The days pass by… one like the other. Yesterday I was kind of bored 😑. So I sat down, took my iPad and started to create some graphic designs. Hope you like some. Today things are getting better. Stunning weather forecast for the next days.
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.
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
I processed the underlying image in Lightroom CC
Converted it into black and white
Used dodge and burn to create more contrast
Afterwards edited it in Photoshop CC
Used the oil paint filter once
And … after leaving my playground…

– Ansel Adams
Wouldn’t it be awesome if one could paint an image like this?
I captured the underlying image in Amsterdam and stumbled upon it today while I was cleaning up my files. Always nice to go back to these older images and to play around with them.
This is the first video of my 90 days in Berlin series. Hope you will enjoy these first impressions of a city that never sleeps. Happy days and a nice and creative weekend to all of you. Thank you for your visit and your continuous support. Reinhold
This is an abstract created from a colorful ad sign in Berlin. For those of you who live in Berlin or have visited Berlin it is easier. The word has something to do with inspiration, creativity, … Happy days. Reinhold
In 2018 I would like to write about my workflow / my creative space. All of my camera gear and technical equipment is displayed above. The top 3 items are: glasses, tea and orange juice. First subject will be: my WACOM tablet. Why and how I use it, why it broke and how I fixed it. Happy days. Reinhold
It is 7:00 in the morning. I am planning to visit the Fintlandsmoor. Trying to get some snowy images of the wetlands and moor lakes. There is some snow left. But I think it is more rain than snow. It will be a cold and wet experience. I will see it in a few minutes. And you will see it later this afternoon.
