cold, but sunny

my dear readers and followers,
i am very sorry for not being very active on my blog recently, but there are a lot of things going on in my life. i hope you’ll forgive me ;)

i took all those pictures last week on a very cold and sunny winter morning after a long period of dark and grey skies. i think you can imagine how happy i was about that break in the weather :)

weekly photo challenge: let there be light!

because of a lack of time i missed some of the last few challenges, but this week’s theme is the perfect chance for me to re-enter the weekly photo challenge :)

light-3 light-4 light-7 light-8i took those pictures the same day as the pictures in my last post, on a cold and sunny winter morning in vienna.

morning sun

now it’s official… winter is here. on monday this week the temperatures sank noticeable and it snowed the first time this season.
you can imagine that all this came along with really bad weather, i didn’t see the sun for a while. so i was more than happy about a few hours of sunshine in the morning just the other day.

workshop: working with a detachable flash unit

i had another workshop at my school on sunday last week. we already had one where we took portraits with the studio flash unit, this time we only worked with our detachable flash units. i always had some difficulties when using my flash, so i was very happy about the opportunity to learn how to use it right. i specially liked the diffused light you get when flashing against a white curtain or against a wall. i hope you also like it :)

fun with the ferris wheel

when i took pictures at the prater a while ago, i also took some shots of the small ferris wheel (here’s the big one). i like this one a lot because it is very colourful and you can play around with different periods of exposure, what creates fun effects on the wheel.
