New Photo: Utah’s Mountain Walks

New Photo: Utah’s Mountain Walks It took sooooo many years before I managed to get over to Utah… thinking back to about a year ago, I remember the ice cold water that run through the mountains there. This place here is close to a place called the Kanarra falls – you can only reach it if you walk a good 30 min through the freezing water. It was absolutely worth it though, the images one can take there are awesome. And, having a beer at a fire in the evening is even more rewarding then, hehe.

New Photo: The Long Coast

New Photo: The Long Coast I love the Irish coast line! Living on the island, I spend a good amount of time traveling around to see what I can find. This picture is from a place called the rope bridge in northern Ireland (or England? You know what I mean!) Once you defeat the fear and cross a free hanging rope bridge, you have an amazing view on the coast there. The grass in the foreground is what Ireland is most known for (at least from what I have heard) – most part of the island is actually without trees…

New Photo: Do not do it…

daily photo blog portrait

New Photo: Do not do it… I am not one to take pictures of people very often, mostly because I do have the feeling that I would annoy them. Having said that, most people are actually quite Ok with it! This lady here was part of a Photo Walk in Vienna as well as in Berlin, and she gave me the ‘You better do not take a photo of me’ look – but in the end, she had no trouble with it whatsoever. I promised myself I would take pics of people more often, and I am planning on keeping this…

New Photo: My Favourite Cameras!

New Photo: My Favourite Cameras! I just love Sony cameras! This one was a super fast shot during a Photowalk in Berlin earlier this year. The total value of the gear must have exceeded 40k, hehe. And that is excluding all the tripods and the filters and all that stuff… But at least photo walks present the perfect chance to see all the gear that is out there and get hands-on experience with it! Meeting all the people that are experts in the specific camera they are using is awesome, too, there is so much to learn!

How to Edit Landscape Images in Photoshop – Example: Utah’s Vast Nothingness | Photoshop Tutorial

How to Edit Landscape Images in Photoshop – Example: Utah’s Vast Nothingness | Photoshop Tutorial Welcome back! You might remember that I lived in Utah for a little bit, where I used every chance I got to go out and admire the landscape. This time, I want to share an image with you that crept me out a little – While walking through the countryside (no particular place), I found this skeleton in the middle of nowhere. What fascinated me, was the full scene: just bushes and grass, dead stone, and these bones. I took a shot and got out…

How to Create a Sunset in Photoshop – Example: Northern Ireland | Photoshop Tutorial

how to create a sunset in photoshop beginner tutorial

How to Create a Sunset in Photoshop – Example: Northern Ireland | Photoshop Tutorial Welcome back! I am sure many of you have been in the same situation – the right place at the wrong time. What I mean is, that you find yourself in a great spot but it is neither sunset nor sunrise and the weather makes the whole scene dull. This happens to me all the time, sometimes because I am with friends that want to keep going, and sometimes because there are other places I would rather be during sunset/rise. In any case, this is why…

Why Photowalks are AMAZING | In London with Trey Ratcliff

Why Photowalks are AMAZING | In London with Trey Ratcliff Welcome back! Today, I am just tuning in for a moment to share my experiences from the Photowalk I had in London with Trey Ratcliff recently! In the end, we managed to gather about 100-120 people for the walk which is absolutely amazing! When it comes to networking as a Photographer, I always see people being a little shy to actively promote their photos and to ask other people to have a look at their work. I am a strong believer, that there is no reason at all to be…
