3 days in Berlin – Mitte

  • April 27, 2016

I had heard the Friedrichstrasse shopping center offered interesting photo possibilities. I had to check and I found this: Right next to it is the Gendarmenmarkt place with its French and German churches that I dreamt of seeing again since my first visit about twenty years before. What's better than a flower pot to brighten up buildings?! The Deutscher Dom is also interesting to visit: A pretty graphic start then. Next episode with a night stroll very soon ;)

A Belgian Eiffel tower

No matter how much I like the Eiffel tower, I wish I had less occasions to pay her a visit. A few months after wearing the French flag, she dressed up with the Belgium colours. I took these photos one month ago.

3 days in Berlin – the eclipse

  • April 20, 2016

In this article of March the 25th 2015, I promised to show you the photos I had just taken in the German capital "soon". I don't know what you expect with "soon" but I was certainly not thinking "in a year"! Unfortunately, I am even later with other subjects but "better late than never"! Let's start with the beginning, that's on March the 20th that I flew towards the East, date of a solar eclipse. A little disappointed of being in the air at the time of the eclipse, I was hoping to land before the end of the show, in spite of my failure to find specific glasses. I did and actually I was lucky...

Evil Dust @ La Citrouille

After years of concert photography, I got a little tired of it, but when my mates start a new band and have their first gig, I find myself right in front of the stage with a camera stuck on my face.  Can't help it! Here is Evil Dust at La Citrouille (Saint Brieuc) on the 16th January 2016. PS: If you check the videos on their Facebook page, you might be able to spot me ;)

Make a bokeh filter

  • April 6, 2016

I have been wanting to try shaped bokeh for a while. The new year was a good reason to actually do it for my greeting card. I will show you here how I proceeded. First of all, what is bokeh? It's the blur in the background of a photograph. You get it by focusing on a foreground with a wide depth of field. Sometimes, when there is a source of light in the background, the lense diaphragm gives colourful spots. It's the shaped of these spots that you can change thanks to a filter in front of the lens. For this, you will need: a cutting mat thick black paper a pencil an eraser scissors an...
