Phone vs Camera.

Smartphone Cameras nowadays are the best they have ever been. And since I just got a new one, I decided to pitch it against my trusty Canon M5 in a fun little shootout. And I can definitely say that Image Quality is definitely getting there. Dynamic Range really is not even close, but the Phone… Continue reading Phone vs Camera.

Back in Düna.

Today, I was in Düna just to the south of Osterode to try and find some beautiful red Poppies to shoot. Spoiler Alert: I did not get lucky. The Field that was a full of Wheat last Year was just a big old yard of Grass today, and there were absolutely no Poppies to be… Continue reading Back in Düna.

Mein Stück Harz.

I really love the Harz. But due to the immense Heat and the lack of Rain in the past few Years, a lot of the local Fir Trees were unable to defend themselves against the common Bark Beetle. And because of that, there are a lot of dead Trees in the Harz. And while the… Continue reading Mein Stück Harz.

The Achtermannshöhe Video.

A few Days ago, I hiked up to the Achtermannshöhe near Oderbrück all by my lonesome. On the second half of my Hike, I also shot some Video.

Taking Fotos of your everyday surroundings is also a good way to hone your Skills as a Photographer. That way, you learn to see the world with different… Continue reading Just take Fotos.

Some of my Videos.

Lately, I enjoy it more and more to shoot Video next to, or sometimes even instead of, Fotos. And I think that I am getting better at it, though I still have loads to learn. Usually, I shoot all my Video in 25fps 1080p. My Camera could do more, but 25fps is the closest I… Continue reading Some of my Videos.
