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.

All other content will stay with Reinhold Staden Photography.

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 & 🐶

Looking closer… #4

Variations of an object. Rather than posting 4 different objects I decided to stick to one object for today. I captured 4 close-ups. Tomorrow I will use a similar approach, but will use “photo stacking”.

Focus stacking is a digital image processing technique which combines multiple images taken at different focus distances to give a resulting image with a greater depth of field (DOF) than any of the individual source images. Wikipedia

“I wish that all of nature’s magnificence, the emotion of the land, the living energy of a place could be photographed.”
— Annie Leibovitz

“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.”
— James Lalropui Keivom
