The Lofoten Islands in Northern Norway are one of my favorite places in Europe. My last three trips to the Lofoten were all winter trips. Since I also wanted to have some summer images in my portfolio I decided to book some flights from Munich to Leknes and spend a long weekend there.
The rather cryptic title of this blog post probably needs some explanation. LENR stands for Long Exposure Noise Reduction. Nearly all current digital cameras offer this feature, sometimes you can switch it off and sometimes not.
I really like the Zeiss 2.0/135mm Apo Sonnar. It’s the technically most perfect lens I’ve ever owned and tested. And last year in Namibia I’ve learned that 135mm can be a great landscape lens. The Zeiss 135 has just one disadvantage: it’s rather big and heavy. Especially on the small Sony A7RII it feels unbalanced in my opinion.
As I wrote in my last Iceland blog post, I’m changing my photography equipment again. This time from a Nikon D800E DSLR kit to a Sony A7RII mirrorless kit. My main motivation for this switch is to reduce size and weight while maintaining the high image quality of the Nikon D800E.
In December/January I spent two weeks in Iceland. It was my fifth trip to Iceland and my second winter trip. Contrary to my last winter experience together with Philippe in 2014, where we had lots of sunshine and mild temperatures, this time the weather was really extreme.
Calvendo the publishing company of my print-on-demand-calendars has released an interview with me. You can find it here: http://blog.calvendo.de/interview-boris-buschardt/2016/01/
Since it is available only in German I will give you a free translation here on my blog:
Last week I went on a short business trip to Tokyo. On one evening I had a few hours of spare time and decided to explore the famous Shibuya Crossing.
A couple of weeks ago I got an email from National Geographic España whether they could use some of my Patagonia images for their travel magazine. Ok, it’s only NG España and only their travel magazine but it’s still cool to be contacted by National Geographic.
In 2011 we visited Vancouver Island together with the Olympic NP for the first time. Sadly we had only about one week on the island and could only explore the southeastern part. Therefore we decided to return this summer vacation. After a direct flight from Frankfurt to Vancouver with Condor we went straight to Vancouver Island.
I’ve seen many beautiful images of Namibia on the internet and was always interested in a visit of this place but somehow it never worked out. This year I decided that it’s time for a short trip to Namibia to get a personal first impression of this country.
