I like to give me those little photographic self assignments, to keep my creative juices flowing. Like when I was enjoying a Pacific sunset at Oregon’s Cannon Beach the other day. When I was capturing beach emotions.Continue reading “Beach emotions”
Beach-tennis, volleyball, frisbee – these are the normal games you see everyone playing at the waterline on a hot beach day. But there was also another hot game played to the sound of the waves….Continue reading “Hot Game”
Sure enough we spend ample time at the beach, during our Ligurian vacation. And this is always a good opportunity to put my rugged Olympus TG-4 camera to action. Because who says you can shoot street photography only on terra firma? Street? Beach! Sea!Continue reading “Street? Beach!”
During our recent visit to the Estonian capital Tallinn we also passed across Freedom Square, which features the Cross of Liberty and the Monument to the War of Independence. The 23.5 meters tall pillar made of 143 glass plates commemorates all those who have for freedom in the Estonian war of independence. While nothing particularly spectacular, it was still worth a documentary shot to be part of my Tallinn travel photos. Let me show you the contact sheet with my shots of Freedom Square.Continue reading “Contact Sheet (1)”
The “Streets of Nuremberg” are visiting the Estonian Capital Tallinn. A beautiful city full of history and creativity. Where now, during the “white nights”, it never gets fully dark, and the sun is below the horizon from only 10:36 pm until 4:05 am. I took the title image of Tallinn’s famous medieval towers shortly after midnight. Crazy , isn’t it?Continue reading “Hello from Tallinn”
“Instant Inspiration” is my series for you if you look for something to overcome “Photographer’s Block” or simply want to shoot something that you have never tried, or at least not recently. With episode 30 (!!) I want to inspire you to go looking for those different kind of face….Continue reading “Instant Inspiration (30) – Look for that different face”
At the end of yesterday’s photography coaching session we were also doing some street shooting where I captured this image that I really like for its high contrast, the shadow separating the two faces and the look I drew.
Live is in overdrive right now, between the job that pays the bills, a family function today and plenty of photography related activities: The two Instagram walks this week, the photo coaching session yesterday and a photo shooting session next weekend (I get to try my hands at a real model). Hardly time to blog or even do some editing or postprocessing.
But live could be worse – it could be boring 🙂
Have great Sunday!
Street Photography is standing on a street corner with a view. Camera ready. Waiting what’s going to happen. Watching the stories and faces of the street. I took four street photographs within a couple of minutes, standing at the same corner.Continue reading “Corner with a view”
Haven’t posted a street portrait in a while, which is a pity, because making portraits of strangers and interacting with them is the most fun part of Street Photography.Continue reading “Dimitri”
