Quick and easy Vertoramas

August 24th, 2019 | Cityscape Photography, Post Processing

Sometimes my widest lens just isn’t wide enough to capture the scene in front of me in all its glory.

Both techniques require taking multiple photos while either rotating the camera horizontally, vertically or[…]

Cityscape Photography in Chicago

August 17th, 2019 | Cityscape Photography, Travel Photography

It’s been nearly twenty years since my first trip to the USA. Back then I visited Chicago for a few days, long before I started with photography. That’s kind of a shame, because Chicago is such a photogenic place. So, as work required me to travel to Detroit for 10 days last month, I instantly[…]
