In the meantime, my style of photography changed or I should say my preferences became more complex (my favorite lens today is not a wide angle lens) but this is how I started – and with pictures of cats ;). Today I will show you some of my impressions from Frankfurt using wide angle lenses. Some pictures are from “my early days of photography” and I wouldn’t make some shots in the same way nowadays but still there are lots of Frankfurt wide-angle pictures I like.
The cameras I initially used were Sony NEX Models, today I shoot with the Olympus O-MD E-M1 and the PEN E-P5. These cameras are good choices if you don’t like to walk around with a tripod (and that’s usually the case with me). The build-in stabilizer in these cameras prevent blurred pictures and the digital level gauge helps with the correct alignment. My favorite lens on the Sony NEX was the Sony SEL1018, a great lens with optical stabilization (because the Sony NEX models don’t have a stabilizer). Currently I use the Olympus M.Zuiko 9-18 for landscape and architecture or sometimes I also like to use a fisheye lens like the Samyang / Rokinon / Wallimex 7.5mm (all identical in construction). You can take a look at my photo gear to have a complete overview about the equipment I used and what currently is in my camera bag. Let’s taka a look at some pictures from my adopted home town:
Inner city with Japan Tower, Commerzbank and Maintower
View over Frankfurt from the Maintower
New European Central Bank (under construction)
Parks and Botanic Garden
I hoped you enjoyed the short voyage through Frankfurt. Besides the city I currently live in I wrote a photo story about my hometown, Wilhelmshaven – take a look!
