Still life photography

Hallo Leute,

so for art class we have an assignnment and it is called still life. However, we have to look closely at our environment and find stuff which already is arranged. The assignment actually motivated me a lot more to get to know my camera (I am only at the beginning of it for sure) and try out many things with it. Last Friday I went with my dad to his workshop and I had my camera with me because of another thing. However, I found some nice things there and tried my best to capture them. It was also my first time shooting in RAW.
I am not to sure about that. Still trying to figure out how to edit RAW photos in the best way possible :)

There acutally was another empty room behind my dad's garage and it was almost completely empty expect for a shelf and on this shelf were those bottles. It just screamed to be photographed and it actually looks arranged.

Now that I see it. I probably should have focuse more on one of the things inside the bag.
However, I guess you learn with time so I will hopefully do it better the next time : )
I wasn't able to take a lot of picutres because we actually needed the camera for something else but hopefully I can use one of those for my assignment because especially the second on doesn't look like something I would normally hand in. :D

Tschüss :)

How are you?

Hallo Leute,

How are you? Today I wanted to talk about a topic that got especially important when I lived in Canada but is also important in Germany and really everywhere in the world.

When I used to live in Canada I used to go shopping a lot and every time I entered a store someone who workerd would come up to me and asked me how I was. I am sure that this is something eeryone has experienced who was shopping in North America. So every time I was asked that question I would automatically answer "I'm good" or something similiar. But I noticed pretty fast that it wasn't about how I felt. I am sure that the person who works there was not interested in my emotions and surely wouldn't really care if I was sad. The question was more a sign of politness but I felt very often that I didn't have a choice and I felt like I was lying sometimes because there doesn't exist another answer than a positive one.
So what I want is that the next time you ask someone how they feel. Actually ask because care about them or because you actually want to know it. Don't just say it like "Oh hello how are you?" You can just say something like "How are YOU? I hope you are feeling alright?" and it makes such a big difference for that person.

Tschüss :)

Leistungskurse - Choosing main courses

Hallo Leute,

I soon have to choose my two main subjects for the next two (and also the last two) years of high school and it's driving me nuts!
I am sure that one of them (and I hope that it will the A-Course) will be English. If it will be my A-Course I will go England or Ireland for the class trip which would be awesome.
But my B-Course? I just don't know. My problem? It surely isn't that there aren't any other subjects that I am interested in taking but there are just too many. Anyway I narrowed it down to Art, History or Politcs and Economis. Just don't know about it and I don't want to get frustrated over it as well because I know that in a few years it probably doesn't matter that much.
I would love to take art but I just don't know if I am creative enough.
I would love to take history but I heard that they have sooo much to learn. On the other hand the teacher will be great.
I would love to take Politics and Economics but I just don't know what to do with it in the future.

This was a completely useless post ... exactly what I created this blog for! :)

Tschüss :)
