East Tyrol - A Picture Book

Quite late but here they are, the pictures of my trip from Austria. In the beginning July we spent there one week and it was amazing. Alps, snow covered peaks, dense coniferous forests and beautiful valleys. This article shows you the best pictures of my stay made with the Nikon D850, D750 and the best aerial shots from the DJI Phantom 4 Pro.

milky way previewA Heartfelt Wish: A Milky Way Panorama

It’s done! There are some milestones on my photography-to-do-list and this is on of them: a panorama of the milky way. Everyone who knows my guide for star photography will say you already did this but this photo is much much more intense and impressing. East Tyrol offers endless possibilites to capture stunning photos of the alps but this is by far my best shot from there so it get an own article right here. And stay tuned for my other pictures from Austria.




Nikon D850 - 120 fps Slow Motion Test

It's get technical again. During our shoot of our short film we had the chance to test the slow motion capabilities of the Nikon D850. So we filmed the warmup of our actor and are satisfied what we could capture. This material was internally recorded at 120 fps at 1080p and is automatically scaled down to 30 fps for playback. The D850 was mounted on a DJI Ronin and the lens we used for this was the Nikkor 24-70 2.8 ED VR. You get a super smooth slow motion with this function, but unfortunately not in UHD. But all in all it is a very useful result. For color correction and grading I used Davinci Resolve 14 Studio.

A huge thank you to Redefinition Records that we can use their music!

STILL BELIEVE - Our Participation for the My Rode Reel 2018 Competiton

We are finished! And we are proud of our work! We put a lot of time and heart in this project. After the last two weeks of editing, cutting, coloring and grading we finished our short film for the My Rode Reel 2018 short film competition. And of course we got the required behind the scenes also finished, more about this later.


We put everything we know in this film and used every piece of equipment we have. The surprise of this film is the ending and we hope you are suprised when you watch it. On the other hand we tried to create a classic cinematic atmosphere in 24 frames per seconds and a moody look of the image and we combined this with a modern UHD resolution. We think the technical parts, especially the visual work has succeeded. It was our first tryout to record sound to the pictures and we had always in mind that the this competition is sponsored by microphone manufacturer. So we decided us to concentrate on a clean recording and not to overdone this area. We just adjusted the volume of the single scenes to the master volume. No frequencies were changed or any other effects. All in all we could gather a lot of new experiences in every aspect of filmmaking.

You will find the behind the scenes when you click on read more plus the credits and the equipment we used for our film.
