Rest Day

Field Flowers

Field Flowers | 2017

I arrived back home from the Pacific Northwest last evening. I’m flying out for another 4 days / 4 countries trip tonight.

In between there is a good day of…doing nothing. Like lying in a green summer meadow full of flowers. Gazing into infinity.

Image specs are 1/500 sec @ f/5.6 and ISO 500. To get this kind of effects use a zoom lens at its far end of the focal range (in this case 150mm in m4/3, equivalent to 300mm in full frame). Focus on a flower behind the first layers of grass and flowers.

For more photography tips and inspirations visit my Learning Center.

Wish everyone a blessed and relaxed Sunday!

Nacht der Sinne 2017 Neumarkt Opf

1/100 sec @ f/3,2 and ISO 2000 – 20mm focal length

Saturday night we visited a street festival in Neumarkt, a town of 40.000 with a historic city center between Nuremberg and Regensburg. The event was called the “Night of the Senses”, and combined late night shopping (everything was open until 11pm) with many performances of bands and artists and ample opportunity for food and drinks. While my significant other thought shopping I brought along my Olympus OM-D E-M1 with the mZuiko 12-40mm F/2.8 Pro Zoom. For more photos of this event plus some explanations around my late night street photography continue after the jump…. (more…)
