Starting wtith headshots

Hi, my Name is Philipp I'm a student in digital journalism in Cologne (GER).
Last year I upgraded my old camera to a Pentax K1 and for now I'm taking my first steps in headshot-photography.

This 2 Images are made between a shooting for an website relaunch at our university.

Abyss

Lately I've been focussing on mental health issues in my conceptual work. It's a topic that feels ripe for inspiration, and recently a member of my family has been going through some incredibly rough times due to their mental illness. This image is an exploration of that sinking and drowning feeling that is associated with depression and...

FOR SALE: Canon TS-E 45mm f/2.8

I bought this lens as part of my portraiture business, when I was into a lot of experimental, non-traditional looks. As I am no longer shooting portraits as much, I simply do not need this lens any longer and need to downsize my kit.

EX+ condition, perfect glass, no finish loss, some normal wear on the rubber ring. Includes caps, hood,...

Photographing Glass

My wife is an amazing glass artist, and has decided to build a portfolio. This is one of her smaller pieces.

I've been tasked with photographing the glass, and I gladly accept the challenge. I chose not to use a completely enclosed cube, opting instead for indirect lighting (to prevent glare) and lighting underneath to illuminate the...

Lexus LFA

Hi everyone. So this is my first time posting to the group. I've been lurking around for awhile seeing all the great work everyone does and just figured I may as well start contributing a little bit.

I work at a high end "boutique" used car dealership outside Detroit and every once in awhile we will get something insane like this LFA....

First attempt

I have been wondering about product photography for a while, and when I bought this as a Christmas gift, I decided to see if I could get something I liked before wrapping it up. This is shot with one tightly gridded speedlight held above the vase and just out of shot, and a softbox just under the lens to fill in the shadow. The backdrop is a...

Single speedlight on the beach

I was up early for my normal day job (supply/substitute primary school teacher), but the work was cancelled, and I thought - why not go down to the beach? Low tide coincided with early morning sun, and the weather was *very* windy, which meant waves. However, it also meant I couldn't use any sort of modifier on the flash or it would have blown...

Glaciers are awesome

I'm finishing up my trip to Alaska tomorrow. Finally got a comp I've been waiting on for weeks. The weather has been cold enough so I could walk across a lake to a specific spot I wanted to use. Then we finally had a good sunset so I could use it! I did a focus stack so everything would be sharp then mixed a few exposures to get the overall...

Helping a friend with her portfolio

I shot this outside in downtown San Jose using a softbox with speedlights. It was the first time I shot outside and was a bit nervous because there were lots of people around and many staring, wondering what was going on. Also a group of young dudes drinking beer and paying way too much attention. Anyway, it worked out fine and in the end got...
