Introduction

Photography has been a long time hobby for me as I have started on film with a Zenit TTL camera, but with the progress of digital photography I jumped ship late 2007. For me it’s a way to see the world a bit differently and freeze different aspects of life in time. Photographs shared here are a small selection of my work that I think might be worthy of an audience.

Software

Although I do my best to avoid editing my pictures sometimes I still have to correct a few minor issues, especially if I have no means of redoing the photo. On the other hand there are some images, like HDR or panorama shots, where one cannot go without the help of software these days.

  • GIMP to edit images in various ways.
  • Darktable to develop my raw images.
  • hugin to create panoramas and high resolution shots by stitching images together.
  • ImageMagick the command line image manipulator package to batch process images.
  • Gwenview to browse my collection.
