Today I made an infrared picture with the Nikon D80, Nikkor 16-85 and the Hoya R72 filter. It is rather something for spring and summer, but with subsequent retro-style conversion to Lightroom, it can also be used in winter.
Difficult to photograph. You stand very close to it and even with a 24mm TS-lens it is not enough to put the camera in balance on the tripod. An attempt with 18mm fails almost as well. The tripod head has to be moved out of balance or it is not possible without cutting off the […]
Early this morning in Balje. Light frost and hardly any wind. Although the sunrise cannot directly be seen from the position I stood, even in winter; a great sky above the lighthouse showed up. The colors in the image above have been slightly reduced in the post-production, they were a little more blatant in nature. […]
Here are two views of the Kaiser-Wilhelm-Brücke in Wilhelmshaven from yesterday evening. Both images were done with the D850 and the Sigma 24-105f/4 Art using a 1.8 ND-Filter.
One of the most attractive buildings in Cuxhaven is unfortunately completely overbuilt in the harbour and not very well maintained in the surrounding area. The D850 was used with the 24mm PC-E and 2 ND filters (13 stops) to achieve > 4 minutes exposure time.
Canon has released a firmware-update in October. Two major changes that are interesting for me: Maximum paper length for printing is now 1200mm. This means that smaller panoramas can now also be printed in larger format (432mm x 1200mm). However, the handling of roll paper is only an emergency solution here. Since the printer does not […]
Some pictures from yesterday’s Santa Pauli Christmas Market visit. I have to go for the Dancing Towers again with more time. Great architecture. Details… …and one time in full view.
Here’s the attempt to take a picture of the historical public bathroom close to the dike at the ferry harbour in Cuxhaven.
Some pictures from yesterday in Hamburg. Fifteen kilometers on the odometer, but the pictures are not as I thought they would be, or could have been. I have to go there again; especially with a better tripod. I had decided to pack the makeshift solution; and, it really is, an absolute makeshift. Nevertheless, one or […]
Two black/white pictures from Bremerhaven. The pictures were thought from the outset without color, so no subsequent “oh yes, that might work also” pictures. I have to do the Klimahaus again when the Christmas lights have been removed.
