Welcome to my photography portfolio. My name is Carsten and I am an amateur photographer from Chemnitz, Germany. I enjoy exploring abandoned places with my camera, taking long exposure and landscape shots. I recently started with portrait and people photography.
I have no intention of producing "professional" photography. Instead, I enjoy the process of taking, developing and editing photos. Being a computer scientist, focussing on graphics, I am keen to learn about cameras, lenses and light transport and apply those principles to software or algorithms.
I recently started taking portraits and began to appreciate the beauty of proper lighting even more.
I enjoy the artistic touch, long exposure shots during nighttime and blue hour are producing.
Abandoned places tell interesting stories, if you just look close enough.
Travelling always gives me a sense of appreciation for the beauty of the world.
