The eternal question: Should I use the COLOR or make it BW?

The eternal question: Should I use the COLOR or make it BW?

If you check out my website more closely, you'll see that I use the photojournalist approach of making images. I like telling the story with them, so I try not to over-edit my photos. I edit every image I publish, it's something you HAVE to do because usually our cameras don't produce the image we usually have in our heads. At least, that's the case with me. I put a bit of contrast into my images, do a bit of sharpening, and a couple of small tweaks, nothing much. (more…)...

Skoda Kodiaq was SO CLOSE to look really great, but…

Since the AutoIQ story is long over, I have no more chance to photograph interesting cars and publish them. Most of the cars I've published in 2017 are from the archive, but a friend of mine got me a half an hour with the new Skoda Kodiaq.

When the Fiat 500 meets his much meaner twin brother: I choose the brother

When the Fiat 500 meets his much meaner twin brother: I choose the brother

In February 2016 I met a new Fiat 500, and even I thought that I wouldn't like that car - I did! For example, the bigger versions, 500L and 500L Trekking, are not good at all and I was really disappointed when I had them on a test. The small 500 is a nice looking car, nice to drive, has enough space for that kind of a car - it's a really nice small city car. But then, in December of that same year, I met its brother. Much, much meaner twin brother who made me smile so much - Abarth 595 Competizione! (more…)...
