The 2012 Gallery is online

About the 2012 Gallery When photographing and organizing my images, I have my own way to do that. I almost never look at the images I shot at the same day on the PC. The experiences of that day are still alive and if I’d do, I would probably throw away many files that are…

a trip to the other side

Some weeks ago I made a series of images in my hometown Magdeburg. All of them have been shot in the city park. Through infrared we are able to see the world in a view that simply doesn’t exist for our eyes. Let me take you…

Google Plus Euro Photowalk, neue Filter und Ausstellung

Mein letzter Blogeintrag ist schon mehr als drei Wochen her, nicht weil ich zu faul bin, sondern weil ich im Moment gut zu tun habe. Wie ich bereits geschrieben habe, konzentriere ich mich dieses Jahr sehr auf Schwarz-Weiß Fotografie. So auch auf dem Google Plus Euro Photowalk in Berlin. Bevor ich dorthin fuhr, kannte ich…

Small Town Stories

Finally I had the time to get under the surface of my film scans. I didn’t find any photo that touched me in the 35mm images. I also didn’t like any of the middle format color images. The black and white mf stuff was more interesting. The scans didn’t offer much room for postprocessing, but…

Portrait Workshop mit Carsten Stolze

Recht schnell wurde klar, dass Landschaft und Architektur mein Ding sind. Ab und an ist es aber gut, sich dazu zu zwingen, außerhalb der gewohnten Umgebung zu agieren. Also habe ich diesen Portrait…

Skateshooting with Andreas Thiele

Two weeks ago I did a photo shooting with the local skateboarder Andreas Thiele. I met Andreas some years ago when I tryed out my first sports photos. Since then, I visited many of the local skateboarding contests. When I gave him a message, he instantly agreed and already had two locations in mind. We…

The Mindful Eye

When I started photography, one website has educted me like no other. It was the “RadiantVista”. Three photographers showed their techniques, critiqued images and shared their thoughts about photography. Craig Tanner picked an image from the viewers of RV and said something about the feeling, colors and composition. Then he also gave tips how to…
