The reason for creating this album is to do a ‘follow up’ on the things I look at, around in Cologne during the time i’m here. I have bought a bike, so now I just have get early up and experince the city in “golden hour”.
This time I’ll go a bit deeper in everything I do around photography by playing with new compositions and light, more storytelling and then the graphic work on this website afterwards. Simply because I now have the time to do it. This is a way of experience the cityscapes when the golden hour is putting everything together in a nice scenery and use it later as memories for all time.
This collection of images does also include photographie from the “neighbourhood” of Cologne: Düsseldorf, Amsterdam, Antwerpen, Münster, Monchau, Aachen, Bonn, Szecksard, Maastricht.
As an new approach to photography, I gradually try to ignore all the technical camera-setting-stuff, and focus more on what im photographing in terms of storytelling and composition. I’ve used many years on practicing the technical stuff, and I will of cause not just forget it, but try not to make it overrule the way im capturing the images. In technically stuff I mean sharpness, depth-of-field, ISO, focal length, white balance, exposure bla bla bla and stuff like that. With this approach it's more important to capture the right moment rather than have the total-right and perfect setting - because then the special, great smile and expression of a person is gone.
