In the recent months, I was playing around with stereoscopic photography. That is taking two pictures side by side to generate an 3D vision.

Chicago is known for skyscrapers left and right of the Chicago river, the worldwide best blues music (e.g., Magic Sam, J.B.

Waiting for a gap to cross a street is almost hopeless. But if you have the courage to walk straight through the traffic, you will imagine the traffic flowing around youRead More
Here are a few impressions from the Photokina 2016. A lot of new equipment like, e.g., the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV. But also many shows and presentations. Martin Krolop spoke on their Roadtrip to France, Felix Rachor taught how to set light, and Christian Altengarten did several life shootings on the Tamron stage. Beside the Photokina, I visited the city centre of Cologne. The Cologne Cathedral is the second tallest in the world and one of the biggest GothicRead More
IAA in Frankfurt is the biggest automotive trade fair in Germany. All major brands show their newest innovations. But the most impressive of the IAA is how much effort they spend to present their products. Especially, big brands like BMW and Mercedes have their own exhibition halls with a big stages and show programme.
