In January and June we spent altogether 4 weeks in different areas of Thailand. Our first destination was Krabi. We arrived there with a rental car from Phuket.
I’m often asked questions like “How do you get the amazing details in every shot?”. There is no magic involved but following a couple of guidelines will definitely help to improve the perceived sharpness of images.
I’ve finally managed to publish two POD coffee table books, one about temperate rainforests and one about Iceland. They are available both at Blurb. You can find more information about the books and direct links to Blurb on my Books page.
Last summer I was traveling for the sixth time to Iceland. Besides that, I really love this island my main reason for another trip was my long-term project of making a coffee table book of Iceland.
If you take the ferry from Denmark to Iceland you get a 3-day stop-over in the Faroe Islands which are located north of Scotland and about halfway between Denmark and Iceland.
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.
