2014: A Review

Article

I agree, it may be a bit late to have a look back at 2014, but my goal was to at least publish this post before the end of 2015 – so I’d call it a success! Anyways, if anyone is still interested in what my past year was like go ahead…

Rise of the Dark Knight

I'm finally back in front of my desktop computer after 11 weeks of travelling. Lots of new stuff to process and work on, but for now all I can offer is this older shot of mine. Found it deep down in my archive last year when I was looking…

Hold Your Breath

In late September I spent two weeks exploring northern Norway. Since I had skipped Lofoten (for reasons I'm happy to explain to anyone interested over a beer or two) I HAD to stop by at the equally iconic (but tolerably so) island of Senja.

Timeless Blue

Image

A few days ago I stumbled upon this shot that I had initially started processing but then forgot about. I remember liking the shot a lot, but due to extensive noise I didn't really bother. The noise came from a hot sensor (high temperatures, extended use of live view mode and long exposure) and looked much like what I had to deal with in "A Desert's Sky".

Yesterday I finally had the chance to watch the critically acclaimed documentary “Chasing Ice” in which environmental photographer James Balog sets up 25 timelapse cameras to record the decrease of arctic glaciers. While the topic itself…

In Perpetuity

It has not been long since I returned from a short trip to Asturias on the northern coast of Spain. The trip was not focused on photography and the weather did its best to make taking out my camera senseless, but I still managed to bring…
