A150FBR0 tripod

I decided to create this blog, because I wanted to have a place where I can show my creations to anyone interested.

For your convenience you can browse the photographs by style, by theme, or by location. I will be adding more locations when I get the chance to explore new countries. For new locations you may have to wait a while, because of the obligations of the real world are seriously hampering with my traveling.  I would love to visit Malaysian Borneo next. Stay tuned.

If you wish to use a photograph of mine for commercial or non-commercial use, email me at juha.lappalainen@gmail.com. I have high-resolution versions of all of the photographs if needed.

My photograph “Darkness and Light” won the photo contest at PhotoLord on March 26, 2012.

    WOW great pics man. I really like the ancient meets modern infrared pic. Made me start looking into infrared filters. I appreciate that you put down on some of your pics the aperture, shutter speed filter etc. Maybe you could list the info on all you pics 😉 I’m just starting off in photography so if you like, you can drop by my page and lmk what you think of my pics. My site is http://www.roycesworld.com. It’s travel blog about my trips and to help people with travel tips I learned along the way. Hopefully I will be able to take amazing pictures like you and post it with my travels. Keep the good work I’ll be subscribing hope to see more awesome pics soon =).

    • Thanks man! I’m glad you liked my stuff! Okay, I’ll start listing the settings on the pictures. 🙂

      If that kind of photography interests you I totally recommend to get the infrared filter. I find that it works great especially with B&W photography. But one thing you should take into consideration is that some cameras block infrared light more than others. With my Sony a230 the exposure times are atleast a few seconds even in Thailand’s bright sunlight. I don’t mind because I use a tripod and long shutter speeds usually work well style-wise on the photographs.

      I’ll try to find some time to go check out your stuff.

      Thanks for the comment!
