Hi, my name is Isko Salminen.
I'm an adventure seeker and I love exploring nature with my camera and Australian Shepherd called Fire

Bought a new lens yesterday, the amazing Olympus Zuiko ED 75mm f1.8.

I've never owned a lens with a similar focal length (150mm in 35mm terms) and was little worried that I would not know how to shoot with this. So I took my time and tested the lens for a good 45 minutes in the store, after that I was sold. This thing is SHARP!

Took the lens out for a little testing today. The weather was pretty grey, but managed to get few ok shots. Can't wait for some better weather!


Took this while walking between island on the coast of Helsinki. You can see the open water at the background.


I took a bunch of photos of Madelen last week as the sun came up for a bit.

I've been wanting to do a diptych for a while now and these seemed to be perfect for it. Tried using Lightroom to create this but failed miserably so I had to use the good old Photoshop to do the trick.

Taken with Olympus OM-D and Voigtlander 17.5mm f0.95 lens, at around f1.4.

First snow

We got the first proper snow today.

This is one of the first test photos I've taken with my new Olympus OM-D E-M5 and M. Zuiko Digital ED 12mm f/2.0 lens combo.

Congratulations you two

Matias and Saara just made official that they got engaged. Story goes that Matias already popped the question while we were in San Diego but they officially told everyone (read: posted it on Facebook) yesterday. Congratulations!

Love you guys.
