Sometimes it is important to revisit your work. This image from The Significant Other climbing up the staircase of Nuremberg’s Schauspielhaus I posted already back in early 2019. While putting together our photographic yearbook of 2019, I was looking again at this photograph I took with my iPhone, and it still is one my fav images from last January.Continue reading “Revisit your work”
As I have written many times on this blog, capturing gesture is what makes a street photograph. Like the wave of this boy standing next to a Coke machine in a village in Jordan. I was photographing him out of a moving bus – hence the slightly degraded image quality, because of me shooting at an angle through the bus window.Continue reading “Capturing Gesture”
The last day of 2019 is upon us, and so the last episode of my five-part series looking back at my photographic ventures during the past year. And as the “Streets of Nuremberg” are principally a street photography blog, here are my fav street images of 2019…Continue reading “My photographic journey through 2019 (5)”
We’re almost there, Christmas is nearly upon us. Together with The Significant Other, Big Boy and Big Girl plus the grand parents I headed downtown for a last visit to the market. A quite traditional visit, as every year on the last evening before Christmas (remember, we Germans celebrate on the 24th), the wife and her trombone choir perform on the stage in front of the Church of our Lady at Nuremberg’s Christkindlesmarkt.Continue reading “Last visit to the market”
Who says that Christmas photographs have to be all colorful and bright? Here is my version of a moody Christmas tree. Taken on the walls of the Imperial Castle Nuremberg with my Olympus PEN-F and the mZuiko 25mm F/1.8.
Image specs 1/60 sec @ f/1.8 and ISO 1600. Heavily desaturated (it is not a B&W conversion) in Lightroom Classic. I also introduced some grain and burned (brightened) the heavy rain clouds around the tree.
I felt like being moody today.

Have a great Monday!
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”
