Photo of the Day: Beach Volleyball

Finally I found some time to post photos again 😉


During a beach volleyball shooting (with Alexander ‘Xandi’ huber and Robin Valentin Seidl for I had the Idea to get a different angle.
So I put myself down on the ground with my 8-15mm fisheye lens and snapped these images.


I was scared to scratch my lens because of all the sand (it was full of it)…but after cleaning the lens everything was fine….from my point of view it was worth the risk.
As you can see, the guys were also pretty close to the cam (and my face) 😉

Good and bad days or the fight for improvement

 The last weeks I was practicing with the Pocket Reducers:



 I just was working on my stroke and on doing the same thing every time.I like to do that with the Pocket Reducers, because they force me to get concentrated on every shot.So I was working on aiming, getting more views and doing more practice strokes before I shoot. Also I focused on “going through the ball” on every shot.And this should also work when I “jack up” on the ball.I was working every day on this and I forced myself to do my “ritual” every time, even when I felt very comfortable. (Not an easy thing for me)Also I try to play when I felt uncomfortable (very tired or when my body felt bad).


And today is one of these days where I will not miss even one ball and anyway I forced myself to do my “ritual” (even though I knew I could make every ball without it.)

To get more feelings (Information) about myself on these days, I tried to watch myself as much as possible.

What I want to say is: Don’t just enjoy your good days, try to learn from them.Also enjoy your bad days, don’t get rustrated and pissed, be happy, because you have the possibility to see what you are doing wrong.
