REVIEW SIGMA 85mm F1.4 DG HSM Art

You’ve certainly noticed that I’m a big fan of Sigma’s Art series! My all-round lens, which I don’t want to miss, is the SIGMA 24-70mm F2.8 DG OS HSM | Art. But also the classical lens, a normal focal length for full-frame cameras, the 50mm F1.4 DG HSM | Art, has become a faithful companion that never lets me ...

Through the wind and the rain

While other people enjoy spending their summer vacation in deckchairs on warm and sunny beaches with a cool refreshing drink and a book in their hands, this year I decided to do the opposite. This year my plans took me to Iceland, a destination that’s been on my mind for a very long time. Instead ...

Shadow plays – Vincent Bal

I've probably mentioned it a hundred times by now, but I just have to stress it again and again, I'm rarely as enthusiastic about something as about people who conquer the world with creative photo ideas. Or, at least become successful with it. 😉 My latest discovery is Vincent Bal. Many of you will probably ...

“The Eggs-hibit” – Michele Baldini and his creative egg artworks.

Today I have something out of the category: "You can be successful with everything" for you again. Michele Baldini is an artist and medical student. His canvas is a pan and his tools are eggs.

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.

“My art is not an answer, it is a question.” Gottfried Helnwein

Today I want to talk about an artist whom most of you know for sure: Gottfried Helnwein. This artist is known around the world for his hyper-real images which, even when taking a closer look at them, don’t look much different from photographs and in which he mainly deals with issues like pain and violence. ...

Snow Art by Simon Beck

Today I’ve got another photographer for you, that clearly fits the “inspiring and creative photography ideas” category I love so much. Simon Beck could be called a big dimension snow artist, extreme endurance athlete and photographer. He graduated in Engineering from Oxford University but quit is office job to become a cartographer. On a skiing ...

Visiting the Nonseum

Today I’d like to take you to a museum of another kind: the Nonseum! Sounds funny – and it is, in the best possible way! Elevation simulators for folks living in the lowlands, or a sandwich box for veal sausages, a historic collection of buttons with Napoleon’s precious button hole, or a collection of socks ...
