When Friday night the wheels of my KLM flight from Manchester via Amsterdam back to Nuremberg kissed the asphalt of the runway of my hometown’s airport, another crazy work week came to an end. And, fingers crossed, this should have been the last air travel of this year. Coincidentally, Friday night this year’s Christmas season kicked off with the grand opening of Nuremberg’s famous Christkindlesmarkt. While I arrived much too late to make it to the opening ceremony last night, this evening I grabbed my camera and the Significant Other and headed to one of the many local Christmas markets for our start into the Season of Lights.Continue reading “Season of Lights”
Sometimes you have to be quick. Street scenes are there for a second, then gone forever. No time to fiddle with camera settings. My advice for you: Shoot in P-Mode, when your are not deliberately photographing a certain subject and have ample time to adjust composition and settings.Continue reading “Shoot in P-Mode and be prepared”
When shooting street photography, I’m always on the look for gesture. Gesture adds interest to images. Don’t just capture people walking with arms hanging at their sides or with expressionless faces.Continue reading “Look for Gesture”
During last week’s stay in Udaipur I also took the opportunity to go for a 15 minute quick stroll through the old city center. Leaving the PEN-F in my bag in the office, I just took my iPhone 8plus along for the walk. Hoping to make some street portraits.Continue reading “Udaipur Street Portraits”
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”
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!
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”
No, this is not me. But this is how the life of me (the aspiring photographer) has been the past two weeks. Almost literally.Continue reading “Man at work”
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”
