da ich gern mit der Kamera in der Natur unterwegs bin, soll 2015 ein fotografisches Outdoor-und-Wildlife-Jahr werden.
Thüringen ist facettenreich und hat einzigartige Motive zu bieten, die entdeckt werden wollen. Wer auch Spaß an derartigen Foto-Trips hat, ist herzlich eingeladen mitzukommen. Fotoevents dauern 2 bis 3 Stunden. Fototrails sind Halb- oder Ganztagestouren.
Wenn alles klappt, werde ich im August meine Freunde von DBC in Griechenland besuchen, um Delphine zu beobachten. Wer daran interessiert ist, kann gerne eine Expedition auf der DBC-Website buchen. Absolut empfehlenswert!
Euch einen schönen 1. Advent. ;-)

am Wochenende scheint die Sonne und wer noch nichts vor hat, dem kann ich einen Fototrip zum Kyffhäuser wärmstens empfehlen. Details zur Tour könnt ihr als pdf-Datei unter folgendem Link downloaden.
Allen, die sich tatsächlich auf den Weg machen, wünsche ich viel Spaß und gutes Licht. Wanderkarte und Verpflegung nicht vergessen!

A couple of days ago, i had the idea to undertake longer photo walks through Thuringias nature. I was on a 15km-trip yesterday and it was great! The weather god was in a super mood and fortunately i (nearly) did not get lost in the forest.
Stay tuned, if you are interested in a more detailed tour description, which will follow soon.

Backlit scenes are fantastic but a bit tricky. They nearly always lead to underexposure of the main subject. Fortunately nobody has to sit in the darkroom anymore, surrounded by toxic chemicals, nearly driven mad by exposure errors. Just enter the amazing world of Lightroom, adjust some exposure sliders and enjoy the advantages of the digital age while having a coffee. Yum! ;-)
Special thanks to Petra.

Kuchels Warte is an old fortification tower, that belongs to the Zerbster Town Wall. i´ve taken this picture during an e-bike-trip (which was fun) around the 4,2 km long ancient wall. The mighty round tower, totally immerged in the rays of warm evening light, appeared especially beautiful.

Although at first glance silhouette photographs appear somewhat antiquated, almost kitsch, they draw me over and over again into their spell. This one was taken last summer with an Olympus OM-D EM-10.
The exposure was set by pointing to the bright parts of the sky but not directly into the sun. At the OM-D the exposure value can be locked by pressing the Fn1 button. The focus was adjusted separately to one of the persons in front.
Before actually taking the photo, it is useful to check the brightness of highlights and shadows by using the live view.
Enjoy the light!

Hi fotomaniacs ;-),
guess where this picture was taken.
The Plitvice Lakes in Croatia are the perfect place to be at a sunny autumn day. The pretty indian summer like colors are just overwhelming. However, when i was there, no sun appeared. It was a rainy, foggy day with poor light conditions. Just perfect to obtain waterfalls, that look like milk. With the aperture set to 22 it was possible to reach an exposure time of 1 sec even without a ND-filter. Of course a tripod was necessary. The camera was triggered by the self-timer to prevent shaking.
Keep on shooting!

My time as assistant at DBC is over now. The eventful days in Galaxidi just flown by. Over all i´ve taken 1158(!) photographs. Some late-night-editing-sessions where necessary to obtain a reasonable number. It´s done now! 85 images are left, which i really like, including some beautiful pictures of dolphins. However, i decided not to post them on my blog, because the (virtual) home of the dolphins is here:
Without the expertise of Gio and Silvia, i could not have taken a single good dolphin shot. Thank you so much for being patient with me and explaining the „Non-1/1000-rule“. ;-) We spent an amazing time together, facing a reality, that was like a dream.
See you next summer!
