Some photos of Berlin I’ve made this year.
See photos of 2016.
I’ve just came back from a trip to Saxon Switzerland and have realized that I forgot to show these photos from last year.
And one photo from a forest walk the next day:
October 2016, Saxon Switzerland National Park, Germany.
Bohemian Switzerland is the same thing as Saxon Switzerland but on the other side of the German-Czech border.
It was a rainy evening and we were far from a place we’ve chosen for a sunset. The Sun was close to the horizon and we were desperately trying to find at least something to shoot. When we were coming back to the best stop we could find, a viewing point, from which this photo was made, we saw that the Sun was shining through a tiny crack in the clouds and the whole valley was filled with a thick golden light. We ran like the Fellowship of the Ring, jumping over tree roots and steps of a staircase to the viewing point. The whole shoot took not more that several minutes: unpack a camera, set up a tripod, choose and change a lens, compose a frame, focus and shoot. I had enough time to only take four frames with different exposures until the Sun had gone.

One November Sunday morning I went to a park and was surprised to see almost monochrome trees in strong backlight. It was a bit tricky to shoot though: it’s a fenced pond in a public park so I had to shoot with a telephoto lens over the fence and the highest position of my tripod wasn’t

I often shoot with my Canon 6D and my iPhone at the same time: sometimes the same compositions, sometimes different, sometimes just a back of my Canon. I often use these pictures, processed in VSCO Cam or Darkroom, as a color inspiration when I process Canon photos. Or, for example, I shoot at long exposure and after looking at iPhone photo I realise that short exposure works better.

Finally after a year and a half of photography hibernation I’m shooting regularly again. I’ve made most of these photos in the last two months.
