I will always love Fog.

Today, the Weather was horrible. Or at least that is what I have been told. I really could not see much of it at work. But when my shift was over, it was actually not that bad. The only thing remaining from the earlier downpour was a heavy fog above the Harz that I spotted… Continue reading I will always love Fog.

Filters and I.

Photographers use Filters. And there are a whole lot of different ones. UV Filters, ND Filter and Pol Filters are just a few. And every single one has a different purpose. I barely ever used any Filters, except for my Variable ND Filter. And I pretty much only use that for Video. I do not… Continue reading Filters and I.

Still disliking Tripods.

I really love Landscape Photography. It is awesome to go out to Explore and get some beautiful Fotos of Nature. A lot of bonafide Landscape Photographers swear on using Tripods and several Filters. I do not do any of that. And while I own a Tripod, because I used to really dig Long Exposures, I… Continue reading Still disliking Tripods.

Cars & Landscapes.

I usually consider myself a Travel Photographer, mostly because I like a lot of Photography Styles and do not want to hang my self up on a specific field of Creativity. But lately, most of my Photography actually consists of Landscapes, magnificent Vistas, beautiful Forests and Paths through Nature are all awesome Subjects for me.… Continue reading Cars & Landscapes.

My first Lens.

At the very end of the year 2015, I got my first DSLR Camera. It came with a Kit Lens, but I really anted to have something better. Back then, YouTube had me believe that every Photographer should have a Nifty 50. And so I decided to get one. My choice fell between Canons 50mm… Continue reading My first Lens.

Good Fotos in bad Weather.

Today, the Weather was quite awful. It was kind of cold, and it rained all the time. And even though that Rain was much needed , it also limited my photographic Options. My Camera is not Weather Proof in any way, and I also do not want to use my Phone for just about anything… Continue reading Good Fotos in bad Weather.

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.

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.

Manual Mode.

Most Cameras have loads of different Exposure Modes, each giving you more or less control over how it Exposes your Foto. Some let you set the Aperture, the Shutter Speed or the ISO. Manual Mode allows you to set all of those Settings to your liking. Actually, it more or less forces you to select… Continue reading Manual Mode.

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.
