Woodland photography (scouting)

A few days ago me and Boomer were scouting a forest 45 minutes by car from home. I want to create some woodland images in the next weeks. To save some reminders for the track I used my iPhone. It is a nice feature that you can display the image location(s) in a map view. So next time it will be easy to find the spots again. I have to wait for a promising weather forecast. And off we go! Happy days. Reinhold

Moorkind…

I never finally created my own, my personal photography style. My lenses were always wide open. There were various attempts. May be some of you remember my „bronze“ period. Or my awful HDR images. I tried everything from street, architecture to portrait and landscape photography. And don’t forget macro and dog photography. And I will continue to do so. At least in this blog. So welcome on board, fasten your seat belt and wait for Boomer (my dog) to come around serving drinks. A few days ago I deleted all of my social media accounts. I retired this year and now I retired from social media. But there is one genre that always had a bigger place in my heart. Black and white. Also a few days ago I created a new blog. moorkind.wordpress.com. This blog has some unique posting characteristics. Just the headline. One black and white or monochrome image, design or video. No comments. Wordless posts. My world in black and white. May be some very old images, older images and definitely new ones. But always my personal work. No guarantees to post daily. May be 2-3 posts a week. I have already posted some initial posts. Hope to see some of you over there. I am aware that a black and white blog may not be appropriate in dark times like these. But black and white images have to show stories and soul. And this is is my final challenge I would like to face in my remaining years on this planet.

Thanks for reading and happy days. Reinhold

PS: Moorkind – means child of the moors. It is the brand I use for all of my design and now for my black and white photography and video work.

Deep in the wetlands

The predator slowly moved forward. He listened to the sounds of the wetlands and smelled possible prey nearby. He had to be careful. There was this old guardian of the moors. He would be able to tame him with spells like „sit“ and „down“. But may be chicken and cheese would still be his reward. So he moved on.

… are you serious? 🐶

“It’s weird that photographers spend years or even a whole lifetime, trying to capture moments that added together, don’t even amount to a couple of hours.”
