The purchase of a camera on 24th December 5 years ago was a spontaneous decision, because I did not have a Christmas present for me yet. Why not buy a camera?
I then bought the Sony SLT-A35. This camera had live view and was very compact. Perfect for me as a beginner. At that time, it was not foreseeable that Sony would revolutionize the market for full-frame cameras with the A7 series.
For now I only had the kit lens and a Minolta 70-200 zoom for € 70. Well suited for experimenting and the basics of the photographer. I then switched to the SLT-A77 and bought the Sony A7R two years later. My passion grew, every holiday became a photo safari, I used every business trip in the evening to take photos.
I think there are millions of photos on the web that all looked very similar. I then came across the photographer Trey Ratcliff, who edited his photos with HDR. I was thrilled, the photos got more color, more pop and suddenly looked cooler.
I also learned the HDR photography and especially the post-processing.
Today I use a variety of possibilities, HDR, exposure blending and many other design options.
Depending on the photo, recording quality, composition I decide.
3 years ago I started my photo blog. I use the blog to learn, to broaden my horizons. Every day I post a photo. Learning, trying out, photographing, post-processing and motif search are my daily activities.
