Aerial Shots Of Switzerland

I am really fortunate to have a brother who’s a pilot because it means that I sometimes have the opportunity to see the country from a perspective not many people have the chance to see. A perspective that makes it possible to take absolutely beautiful images!

Selective Colour at the Zigermeet

In August last year I had the opportunity to watch one of the biggest Airshows in Switzerland called the Zigermeet which was located in Mollis. When I was looking through my pictures of that day, I decided to try out selective colour to highlight the planes painted in the typical swiss colours. The left picture shows a PC-7 manufactured by the swiss plane manufacturer Pilatus and the picure on the right features two Northrop F-5 Tigers flown by the Patrouille Swiss.

My First Attempt At Water Splash Photography

The way high shutter speeds can stop the time and freeze movements completely in a way our eyes aren’t capable of seeing has always been fascinating to me. Thus I have decided to try Water Splash Photography myself.

Because of the lack of professional studio equipment I had to set up the scene in the most simple way. As a light source I have used a desk lamp and as a background a blue sheet of paper was the best I could find. Although this primitive setup I was actually surprised at how well the pictures turned out.

Venice in Black and White

“Venice never quite seems real, but rather an ornate film set suspended on the water.”

-Frida Giannini

In July 2016 my girlfriend and I had the opportunity to visit the stunningly beautiful city of Venice for two days with her grandparents. As someone who is interested in photography I naturally had my DSLR with me and tried to take some snapshots as we were walking trough the overcrowded venetian alleys.

Even though the city is full of visitors, it’s still gorgeous and gives you lots of opportunities to take a few good looking holiday photos.

Bare in mind that those images are all just snapshots and aren’t well thought-out composition wise at all, but I’m still happy with the results.
