Personal Project 3 – Germany

In early August there’s a rapid change in the light here in Germany. Until then there’s a feeling of summer. The days are long and the light has a clean quality. Then over two weeks the days become rapidly shorter. This doesn’t seem to happen gradually but surprisingly sudden. It’s as if the Earth tilts and with that the light takes on a new quality. Now, well into September, we’re getting the autumn light and the quality is softer, warmer and in a way cosier then just five weeks ago.

I love the painterly quality this gives the landscape. Together with the fog that now seems to be around most mornings, the warmer light creates a very intimate atmosphere. It’s as if you could touch the light, as if it’s organic and should have some haptic.

Of course it doesn’t have that. Nevertheless, the light now gives the landscape texture that in summer is rarely there.

Ausstellung in Bad Meinberg kommt gut an

Meine Ausstellung mit dem Titel „Bäume“ ist nun seit dem 15. August in Bad Meinberg zu besichtigen.

Das Feedback war bis jetzt sehr gut.

Ein erfreulich positiver Artikel erschien letzte Woche in der Lippische Landes-Zeitung (http://www.lz.de).

Das folgende Bild wurde bei Frau Brockmann von der Lippischen Landes-Zeitung gemacht und anschliessend im oben erwaehnten Artikel veroeffentlicht.

Der laengere Artikel erschien in Druck, aber der Anfang kann auch auf der Webseite der Zeitung gelesen werden.

Personal Project 3 – Germany

Summer has finally arrived, with temperatures in the 30+ degrees and some great opportunities to do evening photography between thunderstorms.

The Muensterland is famous for the many cyclists that get out and about at every opportunity.

With the stifling heat, high humidity and hardly a wisp of air, cycling is at times the only way to get the air flowing and to feel a little bit refreshed.

In any case, it’s fun and zooming about on the bikes is a good way to get to know the area better.

Continuation of a Project I started in New Zealand – Portraits

I’ve started doing portraits again.

Actually, portraits are one of my great passions in photography.

Anyhow, since arriving back in Germany nearly two years ago, formal portraiture hasn’t been something I’ve done a lot of.

Now that I’m settled, I’m starting again and I’m loving it.
