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.

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.

Werk Tanne.

The Harz has a long History. Some of that History is awesome, like how it came that there are so many Teiche in the Area. But not all History in the Harz is good. Being in Germany, the Third Reich and World War II also happened here in the Harz. There were Camps and forced… Continue reading Werk Tanne.

Manual Mode.

Most Cameras have loads of different Exposure Modes, each giving you more or less control over how it Exposes your Foto. Some let you set the Aperture, the Shutter Speed or the ISO. Manual Mode allows you to set all of those Settings to your liking. Actually, it more or less forces you to select… Continue reading Manual Mode.

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.

Editing with Lightroom CC

A while ago, I downloaded Lightroom CC to my Laptop so that I could have my custom presets on my iPhone. I still mainly edited with Lightroom Classic CC, and I still do that. But today I decided to actually try and edit a Photo entirely on my iPhone. After an early morning Exam, it… Continue reading Editing with Lightroom CC

About small Apertures.

Most Lenses can change their Aperture, or their F-Stop. Most Lenses go to about f/22 or even higher. I do not usually use F-Stop over f/16. Here are my reasons. OFF course you should always keep your Camera, and especially its’ Sensor clean. But sometimes, small Dust Particles still get into the System. At smaller… Continue reading About small Apertures.

Why I don’t usually use tripods.

A lot of landscape photographers use tripods and ND or graduated filters for their photography. They usually also wait for the perfect light. I don't use my tripod that frequently. Tripods are just a hassle to set up and move around to find your composition. Off course they have their place in landscape photography, and… Continue reading Why I don’t usually use tripods.
