Autumn portraits

A couple of days ago I took you to meadows covered by the mist on a rainy, murky walk through the forest. I showed you all the wonderful facets this season offers. However, on my long walk my focus was not only nature itself. I was accompanied by a friend who also posed as a ...

The gray autumn is back

It feels as if autumn has just arrived and its most beautiful aspects, the colorful leaves hanging on the trees, the warm sun and the wonderful soft autumn light have gone way too soon. A couple of days ago, as I looked out of my window, I realized that this part of the season will ...

Sigma 24 mm F1.4 DG HSM

Hey guys, Today I want to present you a new lens from my collection. Like the 35mm and the 50mm lenses, the 24mm F1.4 DG HSM is also part of Sigma’s “Art” series. Launched in 2012 at the Photokina, this product series excels with particularly high quality fixed focal lengths. The light-intense wide angle lens ...

Transylvania

Hey guys, Today I want to take you on a somewhat different photo walk. As much as I love digital photography, every now and then I also feel like leaving my heavy Canon 5D Mark III at home and exploring the world with an analogue camera. Such cameras are light, handy and the feeling of ...

Analogue in Havanna

Today I also want to take you to another analogue adventure! There are cities and countries screaming for ANALOGUE in my eyes. And sometimes you just have to listen to that scream.  Havana was such a city for me, or to be more exact, Cuba was in general – the city or the country where ...

First images taken with my Sigma SD Quattro

Yes, you read that right, my Sigma SD Quattro has arrived and I’ve already had a chance to take some photos with Sigma’s very first “EVIL”. It’s too early to go into everything that was changed or improved in comparison with the SD1 Merrill. We are talking about a change of concept, from a DSLR ...

SIGMA 24-70mm F2,8 DG OS HSM vs. SIGMA 24-105mm F4 DG OS HSM | Art

Hey guys, Today I want to test two of the most popular standard zoom lenses with and for you by comparing them with each other. Both are real universal talents and both suitable for studio photography as well as for documentary and travel photography. Due to their light intensity of 2.8 or 4, respectively, it’s ...

From a bird’s eye view over a creative table

Taking pictures of food with your smartphone, finding the right position for your coffee or arranging flowers nicely – that’s how you best prepare the well-known “flat lays” for taking a perfect shot from above. So today I’d like to take you on a tour through the creation of nicely arranged flat lays. But what ...

People change. PLACES AS WELL.

I’m sure everyone of you knows that feeling. Those places from our childhood we used to visit once or perhaps more often and of which we have a very clear picture in our minds. An image so clear as if it had been yesterday. Maybe there was that incredibly beautiful spot by the river one ...

Photo series: Riding an Old-timer through Havana

Havana, a city where time has stood still for the last 60 years and which has been left to itself. Or at least it seems like that! 😉 A mix of colored colonial-style houses, la Habana, the old city filled with little abandoned lanes, stucco-ornamented buildings on every side and impressive street art at every ...
