Motifs from neighbour’s garden

As is well known the grass is always greener on the other side. In my case it’s not the grass, but rather the interesting photo motifs that every so often make me look jealously in the direction of my neighbour’s garden. 🙂 Lush vegetation, all kinds of insects and pets racing around – my neighbour, ...

Silly Mistake: High-ISO by Day!

I was so happy on my last photo tour: the light was great, it was warm and I wasn’t short of good subjects. “Couldn’t have been any better”, I thought when I came home. But soon after I had a look at the photos on my PC and discovered that I shot all of them ...

The 35mm f1.4 Art is extremely sharp!

I could hardly wait for the last weekend, to finally have the time for shooting some photos with the 35/1.4 Art. I am slightly spoiled by the DP2M and love the lens of this camera, but the 35/1.4 A is so much more fun because of its extremely high sharpness at open aperture. I haven’t ...

The Last Photos Before it Began Snowing

New Photos with the 17-70 C

This time, it took me very long to shoot some presentable photos. Partly, this is because of hibernal sloth, but partly also because of the numerous Serbian holidays. Did you know that Serbia celebrates its New Year twice? That’s right! The “international New Year” as we all know it, and the “Serbian New Year” in ...

My preliminary Conclusion for the Sigma 17-70mm f/2.8-4

I didn’t have the opportunity of testing the wide-angle range. It just wasn’t to be. Either I didn’t’ find the time to take a tripod with me to shoot stopped down landscapes and buildings, or it was too cloudy or too cold to stay outside for a longer period of time. This is why I ...

Swans and Dogs

My second last photo session was rather macro-based due to the bad weather and miserable light. I think that “flat” and low-contrast light is best suited for macros. Here, high contrast is not desirable. But if I want to take photos of animals, I usually wait until the sun shows up, so that the colors ...

Black and White

Some photographers are of the opinion that good light is crucial. Others, on the other hand, hold that it is depending on the subject whether a photo is perceived as boring or great. Whatever is most important, in this dark time of year I most of all miss light, no matter if it’s good or ...
