the butter on my bread
My camera is still a great friend, even though I am not a professional photographer anymore. Ever since I went back to bike travelling (I had not been doing that for 15 years), travel photography arose naturally. It is part of the journey.
I can tell – for myself – that it takes time and dedication, not just the shooting, also the postproduction. For example for the picture above I left my tent really early, then spend lots of time to edit. All is in service of inspiring viewers by transmitting my experience.
A simple edit example below, done in Adobe’s Lightroom. A straight out of camera image cannot always capture the both refined and subjective observation of the eye.
