Ocean Ramsey

Sharks count among the creatures which most people are scared of. I’m probably not very wrong when I blame a very popular Hollywood movie for this phenomenon. Ocean Ramsey also sees it this way and aims to put the bad reputations sharks have and all the panic, which mainly movies like “Jaws” have caused, in ...

The atmosphere of the golden hour

Anyone who has anything to do with photography cannot avoid the notion of the golden and the blue hour. The golden hour describes the period shortly after sunrise or shortly before sunset, in which the sunlight takes on an orange to reddish colour and is already very low. Long shadows appear and everything seems dreamy, ...

Sharpness comparison: Sigma 100-400mm vs 135mm F1.8 Art

Depending on how scrupulously one goes about things, a sharpness comparison of two lenses can end up being quite a hassle. One could compare the sharpness at multiple distances. One could, even when comparing a prime lens to a zoom, not only shoot at the same aperture but shoot photos with the prime at those ...

Shooting landscapes and architecture with a telephoto zoom?

I’m hardly what one would consider a landscape or an architecture photographer. I’m more interested in animals, insects, plants, abstract motifs and “detail” (I’m not sure how to better describe that particular type of subject). However, when I head out with the intention of shooting landscapes and architecture, I prefer to take a wide-angle lens ...

Picture vs. life? Volcano tourism on Hawaii

The pictures traveled around the world. At present Hawaii has been struck by one of the strongest volcano eruptions for decades. Although Hawaiians have always lived with their volcanoes and been aware of the risks and although most inhabitants have already experienced several eruptions, the situation now is quite different. The Kilauea (translation “the spewing ...

Surrealism – in photography as well?

We’re all familiar with names like Salvador Dalí, Max Ernst or René Magritte and without thinking we categorize them as surrealism in art. We’ve often seen paintings like “The Persistence of Memory”, “Celebes” or “The Son of the Man” and these impressive works are stuck in our minds (or at least in my mind). Melting ...
