What's new

travel tripod

I have translated an article I have originally written in German about the travel tripod.

understanding photography

There is a new date for my photo course "understanding photography " which will help you understand your camera gear. The course is held in Älmhult in southern Sweden (the course will be in English) in coorperation with SV Kronoberg; there are some places left!

hdr photography

I have translated an article I have written some years ago in German about hdr photography. There is a lot of information in it which is still valid and useful; I hope also for you!

Epson 3800/3880 maintenance

Even the best inkjet printer is not free from wear and tear. If black ink stains appear on the printouts and ruin them, maintenance is required. This article describes exactly how this works and what causes the ink stains.

timelapse

The video quality and playback on the timelapse page has been optimized and the layout adapted. The two videos "aurora borealis, northern lights in the artctic" and "bellwald winter scapes" are now available in improved quality.

understanding photography

I will be giving a new photo course with the title "understanding photography" which will help you understand your camera gear. The course is held in Älmhult in southern Sweden (the course will be in English) in coorperation with SV Kronoberg; perhaps it's something for you: understanding photography.

inkjet printing

The inkjet technique has given us a great printing technique where you can achieve amazing results. But the possible settings are very varied and you will often be overwhelmed by which parameters you should set and how exactly. Print with 240dpi or with 300? Does that really make a difference? Or rather with the setting "high quality". And what about the color management; printer driver or Photshop? This article gives information and clear recommendations so that you don't have to test everything yourself.

aperture

The aperture, along with shutter speed and sensitivity, is the most important setting parameter for exposure. Most people know that a small f-stop numbers also means less depth of field and vice versa, but how exactly do you define depth of field? What is a circle of confusion and what is the effect of a high number of aperture lamels? And what does Bokeh mean? The article "aperture" describes all this and much more!

technical articles

During the last years I have published many various articles about photography, photo editing and printing. It was time now to clean up and give the technical page a little lift up. Have a look at the new overview over my technical articles!

sensor sizes

In this article I describe the influences of the sensor size on the focal lenth and also on the aperture and the picture quality. The subject is very interesting and with the help of this article you will learn about the effects the sensor size will have on your photography; have a look on sensor size!

how many lenses do you need?

In this short article I describe the path to using an extensive lens collection and then again to simplify the equipment until you (possibly) end up with a standard lens: How many lenses do you need?.

Bretagne, part 2

The 2nd part of my gallery of pictures about the Bretagne covers the northern part around the small village of Tréguier between Lannion and Saint Brieuc. From here the phantastic coast limnes around Plougrescant and the beatiful island Ile de Bréhat are easy reachable. But its also not so far to travel to the beatiful cities of Dinan and Saint-malon and from there to toursit hot spot Mont Saint-Michel is just around the corner: Bretagne, Part 2.

Bretagne, part 1

The Bretagne is a big county in the northwest of France with a wild coastline and a incredible tide of up to 14m. This first part shows pictures of the southern region around the village of Penmarch: Bretagne, Part 1.

Äkäslompolo

Äkäslompolo is one of the bigger ski resorts in northern Finnland. It has changed a lot since we visited the first time 15 years ago. We were very lucky this year and were able to see the Aurora multiple times with great displays. The weather was also great and we could enjoy the grand landscape from the cross country tracks: Äkäslompolo.
