Hi, my name is Claudio Testa and I'm a young landscape photographer, designer and developer based in south Germany. I spend all my free time to create new pieces of art and develop new techniques to realize my ideas.


Natural History Museum London
Picture of the great hall in the Natural History Museum in London. Some people say that it looks like Hogwarts.I really liked the details and the symetries.

Frozen Forest


Tonight it snowed a good deal and earlier this morning it didn’t looked like there will be an end to it. I still decided to pack my equipment and try to find a good spots. I started my tour near a local castle ruin. What I found was this small path. Everything was covered with snow, the trees the path and later on also my tripod and camera. I tried to capture the forest and the falling snow. I tested different settings with longer and shorter exposure. This photo was something in between. Not to short and not to long so you can see some snow falling.

After working over 3 years with my Canon 600D it is now time for a new Camera. I'm a big fan off pushing a camera to it's limits so I waited with the upgrade a long time and spend more time in gaining advanced photoshop techniques, composition techniques, and technical knowledge and there is still so much to learn. I played a lot with the Magic Lantern Firmware lately. It's a Custom Firmware for Canon cameras that allows you control over advanced camera setting and some functions that are only available in higher priceclass cameras like advanced bracketing settings and custom iso setting e.g. ISO-250 and so on.

Still, there are some things I'm not happy about. I'm speaking about fast bracketing, dynamic range and low-light-noise. This year Canon released the Canon 80D and the Canon 5D Mark IV which both have a new sensor with better dynamic range abilities and both have a better noise performance in low light than the models before. With this cameras Canon is trying to catch up with other camera manufacturer like Nikon or Pentax. With these new releases I was sure I would stay with Canon.

However, I wasn't so sure if I should buy a Fullframe or a Crop-Sensor camera and I finally decided to buy the 80D. So I can keep my 10-22mm lens. The Crop Sensor also becomes useful when starting to shoot with a higher focal length and I bought the Canon L 24-70mm f4 not long ago which is really a perfect lens even at APS-C cameras. I'm looking forward to test the equipment this weekend . :)

Gear I upgraded this year.

Canon 600D -> Canon 80D
Canon 18-55mm -> Canon L 24-70mm f4
Mantona Tripod -> old Gitzo G226 + Sirui K20
Normal Backpack -> Lowepro 300 AW

Let me know what you think.
What equipment do you think is most important ? The Camera, the Lens or is it knowledge ?
What skills did you learn this year?
What equipment have you changed ?
