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.

Just take Fotos.

Sometimes it is a lot of fun to just go outside and take Fotos of random things. I really like to do that every now and then. 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.

Changing how I edit.

I usually edit my Fotos in Lightroom, and I will continue continue doing that. But after a long time with no real Changes to my Style I recently grew more and more dissatisfied with my Fotos. That is why I played around for quite a while today editing one Foto over and over, even going… Continue reading Changing how I edit.

Colourful Streets.

Usually, Street Photography looks best in Black and White. But sometimes, Colourful Street Fotos also look quite nice.

A red coat in… Continue reading Colourful Streets.

At the Oderteich.

Yesterday after Work, I really needed some fresh Air. And after some deliberation, I decided to go to the Oderteich in the Harz. I had a great, albeit short time there. But this Story is not about that. It is about how I almost lost every single Picture I took at the Teich. And it… Continue reading At the Oderteich.

Black & White.

Usually, I shoot and edit my Fotos in Colour. And usually, that is all I need. But sometimes, Black & White Fotos just look way better. Sometimes, I really love it to leave all those beautiful Colours aside and go fully Monochrome. There are Fotos that really do not work in Black & White. But… Continue reading Black & White.
