Graphic designer and photographer from Finland Mikko Lagerstedt has a rare ability, he knows how to create a mood. Whether he’s accentuating the density of fog or shooting a shadowy figure far away in the distance, all of his photos carry with them a dramatic feeling. It’s like you’re witnessing a spliced scene from an edge-of-your-seat suspense thriller, that crescendo moment before you let out a bone-chilling scream.
“I love it when the photo makes you feel something,” Lagerstedt tells us about his shots. “Of course, there are times I just want to capture the beauty of nature…It’s the whole picture that counts. Sometimes the image needs little processing to make it perfect.”
