Before-After-photo - Vorher-Nachher-Bild

In the morning I look like a Before-photo, in the evening I look like a crinkled After-photo. I don't look in the mirror during the day.

Morgens seh ich authentisch wie ein Vorher-Foto aus, abends wie eine zerknittertes Nachher-Foto. Während des Tages seh ich nicht in den Spiegel.

#Photography: How to Improve Your Night Photos - Add Reflections

Here is some good news: you probably don’t need to do anything different in terms of exposure to capture reflections in your picture. For reflections of most shiny surfaces, you simply set the exposure as you normally would, and take the picture. While using water to create the reflection does require that you smooth the water out, this is probably already happening because of the inherent challenges of exposure in night photography.

Kunstmue Festival 2016 - Interviews mit Musikern

Beim Kunstmue trifft man schräge Typen
Wieder großartige Acts, guter Sound und gute Stimmung beim Kunstmue Festival 2016 in Bad Goisern.

Einige Musiker haben sich zu einem Interview bereit erklärt.

Souldja


Souldja aus Oberösterreich, der Headliner beim Kunstmue 2016, spielen Reggae. Neben Sänger/Gitarre/Keyboards/Bass/Drums leistet sich die Band noch einen Percussionisten und einen zweiten Sänger. Leadsänger Markus Trappmair hat ein Stimme wie Peter Tosh. Schließt man die Augen, glaubt man sich nach Jamaika transferiert. Markus Trappmair (Gesang, Riddim Gitarre) und Lukas Bräuer (Leadgitarre) sprechen über ihre Musik, einen gewonnen Award und die neueste Veröffentlichung (Free Download!). Und dass sich die Band auch für das Hilfsprojekt "Childrenplanet" engagiert. Reggae-Lebensart exekutieren bedeutet für diese Band mehr als nur Dreadlocks und Offbeat.

Laura Zotti


Laura Zotti, 17 Jahre jung (man sieht ihr nicht an, dass sie aus dem letzten Jahrtausend stammt), gewann den Local Heros Band Contest 2016 und damit verbunden einen Slot am Kunstmue Festival. Laura erzählt über ihre Musik, ihre musikalische Ausbildung, einen weiteren gewonnen Wettbewerb und Vewandte in der Band. Viel Applaus für Laura's Soul/Jazz/Pop beim Kunstmue 2016. Ja, tolle Stimme.
