Lined paper

I tried to shoot another macro but wanted to use a different light. A bunch of paper was used – you can see the edges and lines of the paper.
A white LED was the light source from the left and a laser pointer was used from the top and aimed between the paper.
In post processing I used the tonal contrast filter from Nik Color Efex. This enhanced the edges and enhanced the abstract effect of the picture.
I can imagine this quite good on a wall.

Thinking about creative commons

I was thinking about licensing and rights on pictures. It would take very long to elaborate all the details, but aren’t the classic licensing models restricted to the old distribution channels?

The red wheel

The red wheel

My wish would be that people use my pictures for something. In order to do this I will start to change the license on some picture to a creative commons one. This is as easy as opening a door.

What is the direct impact on you? If you want to use any of the correct lincesed pictures, you simply follow the rules (i.e. use the right attribution). You can also use them as desktop wallpapers if you like – as you can download a 2000 pixel wide version  from my flickr stream. If it is a portrait picture – opposed to a landscape one – the long side will be 2000 pixel high. It is a question of bandwith…

In case you want a higher resolution picture you still can get back to me.

The side effects of DOF

I love shallow depth of field and I love putting my nifty fifty on my camera to run through Vienna. I managed one of those rare shots where the shallow depth of field and the light makes an object jump out of the frame. The DOF is straight out of the camera. I just enhanced the colors. N news for the people who know my pictures 😉

The red rule

A picture consisting of contradictions can be especially nice to look at. But still there is room for improvement. The strange thing is, that the red rule nearly always gives you nice results. If you see something red, pull the trigger.
Sometimes the outcome will be especially nice. I was lucky 🙂
