Cousins

Fasching came and went last week, and with it a stack of guests here in the Zillertal. We also received some welcome guests. The boys had a great time and were very sad that they had to go. On the last day I took one of the cameras (a proper one with lenses not just my trusty iphone!) to get some portraits of the kids. This is tricky at best when they are yooming about and you are trying to manually focus, compose and adjust manual settings, but I think that I got some good ones.

Monochrome Oktober Day 11

Each year I dedicate the month of Oktober (German Spelling, in case you were wondering) to the beautiful art of Black & White photography. Each day I will be posting a new Black & white image

I have a passion for this style of photograph, as it makes you concentrate more on the subject and really brings out the emotion of the image.

In the post processing phase, it is more than just removing the colour out of a picture but finding the right combination of tones and shades of grey that work within an image. With applications such as Photoshop you can change these mixtures to a great degree to give you more or less of those tones.

You can experiment with your photos as I am sure that your smartphone will have an editing section in it (both the iPhone Camera App and the Facebook App do this) and play around with the different settings.

Share your images with everyone by posting them to my facebook page

UK trip 2016

My summer has been pretty hectic so far and finding time to edit my own personal photos has been rare. However this week I managed to find a couple of evenings when I could sit down and work on some of the photos I took when we had family trip back to the UK. Hope you enjoy. G.
