I’m currently screening and sorting my pictures from Iceland. Although the weather was unpredictable and we even had snow in August, it was really a great trip (also from a photographer’s point of view). To give you an idea of the different landscapes and light conditions encountered and to shorten the waiting time, here are some examples:
One of my favorite photography techniques is long exposure during daytime. A scene may look totally different depending on the exposure time. All moving elements will be blurred in a long exposure. In landscape photography this especially applies to water and elements affected by wind, such as clouds.
The following two images are examples of the same scene captured with exposures of 44 s (above) and 1/20 s (below).
In less than a month a friend and I will depart on a 3-week trip to Iceland. While exploring the country by car and on foot we hope to capture the wonderful Icelandic sceneries with our cameras. Our trip will involve a lot of hiking, including the famous Laugavegur, a multi-day hike in southern Iceland.
After the Iceland trip I will be visiting the Lofoten Islands in northern Norway for another week. Thus, you can expect a lot of new pictures to be added in October/November (unfortunately taking pictures involves also some work at the computer). Possibly also a travel report will follow.
Finally I have completed the revision of my website. The old galleries have been integrated and will soon be extended by new material, as I am planning two trips in the next months. I will try to keep you up to date with my activities and possibly also provide you some information on my approach to photography in the future.
For now, feel free to explore my galleries. If you find any errors or have problems with the new site please contact me. Thank you!
