Today I took my camera and R72 infrared filter with me on a walk in the Attersee area in Upper Austria and was able to find some picturesque spots. When adding the IR-filter, the lush green colors of the foliage appeared bright white against a black sky on this clear and sunny day, even without modifying my camera for IR-photography. All images were taken handheld with ISO values in the range of 200 to […]
I would like to share some older photos on slide film that I had already scanned and just re-discovered.. I took these photos already in 2010 in Tromsø, Norway (wow… time flies) and I want to start a series of posts with impression of cities I have visited. I will tag these posts under the ‘cityscapes’ category – as done with some images from Copenhagen already. So, one of my first destination for an extended […]
During my recent trip to Gothenburg, I visited the southern archipelago and made a kayaking trip around Vrångö including some stops on smaller islands. It has been great to paddle across the open sea and finding some bays to explore on these last exceptionally beautiful and sunny days. The picture was taken with my E-M5II and 12mm lens (which was stowed away ‘under deck’ in a dry bag during the tour which kept it perfectly […]
The surface of the moon – as photographed today in the afternoon with a new lens which I recently bought on ebay and just received two days ago: an MTO-11CA from the russian manufacturer LZOS (built somewhen around 1992). This mirror lens has a focal length of 1m (!) and for this image I used an additional 2x teleconverter on my OM-D E-M5II to see how close I can get. In order to reduce the atmospheric […]
Following my previous post where I combined some fruits and vegetables with colorful backgrounds, I used the weekend to play around with some of the contents of my shopping bag once more.. For the above images, I again used a quite simple lighting setup consisting of a 400W halogen flood light + diffuser and reflector on opposite sides. I am quite satisfied with the results of this cheap setup – the only downside is the flood […]
Some neon light installations displayed in the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam – shot again with my E-M5II and 12mm lens.
