It was a strange feeling actually – to be standing on this opulent mega structure in the middle of the desert, miles away from the city, and with nobody around. Half the lights were dead too.

André Appel6,503Received the G5 + several lenses for testing and reviewing by Panasonic Europe. In this hangout, I will show you the camera and give you a first hands on preview. I will compare it to the GX1 (same sensor and a lot of similarities) and tell you what I think about it so far. I will also take a look at the Leica 25mm and Leica 45mm lenses, that were kindly enough provided by Panasonic. Of course I will show you some stunning images from the studio I've taken with the G5 + Leica lenses so far in a first test shooting. I am looking forward to you!Hands on preview of the Panasonic G5 + 25mm & 45mm Leica lenses2012-12-03 19:00:006

Bad weather - it started snowing - did not stop me from taking this shot... and I like the drops on the hand rail and the reflections on the walk.

Let's talk business

#HQSPPortraits  +HQSP Portraits by +Frank Nöthe +Ryan Ottaway Martin 

Why do I have to twist and turn my head into such inconvenient positions? This doesn't feel right.
...because it looks good ! We're not here to laze around and feel comfortable, we are here to shoot photos ;)
Do I really have to twist more ? Honestly, this feels insane.
...the more weird it feels the better it'll look, trust me.
We had more of this kind of conversations throughout this shoot and we also had a lot of fun.

About my first collection

my first collection had to be a lighthouse collection. So I entered my hashtag into the search field and scrolled through many of the posts shared with my themes and re-shared the good ones to my first collection. My personal stream looked like the work of a lighthouse lunatic, because 99% of the posts I put into the collection were - of course - not mine and so I couldn't move them, but had to re-share them.

Later on I built up themed collections about Frankfurt a.M. a fascinating place where I  take pictures quite often. More and more collections followed to cover different topics of many of my former albums like portraits, or some of my new interests in zoom and motion photography, I also started to collect interesting posts in a private bookmark collection.

At the moment I have 12 collections - which in average makes one for each month collections are with us here on G+.
And I hope there will be more to come.

So Happy Birthday Collections !

Making of - of an unusual on location office portrait

It was fun to shoot this series.

First we went for dinner to wait for the blue hour.

Around sunset at 8 pm we split up, he went back into the building and I drove to the first location from where I wanted to shoot from. 

20:15
But only 15 minutes later it was still too bright to get a decent exposure time to zoom. With ISO 50 and f8 I got 1.6 seconds exposure without a ND filter, which I didn't want to use to keep the auto focus working.It also turned out, that even with a 300mm zoom I wasn't close enough to have my model visible at a reasonable size.

So I decided to move closer to let him appear larger.

20:25
10 minutes later and 200m closer with f16 I reached a 20 second exposure time and could start zooming. I was standing on a rail road bridge with pedestrian path heavily used by joggers and also quite a bit of train traffic, so I had to wait some time to make my shots. After several shots I changed locations again to get a completely different angle form the other side of the river next to the building. My model had to change offices in order to get into the frame and I hurried back to my car to get to the other river bank.

20:50
Around 8:50pm I started shooting again , from the river bank now and it was dark enough to shoot with f8 and 25 seconds exposure. At that point it was the perfect time for blue light. Took some shots and shortly before the end of the blue hour I drove back to my first shooting spot to take some zoom images with the skyline in the background. 

21:10
My model went back to the other office and posed again. The hole time we communicated via our cell phones. I informed him when the exposure started and counted down the seconds for him to stand still before I began zooming after which he could relax. Passers by must have been wondering what kind of strange call I was having. 

21:15
At the end at 9:15pm I had about 24 shots from four different angles and only two of them turned out blurry due to vibrations caused by heavy winds. Not too bad.

The different kind of Office Portrait

FB shares lost preview images ....

Today I had to remove all my older shares from my FB page, because they looked boring without images. Somehow the links to the images are rendered invalid a while after they were shared. Makes me sad.
I noticed that when I edit a post in FB after I shared it on G+ it looses it's image, but I think I didn't edit all my older posts .... :(


In reverse I can not share any link to a google+ post in FB. It just does not show any preview image but an 404 error  in FB, so sharing from G+ to FB makes no sense at all.

Head First

When you see this from the highway you get puzzled and have to concentrate to stay focussed on driving.
So I took the exit and put out my tripod to take some blue hour shots.
