The magical ice caves of Iceland – Matej Kriz

Since the UEFA European Championship 2016 at latest, where Iceland’s team made the soccer event even a MUCH greater spectacle, winning fans from all the other nations, Iceland’s popularity as a travel destination has considerably increased. When talented Instagram photographers traveled to the far north as well and took pictures of the barren scenery, the ...

Scott Joseph Kelly is a former US astronaut. Spending 520 days in outer space, he’s the most experienced NASA astronaut. Now, after 20 years of work, he left NASA. So what can you do with so much time in outer space? Working, of course, but what else? Scott Kelly tweets like a world champion! His tweets ...

Robert Rose only takes his iPhone to Nepal

Here at Fotogenerell we mostly deal with advanced photography. What I mean by that isn’t only the technique of capturing and editing photos but gear as well. However, from time to time we look away from DSLRs and lenses and take a look at how established pro photographers circumvent any restrictions smartphones have and how ...

A little review of Istanbul with the Sigma 17-50 mm F2.8 EX DC OS HSM

Today I’d like to take you on a little review trip to Istanbul. In this impressive city I could spend some wonderful days about two years ago. Of course, the Blue Mosque and the Hagia Sophia in particular are incredible architectural masterpieces and rightly the centerpieces of Istanbul. I think I’ve got to tell nobody ...

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 ...

My “photographic dream” of Africa

Red soil, endless wilderness, breathtaking sunsets, amazing animals, freedom and adventures. All this and much more I can relate to my dream of Africa. As far as I remember I’ve always dreamed of exploring Africa. Of seeing the animals you usually watch in a zoo or – even more tragically – in a circus show ...

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 ...

Vacation in the mountains due to heat wave

Finally it’s here – the summer we’ve been yearning for a long time. The days are endless, the motivation and energies refreshed and the desire for ice-cold drinks at the water is huge. But after a few days of full urban heat which, as every year, spreads between the houses, I nicely accepted some vacation ...
