The first snow… but let’s stay warm inside!

Even for autumn, the past few weeks have been unusually warm: In mid-November it was 15°C in the streets and one could still see people wearing thin jackets instead of thick winter coats and wool caps. Eventually the Christmas decoration is installed, but the trees still have their colorful autumn leaves. However, out of the ...

Taking photos on the way to…

Are you in the habit of always taking your camera with you, regardless of whether you are on your way to work, running errands or going to the doctor? I almost never do it. The gear that I prefer to use doesn’t fall into the “always with you” category. A Sigma sd Quattro with a ...

Visiting a puppet theater

As you may have noticed in the past few weeks I’m more and more attracted to documentary photography. Following intriguing people and things and capturing big and little particularities interests me more and more. The ice-fisherman I could accompany one afternoon at temperatures far below zero degrees Celsius, the lovely ladies at the pastry store ...

The atmosphere of the golden hour

Anyone who has anything to do with photography cannot avoid the notion of the golden and the blue hour. The golden hour describes the period shortly after sunrise or shortly before sunset, in which the sunlight takes on an orange to reddish colour and is already very low. Long shadows appear and everything seems dreamy, ...

On board with the Sigma 24-70 mm F2.8 EX DG HSM

Hey guys, today it’s time again for another photo walk. This weekend I went downstream by ship from the wonderful city of Vienna to the nearest capital of another country. It was my first ride on a fast ferryboat and also my first visit to Bratislava. Since I knew somebody who works on the ferry, ...

Ice fishing with the SIGMA 50mm F1.4 DG HSM | Art

Hey guys, this weekend it was time again for some little adventure! As you may already know, I enjoy walking outside with my camera, the Canon EOS 5D Mark III, and exploring my surroundings. I stroll through snowy forests and meadows and try capturing the scenery with all its wonderful details. I also enjoy experimenting ...

First photo walk with the Sigma 135mm f1.8 Art

The Sigma 135mm f/1.8 Art is one of the longest telephoto prime lenses I have ever shot photos with. During this first photo walk with the new lens I had to take a couple of steps back a number of times, because I was to close and more than half of the motif was missing. ...

Wintry city scenes with the Sigma sd Quattro

Just like Tamara and Beatrice I’m also not a fan of wintry city motifs. The next day, and sometimes even within hours, the snow turns into dark sludge, which makes taking nice photos every difficult. Going out to shoot photos is only sensible on those days, when the snow has already melted and, with a ...

“In Vienna’s Prater the trees blossom again”

When you think of Vienna’s Prater as a non-local, first of all the Luna Park with the extraordinary carousels will come to your mind. You may almost forget that the entire huge area around, with its forests and the nature reserve, is also part of it. Since I’m particularly impressed by the Prater’s atmosphere in ...

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 ...
