Fine Namibia Photography on Photoshelter

Not really wedding-related but I’d like you to know that Photoshelter has come up with lattice, a new way to create a kind of virtual stock agency.

I am curating the lattice board ‘Namibia‘ which will contain a tight set of outstanging Namibia photographs ready for licensing.

Please enjoy and consider contributing. This way you will get exposure for your photography and quite possibly generate sales!

Creative Flash Wedding Photography

Yep, 2015 has started, my short vacation at the coast is over. Photographically, I had fun with flamingos and ship wrecks…

Back to unusual: At his engagement shoot with Rebekka and Peter the other day it got a bit later and darker than planned so I had to use flash. I hate the flashy look of pictures. So I ‘dragged the shutter’, that is I used a long shutter speed (0.3 s, hand held). This allows to balance ambient and flash light and gives a much nicer appearance. I put a warming (orange) filter on the flash to avoid having a cool couple in a warm environment. This technique leads to somewhat unpredictable results but this one I really like.

Using a long shutter speed with flash allows to balance ambient and flash light and leads to interesting but somewhat unpredictable effects.
