"A good photo is not confined to its frame"

Interview with Vera Dondelinger, food blogger from Heidelberg, Germany

Optimally selecting the depth of field


Image sharpness is one of the most important creative tools for photographers. However, what is in sharp focus or out of focus in an image is not only decided by the focus itself. The aperture also has a significant influence in this area. The aperture controls the depth of field, or in other words the zone of spatial depth, in which objects in an image appear sharp to the human eye.

Pan-American Highway Road Trip


Yes! Let's just pack our things and go. One month, 6 months, a year? Everyone's had thoughts like this at one time or another and nobody can say that Germans don't know how to travel. It's with good reason that we are not only known as the "World Champions of Hearts" (because of the World Cup in 2006) but we are also the world champions when it comes to travelling.

Perfect exposure with a graduated filter


Rocky, steep and fairly strenuous – we worked up quite a sweat on the climb up to the Teufelsloch (Devil's hole) near Altenahr. And of course we couldn't leave home without all of our photography equipment. Alongside a single-lens reflex camera and the high speed Tamron SP 24-70mm F/2.8 Di VC USD, we also had a graduated filter in our rucksack on this trip. The graduated filter allows you to reduce high contrasts between the sky and landscape. Ideal for taking photographs on sunny days when the dynamic range of the camera is not sufficient to capture details in highlights and shadows with one single exposure.
