The Photoadventure team is optimistic. The next Photoadventure will take place 12 to 13 November 2022 at the Pyramide in Vösendorf/Vienna. We are also optimistic and - as things stand at the moment - are taking part with two seminars:

  • Warum Makrofotos so oft misslingen (why macro photos fail so often)
  • Komposition und Bildwirkung in der Fotografie (the message of an image)

In addition, we are showing new works in the exhibition "Ein Blick in die Natur". On the one hand, there will be panoramas or details of typical Austrian landscapes (e.g. the Dachstein massif, Mühlviertel, Wildalpen) and on the other hand tiny details taken through a microscope (e.g. various motifs of mountain pine (needle, wood)).


Recently I gave a presentation (online) on embedding with PEG (polyethylene glycol) at the "Mikroskopischen Gesellschaft Wien". Here you can find the presentation (only available in German).




As photographers, we are used to reacting flexibly to situations. Many of the world's famous shots have been taken this way. But there are also shots that require careful and possibly elaborate preparation and efforts. The 2022 workshops' offer something of both aspects. They are already open for registration. Individual workshops will be "fine-tuned" in the coming weeks.



In addition to landscape photography, this year I was particularly interested in the subject of wood. Inspired by a wood preparation seminar by Bernd Miggel, I dived deaper into this topic and have been fascinated ever since. When cutting wood, there are standard cutting planes (transverse, radial and tangential). For this compilation, I have chosen only tangential cuts. I also defined the term "wood" a bit broader and also cut woody material (e.g. the hops). The sections were stained with different colors (e.g. three-part staining according to Robin Wacker, consisting of arcridine red, acriflavine and astra blue). All images are stacked and stitched.

How woodcuts are made can be read in this article for MGW (in German). 


Golden autumn! In preparation for the workshop "Naturfotografie im Herbst", I am currently on a preliminary excursion in the "Ennstal". It is typical autumn weather (inversion weather), vallies are full of fog, but above the sun is shining. However, if you want to photograph water or better waterfalls, an overcast sky is more advantageous. I have compiled a small gallery from pictures taken in the last few days. 




Corona has led to some necessary changes in this year's program. Workshops can now be offered online if there is interest. In this case the focus will be on microscope imaging.

For next year the first dates are already fixed. There are - as usually - workshops, which take place in Schloß Weinberg and there are also excursions to interesting places in Austria.
