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

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

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.

Happy days.

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
