I do not like Tripods very much. But sometimes, I really do like it to do some Long Exposure Photography, especially of Trains. Since I had an Appointment in Dortmund yesterday, and since I got there with the Train, I did some Long Exposure Photography in Braunschweig on my Way back Home. And I used… Continue reading Long Exposures with a tiny Tripod.
A while ago, I found an old Stormtrooper Keychain in my old Legos. Ever since then, that Thing lives in or on my Backpack. Sometimes, it is also a lot of fun to take some Fotos with the Stormtrooper. And because everyone/ everything needs a Name, I started to call the Figure Beni the Stormtrooper,… Continue reading Beni the Stormtrooper.
Sometimes, it can look really cool to do some Second Hand Photography. And I do not mean stealing from other People or blatantly copying their Ideas. I am talking about Photographic Inception, where you shoot a Scene through a secondary Camera, like your Smartphone. You can also do it the other Way around, but the… Continue reading Cameras in Front of Cameras.
Yesterday, I visited the Flambacher Teiche for the first Time. I did something new and exiting. And that is a good thing. You should do something you have not yet done every once in a while to broaden your Horizons. Even if you just visit a Place you have not been before. Sometimes, that is… Continue reading Do something New.

That is where Tele Lenses, like a 100-400mm Lens (about 60-250mm on APS-C) can help. Going long forces you to think about what is in Frame and what… Continue reading Tele-Landscapes.

Because of that, I always considered a Gimbal to be a waste of Money. And for now, it is definitely going to stay that way. But… Continue reading Smooth handheld Video.
Yesterday, I spent a little Time at the Sösetalsperre being a little creative in the Rain. I had a great Time, but I was unable to finish the Video I shot there. And it is only just over two Minutes long. Anyways, here it is: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dzHRHkgYEww
Today was a busy Day. But it was also less busy than I had anticipated. But it was also a very Rainy Day. Just like it was forecast. I still headed out to the Sösetalsperre after getting myself something to Eat and something to Drink. At the Talsperre. After having Lunch in my Car, I… Continue reading Today in the Rain.
WARNING: Ultra Technical Post ahead. Also longer than usual. Usually, people use Panoramas to show wide Vistas in one Shot. And that is all good and well. I sometimes even do that myself. But over these last few Days, I did a few Panoramas for a completely different Reason. My Goal was to create some… Continue reading Resolution Panoramas.
Sometimes, I am a real Night Owl. I love it to capture Fotos and shoot Videos at Night. I have no Idea why that is so, but it is. I have made several Mistakes in the Past when it comes to creating Media in the Dark before. Such as using the wrong Shutter Speed or… Continue reading Filming in the Dark.
