Landscape Photography with a Portrait Lens.

I absolutely love Landscape Photography. It is awesome. I have used all kinds of Lenses for Landscape Photography. Mostly Wide-angle Zooms. Or Telephoto Lenses. But last week, I decided to shoot some Landscapes with my 50mm f/1.8, a classic Portrait Lens on APS-C. I have done that before, but lately, I feel inspired to write… Continue reading Landscape Photography with a Portrait Lens.

Printing my own Images

At the End of 2018, I got myself a small Photo Printer. Now, since I have used it continuously for about a Year, I feel qualified to give you my opinion on it. Back then, the Printer of my Choice was a Canon CP1300. And I am still mostly happy with it. It is just… Continue reading Printing my own Images

I love Wide Shots.

I love Photography, and lately, I also really love Hiking. And when I am Hiking, I prefer to pack light. So I usually bring only a few Lenses with me. Usually, I bring my Primes and a Zoom or two. Shot near Oberschulenberg. But lately, I mainly use my Ultra-wide 10-18mm Lens the most. I… Continue reading I love Wide Shots.

Look Down (Sometimes).

I absolutely love grand, captivating Landscapes. They are one of the best Things in Photography in my opinion. But sometimes, the more intricate Details are equally as impressive, and sometimes even more so. Sometimes, you have to look down to see grandeur. Somewhere in Hattorf. Today, I was out for a short Hike with my… Continue reading Look Down (Sometimes).

Pixel Peeping.

Digital Photography is awesome. You can pretty much do what you want, and you are only limited by the size of your Memory Card. And those usually hold way more than just 36 Shots. But all that Pixely Goodness also has its downsides. Because you can do what you want, you can also easily overdo… Continue reading Pixel Peeping.

Removing Distractions with Photoshop.

Usually, I do not Remove Stuff from Photos. But with me getting better at Photoshop, that kinda changed. Now, I still do not get crazy with any of the Healing Brushes. I just remove Things that are Distracting and or Annoying in the Image. Usually, I just take out Small Things though. Wild Trash Bags.… Continue reading Removing Distractions with Photoshop.

Stay away from Rails.

Lately I see them on Instagram over and over again: Portraits and Selfies taken on active Train Tracks. There where tons of such Pictures a while ago, and I still do not understand why People take them. Sure, Rails are cool, they can signify a way Forward. But Trains run on Rails, and Trains are… Continue reading Stay away from Rails.

Mobile Editing.

I love Photography. And for me, Editing some bland RAW Files and turning them into something beautiful is a big part of Photography. And sometimes, it is actually the part that I actually like the most. That is because through Editing, I can give the Photos that I took my own aesthetic. Through editing, I… Continue reading Mobile Editing.

The one Exception.

While I usually find Tripods appalling, there is actually one Exception to that rule: My miniature Tabletop Tripod. I actually quite like that little thing. Maybe, that makes me a hypocrite, but I would not really care. Because sometimes, I love it to take some tasty Long Exposures. And while I have done so without… Continue reading The one Exception.

I really dislike Tripods.

A while ago, I wrote that I do not usually use Tripods for my Photography. I now feel the need to elaborate a little further. While I do own a tripod or two, they are an absolute displeasure to use. One could even go as far as to say that I really hate tripods. Shot… Continue reading I really dislike Tripods.
