A Cam, a Car, an App – GLE 43 Coupe (1 of 2)

No specific goal, just cruising along look for nice locations to get a beautiful shot. And I am just getting back into the mood to play around in Photoshop in the past couple of month, which I really fell off of for the years before that. Anyway, hope you enjoy these and yes, it’s been a while I shot and posted these on Instagram… shame on me, but I am catching up now! Promise!

Pure Gold – Franzi

With the wonderful Franzi. I have had this idea in my head and I still need to work on it a bit until I get closer to the full idea though. I really like the outcome of this though. Love the idea of the brush-strokes on skins, when different textures, colors and so on. Funny enough last year I shot something similar to this too, which I will post soon-ish here, too. So keep an eye on the Blog.

Let it POP! – Model Photography

More of Franzi! I normally don’t do a lot of editing outside of Lightroom and I hate beauty retouching beyond some very basic stuff, but sometimes it’s just fun to play around with Photoshop and test the limits of Lightroom and so on. Hope you enjoy these as much as I do.

Griffith Observatory – Travel Photography

The Observatory must be one of my favourite places on the planet. If I had one wish to choose a place to live, this might be it. Overlooking the vast expanse of Los Angeles, the wonderful Architecture and Griffith Park surrounding it. So here are two older and one new photo from my most recent trip to LA. The two old ones I reedited, as I really did not like the the old editing anymore. Also, as you might have seen, you only see LA and not the Observatory, but it was shot from there. So ok, a couple of…

Cadillac CTS-V at Lake Mead

Taking this best from LA to Vegas and back was so much fun. Such a cool car. I wish we had more time with it, but the time we had I think we used well. and going to Lake Mead and get a couple of shots after or before visiting Hoover Dam. The weather didn’t really give me the mood I was looking for that day, so black and white was the best option I felt. Well still feel. High Contrast, not really interested in showing too much detail besides the car. Even though it is there. This was shot…

RE_EDIT_002

Part two of RE_EDIT. This time with a portrait. Here we have the original RAW file straight out of camera. This is the original edit I did back in 2011. And here we have the RE_EDIT version. I am very happy with it. It’s fresh, different than the original and it all is just a great way to give some older photos some new life and also train yourself more and learn from what you have done before. Here is a link to the RAW file, just like last week, for you to try your hands on, if you like….

RE_EDIT_001

A new series of Videos where I re-edit older photos of mine and walk you through the process. Not only on the technical side. Check it out, let me know what you think. Let me know if you have questions and make sure to check out the link to the RAW files for you to download and see what you would do with the photo. If you like. 🙂 Remember it’s for personal use only of course. So this is the RAW HDR file that I started this RE_EDIT with. This is the originally in 2011 published photo which I…

Apple Store Cologne City – Pre Opening

Today I had the pleasure of being invited to a little preview tour/event in the brand spanking new Apple Store in Cologne. It’s our second one here in Cologne and I have to say it is one of the most beautiful Apple Stores I have seen so far. And of any stores in general. It is located in (according to a 2008 survey) Europes busiest shopping street, Schildergasse. A lot of people pass by, everyone will see it. The Architecture is beautiful and Apple did such a beautiful job with the interior of the store. I obviously (!) shot all…

Olga says hi!

End of last year I had the great pleasure of finally meeting and working with Olga Maria Kaminska. We shot a couple of beautiful sets. All shot in my “home studio”, as far as you can call it that at the moment. Hair and Makeup by the talented Katarzyna Jeziorowski. 😀 Fun times, even more fun results. Minimum to none retouching on all of them. Just don’t feel like it anymore. I hope you like them as much as I do. First set just coming up. more tk. kind regards, Teymur.

Leila LoFi – Model and Photoshop stuff

I was playing around in Photoshop a bit and trying some stuff and remembered I had these photos lying in last years Lightroom library. One thing added to the other and bandaning badabum we have a nice LoFi (80s/VHS) effect.

Model Photography – Cassidy Rose and Frollein Miez

It was a very spontaneous shoot, only took about two hours and we had a lot of fun. It was Cassidys birthday, the weather was fantastic too and went down to the Rhine as the ladies had some swimwear the wanted to be shot in. I normally am very well prepared, especially equipment wise… well… lets say I ended up with some completely wet pants. Really pleased with the results though and hope you’ll enjoy them as much as I do. Spontaneous people FTW!!! If you want to see more of Cassidy Rose and Frollein Miez, just follow the links….
