birthday panorama

I’ve been playing around with panoramas lately, first on my phone and then with my “real” camera. I liked some of the results made with the phone, but the native Android camera – which in my opinion makes the best panoramas – only saves tiny files that aren’t large enough to print. At my brother’s birthday, I took a series of pictures with my M9 that I wanted to turn into a panorama later, but then I forgot about them and they cought digital dust on my hard drive.

Yesterday, while cleaning up my computer, I found a panorama software that I bought a while back and remembered the pictures I took at Basti’s birthday. It didn’t take long to stitch the ten images together, and I think for a quick shot from the hip the result is really presentable. What I really like about it is that it doesn’t scale down the final panorama so that I can make large prints from the files. I will definitely play around more with this program in the near future. Stay tuned!

hipster fun at the bird park

On Monday, my family and I took my brother’s little kids to a bird park right outside our town. I had some fun with a pretty cool camera app called Vignette. It’s yet another one of these viral toy camera apps, buy you have a large variety of effects that you can apply after the picture is taken while the original is saved unaltered. Anyway, just some nerdy toy, but fun to play with. Here you go:

uncropped and untoned – spring 2010

A while ago, I posted on my facebook wall that I found an exposed but undeveloped film in my M7. Well, I finally took it to the lab, and there were some true highlights from spring 2010 on there. Without much further ado, here’s a selection of my favorites, uncropped and untoned in the order they were shot. Enjoy the time travel…

baby time

Two weeks ago, Beth and I finally made it to Bayreuth to visit my brother Hansi, his wife Katrin and my two adorable nieces Lisa and Clara. It was only the second time that I got to see Clara, who was born in May last year while we were still in the States. Even though I didn’t notice it while I was shooting, I found when I went through the take that most of my pictures of that weekend are of Clara. I guess I’ll just have to go back to Bayreuth and take some more pictures of Lisa…
