Sigma 19mm F2.8 for Micro four Thirds

Lumix G2 with Sigma 19mm f2.8

A few days ago i got my new lens. Its the Sigma 19mm f2.8. Its my second fixed focal lenght for mft. I used before a fixed 19mm fixed focal lens or anything similiar like 20mm or so. I only had my kit lens which i could use on 19 mm but i hardly ever did. I have to say the the aperture of 2.8 helps alittle bit in low light but mot ver y much. I can say more about it qhen i will use this lens in aconcert shoot,  thats why i got this lens.

Recently i went out and made some Photos with it.  I have edited two of them so far, which i want to show you so you can see it for yourself how the sigma 19mm performs. Both shots are edited and the first one is a HDR.

[Concert Photography] An cafe Munich 11.112012

I was at the An Cafe Concert which took place on the 11.11.12 in Munich, to make Photos during the Concert. I was only allowed to do Photos during the first 3 songs. At first you might think this is too short, but when you are doing the Photos, its longer when you expect it to be.

I didnt make any Post here recently becouse was busy and had to edit the Photos. Now i send the Photo to Ganshin. When they tell me which Photos i can use, i will show them on my Page. PLease do not upload then the Photos anywhere else and link my site instead. If you like the Photos much and want me to make Phtoos for you, concatct me then. After they give me the ok or the Photos,  i will make an  longer Article about Concert Photography with some tip and some review about the Concert itself.

Feel free to ask me, if you have already some Questions about the Concert, Concert Photography or anything else.

If not i try to make it better next time, like everyone im always learning to be a better Photographer.

Here's the Photo:

[Panning Photography] Driving Car's [Dynamic Photo]

I was going outside to Practice and make my Photography better. I was passing by a street where a lot of Cars where driving by. I thought that this would be Perfect of a dynamic Shot of a driving car. So i made Panning Photos of two driving Cars. To achieve the result i  used a high aperture so  i could us e longer Exposure. To get a similar result like in the Photo you have to Focus on the car and Pan on the car or anything that is your moving subject. Because then the Subject will be in Focus and Sharp but the background will look like it  would be moving and it will give you a dynamic feel and the feel of the Speed of the Subject. If you want to make Photos like this i suggest to Zoom in to the Subject or to use even a Telephoto lens . Because when you zoom in more, the subject want move that  fast and it will be easier to pan and the Background will even look more dynamic. try out some different settings like and higher aperture until you know which settings you have to use for Photos. Don't worry if your first Photos wont be that great. If you try to shoot more Photos you will learn your settings and the Photo will look great.

So here are the two Photos:

Short Movie/Video: Silence

I dont only like to take Photos with my Lumix G2. I also love making Videos with. I filmed some scenes in the Olympic Park in Munich and edited it at home. Hope you all like my result. Heres the Video:

The Photo which appears in the ending Credits, was also taken by me. It is along exposure Photo with an Film look, which was  created in Post Processing. The Photo was shot on a Gorillapod tripod. Its Inportant that you use a tripod for Photos like this and a shutter release if you have one. If you dont have one make sure your camera takes the Photo a few seconds later after you release the shutter becouse every Movement can make the Photos useless. Here you can see Photo :

Passing by

Thank you very much for your attention, If oyu have any question about the Video or the PIcture or anything else just ask me.

Concert Photography [Concert: Anli Pollicino in Munich on 22.07.12]

This is something i really wanted to write about . One thing in Photography im very interested about. Concerts are one of the hardest things to do in Photography. If it is done good, it can really look amazing.
For making good concert Photos, it would be great to have a good Camera. Your best bet would be to have a camera with good ISO. I didn't have a po DSLR to shoot the Concert. I only had a Lumix G2 with the 45mm f 1.8. But for the beginning in concert Photography that's enough. It would be only good to have a good  DSLR if you shoot many Shows.
Maybe you want to know , how you can shoot at concerts if its not allowed to and if you need access to do so. I first thought i would never get access to do so, but even i did. Just ask the management of a Band,, and maybe they they give you access to do so. First try to ask Bands which play in smaller venues, because they are mostly about when someone wants t Photograph in their concerts.

The show I Photographed was the A (ACE) x Anli Pollicino show on 22.07.12 in Munich. There were playing two Bands. At first the band A (ACE) was playing. It was a really fun show and so it was really fun to Photograph it, but also hard because there was no Special area for the Photographer and there were so many People in front of the Stage, so you couldn't move at all.. No w i cant show you the Photos of the A (ACE) concert because i had to send the Photos to the management and i have to wait until they answer me and let them upload me  The Second Band playing on this day, was Anli Pollicino .This show was also amazing but a little bit easier to shoot because some People went behind after the first show, so you could move  a bit after some songs. The management of this Band dint say i i'm not allowed to upload the Photos until they give m the OK, so i think i ca show them to you . The good thing was that I wasn't limited too a number of songs , so i could shoot during the whole show. But one important thing is, try not too take too many Photos. Because at first it could disturb the people around you and your camera will be exploited more.

Many concert Photographers just use the high fps of their camera and just click their shutter and then they hope to capture a good Photo. I'm not  fan of doing so. My way is to analyze and study the Songs and Movements of the Artist before the Show and then to try to Capture the Moment. But even i make more Photos during one second, but sometimes you have to.
Now i tell you something about the settings i used. At first, the most important thing is to shoot in Raw, because then you can even shoot some ISO higher and denoise it in Post later and it looks still very good. In raw i can shoot up to ISO 2000 with my Lumix G2 and i don't have to worry about nose. But i have to admit , its still not the best camera to shoot concerts with, but the quality of the Pictures is really good. If you are looking for a good concert camera, try to get a camera with high ISO capabilities and  a lens with high aperture
Now i show you some of the Pictures i did during the Concert of Anli Pollicino in Munich on 22.07.12
i don't show you all of them . If you want to see all of them visit my Facebook or my flickr account.

Here are some of the Photos:

Architecture Photograhy

Today i went out to make some Photos. I decided to make some Architecture Photos. I made some i like. As a foretaste i Show You one Photo in two versions. The first one is in Color the second in B&W, i like both versions very much. It Was the first time , that i went out to onlny Photograh some Architecture Buildings. IM Happy that i went out to do this, becouse i wanted always to make some good architecture Photos, becouse they amaze me very often.

Before i didnt know where to photograph  Buildings like this, so i didnt do it.  I live in Munich  so i thought to do some research these time and to look where these Buildings are. After doing the research  I found a very good site about architekture in mUNich, with Infos about many amazing looking buildings in Munich, even with the adres. So i choosed one of the Buildings to Photograph it today. After doing the Photos, i realized that i liked it very much to Photograh Buildings and architecture. I had much fun while doing theses Photos. Not everybody may like it to Photograph Architecture, but today I found out that I definitely do.

I put here the link for the site about architecture in Munich for my German readers and for everyone who wants to check it out:

Now i show you one of the Photos i made in a Color Version and in B&W. More of the Photos i made will be postet here in my blog if I find more Photos I like and when I finally  edit them. So here are the Photos:

Architecture: Building 01 Color

Architecture: Building 01 B&W

HDR with the Lumix G2

One of my favorite subjects to shoot are HDR Photos. Many people i asked said that you have to like them  or to hate. Some said that my photos you have to haid or truly to love and there isnt something in beetween what do you think? leave a comment if you think like that or different. Here i show you  a New HDR Photo i made. It was shot with my lumix G2 at iso-100 and 14mm.
