what you see is not what you see…

It is so. We like to be fooled by what we see. And I’m not even talking about how easily we get fooled by what we hear. The opening photo shows a rippled water surface in which treetops are reflected. The problem is that it is the roof of a car after a hailstorm 😁😁😁📷

so yesterday…

…I was finally able to start repairing the car. I ordered the necessary tools, a new windshield and turned the garden into a temporary car workshop. After removing the windshield, it started to rain. The bumblebees that made a nest under the old smokehouse disturbed me while I was working and posed on the blooms. I just had to pick up my camera…

head up…

The opening image is from 2020. Exactly three years ago, I photographed this beautiful comet on the last day I could see it. That world was completely different than it is today. This comet is currently moving in the constellation Hydra. And it is beyond my ability to see her. But if I look in the right direction, I can say:” I know you’re there…I know about you.” Just keep your head up….

As good as it gets…

On the way up the stairs to the photo chamber, I noticed a blue bucket on which the sun was shining through the skylight. I went back down to get my camera and took a picture with the exposure on the midle tone , another with the exposure on the brightest spot… and finally I switched the camera to BW mode because my world is black and white.

quick lesson…

last night my son showed me some photos on Instagram. He was very interested in how the photographer did it. So I showed him a very quick trick on how to achieve the same result. Of course, this is not a technique that can be used in documentary. It’s a technique for creative photographers. Feel free to cover the lens with your fingers, or use transparent adhesive tape, paper with several holes, grease the filter with vaseline (I use lard). The son was surprised how quickly the desired effect can be achieved without subsequent editing.Just be creative….😉📷🖼.

painted by the brain…

Our brain evaluates everything based on previous experiences. The eyes will give him some data and he will take care of the rest himself. That is why we experience, for example, déjà vu. In fact, we hardly read words letter by letter anymore. If you shuffle letters in the middle of a written word, the brain will eventually put this mixture together correctly very quickly. The brain is your only true friend… even if it sometimes doesn’t tell the truth😉😁📷 BauetifluTeusday for all🌞📷🧠

Don’t you want to go out and take pictures?

-I asked Jared (my son). He agreed. He preferred the DSLR over the analog camera offered by me. After a few shots I told him to switch the camera to black and white mode. He immediately saw a lot of places on the display that seemed boring to him before. All you had to do was pull the trigger. At home, I then showed him in the editor how easily the photos could be edited the way he wanted the photos to look. It was his third walk with a camera… the result is great.

Breadline …

A few older pictures from the places where the lost generation spent their youth. Who is to blame? We? Society? Company? They? Inspired by Megadeth – Breadline

thru and behind…

I was wondering what technique I haven’t presented much yet. I’m not much of an expert on DSLR photography…but one of the things I really enjoy about DSLRs is photographing subjects that are behind another subject at a minimal hyperfocal distance. So you photograph an object through another object. This style is primarily intended for color photography. So I offer a view of the yellow lily through the fuchsia flowers and a view of the fuchsia through the yellow lily.
