Photography is awesome. But there are a lot of things you might do that can mar the experience. And I am definitely no Stranger to those Mistakes. One of such Mistake are dead Batteries.

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.

Flippy Screens are awesome.

A few days ago, I saw some reactions to a Fuji Camera Announcement. There were quite a few people complaining about articulated Screens on Cameras. And I absolutely love those things. Ever since I got my Canon M5, I absolutely love the flip down Screen it comes with. But I also think that a fully… Continue reading Flippy Screens are awesome.

Trying some Product Photography.

Today, I had to take an early morning Physics Exam. After that, I wanted to get out and do some Photography in the Nature. But it was cold and wet and I really did not like it outdoors. So, after spending a little time at my Formula Student Teams Workshop and having some food, I… Continue reading Trying some Product Photography.

My tightest Lens.

As a Photographer, I do own several Lenses, covering all the Focal Lengths from 18mm to 250mm. And the largest bit of that Range is actually done by only one Lens. It is my Canon EF-S 55-250mm Lens. Back in 2016, I wanted to get a tighter Lens because my Kit Lens only goes from… Continue reading My tightest Lens.

I used to love Long Exposures…

Long Exposure Photography can be really fun. You can also get some awesome Pictures out of it. But there are several downsides as well. One example is that you usually need a Tripod to shoot some tasty Long Exposures. And I really do not like Tripods. They are just a nuisance to use. They just… Continue reading I used to love Long Exposures…

Landscape Photography with a Portrait Lens.

I absolutely love Landscape Photography. It is awesome. I have used all kinds of Lenses for Landscape Photography. Mostly Wide-angle Zooms. Or Telephoto Lenses. But last week, I decided to shoot some Landscapes with my 50mm f/1.8, a classic Portrait Lens on APS-C. I have done that before, but lately, I feel inspired to write… Continue reading Landscape Photography with a Portrait Lens.

Printing my own Images

At the End of 2018, I got myself a small Photo Printer. Now, since I have used it continuously for about a Year, I feel qualified to give you my opinion on it. Back then, the Printer of my Choice was a Canon CP1300. And I am still mostly happy with it. It is just… Continue reading Printing my own Images

I love Wide Shots.

I love Photography, and lately, I also really love Hiking. And when I am Hiking, I prefer to pack light. So I usually bring only a few Lenses with me. Usually, I bring my Primes and a Zoom or two. Shot near Oberschulenberg. But lately, I mainly use my Ultra-wide 10-18mm Lens the most. I… Continue reading I love Wide Shots.
