I had some fun in the web and Photoshop what I wanna share with you
left: the original image by PhotoFunia (me on the t-shirt) right: edited by me
… and one more (with Tony and Kari, our cats)
here I made some color edits too
… and a portrait of her and her sister Kari – our housemates…
… and something about last week..
these long and hard days and nights. Well the one who saved me was my friend – the photographer – who cancelled two jobs he asked me to be with to assist him. So my time schedule was not that tight. At least the “Easy Moving” Session was wonderful. We played more than four hours and I met a lot of old friends I didn’t see for years at that event. It was a fine place to reactivate good old contacts without talking about things like “Once upon a time in the stone age” 😉
It was worth that to practise and make rehearsals for that event – f. eks. I played my upright bass on “Riders On The Storm”. I know that this sounds good (different!) but the audience was surprised about that sound – they loved it – for lots of them it was a new experience – and I was asked to play in another band what means MORE GIGS!!! And I love to play live on stage ’cause that’s the place where music really happens not on i-tunes 😉
So clear that we’ll make it again – next year
Here you can see the place where it happened (at the center of the image that follows)Some more shots will follow when and if I receive the photos a guy made on the event (and I feel they’ll be great)…
… time is by your side. I’m in urgent need to recreate now! Next week the days will be very long for me. Usually I can spend my time to recover in the evening hours – not so next week:
Monday (and I’m only talking about the evenings now!): preparing for some photosessions I’ll have together with my friend and some models (some special shootings we’ll make in a studio)…
Tuesday: Meeting with my guys for our new project “The Formerly Unknown” we’re starting now and it will be finished December ’11 (my job is the musical leadership and coaching the bands)!
Wednesday: last rehearsal for the “Easy Moving” Jubilee Concert
Thursday: Last rehearsal for my band “Blackout” for the Saturday Showcase at New Music School
Friday: Preparing for Saturday
Saturday: Showcase at NMS in the afternoon (3 hrs.) and Easy Moving Jubilée Concert in the evening
Sunday: I’ll be dead 😉
I’ll try to stay tuned – See ya! … and have a nice Halloween Weekend!!!
one more shoot I made yesterday (a little “encore”)
… one attempt of a HDR at the very early morning in my hometown at the railway station
and another one of the famous Bacardi works that supplies Europe and the eastern world with rum and whisky…
… I remembered that this was a title I used last year in the spring at Vox…
and that’s a way to find some new perspectives…
have a nice weekend!
August 13., after sunriseI made a lot of photos this morning. The first series I successfully tried was a panorama stitch of 5 photos (you can find it as header on my “something about me”. There was no wind and I thought to myself that some beautiful backlight would give me a chance to make some good shots in the marsh. There I tried my first HDR photo – successfully *yay*. When this work was done I entered my car to continue my photo scavenger hunt – and then – I discovered a flock of herons in the marsh. One of them was not that far away so that I could – just – better said – hardly – capture him with my 70-300mm lens.
Yesterday and todayAutumn is arriving now with giant steps. It was raining all the days what means that’s a good time to settle down on WordPress and checking out the files that are waiting on my harddrive to be sifted. OK , I started to look at this folder again yesterday in the late evening while the rain was pattering on the window and I made a discovery… When I checked out this folder the first time immediately after my shootings in August I selected the first and posted it to Vox (r.i.p.). But Yesterday I realized that I had a complete “heron’s breakfast” on my harddrive and started to crop and edit three photos and posted them here without any comments and went to sleep *yawning*… After I woke up *still yawning* I decided to make it complete (adding shot #4 and 5), then an intermission *growl* – take a shower – bring my love to the railway station (I’m in urgent need of the car, the weather is much better for some – I don’t dare to articulate…) and then some household chores *sic* while my entry is still waiting to be completed.
I made itNow to Hamburg – Rock ‘n Roll!!!! *vrooooom*
One day we visited the well known zoo "Hagenbecks Tierpark" in Hamburg.
190 of about 400 photos from that day (all were deleted) we could recover..
The rest – about 700 – are gone to the kingdom come. OK 190 are better than nothing… Here is one of them (more will follow). A lot of work is waiting for me…
