I’m just a simple person and urban graphics is my website to show my photos. My Name is Mandy and I’m working in IT business at the university in Potsdam. I decided to make this website in english, because I know some english speaking people and I want them to unterstand what I’m writing. If people like what I do, I also want them to understand what I’m writing. However, I’ll try to write my blogpost in german as well because my family doesn’t speek english and they like to read this as well.
Photography is a hoppy of mine, I love to take pictures and I love to get out to take pictures. Sometimes I make special photo tours and sometimes I just take a walk somewhere and I have my camera with me.
I don’t know if my photos are good or if they suck. Truth is, I don’t care about it, because I like them and for me that’s the most important. It’s my hobby and as long as I have fun with that I won’t stop. Of course I’m trying to get better and learn new things. But I also have no problem with critism.
Here are the Tools I’m working with:
Camera: Sony Alpha 65
Lenses: Sony DT 18 – 70mm 1:3.5 – 5.6; Sigma DC 18 -200mm 1:3.5 – 6.3; Soligor AF Macro 100mm 1:3.5; Minolta AF 50mm 1:1.7, Rokinon 8mm Fisheye
Tripod: Manfrotto Compact Tripod, Mantona Scout Tripod, Monopod, Gorillapod
Others: sky filter, polar filter, nd filter, some other effect filter
Software: Photoshop CS 6, Bridge CS 6, Illustrator CS 6
My biggest success so far are 3 of my photos published n a book. In 2010 there was a photo contest form the district „Spree-Neisse“. You cound sent in some of your photos and the best ones were chosen to be in a photobook about that district. And I got lucky.
