Removing Distractions with Photoshop.

Usually, I do not Remove Stuff from Photos. But with me getting better at Photoshop, that kinda changed. Now, I still do not get crazy with any of the Healing Brushes. I just remove Things that are Distracting and or Annoying in the Image. Usually, I just take out Small Things though. Wild Trash Bags.… Continue reading Removing Distractions with Photoshop.

Stay away from Rails.

Lately I see them on Instagram over and over again: Portraits and Selfies taken on active Train Tracks. There where tons of such Pictures a while ago, and I still do not understand why People take them. Sure, Rails are cool, they can signify a way Forward. But Trains run on Rails, and Trains are… Continue reading Stay away from Rails.

Woodland Photography.

I used to not like Woodland Photography to much. This past few weeks, starting when I visited the WeltWald, I actually started to enjoy Woodland Photography though. And I do not mean taking Pictures of Forests, but inside of them, off the beaten path. And that is kind off Fun. In a Forest. I always… Continue reading Woodland Photography.

Mobile Editing.

I love Photography. And for me, Editing some bland RAW Files and turning them into something beautiful is a big part of Photography. And sometimes, it is actually the part that I actually like the most. That is because through Editing, I can give the Photos that I took my own aesthetic. Through editing, I… Continue reading Mobile Editing.

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.

I really dislike Tripods.

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.

The Unholy Trinity.

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.

Fog, Mist & Haze.

Landscape Photography is so awesome. I usually prefer good Visibility for my Photography, but sometimes, it is quite Foggy here in the Harz. I used to not shoot when it was Foggy. But lately, I came to like that quite a bit. Fog just makes the Picture that little bit more mystical. And I really… Continue reading Fog, Mist & Haze.

Holding Stuff in in front of my Camera.

I really love Landscape Photography. For me, a truly stunning Landscape speaks for itself. But sometimes, I really love it to hold Stuff in front of my Camera just for fun. In Autumn, Leafs are great example of Stuff that does very well in front of a Camera. Especially if you love those beautiful Autumn… Continue reading Holding Stuff in in front of my Camera.

Planning Photoshoots.

I absolutely love Landscape Photography. It is kind of my thing. But sometimes, you have to plan ahead for a Photoshoot go right. After figuring out where and what I want to shoot, I use some Map service to find out who to get where I want to go. I also try to find the… Continue reading Planning Photoshoots.
