Iceland 2017


Hello. I visited Iceland. I visited EVE online fanfest. I was a bit sick the hole trip, shit. Here is some photos I managed to take during this trip. Those wide images are not just cropped images. They are actually around 15 000 to 20 000 pixels width. Yeah baby!

Winter Frost 56123


Oh thank you planet and chaos for Saturdays frost. I had the opportunity to go out and take couple of frost shots. Keeping in mind the pale, the dead, the wall canvas art kind of crap that people would but on their wall. Yes I can sell you one of these images and you can print it to canvas board thing. It would be such great success for you.  

Dog Portraits


I have long wanted to  take couple shots of our dogs with BLACK background. Black dogs and black background. Awesome! of course! I have lost me flash remote transmitter so flash was out of the picture. I used two “video lights”. The way lights are positioned is rather simple and you can find it out in the pictures. If not…then please go away. After the shots some lightroom adjustments and after that trough Photoshop. What did I do in Photoshop? Well I removed all unnessesary things like hairs/dust etc. Then I did some eye magig also. Eyes are not that […]

Anyway she is here and here is some shots of her. Also I think my Instagram account is heavily powered by Kelpies, so stay tuned! https://www.instagram.com/t.honkamies/

Experimental part7345543


For long time now, since our office moved to new location. I have had these printer inks. Also on the same move I got one old aquarium that had served in our cool IT room for aeons. With these two I had in mind the old classic water and ink flowing down to the bottom. I did manage to do it…at last. But well it was a bit harder than I tought. Why you might ask? Well only actual reason is that the water would need to be easy to change. Think about having 60l of water and no clever […]

Old projects part.76343


Long time ago I took some shots of finnish band. For security reasons I will not tell that the bands name is naildown or something like that. :) Anyway, Fun project. Done with to remote flash and with good evil spirits. Here is some samples from the session. I just wanted to but this out so that it doesn’t go into the deep and vanish.  

IR photography


I have been doing some IR photography stuff lately. I bought new IR filter from ebay. I had one before but it got smashed. My filter is from the low end of scale. So how I see is that I can use a bit faster shutter then with my previous filter. Well maybe I should read something about this shit. I’m mostly going by the “feeling”. But anyway, here is some of the shots. I also had the idea that I could make a IR timelapse video. More about that laterz….

Happy Birthday Taika


Couple of words about random and really professional dog shooting that took place in the dark forest. Main goal was to take some 2 years happy birthday pics of our Taika dog. Nothing of the shoot was planned. I just had my flash things with me and off we go. Afecter just common random shooting this idea of jumping picture came to mind. As she is rather super brilliant dog it was easy to control her so that she would jump to the toy from certain direction. After some tests the outcome was much better than I first thought. I […]

Sigma 150-600mm sport review


Here is small review about that Sigma lens. I’m not good in writing or nor I have any experience about reviews. These are my views and experiences with the lens. So I had been looking for longer mm then 200mm for a long time. I don’t remember how I found this lens. Maybe just reading something about some zoom lens around the interwebz. Anyway I watched some sample shots and thought that this looks good. Then I checked some youtube reviews about the lens. Well they were a bit mixed up. Some negative words about the weight of the lens […]
