Stuff in my Backpack.

I pretty much go everywhere with my Backpack. It is an important Part of my everyday Life. And I have quite a bit of Stuff inside of my Backpack. And most of it has nothing to do with Photography. My Backpack. But of Course I also have some Camera Gear with me pretty much always.… Continue reading Stuff in my Backpack.

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.

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.

Filming with my iPhone.

Yesterday, I took a few Fotos with my new iPhone 11 to compare them to my Camera in a fun little competition. Today, I decided to go out and shoot a short Video with it. To shoot the Video, I used two Apps, FilMic Pro and FilMic DoubleTake. I filmed in Log and also with… Continue reading Filming with my iPhone.

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.

That Time my Camera took a dive.

Last Year I spent a whole week rail tripping the Netherlands. It was awesome. I also spend a day in Rotterdam, and I really liked it there. But I also had one really heart breaking Moment. My Camera somehow detached from the Lens I was using, and that was connected to my Camera Strap, and… Continue reading That Time my Camera took a dive.

The thing about BBAF.

The last few Days I have been trying out Back Button Auto Focus, or BBAF, on my Canon M5. It does not have a designated Button for that, but you can Map that Function to the Auto Exposure Lock Button. The thing is: I really do not like BBAF. On my tiny Camera, the AEL… Continue reading The thing about BBAF.

Why it is important to clean your Gear.

Dirty Camera Gear inevitably leads to Problems down the Road. And even though your Camera is just a Tool to you, it is generally a good Idea to take Care of your Tools. Cleaning your Kit is quite easy. You just have to do it every now and then. And the easiest way to plan… Continue reading Why it is important to clean your Gear.

Revisiting the Evermacro Device.

About one Year ago, I blew my own Mind with the Evermacro Device, a small Adapter that allows you to turn any Lens into a Macro Lens. And since I am currently only going outside when I need to, I thought that it would be a nice Idea to revisit that magical Tool by doing… Continue reading Revisiting the Evermacro Device.
