Twilight Exposure

From Twilight Exposure

The Hands of Daibutsu, Kamakura, Japan 2007

I've always been fascinated by images and loved turning life into them whether my tool has been water colours, oil or a camera. Drawing and painting is a skill long lost due to neglect but in my twenties I got interested in photography and bought an Olympus OM-2N. However, shooting film was way too expensive a hobby for a student.

I bought my first DSLR, a Nikon D50, in 2005 and I currently shoot with the much better D90. The digital age has made photography affordable. My favourite photography genres are street, food and night photography. As a long time Linux user and programmer I'm also interested in the software used in photography and a self-written pile of Python is an important part of my workflow.

I pondered for a long time whether I should start a photography blog or post an occasional photography text to Äijäruokaa, the food blog. I concluded that I want to write about photography so often that food blog readears are probably not interested and that I want to write in English.

I will write about gear, linux photography software and, of course, I will post photographs.
