After a lenghty pondering process I started a photography blog because photography has become such an important part of my everyday life. I am especially intrigued by wildlife, street and night photography. So writing the food blog Äijäruokaa was simply not enough anymore.
I've always been fascinated by images 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 will write about gear, linux photography software and, of course, I will post photographs.
