Experimental Harbor Photo


Above you can see an experimental photo I shot at the harbor area in L├╝beck. It is sometimes interesting to try things out, and I think I wanted to use the reflection of the window. You see an old storehouse that is now used for festivities, and in the reflection of the window you see the harbor and Trave River. In my opinion this image worked quite well in black and white so that I applied this to the image. Continue reading Experimental Harbor Photo

I didn’t take a lot of photos as I find it difficult in this less colourful season, but sometimes I still spot interesting things on my way. I hope you like this experimental photo too.

I activated the 1.3 crop mode of my D7100, then I disabled the vibration reduction mode of the lens as I wanted to use my tripod anyway. Apart from that, I enabled RAW and JPG fine, to see if I can get a little bit more quality out of the RAW file. I did set the camera manually to ISO 100, f/10 and 1/200 of a second. … Continue reading Experimental Moon Photo
