My Photo Equipment

IMG_1049

I often get asked by friends and clients what equipment I work with and I get it. If you are just starting out, or if you are interested in buying a new camera, there are a ton of different options, and to be completely honest, I really don’t know much about the technical pros and cons of any given camera modell. I just happened to start out with an old Canon DSLR and have been pretty happy with the brand ever since. So while I can’t provide much insight into what camera brand or modell is the best, I thought I could tell you what I use and some general things I wish I had known, back when I started.

I think I mentioned before that, when I’m traveling, more often than not, I take photos with my phone. The idea of carrying my heavy DSLR for a day of shopping simply doesn’t appeal to me. However I’m a big proponent of editing photos before sharing them, after all back in the day nobody ever saw the negative rolls either… people only got to see the finished photograph. And in my opinion the same should go for iPhone pictures. Continue Reading

Tip Tuesday: Taking beautiful pictures in the snow

Snow Birds (2 von 3)

Winter has finally arrived and given us tons of powdry white snow over the weekend. I couldn’t be more excited! I mean I could’ve done without slipping on that patch of ice and hurting my back -again- on Friday, but so what… not even that can put a damper on my mood these days. Since everything is covered in about 15cm of snow outside I figured it would be appropriate to compile a short list of tips  that should help you when it comes to shooting in the snow.
