My Name is Thomas Otterbein
Bio: born 1955, living in Hessen, Germany
Photography: since my schooldays photography is my favorite hobby
Further hobbies: Amateur Radio, vintage fountain pens
Photography skils: still a really hobbyist, experienced but do not claim to have a professional level
Photography specialization: nothing, I enjoy every part of photography
First gear: my father´s ZEISS IKON NETTAR.
It was 1965 a real challenge for a kid to gamble around with shutter speed, aperture, guessing the object distance and film speed. But it helps tremendous to learn the combination of all this settings.
With this camera I was the "king" during school trips :-)
From this days I still know the f16-sunny-rule ........you know it?
Postprocessing: if necessary, Phase One´s "Capture One" as RAW developer and Adobe´s Photoshop CC
I really welcome photo critiques, recommendations, etc. to help me improving my technique, viewing and web presentation.
I kindly ask you to provide any comments or send me an eMail
Thank you for choosing!
