The Beauty of Finnish Landscapes by Mikko Lagerstedt

Written by Flynn Matthews

Spending a whole evening under the stars in darkness, photographer Mikko Lagerstedt captures magnificent landscapes of tundra and misty mornings of Iceland and his native Finland. With a camera mounted on a tripod, he takes a number of exposures as the light gradually changes. Individual elements are then joined digitally and enhanced with Photoshop and Lightroom—a process he frankly shares in tutorials and presets he sells on his website. The resulting photographs are a result of hours of photography, editing, and a keen sense of color and composition to produce massively modified images that are almost hyper-realistic.
