Introduction
If you only wish to follow my photo stream, check the +Tiina M Niskanen Photography page. 

Ready made photo products like cards, prints, canvases, phonecases and phoneskins - see my Society6 , Redbubble , Fine Art America and Crated. profiles. Originator, curator and Community Manager of the +Weekly Photo Project 2013 , +Summer Photos  and +Metropolia Career Services (launched 21.12.2012, 6.6.2012 and 8.11.2011 respectively).  

Interested in: 
- social media as means and phenomen 
- empowerment, citizen activism, local democracy 
- open educational resources (OER), open courseware (OCW), open data, open government, open licencing (use "CC BY" for own photos) 
- sustainable development, slow life, downshifting, work-life balance 
- different art forms (currently especially photography) 

After purchasing my first smartphone summer 2011 (second hand Nexus One) I've taken an increasing amount of visual memories - mostly in passing and in a hurry without a tripod. In February 2013 a friend of mine lent me a Pentax K100, which I try to practice with. In January 2014 I changed my mobile for a Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini, in August 2014 I bought a 2nd hand NEX-6. 

There seems to be more than just the weight of the gear and technical issues at hand that hinder me: adopting the identity of a "real" shooter instead of a "mere" androidographer. 

From January 2013 I've revived again my interest in music and started to build playlists in YouTube.

Bragging rights
As a non-public figure got over 1 000 new followers in less than a fortnight (23.12.2011 - 3.1.2012) in Google+ - due to snapshots posted with Daily Photography Themes hashtags, I thought at the time. After I got over 11 000 new followers during 12.4.-30.5.2013 without any change in my G+ behaviour, I wondered if that was the case after all. If the raise is just due to changes in the algorithm for the suggested users list (SUL), there's really nothing to brag about :)
