My four-legged Neighbors

For the most of you it’s nothing new that a large part of my motives und uploads are cats and dogs. But you don’t know, that almost all of those four-legged friends live in my neighborhood. It is really unusual not coming across with a new furry neighbor when I take a step outside. In ...

Overexposure Paranoia with the DP2 Quattro

Before you can shoot technically good photos with a new camera, you first have to familiarize yourself with it. You should follow your own instinct instead of listening to other people’s opinions. I made the mistake of relying too much on reviews – especially on the allegations of the Quattro having more dynamic range in ...

One shouldn’t underestimate compact cameras

Unexperienced photo lovers tend to tremendously underestimate any camera smaller than a (D)SLR. The photo gadget has to be huge, offer vast expandability and have at least a good dozen buttons and dials. Old hands know that it is the photographer who takes the picture and have a more pragmatic way of thinking about equipment. ...

No High-ISO this time ;)

…at least I didn’t accidentally use high sensitivities where ISO100 is sufficient. 😉 Some photos were shot at ISO800, but those were light conditions where f/1.4 and High-ISO was absolutely necessary. Paranoid as the lapse during my last photo tour made me, I double-checked the camera settings before I took a single photo. Just in case. ...

More Black-and-White Photos!

Again, I was on the road late afternoon and evening, but this time I took the SD1 Merrill with me instead of the two DPMs. The lens of my choice was the 30mm f/1.4 Art, which practically replaced my darling EX. I have edited the high-ISO shots again according to the here described method. In ...

A little Bit of Everything

Lately, I only took my compact cameras with me, the DP2M and the DP3M. As chance would have it, very different subjects popped up in front of my camera. Everything from dogs and cats, to macros with the Marumi achromatic lens and light effects to high-ISO-shots is included. As it currently looks light-wise, I will ...

My most-viewed Photos

Time flies so incredibly fast. It is almost a year ago that I immigrated to Serbia, but it feels as if it was only yesterday. Not only did I make many new friends, learn a new language (more or less well 😉 ) adapt to a new profession, environment and culture during this time, but ...

Tip: Jessica Trinh’s Dog Photography

Jessica Trinh is one of those photographers who show great talent and achieve fame at a young age. At only 13 she began taking photographs that would make many an „old hand“ envious. Five years later, her photo stream is full of wonderful, heart-warming dog photos. Her go-to motifs are her two four-legged companions, the ...

Light and Animals

Sometimes light can be so beautiful that as a photographer you can’t help but shoot a few photos just to see how the scene looks in a photo. A further motif I find especially interesting are the many street animals here in Serbia. On a daily basis, stray dogs and cats cross my path. Some ...

Cats again!?

Yes, but what can you do when they offer so many good motifs? Most people seem to love cat pictures. One of my most viewed photos is that of four cuddled-up cats. 🙂 Dogs appear to be less interesting, except when they’re playing, but for this you would need a different lens than the Sigma ...
