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.

Filming in the Dark.

Sometimes, I really love it to do some Filming at Night, when the only Light available comes from Buildings, passing Cars and Streetlights. I actually enjoy shooting at Night way more than I enjoy shooting in Daylight. I guess that is because at Night, I do not have to remember putting on my ND Filter.… Continue reading Filming in the Dark.

The Pfauenteiche.

The Pfauenteiche are three of the many Teiche around Clausthal. But they are much more than just that. Before and during World War 2, a TNT Factory was operating on one side of the Teiche, and the Area is still dangerously polluted and thus under permanent lock-down. The ‘Werk Tanne’, that is the Name of… Continue reading The Pfauenteiche.

My favourite Building in Clausthal.

There are a lot of beautiful Buildings in Clausthal. Like the blue Marktkirche, or the Universities Aula Academia. But the one Building I really like is totally different from all the others. The CZM is a part of University, and instead of being a simple, plain box, it consists of two ‘rounded’ boxes, where the… Continue reading My favourite Building in Clausthal.

Clausthal from above.

I really like Clausthal. Not just because I go to University there, but because it is a beautiful place. During yesterday’s Montgolfiade, I had the chance to take a trip up in a Balloon Cage on a Crane. And I took it. I knew that I wanted to take that Crane ride before I even… Continue reading Clausthal from above.

The Montgolfiade.

Today, and also yesterday, the first ever Montgolfiade* was held in Clausthal. That is a Hot Air Balloon Festival. And it was a busy one. When the brothers Montgolfiere invented the Hot Air Ballon a few hundred years ago, they would have never thought that multiple festivals would be named in their honour. But that… Continue reading The Montgolfiade.

I barely go to the Bergbauernmarkt anymore.

I absolutely love the Bergbauernmarkt in Zellerfeld. You can get everything there, but mostly food. And the food is awesome. There is just so much variety. You can even get Dutch, Hungarian and other international goodies there. But the thing is: It is always extremely crowded right from the get go. And while I have… Continue reading I barely go to the Bergbauernmarkt anymore.

GVRacer 8 Rollout.

I'm a Formula Student guy. My team is called Green Voltage Racing e.V. and we're based in Clausthal. Today was the rollout of our GVRacer 8. I'm not going to say much about what our car can or can't do, I do not know a lot about those things, I'm a media team guy. All… Continue reading GVRacer 8 Rollout.

Yet another Teich.

As I've said before, there are many lakes around Clausthal. Today, I made my way to the Hasenbacher Teich to have my dinner and take some pictures. Situated between Clausthal and Buntenbock, the Hasenbacher Teich is, during the summer time, the place to go swim if you are from Osterode and you want to swim… Continue reading Yet another Teich.

Shooting landscapes with a telephoto lens.

Usually, I use wide angle lenses for my landscape photography. To challenge my creativity, I used my telephoto lens exclusively today. And I actually enjoyed it. I own 4 lenses, 2 of them I usually use for landscape photography, those would be my 18-55mm kit lens and my 22mm pancake lens. Today though, the only… Continue reading Shooting landscapes with a telephoto lens.
