My favorite jetty at our lake. Not always accessible. It is the end piece of jetty with sailing boats. Access is restricted to “Opening Hours”. They open later and close earlier than sunrise and sunset.
This time they owner stayed a bit longer… fishing. Lucky me! I asked him if I could enter the jetty to capture a few images.
After a friendly approval I shot 3 long exposures. This one is for a duration of 30 seconds at f6.4 using a LEE big stopper. (the others where 20 and 10 seconds)
It is also the only one which includes the rope as a foreground interest. What a difference to those without the rope.
The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step…
I am currently creating my Berlin 2019 calendar. This is my first preselection. I am using a square format. So it doesn’t matter if the images are in square, portrait or landscape format. Only the position of the “calendar” has to be adjusted. I have already used this for my Landscape 2019 calendar.
It is called “Moorland”. The proof version of “Moorland” is on its way to a printer.
Both calendars will be in English and available for pre-order starting in November 2018. The will be produced in 40×40 cm size using fine art paper. It is easy to cut out these images and use them as images to be framed.
I have just finished a special version of a “Landscape” calendar. I have combined images of products of a local company and my landscape images into a final composition. This was a very challenging and time consuming job. The image had to fit to the season (month) and to the product. And the integration shouldn’t “ruin” the image.
This sample shows a “filter” swimming in the water creating some interest for the gulls.
I was capturing the path through the moor. Tripod. Camera. Filter. Everything. In my “little world” of photography. When I pressed the shutter two dogs suddenly, without a previous noise, passed by. I nearly had a heart attack. In the end the resulting image made me smile.
Happy days. Reinhold
Back to the moor. What a fantastic feeling. The extremely hot and dry summer has created new interesting scenes. The water level is 1 to 1.5 m under the usual level. The coming autumn and winter will fill up these moorlakes quickly. Hopefully!
Happy days. Reinhold
Morning walk and sunrise at the Heiliger See in Potsdam. While capturing image #1 I was visited by a Fox. He disappeared quickly. So no time for a lucky shot. But this moment will be in my mind for quite a while. Happy days. Reinhold
My (our) first portrait shoot ever. This time our story was “HAIR”. What an experience. We had so much fun during our first session. And we had no ideal conditions. Outdoor, in bright sunlight… using the Fuji X100F in ACROS mode. But at the end of our session we had 20 images for a new portfolio. We have already planned another project in 3 weeks. This time the theme will be “WIND”. Autumn in North Germany is the ideal spot for that theme. Looking forward to that. Bye for now and happy days. Reinhold
The German transportation system is a nightmare. At least when I am traveling. Wasted time… wasted hours. I usually take out my iPad and start to work with some of my images and Snapseed. At the end some Covers are left in my Scrapbook. Who knows. May be I can use them in one of these days. Happy days. Reinhold
