Some airtraveling pictures that I have shot between 2007 and 2012. I had to fly to my working place on every Monday and Friday back. I flew more than 400 times in this 5 years. I bought a camera and shot half-automated at least 30,000 ugly pictures within the first two years. They were very, very bad because I couldn’t photograph at all and had to use some automatic functions of the camera. I threw them all away except only four (!) lucky strikes and started all over again. First I started reading books about photography and set back all camera functions to manual, even the flash and the autofocus. I set up a little private studio at home and learned a little about lighting, exposure, light temperature, composition, etc. Soon it was becoming more and more interesting. The 3000 pictures from number 30,000 to number 33,000 within the second two years were becoming slowly more and more beautiful and the 300 hundred pictures from 33,000 to 33,300 (approxiamtely) in the fith year they were what I allways wanted: to be able to express my thoughts with my pictures. This is a collection of them (copyright only with my explicit written expression).
All pictures you will see here are as they were shot and nothing is manipulated with the use of programs like Photoshop. Nothing against the art of manipulating pictures manually to create new impressions, I don’t like this at my own pictures, that’s all.
