Happy New Year!

Hey Folks,

I wish you all the best for 2011! Thanks for reading Phocussed and stay tuned: In the last days some new equipment including a new lens arrived! Since I’m still a little hungover of celebrating new years eve with some close friends in Stuttgart I will post the first shots tomorrow – see  you then!

And this is my motto for 2011:

It’s a Fake!

Last week I went to small hill right next to our city. I wanted to shoot some beautiful pics of the sunset on this day, but the clouds weren’t with me and I only got pretty lame pics. But after the discovery of Lightroom and inspired by this blogpost on kwerfeldein.de I just tried to get the best out of the .RAWs. Weiterlesen …

Let there be Light!

Today was a classic, november-style, sunday afternoon. I was hanging around in my flat and had nothing special to do. So I decided to try something new to edit my shots and played a littze with the 30-day trial of Adobe’s Lightroom I downloaded a few days ago. Weiterlesen …

Where the Wild Things are!

I think some curiosity is something, everybody in photography should have. Some weeks ago I was in Stuttgart to visit my girlfriend for a few days. She had a day off and we went to the the Zoo Wilhelma. We came right on time for the feeding of the penguins. AltoughI was a little dissapointed about the closed butterfly shed, it was a beautiful day in the zoo. Weiterlesen …

A Trip to Austria

Here’s another concert set I shot in the middle of August at the Poolbar Festival in Feldkirch, Austria. It was the first time I went to this pretty cool festival nearby. It is located in an old swimming pool which is used as festival venue during the summer months. The amazing thing about the Poolbar Festival: it is completely organized by volunteers – and, altough it is located in the middle of nowhere between the first alp summits, the festival schedule is packed with international indie top acts. I made it to a Pantha Du Prince set and a concert of Portugal.The Man which was supported by the Salzburg-based guys from the Steaming Sattelites but this was only the tip of the iceberg: this summer’s programme was stuffed full of names like Shout Out Louds, Monster Magnet, Wir Sind Helden, Bad Religion and many many more… Weiterlesen …

Structures

Sorry folks, I did not post anything for a while. I finished my studies in the last months and it took so much time and energy that I couldn’t find spare time to blog. But I’ll promise that I’ll post more regular in the future. If I will get internet access in my new flat… […]

Get B/W Soon!

Yesterday I went with some friends to a concert of a german band called „Get Well Soon“ in Friedrichshafen. After playing a huge european tour they now play all the big festivals like Melt! and Frequency this summer. And the Kulturufer Friedrichshafen. I think the band and the mastermind Konstantin Gropper decided to play this […]

Éire

Here are some pretty old shots I made with an approx. 30 years old SLR. My dad gave the old Pentax to me when I left for a three weeks vacation in Ireland with Claudius, a good friend of mine. It was the big trip after finishing our a-levels in 2006. Weiterlesen …

The Good Life

The last weeks were just great. After finishing our bachelor theses, my fellow students and me had a lot of time to enjoy the summer. Yesterday we started a trip to a small lake nearby and had there a wonderful bbq. Weiterlesen …
