Capturing Gesture

Waving Boy
1/640 sec | f/7.1 | ISO 1600 | 100 mm

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.

Good friends are like stars

Starry Night
20 sec | f/2.8 | ISO 3200 | 7mm

“Good friends are like stars, you don’t always see them, but you know they’re always there”, an old saying goes.

A Milky Way shot to open the photography year 2020. Taken with the Olympus OM-D E-M1 and the mZuiko 7-14mm F/2.8. Image specs 20 sec (camera on a tripod) @ f/2.8 , ISO 3200 and 7mm focal length.

Postprocessing of the RAW in Lightroom Classic – mainly using haze reduction and increasing clarity in parts of the Milky Way, plus some overall sharpness masking and noise reduction.

Wish you a great Thursday!

Of course travel photography has played a major for me also in 2019. While the trips for the job that pays the bills have been significantly reduced from 2018, I still had the opportunity for some travels to my beloved Pacific Northwest, and I added a trip to Udaipur, India, late in the year. Private trips had The Significant Other and myself travel, among other short visits to our neighboring countries, to Estonia, Italy and Jordan. And we had our usual share of trips around Germany. So here are a few of my fav travel images from 2019….

All is calm, all is bright

Boccadasse Dreams

The second day of Christmas. Downtime. All is calm, all is bright. In Pajamas all day. Watching TV documentaries. Couch sleeping (a lot). Playing with some photographs taken during the year, like this night shot from Boccadasse, Genoa. Just imagining, how the little port would look without light pollution.

If you think about picking up a camera yourself and are still looking for inspirations what to photography, check out my free Learning Center.

I hope your are all having a fantastic Christmas as well.

Special Christmas Market

Kuchelbauer Weihnachtsmarkt
1/5 sec | f/4 | ISO 1600 | 18 mm

It is really fun, being home all December (which hasn’t happened the past 5 years) and having time to explore the various Christmas markets of our area, enjoy time with friends and family and really get into the holiday spirit. Together with good friends, The Significant Other and myself today traveled to Abensberg (a small town about 100km south of Nuremberg) to visit a special Christmas market.

Christmas Romance

Romantic Christmas
1/60 sec | f/1.8 | ISO 1600

After yesterdays moody Christmas tree image I felt the need to post some real Nuremberg Christmas romance. It shows the Christmas tree on historic Tiergärtnertorplatz, once more with the birth house of Renaissance Super Star Albrecht Dürer in the background. Definitely one of the more romantic views of my city.
