February 2019 – What’s going on here?

February 2019 – What’s going on here?

Photo of the month

River Frya, Cyanotype

For this month I chose a photo from the River Frya near the former power plant in Bergsveinhølen, Norway.
Even though this waterfall is a little too fast for a 25-second exposure, I wanted to try out my new 10stop filter. So I lost a little detail in the waterfall, but am rewarded with the slight mist in the slower running river. It all worked out for the better, I think. In post-processing I decided to convert the photo into a Cyanotype in Adobe ® Photoshop. You can find the description of this process in this article. All in all, I think it makes for a beautiful image – which I gladly printed for my calendar.

Articles to come in February 2019


This month I am going to start my introduction series into Adobe ® Lightroom Creative Cloud on February 22, 2019. However, don’t worry, if you don’t have this specific version you still might find some useful information. The first article of this new series will help you get started with Lightroom and process your first image. For the later blog posts, I will cover the Develop Module and the Library Module in depth so you might discover something new along the way…even I do while writing these.

Are you thinking about deleting some of your photos from your hard drive, because you “imported them into Lightroom”? If so, do yourself a favor and read the Starting out with Adobe ® Lightroom article before you delete any photo of yours. This, to avoid any unpleasant surprises. To clarify: importing a picture into Adobe ® Lightroom does not mean you are safe to delete it from your hard drive. I’ll explain why in the upcoming blog-post.


For all those of you who aren’t interested in post-processing – or maybe you know more about it than I do already – the story of my Iceland journey also continues this month. We are going South! Famous photography destinations are waiting to be discovered on February 15, 2019. If you are getting cold feet from these winter images, I can only recommend a good old hot chocolate!

Website Updates

On my main website, the “Bulgaria – Off the beaten Track” gallery, as well as the Monochrome galleries have received a few updates in January. Of course, I will add more photos during the coming months.

I made a structural change as well. In the future, you will find the Monochrome, Macro, and Panorama photos both in the galleries for the country and in the respective “type” gallery. Hopefully, this will make it easier for you to find what you are looking for.
