First shots with the Nikon D850

First shots with the Nikon D850

The Nikon D850…. The long wait has ended… I heard roomers more than a year ago that Nikon should bring a successor to the Nikon D810. As a D600 and D610 owner, and traveling with Dominik who pushed me to get a decent camera, I wanted to wait for the arrival of the Nikon D850. After the roomers had set this summer, I did a pre-order at prophot.ch  for the next generation D810. And soon the date of October 7th was…

StarTrail over Arosa

StarTrail over Arosa

I had a chance over the Easter-break to take some Star-trail pictures over the sky of Arosa. I was not really prepared, as I assumed that the weather would be bad… So I left my Self-Timer at home, and I had to use the built in timer of the D600/D610. As I’ve never used it before, and the Nikon manual not really describing it’s used for dummies, I managed to only take 15min captures 🙁 I hope I figure out how…

New “Galleria Javascript Gallery3 Slideshow” plugin

New “Galleria Javascript Gallery3 Slideshow” plugin

Hi Guys, I found a “new” Gallery3 Worpress plugin called “Galleria Javascript Gallery3 Slideshow”. it creates these nice sliedshows into your WP page. The installation is simple, but to use it, I find it pretty “manual”. the main issue is to find out your Gallery3 album umnber. As I’m also using the WPGallery3 plugin I can generate code which displays the album number… I had to remove the plugin from the frontpage, as the loading times where just too long…

How to create a Star-Trail image

Hi Guys, Let me explain the process on how to create such a star-trail: Weather? You need a dark night. Make sure that there is no Moon shinging into your lense, else it could look like this… Aim for a clear sky, some clouds could look fancy… try it out! Aim for a “dry” sky, which means that the moister in the air should be low, go to the mountains or shoot in winter… Location? Find a spot for your…

Arosa by night….a cold night

Arosa by night….a cold night

Hi Guys, I was out in Arosa on the Obersee to shoot a new version of my Startrail image with my D600. It was a cold clear night in Arosa when I headed out to shoot the pictures. I use the my Sigma 15mm F2,8 EX DG Diagonal-Fisheye lens on the D600, which I had freshly cleaned by Nikon (for free!!! THANK you Nikon in Egg), the try pod and the timer to shoot about 60 one minute exposure images…

Waterfalls in Arosa

Waterfalls in Arosa

Hi Guys, We were in Arosa during our holidays. There were so many people on the slopes, we escaped for a nice snow-shoe walk in the area of Maran. The amazing tranquillity in the fresh snowbound hills with the wondweful shining sun… just marvalous. Enjoy the view… On our way home we passed by some small waterfalls, where I’ve taken a series of images and stichted them together to a HDR image. I hope you like the flow…
