Every other year the Steinhuder Meer – a huge lake in Lower Saxony near Hanover – freezes.
When this happens, although everybody is talking about global warming, the people that live there (like me) and a lot of tourists can’t resist to go ice skating. In 1998 and 2009 there was an ice festival because the Steinhuder Meer almost froze completely so that the area you have for skating is about 30 square kilometers large (that’s the size of the lake). Which doesn’t mean that you can actually ice skate on the whole of this area but theoretically. On some areas the ice is always very thin and it is dangerous!
But there is enough ice left to do whatever you want: play ice hockey, play curling , go ice sailing or try to ride your bike on ice. Usually the Steinhuder Meer freezes in early January. This happens almost every year. But it seldom happens that the ice is to thick that we can have an ice festival. The Steinhuder Meer is close to Hanover which you can easily reach by train. From Hanover you can take a suburban train to Wunstorf and then take a bus to Steinhude.
Every photograph is a capsule of reality – or multiple realities, for that matter – freezing time and space in their constantly changing state. 'Multi-Verse', a series by photographer Amy Friend, explores the possibility of parallel universes.
“This is the story before the sun sets, before one boy goes and leaves the other behind. Their names are maybe Denver, maybe Karlo, Their names do not matter. They are every boy who ever had a brother, who found out alone that fireflies die and mermaids never lived.”

Most venues will have a huge in caps policy for "NO FLASH PHOTOGRAPHY" but when the only lights you have are on stage or just a light bulb in a basement or coffee shop, how do you capture a good exposure? These are the tips and tricks for shooting great photos with little to no light and no flash.
A while back I had the unique chance to hang a little with Muhammad Yunus in Uganda. The professor from Bangladesh is no other than a Nobel Peace Prize Laureate for the implementation for micro credits and a shining icon of social business. Now he and his supporters are trying to make the world a better place, in real.
The ambiance is a crucial factor to consider when shooting photographs as light, color, and texture make up the overall visual aesthetic of an image. The Lobster Redscale 110 does not only bathe pictures in striking red but in other hues as well.
