Looking back

There will be no new photos here today, but instead let’s have a look at my photography beginnings. These photos were taken right as I started with photography and some of them are even older than the first post on this blog.

Not that they are any good, they are over-processed like crazy, but it’s interesting to have a look at ones past and see how one’s work evolved.

Very old photos

These photos are all from 2010, taken with my first DSLR, the 450D. It was a great camera, but one really has to know at least something about photography to use it. I still remember the day I switched to manual focusing, how all my photos got better right away :)

One interesting fact here is, that almost all of these were taken handheld. Now I almost never take landscape photos anymore from hand. Tripod all the time.

3:2 wallpapers

I see quite a lot of people visiting my blog while searching for Surface Pro 4 wallpapers. So today I have for you few more wallpapers specifically sized for the screen of that device. And even the newer Surface Pro (2017) has the same resolution. And if you have other device with a 3:2 aspect ratio screen, they will fit you device to.

New Surface wallpapers

All these wallpapers are 2736×1824 pixels in size and can be downloaded with all the other wallpapers from the wallpapers page here.

Updates to wallpapers page

I have been slowly updating the formatting on multiple popular pages on the blog, mostly the top photography spots ones. But today, the time has come for an update for the wallpapers page.

So you may find a bit of a new formatting, aligned with the rest of the blog. Also, since the number of wallpapers got quite big over time, I split the page into two. The 2736×1824, 3440×1440 and 3840×1200 resolution wallpapers are where they used to be, and the other, 1600×1200 and 1920×1200 resolution wallpapers, can be now found on this page. Should help with the loading speed quite a lot :)

New 21:9 – 3440×1440 wallpapers

And so it’s not just new formatting, here are also new 21:9 wallpapers at 3440×1440 for you. As always, you can get them from the wallpapers page, they are free to download and share. Just if you post them somewhere, please link back to this blog and don’t use them commercially without my permission.

Packing for a trip

And I’m off to Dubai tomorrow, so just finished packing. I do hope I have everything I need. So there will be no real updates here for the next week, as I’m not taking my Surface with me. I have quite a lot planed anyway, so I don’t expect any time to edit. But you are welcome to follow me on my FB page and Instagram, where I will try and post some behind the camera stuff.

What’s in the bag

So while punting this together, I thought I show you what I plan to use. Just the main stuff, not all the little things, as that would make for a very long list :)

As you can see, I’m using three cameras. My main camera will be the Canon 5D mark IV. Then there is the Sony a7R with Metabones III adapter, which I use as a backup. And in the corner you can see the Sony RX100 that I like to use for the behind the camera stuff and some quick snaps. I prefer it to a mobile phone, as the quality is better and it has a F1.8 aperture.

On the lens side, going from widest to telephoto, there are the following: Canon 8-15 F4 Fisheye, Laowa 12mm f2.8 Zero-D, Canon 16-35mm f2.8, Canon 17mm TSE, Canon 24-70mm F2.8 and Canon 70-200mm F2.8 IS II. Yes, that’s a lot of lenses, but I like to vary them, as they give different views. And of course I don’t carry everything at all times :) I would take fewer lenses, like for instance leaving the 16-35 behind as I have a 17 and 24-70, but, I cant put filters on the 17, so I can’t. And so on :)

The last thing visible here in that small Vanguard pouch is the Nisi V5 pro filter holder, with a reduction for the Laowa 12mm lens, standard lenses and a polarizer filter. Yes, the filter holder has a very nice leather case from Nisi, but I find it’s needlessly big.

Btw. This bag is the Lowepro Vertex 200 AW.

Packing for a trip.
