My name is Kai
Thank you for your appreciation and kind comments.
I am very happy if others like the pictures I have uploaded here.
Taking pictures is for me exclusively about the images as such, the impression, less about about the technique used.
Since I only take pictures from time to time as a hobby and being not very firm in theory of taking and presenting them, there is actually one point of interest. I would like to know where the idea comes from that each photo must be provided with explanatory text or where exactly it was shot. For my part, I have decided not to follow this obligation. I am unfortunately not a curator and I mostly lack the creativity for prose.
For whom it generates anger, I would like to apologise for this apparent wrongdoing and my ignorance of this rule in the hope that it is not as terrible as it has occasionally been reflected in some comments.
For me, photography is a hobby that should be fun and not a competition to the death.
inspiring statements ...
"Das Rätsel der Kunst ist, das wir nicht wissen was Kunst ist!"
"Kunst die man erklärt ist langweilig"
Die Tatsache, dass eine – im konventionellen Sinn – technisch fehlerhafte Fotografie gefühlsmässig wirksamer sein kann als ein technisch fehlerloses Bild, wird auf jene schockierend wirken, die naiv genug sind zu glauben, dass technische Perfektion den wahren Wert eines Fotos ausmacht.
Bei ungünstigen Lichtverhältnissen oder unfotogenen Motiven ist es eine Kunst, nicht den Auslöser zu drücken.
Anselm Easton Adams:
Twelve good photos in one year is a good yield.
Thorsten von Overgaard:
When are you a photographer?
That seems to be a question many ask themselves, and in my opinion they generally ask too much and for too long.
A photographer is one that takes pictures…
The first one that has to recognise and like your own photography, is your self. It should be worthwhile to follow and realise your own goals first and foremost. Don't wait for approval, praise or sympathy. Just get on with what it is that you feel you are meant to do.
