Sports Editorial: Freeletics session from start to finish.

Currently, my beloved Fujifilm 10-24mm F4.0 lens is currently at the Fujifilm workshop due to a manufacturing problem. That is not a problem per se. For paid assignments I can still get a rental lens from FotoMax in Nürnberg. Those guys do a fantastic job. (Nope, I’m not paid or sponsored to say that. Good service should always be recommended). Anyhow, due to the lacking lens, I could focus again on some other projects that did not require a short focal length.

Recently, I got to know @Schmiddla who is a Freeletics sportsman. Also I personally worked out quite a lot recently. I practically did everyday sports. From skating, over running, biking and swimming, to badminton and tennis. My current sports motivation combined with my new acquitances gave me the idea to enter a new area of photography: Sports editorial photography. And here’s my first shot in that genre. I documented his workout from start to beginning: Warm-up in a sweater, push-ups, running, taking a break and protein shake, as well as stretching and relaxing. Many thanks as well to this local sports club who gave us the permission beforehand to shoot there.

A funny side note though: They locked the gate, so we had to climb over the fence and to lift my bike over it as well. For me, as one of the shorter guys, that would have been a difficult matter, but Schmiddla is very tall, so he could easily help me out with that.

LUX - Junge Kirche Nürnberg | Young Church Nuremberg | Germany - The architecture of Nuremberg - Part 4

Good news, it finally has become summer! :)
So now, I can go out in shorts, not shielding myself from wind and rain; instead, just relaxing, enjoying the moment and waiting for majestic sunsets, as presented in the first shot of this series. Due to the good weather, I could continue my project of photographing the Lux - Junge Kirche Nürnberg. The previous interior shots focussed exclusively on the cubic modernist element which has been added as an annex to the main church. The main church will be photographed as soon as I get technical assistance to manage all the lights inside - yes, it’s complicated, not just turning on a light switch. ;) Anyhow, as you can see below, this church really expresses modernism at its finest: a round cubistic metal box right next to a spiky shaped church building. And all of that is also still connected to a very classic and simplistic rectangular shaped church tower. And as a little detail, there’s another cubistic element attached to the main wall. The funny thing is, from the inside it is so steep that it can’t be used for anything useful actually. It does flood the room with light though (a normal window could so, too), but still it opens the office of the employees and gives it a more airy feel to the otherwise dark office. I glad I found this church and could add the first sunset picture to my portfolio. Last but not least, I want to mention how laid-back and casual all employees and church visitors are. It is a fantastic atmosphere and such a place could even make me consider to go to church from time to time.
