Teufelsbruecke photography trip
Saturday’s photography trip to the Teufelsbruecke (Devil’s Bridge) did not dissapoint! We had a great group of photographers and spectacular weather for our photo walk between Andermatt and Goeschenen. The impressive Schöllenen Gorge gave us plenty of subject matter for experimenting with HDR (high-dynamic-range) photography. Further down towards Goeschenen we got creative with long exposure shots of the Reuss river flowing around huge granite boulders. I preferred a black and white treatment on my own photos which I think fits well with the bridge’s stark architecture and it’s rugged granitic surroundings.
Alpabfahrt – The Celebration of an Accident-Free Alpine Summer

Is it time to learn flash?
Mention the word “flash” in a photography conversation and many photographers will cringe or try to change the topic. “I don’t like the look of flash” is Greek for: “I don’t know how my flash works.” While many believe that flash is only used indoors or when it’s dark, you would be surprised by how it can improve your daytime shots and introduce special creative effects as well.
In this post, I described some typical situations where a camera-mounted flash comes in very handy.
