And the winner is…

all what is happening currently around the world. It has eaten up my happiness, my believes and my creativity. How can I possibly post an awesome, beautiful and motivating moment with all of that in my head. My blog comes to a hold, may be to an end. Then… this will be my last post. Thanks for all your likes, comments and support. I will always remember the days of our weekly photography challenges. May the light always be with you. Stay healthy and safe. May be we see and write us again. When the world has changed and will become a better (at least a normal) place.

With love, hugs and smiles.
Reinhold & Boomer

My way

hin/weg – Project of Heidi / Nahaufnahme. Theme for this month: Rezept (Recipe). Whether it’s a path through a forest or moor or a solution path… all of them have one thing in common. A leading line. I am using tracks, roads, piers and shapes as leading lines for my images. Do I have a recipe? I think there are no rules, no recipes. Breaking the rules, enjoying the moment, nature and landscapes is more important. The same is true for cooking. I never follow recipes or rules. And I like it. But in our current situation you have to follow one recipe. Stay safe and healthy. Happy days. Reinhold

And why do I have to follow all these rules?

Design with me… #6

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.

That means more „Walking my dog“ posts 😱

Happy days. Reinhold & 🐶

Autumn is at its peak in the moment. I captured this yellow/orange tree in sunset light in the woodlands around our lake. I transferred it into a burning tree using the oil paint filter (once again).

Happy days. Reinhold

Calendar 2019

RSP - Reinhold Staden Photography - Preselection Berlin Calendar 2019
Preselection Berlin Calendar 2019

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.

Hope to get all 3 calendars ready / printed soon.

Happy days. Reinhold
