Last October I ditched my Canon 100D in favour of the mirrorless Canon M5. And as much as I love that Camera, there are definitely some flaws in the System, most of them I have my own solution for. The biggest Pro of going Mirrorless for me is, by far, having an EVF instead of… Continue reading Pros & Cons of going Mirrorless.
A lot of really good Landscape Photogrpahers, like Thomas Heaton for example, swear on using Manual Focus for Accuracy and Sharpness. I only use Manual Focus when I really have to, what is not usually the case. And that is not because I have no clue when it comes to focussing manually, I am actually… Continue reading Why I do not use Manual Focus.
There are many Styles of Photography, like Landscapes, Architecture or Street Photography. Travel Photography combines all those Styles and more into a single package, so you do not have to choose what kind of Photographer you want to be. Just be a Travel Photographer. Landscapes can really immerse the Future Traveller into their destination and… Continue reading What is Travel Photography?
I absolutely love great looking Buildings and other beautiful Architecture. So off course I also take pictures of those things. One such example of a really cool looking Building is one of my Universities Institutes, the CZM. Its outside is primarily constructed of large steel sheets and glass. The roof itself flows over into the… Continue reading Architecture.
Ever since it broke away from the Square, people started shooting more Vertical for that valuable Instagram Real Estate. And while there are ways to post Landscape Shots to the Platform without loosing out on Feed Space, Shooting Vertical is here to stay. And while all the Settings remain pretty much identical to when you… Continue reading Shooting Vertical.
Ever since I got a little Rain Cover for my Camera and a proper Rain Poncho for myself, we had way to good weather here in Germany to really give those things a try. And while I knew the Camera Rain Cover worked, I wanted to do more with it. Today I got the chance,… Continue reading Photography in the Rain is awesome!
Usually, I take fairly 'normal' Photos. But sometimes I also take Incepted Photos. That is when I bring up the Camera app on my phone and then take a picture of me taking a picture. Lately I've seen a lot of people doing it with Photoshop though. I do not have anything against using Photoshop,… Continue reading Photographic Inception.
Blue skies are beautiful, but they are so boring when it comes to Landscape Photography. Clouds are an easy, natural way to spice up any Landscape Shot. If you read my blog before, you know that Contrast and Content in Landscapes. And Clouds are the easiest way to achieve those two Aspects. You do not… Continue reading I prefer Clouds in Landscapes.
There is no better way to Capture day to day life than Street Photography. And while I do not usually pursue the craft, I do love it. Some people might think that Street Photography in Europe is pretty much Illegal thanks to new privacy laws like the EUGDPR (EU General Data Protection Regulation), but it… Continue reading I love Street Photography. Sometimes.
The first lens I ever bought for my then Canon 100D, not counting the Kit Lens, now is one of my all time favourites. I just absolutely love my Nifty Fifty. It is also my Fastest Lens. And it is so cheap! Back in early 2016, when I bought it, I just paid around 100… Continue reading I absolutely love this Lens.
