The mysterious vectorscope

For a couple of years, I am very much interested in color grading. I am fascinated by colors and play with color. But instead of just giving a scene a specific look, I also want to look into color correction. The process of fixing skin tones for example.

Refresh your French

I love the playful easiness of French women, their imperfect, almost randomly looking style and the self-confidence they have in their appeal. It's a French thing that allows women to look and feel sexy while being strong and confident, on eye level with men. If you want to work with them, however, I recommend you to learn their language.

What's in my bag 2020

A few years ago, I was asked to tell the readers of the whatsinmybag.com website, what gear I take on the road. The site doesn't exist anymore, but I really liked the idea. So, here is a quick update of what I am currently travelling with.

How to get glowing skin

In nude photography you will often see shiny skin. It's like a visual touch of an oil massage, I guess. At least, it looks good and many people have already offered me to be the body oil assistant. But there is no such job.

Dear lingerie designers

Labeling a piece of underwear with its size and type of fabric is something important to do. You also need to add washing instructions. And another label for the country of production is popular as well. You might want to add your logo, too. But have you ever though about the comfort of wearing these labels on your skin?

Why we don't need presets

More and more people are offering presets and styles with which you can apply a certain look to your images. Even I was selling mine a few years ago. Here's why I believe it's better not to use presets and why I stopped doing it.

Yesterday my Profoto Connect for Sony arrived. It's a wireless flash trigger which is compatible with my new Profoto B10 flash using their so-called Air technology. Unfortunately I hadn't read the small print.

Selling my Profoto Studio Gear

For around 15 years, I am using Profoto light equipment and their stuff never let me down. Personally, I know better what I need now (just one small flash head like the B10), but if you're photographing in a studio situation, you might want to get some of my used stuff.

Sony ECM-W1M vs ECM-B1M

When filiming interviews like I do for Playboy sometimes, you need to record the voice of the Playmate properly. The build in microphone won't do. I checked out the new shotgun microphone from Sony that just came out.

Recommended settings Sony a7RIV

A few days ago, I received my new Sony camera. I am upgrading from the a7RII, therefore the a7 R IV feels amazing. It took me three full days to read the manual and to go through all settings in detail. I felt like learning photography from scratch, but luckily that was only my feeling after reading so many technical information. To save you some time, I will speak about the advantages I see in the new camera and tell you my menu settings and how I customized the buttons.

Yes, no, maybe or why I got the Sony A7 RIV

The Sony A7 RIV was announced mid of July but the echo was divided. The simple reason was that the new camera came much earlier than expected and the new features shocked people who had just bought the RIII model. I placed my order right after the press conference, though.
