Stratlicious


The title is a portmanteau I thought out. I think my Stratocaster looks delicious, and if it would be a cake, I’d take a bite. But now enough praising. I like to take pictures of things, this also includes guitars. For the curious guitarists, this is a Fender Classic Series 50’s Stratocaster. I shot the photo near my PC desk where I can control the light with my RGB tape. And I liked it how different colors made the scene and the coating of the guitar look different. It’s actually a green guitar, but the RGB behind the desk was … Continue reading Stratlicious

Cucumber Salad


It’s no big news that I love all kinds of salads. I don’t just like to eat them, I also like to photograph them. I like how salad bowls with different colors look on different surfaces, like different tables or different wood surfaces. But of course, it’s mainly about the salads because they look fresh and make great food photographs. The photo in this post was shot in my mother’s garden. She prepared cucumber salad for us all, and I saw the dark brown bench and thought i t would be a perfect background for the salad bowl. I like … Continue reading Cucumber Salad

Dog Nose Snapshot


Today I visited my mother and her dog Charlie came to me when I was on the balcony. I thought I take a snapshot with my 40mm lens. It was not easy because it was afternoon and cloudy. I am unhappy with the focus but I don’t want to delete the photo. I just call it a snapshot and experimenting (laugh). Maybe I can do it better on a brighter day. There are more photos of Charlie on my blog. Continue reading Dog Nose Snapshot

Daisies


Here is another shot with my 40mm lens. I already shot photos of daisies in the past, but I think it works much better with my 40mm lens now. It was a bit difficult to frame the shot but I don’t think the subjects always have to be completely in the frame. I liked the images as it came out of the camera, I just added a bit of clarity and sharpness. Apart from that I just made it a tiny bit brighter, that’s all. So far, the lens gave me some “good to go” images. Do you like the … Continue reading Daisies

Fir Hedge Background


Still experimenting with my new 40mm lens. And I realized you can also take some photos with it that could work as a nice Windows background on my PC, or as a background on my mobile devices. What I did there with the image above was getting very close to a fir hedge, focussing in the front and having depth of field in the background. I like photos like this one and will probably take my own background images in the future. I uploaded the image without doing any edits because I liked it as it came out of the … Continue reading Fir Hedge Background

White Flower


Here is another photo taken with my new Nikon 40mm Micro lens. It’s some time ago since I shot my last flower photos, because most of my lenses don’t do it well. Minimum focus distance was not really a big thing with my old point-and-shoot camera nor with my smartphone, that’s why I shot many photos of flowers back then. But my DSLR lenses didn’t do the job well, until now. So, I think once in a while there will be flower photos again on my blog. Continue reading White Flower
