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.
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.
When it comes to Lenses, a lot of Photographers speak of the Holy Trinity of Lenses. What that means is, that there are only three Lenses that you need to be able to do any kind of Photography. Usually, those Lenses are a 16-35mm, a 24-70mm and a 70-200mm. But those only really do the… Continue reading The Unholy Trinity.
I really love Photography. But sometimes, it is a lot of fun to spice up the game a little bit. Lately, I try to do so by trying out different, new perspectives. And a great way to do so is my ‘new’ 10-18mm Ultra-Wide Lens, that I got used for 100€. At 10mm, it is… Continue reading Changing Perspectives.
A while ago, I wrote about Primal Photography, or Photography using Prime Lenses. I own two of those, my 22mm f/2.0 and my old trustworthy 50mm f/1.8. Those are my absolute favourite Lenses. When I got my first DSLR in 2015, I quickly figured out that I wanted to own one special Prime Lens. Back… Continue reading I really love my Prime Lenses.
A lot of new Photographers tend to believe that newer Cameras can take their Photography to the next level. But sometimes they do not even think of changing from their Kit Lens. And usually, Kit Lenses are not the best. I wont say they plain out suck, because they do not. I still have my… Continue reading Lenses over Cameras.
Last October I ditched my Canon 100D in favour of the mirrorless Canon M5. And as much as I love that Camera, there are definitely some flaws in the System, most of them I have my own solution for. The biggest Pro of going Mirrorless for me is, by far, having an EVF instead of… Continue reading Pros & Cons of going Mirrorless.
The first lens I ever bought for my then Canon 100D, not counting the Kit Lens, now is one of my all time favourites. I just absolutely love my Nifty Fifty. It is also my Fastest Lens. And it is so cheap! Back in early 2016, when I bought it, I just paid around 100… Continue reading I absolutely love this Lens.
I absolutely love Night Photography, especially Long Exposures. But doing so in the rain has, up until now, been pretty much impossible for me. I would have always needed a roof or a ledge to stand under and protect my Camera from the weather. That has changed a few days ago, when my plastic Rain… Continue reading Night Photography in the Rain.
A lot of people are very good at shredding apart Camera Brands online just based on specs. But do those even matter? Nowadays, whenever a new Camera gets released, the online Trolls start coming out of their caves ad start complaining that X doesn't do Y or that Y is better than Z. In real… Continue reading Your Camera doesn’t matter.
