Monochrome Castle

The blazing heat continues across Germany. Photographers complain about the harsh light and mute colors, especially during the day. But as the saying goes, when life gives you lemons, grab salt and tequila. Episode 31 of my “Instant Inspirations” talks about high contrast monochrome photographs.

A Pacific Sunset

Pacific Sunset
Pacific Sunset | Oregon | 2017

I’m back in Portland after a great weekend on the Oregon coast. I took too many photos that will take a few days to sort through and post-process. So like yesterday I show you once more the final image of the day, a sunset scene near Lincoln City. Isn’t this what a drive along the great ocean is all about?

In my free Learning Center is a post how to shoot silhouettes, check it out!

Image was taken with the Olympus OM-D E-M1 and the mZuiko 40-150mm F/2.8 Pro Zoom. Image specs 1/2000 sec @ f/9 and ISO 200, 90mm focal length.

I wish all of you a great week.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Graceful


Who says Street Photography can’t produce graceful images?  This is my entry for this week’s Weekly Photo Challenge “graceful” .

I took this photo of the backlit silhouette of a girl gracefully running in front of a fountain with gloomy thunderstorm clouds overhead in Munich.  The camera I used was my Ricoh GR II, image details are 1/400 sec, f/7,1 @ ISO 160.  The Ricoh has a fixed lens with 18mm focal length (equals 28mm in full frame).

Have a great weekend!
