How I find Inspiration.

I love Photography, but sometimes, my Creativity is exhausted. So I go to the Internet to look for Inspiration. Looking for Inspiration from other Photographers is a good thing in my opinion. It is always a good idea to look at Photos someone else took before you go to a location just to check out… Continue reading How I find Inspiration.

Lenses over Cameras.

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.

Playing with Perspective.

You can tell Stories through Photography and influence what people think in many ways. The most powerful of them being Perspective. There are various ways in which you might change Perspective to induce certain feelings in the viewer. Like being small, or big. Or anything in between. Shot from down low. Going down low, or… Continue reading Playing with Perspective.

Trying out AEB.

Today we had a rather short but massive hailstorm here in the Harz. And it it absolutely nothing to douse the heat. But that is not what todays blog is about. It is about Auto Exposure Bracketing, or AEB. I have written about HDR Photography before, and AEB actually does pretty much the same. It… Continue reading Trying out AEB.

Long Exposure Photography.

Some of my best pictures so far have been Long Exposures. It just seems to me that I am actually not to bad at it. Even though I absolutely love Long Exposure Photography, I am usually way to impatient to set up my tripod and get my settings dialled in. Luckily, you can also do… Continue reading Long Exposure Photography.

Pros & Cons of going Mirrorless.

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.

Why I do not use Manual Focus.

A lot of really good Landscape Photogrpahers, like Thomas Heaton for example, swear on using Manual Focus for Accuracy and Sharpness. I only use Manual Focus when I really have to, what is not usually the case. And that is not because I have no clue when it comes to focussing manually, I am actually… Continue reading Why I do not use Manual Focus.

What is Travel Photography?

There are many Styles of Photography, like Landscapes, Architecture or Street Photography. Travel Photography combines all those Styles and more into a single package, so you do not have to choose what kind of Photographer you want to be. Just be a Travel Photographer. Landscapes can really immerse the Future Traveller into their destination and… Continue reading What is Travel Photography?

Architecture.

I absolutely love great looking Buildings and other beautiful Architecture. So off course I also take pictures of those things. One such example of a really cool looking Building is one of my Universities Institutes, the CZM. Its outside is primarily constructed of large steel sheets and glass. The roof itself flows over into the… Continue reading Architecture.

Shooting Vertical.

Ever since it broke away from the Square, people started shooting more Vertical for that valuable Instagram Real Estate. And while there are ways to post Landscape Shots to the Platform without loosing out on Feed Space, Shooting Vertical is here to stay. And while all the Settings remain pretty much identical to when you… Continue reading Shooting Vertical.
