I captured this image last week with my workhorse, the Fuji X-T1 and processed it with my new Affinity Photo app for iPad. I like the strong contrast between the old roof tops of the Speicherstadt in the foreground and the modern roof top of the Elbphilharmonie. I was trying to avoid the typical touristic shot of these amazing places in Hamburg. Happy days. Reinhold
Hamburg. My second home for the next months. I will be quite often in this gorgeous harbor city. Looking forward to run some tours and workshops here. Moorland photography, services and all my activities at home will continue but will be enriched by urban landscapes of Hamburg. Happy days. Reinhold
If you got nothing in the foreground, nothing in the middle and just a horizon line in the background you have nothing left to lose… so I took an image of the wet sand reflecting the sunset. We are still having an endless period of bad weather, cold with lots of wind and rain and gray skies. Not ideal for landscape photography. Hopefully my design will brighten up your day and will create a smile on your face while you are listening to the music. Happy days. Reinhold
This is one of the reasons why I always carry a “walking stick” with me when I go into the moor. If it is cold and wet you can see the network of player #1. If it is dark or sunny but dry weather you don’t. And they don’t stop at the regular tracks through the moor. I always use my stick a bit ahead of my face. Otherwise I soon will be part of the network… and without a Facebook, Instagram or Twitter account I am not really a “network” guy. But without all these networks in my face I am quite happy exploring my Moorland.
Today I finished my design for the upcoming art craft market in June. If you want to support this activity of local artists, please follow this link to my homepage.
A little bit of “traffic” will help to find us with the keyword “Kunsthandwerkermarkt Bad Zwischenahn” in search engines. Happy days! Reinhold
During my workshops and tours we also touch pano shoots. Obviously not an easy exercise. We often have trees and bushes in our composition and the ground is pretty unstable, often wet and muddy. I have created a series of “5” (tips) cards (also for my own memory) which I carry with me and which I handout to the members of my party. May be they could be useful for you as well. Best printed in 4×6” format using your local printer and stored in your camera bag. Happy days. Reinhold
Moorland. A magic triangle of a calm and peaceful lake and two spectacular moors in a remote location in the rural north. A landscape of light and shadow often covered with rolling mist and fog. Soaking from heavy rain with strong winds from the North. Blue skies with periods of sunshine leaking through fast moving clouds. Starting and ending in flames of light and colors during sunrise and sunset. Packed with wildlife featuring deer, fox, owls, waterfowl, birds of prey and wading birds on patrol at the shores of the lake.
Hi there. Long time ago since my last post. Many things happened. I am now grandpa (its a girl) and I have set my focus to my local photography projects. The Moorland concept and all related activities have eaten up all of my productive and creative time. Photography tours and workshops in the moors, an exhibition at an art fair in my area, many new projects, …
In addition I am currently working my way into flat and material design illustrations (vector images) using Affinity Designer replacing Adobe Illustrator. I often need a new business card, flyer, an icon / image for my website or other marketing material. And may be I can provide some of these new services to other people and companies.
I will continue to use my blog for all my activities in 2019 and will also continue to post images of the Moorland (landscapes) and other projects (cityscapes/portraits).
I plan to post regular on a weekly basis: Thursdays, 6 pm (CET).
Happy days. Reinhold
Thanks for your visits, likes and your support in 2018. Have a wonderful Christmas time and the best wishes for a happy new year 2019. See you there… Happy Christmas days. Reinhold
