I find a quiet, uncluttered images particularly attractive. Therefore, I like to work with an open aperture and / or longer exposure times. I use no artificial lighting.
I am becoming more and more aware that, when taking pictures, it is extremely important to stay calm and completely focussed. Good pictures are not simply taken, they are worked out. The aim is to concentrate on the chosen scene, even if it is simple and to exploit it to the full. I hardly ever move outside my homeland South Tyrol and I am aware that I use only a fraction of the possibilities here. Not because it is South Tyrol. No, because our surrounding area usually provides more than initially expected. Nowhere else can I become more attuned with time and place and the ever-changing conditions than where I live. However, it requires continual spiritual development to identify new views in familiar surroundings.
