1. shot and edited in May 2013

    The weather was fine and I wanted to shoot a short video in nature, so I grabbed my Rebel T2i with two lenses and went to a very nice nature reserve which is located only one hour away from my hometown.
    I spent aprox. 4 hours there.

    My buddy Vincenzo borrowed me his extreme wide angle 8mm Walimex lens.
    It was a huge pleasure to shoot with, especially in nature. The downside of that lens is the fact
    that its not really sharp at f3.5! you should go up to f.8 to get a nice sharp deep depth of field, but thats okay.
    Not designed for low light shoots. I also had my Canon 18-135mm with me.

    The lake is located at the border of the Netherlands. Its a beautiful place. Most people using the lake
    for fishing. I tried to get some tight shots with my Canon T2i while I was eated alive by Moskitos. I used my Canon 28mm f2.8 lens without any filters or something like that. In post I brought the saturation back and added some contrast.

    The music is from Rue du soleil. support them if you like the stuff
    hope you enjoy.

    I spent four days in Berchtesgaden, a small area near the border of Austria. Most of the time the weather was fine, so it was a 4 days shooting trip, non stop. I travelled from one location to the other together with my Rebel T2i, various lenses, a Velbon tripod and Igus slider. I decided to split all the footage into two different short Films. "Falls & Rocks" and "Lakes & Mountains". For this movie I decided to contact a young musician from my hometown to compose some epic music, to give my artform a new kick!

    lenses I used:

    Canon EF-S 70-300mm
    Canon EF-S 18-55mm
    Canon EF 50mm
    Canon EF 28mm

    I started this trip to Bavaria together with a bag of lenses, my Velbon Tripod and the Rebel T2i Body.

    last year I shot my short film "Die Isel" in Austria, but this time I wanted to see some nice places
    in my country, Germany! so I visited the area in and around Berchtesgaden, and found some amazing places
    which all featured in this and also the short: "Lakes & Mountains". To shoot video in nature is always a great pleasure for me, and I hope you guys can see it, in the video above.

    lenses I used:

    Canon EF-S 70-300mm
    Canon EF-S 18-55mm
    Canon EF 28mm
    Canon EF 50mm
