I always wanted to capture this photograph. The best sunset my city can possibly offer. It graces the cover of a coffee table book about Nuremberg by famous local photographer Herbert Liedel, who passed away in 2015. But this image it is hard to get. To find out why continue reading…Continue reading “Nuremberg’s Best Sunset”
Färdder Kärwa – a difficult term for my English speaking readers. It is the local name of the Michaeliskirchweih in Nuremberg’s neighboring city of Fürth, a city fair that annually starts on the Saturday following the name day of Archangel Michael, typically at the end of September. A great opportunity to head over to Fürth and take my 17 and 25mm F/1.2 prime lenses for a nightly spin….Continue reading “Färdder Kärwa”
October 3rd is our National Holiday here in Germany. A perfect opportunity to take The Significant Other and my newly acquired (used – of course) “Nifty Fifty” for a walk into the autumnal landscape outside Nuremberg.Continue reading “Nifty Fifty”

My best shot from an afternoon outing on what was supposed to be the last really warm and sunny Sunday this year. I have no idea what the boy was doing half inside in the fountain, but I thought it looked hilarious.
Taken with the Olympus OM-D E-M1X and the mZuiko 12-100mm F/4. Image specs 1/200 sec @ f/4 and ISO 200 and 100mm focal length.
If you still want to go out shooting today and are looking or tips and inspirations, check out my free Learning Center.
Hope you had a great Sunday as well!

In a series of posts I will write about my experiences with wedding photography. This first post is about my preparations and shooting the formal wedding portraits.Continue reading “Off topic – Wedding Photography (1)”

Love was in the air, when our godchild married last weekend. And what an event it was for me, as I was the official wedding photographer, from shooting the formal portraits in the morning to documenting the emotions of the ceremony. From taking group shots to capturing the fun of the party. A whole day with a camera in my hand.Continue reading “Love was in the air”
I find it fitting that this week’s anniversary of mankind’s first landing on the moon coincides with a current lunar event, the partial eclipse on this past Tuesday. Not that I ever need a reason to point my camera up at the big silver dish in the sky. Looking for the man on the moon.Continue reading “Man on the moon”
