Editing btconf

In the process of editing my #btconf images from earlier this week:

I did take 1,641 images in total. 805 were left after the first pass, 406 after the second. Now down to 219 photos. I usually aim for something in the range of 150 or so images. Getting rid of the last 50, is always the hardest part.

Final thing after that will be sequencing. I mostly go with chronological here, but sometimes, moving a couple of images around makes for a more interesting flow.

Stay tuned!

It’s been quite a while since I published one of my WordCamp photo recap posts! I had to look it up: It was for WCEU 2018. Crazy, how time flies!

beyond moments

I recently started a new project, where it is my goal to create a photo book with pictures I took over the last five years at WordCamp Europe.

This is part of an ongoing quest to (re)define (and also refine) my photography. There is this urge to create more of it – and not only digitally.

So, because I am really happy with the images I took at beyond tellerrand conference two weeks ago, I went ahead and created a small photo book, which I called beyond moments.

While the aforementioned quest is still ongoing, I know for sure, that I really enjoy documenting events like this. Can’t wait for WordCamp Europe next month!

I visited beyond tellerrand conference in Düsseldorf for the first time this week. Marc Thiele and his team put up a really great event, with some truely inspiring talks! Find my favorite talks and images after the click.
