Classic cars in classic setting

Last month, our group of photographers got the chance to shoot 30+ classic cars in a deprecated factory setting. The opportunity was unique and my results alone were quite satisfactory.

A couple of weeks later, we were asked to follow-up on these shootings in a historic private park/estate, which was great again.

Here are just a few highlights.

Lines, lines, lines

Today, browsing through my snaps of the past weeks, it suddenly occurred to me that I seem to be obsessed with lines and perspective. Unknowingly, I shot some images with quite similar composition in various different situations out of the spur of a moment.

The first picture was taken on occasion of a little walk with my family. The lines of the footpath leading to the horizon with the dog on the leash just providing a litte welcome distraction from being sucked into the image fascinate me.

The second image was taken on the runway of London City Airport with the plane taxying to the terminal. Again, the power of the lines seem to have got the better of me.

The third image is a shot taken while passing through an underground passage towards the tube stations in Kensington which I  immediately envisioned in black and white. Here again, the little details at the far end with the minute persons being just about visible keep my eye „in“ the picture rather than just following the lines towards the „golden cut“

The images were instinctively taken and edited in this way but they show just how powerful linear structures are to make everyday images fascinating and artistic.

By the way, all three images were not taken with extensive equipment but shot as cell phone RAWs using the LR mobile camera app on an iPhone 8 plus.

Bubbles and colors

Hi there, again!

These days I quickly snapped a few shots of my daughter doing soap bubbles. Some of them came out in the most amazing colors. The combination with the refections is stunning, isn’t it?

Photowalkus interruptus… the day when the rain set in

On February 1, our gang of photo friends had actually planned a walk through a local park in the dark. All day, water had spoilt our photographic enthusiasm in different aggregate states from rain, sleet, and snow down to hail). However, a few optimists met at 7 p.m. to decide, if we should try for some shots in the dark or take the „shots“ at a local pub, immediately. Read more
