My first photo shoot

Perdita For a long time I did hesitate to take photographs of people, as than you also should deliver something proper. It is very pleasant that Sunflowers or Meerkats do not complain if you mess up some shots. 😉 But last week I had my first photo shoot with a real model! What should I say – wow, I’m still blown away! That’s so much fun! (more…)

New infrared page

Untreusee (Hof) - Infrarot I spend much more time than I thought with my infrared camera. Probably, you also noticed this by the flood of infrared shots I have been showing here. 😉

So I thought now it tis time that I give my infrared photography a little place of her own. Therefore, you have the posibility to visit a own infrared page on which you can see all infrared stuff togehter.

Infrared photos – How is it done?

IR Foto - Vorher/Nachher As I have been asked already many times how these infrared photos (Eremitage, Bayreuth, Pfaffenteich, Stadtweiher) are made and if I get them directly out of the camera like this, I will reveal the “secret” behind them. 😉
From the original photo out of the camera until the final infrared photo it is quite a long way. I will show you all important steps one after the other and always on the example photo above from the Untreusee. (more…)

Infrared photos from the Untreusee

Untreusee (Hof) - Infrarot As I had not made much infrared photos of the Untreusee in Hof, I found no peace and needed to change this quickly. And sometimes all comes together, because as soon as I had made up my mind, the most beautiful clouds were on the sky and I did not hesititate and went for a trip to the Untreusee. Probably most of you don’t know the lake, so let me tell you, it is a small artificial lake south of Hof, which is used as recreation area and the people like it very much. There is not only beautiful countryside, but also a climbing park in the forest, a beergarden, beachvolleyball fields, barbecue sites and a really huge playground for kids. (more…)
