Ever since I can remember, I have liked Photography, even though I really did not take it all to seriously during most of my Teens. Back then, I was an awful Photographer. Back then, I blamed that partly on my Gear, I never had a good Camera back then, and the one in my iPod… Continue reading Becoming a better Photographer
I really like Köln. Over the Years, I have been there a few Times already, mostly through University. It was always nice. But the best Time I had there was when I got to visit Photokina back in 2018. I want to visit again, but since the Fair got postponed indefinitely this Year, that will… Continue reading #TSBTP: That Time in Köln
For pretty much all of January and February, maybe even longer, I pretty much exclusively used one Prime Lens in my Photography. I even kinda liked it. But after going back and using my Zooms again at the Oderteich last Saturday, I finally realized how much I actually limited myself by just using that Lens.… Continue reading I prefer Zooms
Yesterday, I visited the Oderteich for the first Time in quite a While. I did something else differently as well though: After just using one Prime Lens for the last few Months, I switched back to my Zooms. That Prime Lens is really awesome, and I will definitely continue using it. Just not exclusively. After… Continue reading Limiting Choices

I absolutely love it to go out and Wander around doing Photography. I also walk to Work a lot recently. And for both those Things, having a Backpack is pretty much Essential. Sling Bags are also good, but not really meant for Lon Distance Stuff. Those are better for Inter-Office Travel or when you just… Continue reading Stuff in my Bag.
I still remember when I got my first Camera. It was a shoddy 35mm Point and Shoot, but I absolutely loved it. I think believe was when I turned six or seven Years old. I got that Camera for my Birthday back then, my my first Roll of Film was done before the Day had… Continue reading My Foto History.
For most of this Year, and even Parts of last December, I have been pretty much exclusively using my 22mm Pancake Lens as a Creative Challenge, but also because I wanted to pack light. After all this Time, I feel like I might be able to say something about using Prime Lenses. Spoiler Alert: It… Continue reading Using a Prime Lens.
Usually, I prefer it to use Zoom Lenses in my Photography. The only Reason fo that is their Versatility. But lately, I have been using my 22mm Prime Lens pretty much exclusively. And I really like it. But that is not what this Post is about. There is one coming though. But first I feel… Continue reading Zooming with your Feet?
I really do not like it to use Tripods, they are big, bulky and take some Time to set up and adjust Properly. To me, Tripods are generally a Pain. But yesterday, I actually brought my old Manfrotto Befree into the Okertal to just give it a Shot. I thought that I might be able… Continue reading Using a Tripod.
