Thanks for stopping by.
I am a self taught amateur photographer, I was born in Gemany and live now in New Zealand. In recent years photography has become both a creative and emotional outlet for me. I got into DSLR photography shortly after I moved to New Zealand - at this stage I wanted more control over my pictures, not just taking 'automatic shots'.
Now I'm thinking: 20% gear, 50% composition, 30% post-processing and the last 60% is a good eye and good luck. ;-)
"Consulting the rules of composition before taking a photograph, is like consulting the laws of gravity before going for a walk."
I'm a big fan of Linux and Open Source, for my RAW files I use Darktable and/or Gimp and for vector graphics Inkscape.
