Joy of working in the forest by Jari Mantyla

. Tell us a little about yourself and if you have any other hobby out of photography?

I’m an amateur photographer from northern Finland. I work in the mining industry and I have always been interested in photographic art etc. I have few hobbies other than photography. Namely just astronomy and movies.

. How did you get your start in photography? What lead you to it?

I was working as a trainee in mining and one older worker told me about his camera equipment and I got interested too. I got my first SLR and shot a lot on slide film. Later I upgraded into dSLR stuff.

. We noticed that you have multiple types of photography, so what do you prefer the most??

I prefer HDR with graphic look. I’m also interested in macro photography but so far I have had no good experiences with it. I would like to shoot studio portraits and such but they are still a dream.

. What do you think the most challenging thing about photography generally?

The most difficult thing is ‘seeing’ the ready image. Sometimes I see it well in advance but often the vision is a bit unclear. Usually the best results come from the unclear visions. The image develops itself during post processing.

Peace and Quiet by Jari Mantyla

. If you had to choose one lens, which one would it be and why?

From my own repertoire it would probably be the Nikkor AF-S 50/1.4 since I love the shallow DOF which it develops and the sensitivity to light.

Box full of memories by Jari Mantyla

. What advice do you have for amateurs wanting to become professional?

Shoot a lot. Develop your inner eye. Learn to see the final result before shooting. Look at what you have in the frame; is it all necessary. The less in the frame, the more powerful the image.

We thank you so much Mr Jari after this wonderful meeting, we really enjoyed this interview with you proving hard and diligent work to achieve success. and hope you realize your dream in professional portraits field and become one of the photographers of eminent persons in the community, who knows, there is nothing away with the insistence.
