What’s up in May 2019?

Let’s have a look what the Wonnemonat (merry month of) May 2019 is going to deliver to this blog. Of course, there is a new photo of the month, after all, it is a new month. But there are also some posts coming regarding the story of my travels through Iceland, and we’ll continue the Learning Adobe ® Lightroom series.

Photo of the month

This is currently one of the newest photos, not only on my website but in general. Not that I would not already know that this is going to change soon. But hey, it is a good reason to make it the photo of the month too.

Spring is finally here…

Just about two weeks ago, I used my chance to take a break and visit my family back in Germany. Since I am not too often there, we usually make sure to have at least a day or two assigned for some photography tours. Not like the organized photo tours, that I take otherwise, but still a wonderful break from the normal schedule.

This time we went to the small village of Fischerhude. It is known as the village of farmers and artists, since 1895 when painters like Otto Modersohn and Paula Modersohn-Becker settled down here.
Despite its fame, the village has preserved its charm.

Though we weren’t here for the museums, but for a nice walk along one of the arms of the river Wümme. Of course, walking makes you a little hungry. So a stop at a café to enjoy some delicious cake and tea is included in such a tour.
I am already looking forward to the next time. If the weather plays along then too we will be going somewhere else. But before that, there are other travel adventures, which I am also looking forward too.

Articles to come in May 2019

Chasing the light in Iceland

The story continues with a visit to an ice cave of the Breiðamerkurjökul glacier on May 17. This is going to be the first time that I will be seeing and entering an ice cave. So what about claustrophobia? Will I be able to handle tight spots? I never tried before, so we’ll have to wait and see, I suppose.
But of course, before we get there, we just have to try and get some more photos of the Aurora. Not to mention we have a long night ahead of us, again.
If you haven’t read the last article, when we visted Vestrahorn, you can still find it here.

Post-processing series

Yes, this month too, there is another article continuing the Learning Adobe ® Lightroom Series. As I promised last month, we will have a look into some examples of what you can do with the RGB Tone Curves in Adobe ® Lightroom. Not only will we explore how to enhance the contrast with the RGB Tone Curve, but we will also find out how to make a photo look matte instead of glossy, and how to transform a Negative into a Positive (or vice versa) with the Tone Curve.
If you need to have a look again into the different switches of the Tone Curve Panel, you can find them explained here.
So stay tuned for this one on May 24, 2019.

Website updates

Some of you may have noticed this before, you can find calendars with photos that I have taken in your bookstore or at some online retailers. You can find an overview of all available calendars with my photos for 2020 on my website.

That’s it for now. I hope you enjoy the posts this month. As always, leave me a comment if you have any questions.
