10 years: Cities

Ten years ago, in 2004, I started this photoblog. To celebrate this, I decided that for each of the ten months left in 2014, I'll re-publish ten pictures respectively.

One thing which continuously fascinates me are cities: The density of both buildings and infrastructure as well as the masses of people; their humming public transit systems, lights at night, bars, restaurant; and the corners and angles you only see on second sight.

10 years: Experiments

Ten years ago, in 2004, I started this photoblog. To celebrate this, I decided that for each of the ten months left in 2014, I'll re-publish ten pictures respectively.

A big part of getting to know the camera, the lenses attached to it, the different settings and what postprocessing can do has been experimenting. I believe interesting photography always shows things from an angle the viewer usually doesn't see them. Although my compact camera only offered very limited possibilities, I played a lot with long exposure in the beginning. Later on, with my DSLR producing far better pictures in low-light situations, I started working with light, and postprocessing. The awesome bokeh produced with my 50mm, f/1.8 lens, really lets you focus on detail as the viewer. The surreal pictures taken with exposure times in the minutes using light painting, a style inspired by a friend of mine, work especially well with eerie abandoned places. My most recent lens, the 8-15mm fisheye, distorts reality in akward ways. And capturing moments like a lightning strike or running water freezes reality that is too fast for the human eye.
