Introduction
I am a photographer and educator. HDR photography is one of my main interests and and my subjects include architecture and landscapes. The techniques I use also include panorama and vertorama photography. 

Are you into HDR photography? Visit my website farbspiel-photo.com to get free access to my images and various educational resources. These include:

1. The HDR Cookbook - a free primary resource for HDR post-processing techniques
2. Before-and-After Comparisons - see what HDR can do for your images 
3. Making-of videos - watch the whole process of HDR post-processing in my time-lapse making-of videos
4. Pics-to-play-with - test your newly learned skills by downloading full-res source images and processing them

It's all free and waiting for you at farbspiel-photo.com.

I currently use a Nikon D7000 as my main camera. Find more infos on my gear at farbspiel-photo.com/about/gear and join my D7000 Users Group at bit.ly/gas-d7000.

If you don't care about all that stuff, that's perfectly fine. I'd also be happy if you'd just add me to your circles. Take a look at my stream to see if the stuff I am sharing is of interest to you. Thanks for stopping by.

Regards
Klaus Herrmann

Please don't be this guy...
 
When you're doing street photography, you have to be very comfortable with confrontation. Hard core street photographers may even enjoy this type of situation for some reason.
 
In this video, street photographer Chuck Jines shows you his awful way of dealing with people that don't want their picture taken: He harasses them. And he even seems to be proud of it.
 
It's people like him who give street photography a bad reputation.
 
 
Yes, in some countries ,the law allows you to take pictures of people in public places. In others, it does not, and for good reason. But irrespective of the laws in your country, you have to treat people with respect.

Klaus, you have good manners and are well educated. You are a postive contributor to our understanding and enjoyment of the beauty to be found in this world. You are sharing your world view, not only your photos. But this is one way of being an ambassador to others, and allowing people to educate themselves. I agree that treating other people with dignity is very important.

How does a light field camera work?

Light field cameras capture image information that enables you to do lots of cool stuff with a picture after you've actually taken it. For instance, you can refocus the image or you can slightly shift your position creating a parallax effect.

This all seems like black magic. How can a single camera capture the information that allows you to do this?

This video explains the principles behind the technology. It's essentially a clever way of collecting the light through a huge array of very small lenses. This way, the camera can capture all the additional information that is necessary for doing the cool things in post processing.

Math can be so much fun!

Here's a crazy variant of Pool called "Loop", played on an elliptical table with very interesting physical properties. It was designed by a mathematician.

Have fun!

Seems like "knowing the angles" is paramount.

New customization features in Photoshop

In its newest release, Photoshop now offers a fresh UI look, a new start screen to quickly get you going with what you intend to do, and it has new toolbar customization options that let you shape your workspace exactly how you wish. This can make your workflow much more efficient.

My personal tip: Before you choose to customize your toolbar, you should create a new workspace and tell Photoshop to save your toolbar with that workspace. This way, you can go back to the default workspace at any time. This can be handy, e.g. when you're trying to follow along with a tutorial that is based on the default tool configuration.
