Macro, green and cars with the DP3M

Previous Saturday, the sun dared to come out for a few hours. I used the time for taking some macro shots with the DP3m. Sometimes it rained more, sometimes less. When at my wits’ end, people tend to come up with unusual ideas, at least that’s the case with me. Since I already liked the ...


More topical than ever: David Maisel’s The Lake Project and The Mining Project

While I took a break from reporting on the record-breaking flood in Austria and my home country, I stumbled across two projects by David Maisel as if determined by fate. “The Mining Project” as well as “The Lake Project” both deal with the same topic: human-induced environmental destruction. © David Maisel © David Maisel From Maisel’s favourite ...


Despite the rain I dared to venture out with the DP3m

Our dear sun took some time off, but the urge to go outside for a photo bout with my new toy was too strong. 🙂 As expected, no photogenic motives whatsoever came my way in such weather. Never mind, it was still fun. 🙂 You can view additional DP3m photos on my Pinterest account or Flickr set.


DP3 Merrill: I had to strike again! :-)

Waiting for the cash-back bank transfer, I am holding the DP3M in my hands and cheerfully taking photos. Only the weather, which currently goes haywire, spoils the party. After the hot spell of past weeks, it’s raining cats and dogs at the moment. This is why I could only take some sample pictures inside my ...


Tip: Tim Tadder’s Water Wigs

Actually, I am not a big fan of high speed photography. If, however, we are talking of balloons filled with water falling and bursting on people’s heads, I am happy to make an exception and view the photos ;). Even though „Water Wigs“ came into being a year ago and immediately caused a hype throughout ...



The nice thing about compact cameras is the easy way of taking them anywhere you want. If I only had the SD1, I would take far less pictures. I only take the “big” one with me when I am really planning on taking some pictures. With the DP2M that’s different, it practically accompanies me wherever ...


DP2m at closest focusing distance

Over the past couple of days, I played around a bit with the DP2m close-up-range in order to find out what I can get out of a camera in this respect. I predominantly used aperture f2.8 and manual focus at it. Rather than turning around the lens ring, I left the focus at 28cm (DP2m’s ...


9600km Panorama from space: NASA’s Landsat Data Continuity Mission

Insanely giant gigapixel panoramas are old hat by now. Pretty much any bigger city has already been photographed in this manner. In order to impress the common beholder, one needs to exceed the performance of other teams by far, and what arises more readily than shooting a 9600 times 190km big stripe on earth from ...


The invisible Liu Bolin

I once was lucky enough to visit one of his photo exhibitions. On large-formatted canvas, Liu Bolin, also known as the invisible Chinese, was even harder to make out than had already been the case with his tiny internet-pictures. He literally merges with carefully selected sceneries, be it Chinese propaganda posters, supermarket shelves, rivers or ...


Pictures, once again

After almost an entire week, it is high time for me to post a few new pictures. Work, nice weather and some minor technical issues kept me from uploading new content. As is often the case with me, either cute four-legged friends or delicious dainties cross my camera’s way. I hope you enjoy these little ...
