Hai! My name is Eero Turunen, and I come from Central Finland. I've been studying art now for 3 years by my own means and I am currently working as an assistant art teacher in Schildtin lukio where I graduated last year (a "lukio" is comparable to an american high school). I picked up photography as a hobby during the 1st year in lukio. During the past 2 years I've gravitated towards portraiture and I have recently started traditional film photography after building a darkroom into our wine cellar. Here's couple pictures I am moderately proud of (and I think they show my style pretty well): Last year I was featured in Tumblr's "radar" which features a few artists a day, showing a selected picture on the front page. This gave a huge motivation boost for my hobby and I started to really think if I wanted to pursue a career in photography and arts. Now I'm working as a teacher so there's that. However during the past year or so I've developed a huge artist's block and I find it hard to pick up a camera and do some shooting. So I decided to join a forum to boost my confidence and maybe learn something new from the people here. <3: Eero P.S. My username means "the child of Tuoni". Tuoni is the king of the underworld in Finnish folklore. I had this story bouncing in my head about Tuoni being a father of a bastard child after knocking up a woman in the living world.
