Hochzeitfoto mal anders: 360° Little Planet

Melle und Dirk machten gerne mit als ich Ihnen vorschlug ein ganz besonderes Hochzeitsfoto von ihnen zu machen. Dazu nahm ich mein 8mm-Spezialobjektiv, welches ich normalerweise für die Erstellung virtueller Rundgänge verwende und fotografierte das Paar mit ihrer kleinen Tochter vor der wunderschönen Hochzeitslocation in Neumünster-Tungendorf.

Wandbild Alu-Dibond

Die besondere Form des Wandschmucks

groeblbauer-fotografie-01#saaldigital
Die Wände sind leer und es fehlt an Ideen, was man machen könnte?

Eine schöne Möglichkeit, Familienbilder an die Wand zu bringen, ist ein Druck auf Alu-Dibond. Das ist eine Aluminiumplatte, die direkt bedruckt wird. Diese ist auf einem festen Trägermaterial montiert und ergibt ein stabiles, biegefestes Produkt. Das Material ist witterungsbeständig und auch für den Außenbereich geeignet.

Die hellen Bildbereiche schimmern seidig matt und tauchen das Motiv in ein besonderes Licht. Es ist ein ganz besonderer Look, der sehr edel wirkt.
Mir gefällt dieses Produkt, da es etwas Besonderes ist. Ein Nachteil ist, dass die Aluminium-Oberfläche empfindlich ist. Man muss die Oberfläche sorgfältig behandeln.

Auf den Bildern sieht man ein 360°-Portrait auf einer Seebrücke. Das Motiv sieht aufgrund der Reflexionen je nach Lichteinfall immer etwas anders aus.
Das Bild hat folgende Ausmaße: 80 cm breit, 40 cm hoch und 3mm stark. groeblbauer-fotografie-03

Bei der Größe hatte ich Befürchtungen, dass es durchbiegt, aber das ist nicht der Fall.

Fazit:
Wer mal Lust auf etwas Besonderes hat und vielleicht sogar im Außenbereich umdekorieren will, sollte mal ein Wandbild aus Alu-Dibond ausprobieren.
Es ist auch eine schöne Geschenkidee.

Erfahrungsbericht: Ein Fotobuch von Saal digital

IMG_2323
Cover des Fotobuchs

Fotobücher sind eine schöne Erinnerung und sorgen dafür, dass man sich seine Bilder auch mal anschaut, anstatt sie auf der Festplatte verstauben zu lassen.
Ich habe schon mehrere Fotobücher getestet und wollte nun auch mal die Qualität des Fotobuchs der Firma Saal digital unter die Lupe nehmen.

Das Fotobuch XT (extra thick) in der Größe 28 x 19cm fand ich interessant. Das ist ein Querformat mit sehr dicken Seiten. Die Innenseiten werden auf echtem Fotopapier belichtet und auf einem kartonstarken Trägermaterial mit einer Grammatur von 600 g/m² kaschiert. Es ist wie ein Bilderbuch für Kinder, allerdings ohne abgerundete Ecken.
Das Buch habe ich am Sonntag bestellt und am darauffolgenden Samstag erhalten. Ich denke, die Lieferzeit von guten fünf Werktagen ist absolut in Ordnung.

Zur Qualität des Buches: Das Cover ist fest und fühlt sich wertig an. Es hat ein schönes mattes Finish. Die Qualität des Drucks auf dem Fotopapier ist super. Da kann man nicht meckern. Detailreich und farbgenau. Es ist alles gut verarbeitet ohne Blitzer (weiße Bereiche an den Schnittkanten der Seiten) oder Leimreste.

Doppelseite

Es ist auch kein Problem, wichtige Bildelemente in der Mitte zu platzieren, da man die Seiten vollständig aufklappen kann. Bei einfachen Fotobüchern gibt es manchmal das Problem, dass Teile des Motivs im Übergang von der linken zur rechten Seite verschwinden. Das ist bei diesem Bilderbuch nicht der Fall.

Ob man 40 Euro inkl. Versand für ein 10-seitiges Fotobuch ausgeben will, ist Ansichtssache. Von der Qualität des Fotobuches XT von Saal digital bin ich allerdings restlos überzeugt und kann nur eine klare Empfehlung abgeben.

People think focus means saying yes to the thing you’ve got to focus on. But that’s not what it means at all. It means saying no to the hundred other good ideas that there are. You have to pick carefully. I’m actually as proud of the things we haven’t done as the things I have done. Innovation is saying no to 1,000 things.

Markup

Markup: Image Alignment

Welcome to image alignment! The best way to demonstrate the ebb and flow of the various image positioning options is to nestle them snuggly among an ocean of words. Grab a paddle and let’s get started.

On the topic of alignment, it should be noted that users can choose from the options of NoneLeftRight, and Center. In addition, they also get the options of ThumbnailMediumLarge & Fullsize.

Image Alignment 580x300

The image above happens to be centered.

Image Alignment 150x150The rest of this paragraph is filler for the sake of seeing the text wrap around the 150×150 image, which is left aligned

As you can see the should be some space above, below, and to the right of the image. The text should not be creeping on the image. Creeping is just not right. Images need breathing room too. Let them speak like you words. Let them do their jobs without any hassle from the text. In about one more sentence here, we’ll see that the text moves from the right of the image down below the image in seamless transition. Again, letting the do it’s thang. Mission accomplished!

And now for a massively large image. It also has no alignment.

Image Alignment 1200x400

The image above, though 1200px wide, should not overflow the content area. It should remain contained with no visible disruption to the flow of content.

Image Alignment 300x200

And now we’re going to shift things to the right align. Again, there should be plenty of room above, below, and to the left of the image. Just look at him there… Hey guy! Way to rock that right side. I don’t care what the left aligned image says, you look great. Don’t let anyone else tell you differently.

In just a bit here, you should see the text start to wrap below the right aligned image and settle in nicely. There should still be plenty of room and everything should be sitting pretty. Yeah… Just like that. It never felt so good to be right.

And just when you thought we were done, we’re going to do them all over again with captions!

Image Alignment 580x300
Look at 580×300 getting some caption love.

The image above happens to be centered. The caption also has a link in it, just to see if it does anything funky.

Image Alignment 150x150
Itty-bitty caption.

The rest of this paragraph is filler for the sake of seeing the text wrap around the 150×150 image, which is left aligned

As you can see the should be some space above, below, and to the right of the image. The text should not be creeping on the image. Creeping is just not right. Images need breathing room too. Let them speak like you words. Let them do their jobs without any hassle from the text. In about one more sentence here, we’ll see that the text moves from the right of the image down below the image in seamless transition. Again, letting the do it’s thang. Mission accomplished!

And now for a massively large image. It also has no alignment.

Image Alignment 1200x400
Massive image comment for your eyeballs.

The image above, though 1200px wide, should not overflow the content area. It should remain contained with no visible disruption to the flow of content.

Image Alignment 300x200
Feels good to be right all the time.

And now we’re going to shift things to the right align. Again, there should be plenty of room above, below, and to the left of the image. Just look at him there… Hey guy! Way to rock that right side. I don’t care what the left aligned image says, you look great. Don’t let anyone else tell you differently.

In just a bit here, you should see the text start to wrap below the right aligned image and settle in nicely. There should still be plenty of room and everything should be sitting pretty. Yeah… Just like that. It never felt so good to be right.

And that’s a wrap, yo! You survived the tumultuous waters of alignment. Image alignment achievement unlocked!

Markup

Markup: Text Alignment

Default

This is a paragraph. It should not have any alignment of any kind. It should just flow like you would normally expect. Nothing fancy. Just straight up text, free flowing, with love. Completely neutral and not picking a side or sitting on the fence. It just is. It just freaking is. It likes where it is. It does not feel compelled to pick a side. Leave him be. It will just be better that way. Trust me.

Left Align

This is a paragraph. It is left aligned. Because of this, it is a bit more liberal in it’s views. It’s favorite color is green. Left align tends to be more eco-friendly, but it provides no concrete evidence that it really is. Even though it likes share the wealth evenly, it leaves the equal distribution up to justified alignment.

Center Align

This is a paragraph. It is center aligned. Center is, but nature, a fence sitter. A flip flopper. It has a difficult time making up its mind. It wants to pick a side. Really, it does. It has the best intentions, but it tends to complicate matters more than help. The best you can do is try to win it over and hope for the best. I hear center align does take bribes.

Right Align

This is a paragraph. It is right aligned. It is a bit more conservative in it’s views. It’s prefers to not be told what to do or how to do it. Right align totally owns a slew of guns and loves to head to the range for some practice. Which is cool and all. I mean, it’s a pretty good shot from at least four or five football fields away. Dead on. So boss.

Justify Align

This is a paragraph. It is justify aligned. It gets really mad when people associate it with Justin Timberlake. Typically, justified is pretty straight laced. It likes everything to be in it’s place and not all cattywampus like the rest of the aligns. I am not saying that makes it better than the rest of the aligns, but it does tend to put off more of an elitist attitude.

Template: Sticky

This is a sticky post.

There are a few things to verify:

  • The sticky post should be distinctly recognizable in some way in comparison to normal posts. You can style the .sticky class if you are using the post_class() function to generate your post classes, which is a best practice.
  • They should show at the very top of the blog index page, even though they could be several posts back chronologically.
  • They should still show up again in their chronologically correct postion in time, but without the sticky indicator.
  • If you have a plugin or widget that lists popular posts or comments, make sure that this sticky post is not always at the top of those lists unless it really is popular.
Markup

Markup: Title With Special Characters

Putting special characters in the title should have no adverse effect on the layout or functionality.

Special characters in the post title have been known to cause issues with JavaScript when it is minified, especially in the admin when editing the post itself (ie. issues with metaboxes, media upload, etc.).

Vienna & Christian

Die Hochzeit von Vienna und Christian fand Ende August 2015 in Kiel statt. Die Sonne verwöhnte das Brautpaar und seine Gäste. Ein schönes, altes Fachwerkhaus diente als Kulisse für das Spektakel. Der romantische Garten, bestückt mit alten Bäumen, war eine Augenweide. Es war eine Wonne dort Portraits zu fotografieren.

All children, except one, grow up. They soon know that they will grow up, and the way Wendy knew was this. One day when she was two years old she was playing in a garden, and she plucked another flower and ran with it to her mother. I suppose she must have looked rather delightful, for Mrs. Darling put her hand to her heart and cried, „Oh, why can’t you remain like this for ever!“ This was all that passed between them on the subject, but henceforth Wendy knew that she must grow up. You always know after you are two. Two is the beginning of the end.
