Kit Lenses.

On my Family Trip to Lübeck last Month, my old 18-55mm Kit Lens plain out refused to work. It was very dirty and I had not been using it in a long Time. Last Week, I then discovered that most of my absolute favourite Fotos were actually taken with that plasticky Kit Lens, and I… Continue reading Kit Lenses.

Bring Batteries.

I really love Photography. I also love my Mirrorless Digital Camera. But there are two things that can totally ruin the Experience. Cards and Batteries. Today, I was out trying to take some Fotos for FoodTribe. I had everything with me. My Props, a few Lenses my Camera with a SD Card in it and… Continue reading Bring Batteries.

My usual Camera Settings.

Landscape Photography is awesome. I really love being out in Nature, Exploring around and taking beautiful Fotos at the same Time. But I am pretty sure that I do things quite differently from the ‘proper’ Landscape Photographers. For Starters, I rarely use Tripods, because I generally despise using Tripods. A beautiful Tree. I guess that… Continue reading My usual Camera Settings.

Does Resolution matter?

Most Cameras today have around 20-24 Megapixels. But the Trend seems to go up to and beyond the 40 Megapixel mark. But is that all really necessary? My Opinion might surprise you. As with all Things Photography related, there is no clear Answer to the Resolution Question. It off course all depends on what you… Continue reading Does Resolution matter?

Replacing Skies.

I never really found Sky Replacements that Interesting. It is not that I have a Problem with it, I just did not think it was something I would ever even consider doing myself. But now that I have upgraded to Photoshop 2021, and it comes with a very easy to use Sky Replacement Feature, I… Continue reading Replacing Skies.

I miss my 50mm.

Last Week, my Canon 50mm 1:1.8 STM fell into an old Sinkhole near Düna. I tried to get it back out, but to no avail. The Area was to Dangerous, and the Lens is in all likelihood completely destroyed anyways. When I got my first DSLR for Christmas back in 2016, I first only had… Continue reading I miss my 50mm.

Tele-Landscapes.

Usually, Landscape Photography is done with Wide Angle Lenses. And those can produce some beautiful Results. But sometimes, there can be to much beauty in one Frame. 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.

I will always love Fog.

Today, the Weather was horrible. Or at least that is what I have been told. I really could not see much of it at work. But when my shift was over, it was actually not that bad. The only thing remaining from the earlier downpour was a heavy fog above the Harz that I spotted… Continue reading I will always love Fog.

Filters and I.

Photographers use Filters. And there are a whole lot of different ones. UV Filters, ND Filter and Pol Filters are just a few. And every single one has a different purpose. I barely ever used any Filters, except for my Variable ND Filter. And I pretty much only use that for Video. I do not… Continue reading Filters and I.

Still disliking Tripods.

I really love Landscape Photography. It is awesome to go out to Explore and get some beautiful Fotos of Nature. A lot of bonafide Landscape Photographers swear on using Tripods and several Filters. I do not do any of that. And while I own a Tripod, because I used to really dig Long Exposures, I… Continue reading Still disliking Tripods.
