Last weekend I visited WordCamp Frankfurt. It was actually my first WordCamp in Germany. (I still think it is funny, that it took me that long to attend one here.)
I met many awesome new people – and got to hang out with ones I have know for years, now. In my opinion this is what makes WordCamps so special: It is almost like going to a big family reunion, where you hang out and catch up.
Today I started a new photo blog.
In the past I used to take my camera everywhere, but in the last couple of months I stopped. Shooting daily can be hard and recently I left the camera at home more often than not.
It was my birthday this week and in the days leading up to it, I thought that this would be the perfect time to start taking pictures again and posting them regularly.
But the day came and went and I almost discarded the idea, until yesterday, when I read Luca’s blog post, in which he writes about his experiences with sharing photos online. (Go read it.) This inspired me to finally get started again myself.
So yesterday night I sat down, whipped up a fresh WordPress installation and hacked together a very minimal theme to go with it.
The premise (similar to Luca’s) is:
- One photo per day
- Black & white only
- One full year, no matter what
Without further ado, I present to you: florian.photo
After having received very positive feedback for my images of WordCamp Europe 2016, I thought I’d share some tips for covering events like this with a camera.
Once again an amazing WordCamp Europe lies behind us. This time the WordPress community met in Vienna, Austria.
As in the previous three years, here are a few of my favorite images.
Chiang Mai held its annual Flower Festival this weekend. Time to get out and do some street photography.
