Regions where the images had been taken

This is not a surprise: Since I live in Europe the majority of the images had been taken in Europe. Second is North America where I had spent time as a student and also during numerous vacations.

Here are the geographical extremes of locations where I had taken images:

Image orientation

Image Orientation

I generally prefer landscape oriented images to portrait oriented images. Not really sure why. Maybe they do more fit to my view of things?

For panorama images I always use several landscape oriented images to stitch to a single panorama image. I know that many people use portrait oriented images for stitching but so far I did not miss the additional panorama image size that would give (and I do appreciate the simpler handling of less images and the smaller file sizes I get from using landscape oriented images).

Equipment used

Cameras used

Cameras used

Currently the majority of the images on my website had been taken with my Nikon D200 SLR. Since I upgraded to a Nikon D7000 in early 2011 that camera will probably catch up soon.

Lenses used

Lenses used

Lens wise no surprise again I guess: The standard zooms are used most. The tele zooms are not used that much and the wide angle zoom is used the least. Please note that only digital images had been evaluated here (i.e. only images that contain exif information).

Focal length (35mm) used

Focal length used

Here the picture is similar: The majority of the images had been taken with a focal length from a moderate wide angle to a moderate tele. The focal length here is converted to a 35mm equivalent so that the numbers of the different cameras/sensor sizes make sense.
Please note that only digital images had been evaluated here (i.e. only images that contain exif information).

Exposure Parameters

Only digital images had been evaluated here (i.e. only images that contain exif information).

More then 95% of the images I took use an ISO Speed Rating of 100. So there is no point in adding graph with that statistical information here.

Exposure program used

Exposure program used

When shooting hand-held I always use program mode to expose, when shooting from a tripod I always use aperture priority and when shooting a panorama image I always use manual (in order to make sure that all images have the exact same exposure).

Aperture used

Aperture used

When shooting from a tripod I use aperture priority and I try to keep the aperture at around 8 as that is when (most) lenses produce best image quality.

As I mainly shoot with zoom lenses (and almost never with prime lenses) - see above - the minimum aperture used is quite high.

Exposure time used

Exposure time used

As I almost never use shutter priority mode the exposure time is distributed over (almost) the complete range of possible exposure times. The peak at 1/125s and 1/250s is quite natural when shooting many images during normal day light.

White Balance used

White Balance used

I never use auto white balance. Auto white balance tweaks the color of the image to what the camera thinks is optimal. This means I have no control, the results are not really reproducible and very often (especially in warm light conditions in the morning and in the evening) the resulting image does not reflect the scene correctly.

Normally I use Fine weather setting for white balance. This setting is basically the equivalent to daylight slide films (back in the analog days). The white balance setting is irrelevant for RAW images of course

Time when the images had been taken

Only digital images had been evaluated here (i.e. only images that contain exif information).

Year in which the image had been taken

Year in which the image had been taken

Here the help of new technology is visible: The first boost of images happened in 2002 when I bought my first digital camera (a Minolta, DiMAGE 7i). The second boost happened after I bought my first digital SLR in 2006 (a Nikon D200).

Month of the year the image had been taken

Month of the year the image had been taken

I do prefer spring and autumn to go on vacation (and the majority of the images are taken during vacation). Part of that is due to the fact that in Europe the main vacation time is in summer so that during that time everything is overcrowded and prices are high. I am a bit surprised though that I seem to not like July for photography at all.

Day of the week the image had been taken

Day of the week the image had been taken

Here it seems that I prefer weekends for taking photos which is obvious as I have to work during the week. Wednesday is the least favourite day. This is probably due to the fact that a long weekend normally does not include a Wednesday.

Day of the month the image had been taken

Not really sure if this statistic creates any additional value. It was just easy and fun to extract the information from the exif files ...

Hour of the day the image had been taken

Hour of the day the image had been taken

No surprise here: The majority of the images had been taken in the morning and in the evening when the light is best. Few images had been taken in bright noon light.
