NOT climbing a mountain could be very efficient

Beside photography, my main hobby is mountaneering and climbing. If you have a hobby or a sport too, you should think about it as an opportunity to photograph while you do it what you love. Of course when you climb mountains, the main goal is to summit…but sometimes you just can’t. Because of the weather, because you injured, or like this time: because you are ill. Yes, I started early on Friday with a massive cold, I have headache, runny nose, sorethroat…and 700 km to drive through Austria... continue reading

Tip of the week: editing, how to do it and how not to overdo it

Have you ever seen an overly tuned car? Or maybe a lady with too much makeup on? Was your initial thought that maybe less is more? It works almost the same in the case of photo editing. In today’s world, we have cameras that allow us to shoot RAW images which we can fiddle with afterwards in order to achieve better results while keeping focus on being more creative while shooting. But isn’t that something that often might cause our images to look unnatural? It actually is, and the first problem... continue reading

Places, spaces

BACK OFF, MAN!

Vary your lenses to take in the complete picture...Because wild critters are my passion, the long lens tends to stay on the front of my camera. On a recent vacation to a treehouse cabin in Waynesville, North Carolina (see the photo journal here), I sat on the patio every morning and afternoon with my 600 mm lens hoping to photograph some Life Birds.But one morning as I watched down the mountainside and into the valley below, I wrote in my journal, “The landscape before me constantly... continue reading

Best road trip destinations around the world

This is my first time participating in a Dreamstime blog contest. I was intrigued by the subject as I am quite passionate about road trips. I just love road trips and usually tend to choose my travel destinations according to whether I can include at least a driving part. I love the sense of freedom and I love to open the window and breathe in the fresh air. I love everything about road trips, even the part when I get lost or get stuck in the snow. The beauty of road trips is that they always tend... continue reading

How to Find Great Landscape Shots While on the Road

I left America in spring of 2016 to see the world, and I've been in a state of travel ever since. You might say I've been "on the road", and not just figuratively; many of my days are literally spent on a road, a rail, a river, or other thoroughfare on the way to a new destination. Because of that, landscapes from along my routes tend to dominate my subject matter. Early into this adventure, the sensory overload of new sights promoted some shutter-happy habits that I soon realized... continue reading

Photographers follow in the footsteps of Ansel Adams hoping to create their own masterpieces. There are many opportunities to take good photos on the road. Not all your photos need to be of sweeping landscapes.... continue reading

Foreground and Background, a perspective to landscapes

You can tell that a person is tall, short, fat or thin; but you can make that appearance stand out when you place two contrasts together. A tall and thin persons next to each other would intensify both their lengths.Contrast is important in a still to show what exactly is within.
