/, Photos, Shootings/Photo+Adventure


Last weekend was the Photo+Adventure exhibition in Vienna. Besides the standard photo gear and travel booths you could also listen to talks of wildlife photographers, visit art exhibitions and much more.

At the Nikon booth for example was a photoshoot with Miss Austria 2010, Valentina Schlager, and I took the chance to take some photos myself like dozens of other guys (or let’s say old freaky men that want to photograph young almost naked chicks…)


At the Sagafoto booth another shooting took place with a model called Alina. It was amazing how quick she was changing her facial expression.


As there were so many other guys taking pictures it was pretty hard to get a good shot and the lighting situation was not very good. I didn’t bring my flash and only used available light. I hope you like the images nonetheless. 🙂

      Mir persönlich gefallen diese Fotos auch besser. Das Model hatte ne ziemlich starke Ausstrahlung und das hat sich natürlich auch auf die Bilder übertragen. Da merkt man halt, das sie das professionell macht. 🙂

    Haha your description of the scenery is hilarious, since I thought the same!
    Miss Austria somehow looked bored or at least not enthusiastic to me, during the shooting.

    I like the fifth picture from Alina the most 🙂

      🙂 I totally agree with you about Miss Austria. But you have to admit, that it’s pretty hard to look enthusiastic when 30 lenses stare at you and you’re like meat at the slaughterhouse…

      By the way, my personal favourite is the 6th picture of Alina.

      Aaand since it looks like you are my first “real fan” I really want to know, how you heard of my blog… Please! 🙂

    Yeah that is true as well but it is something she has to do since she is something like a model? But I agree on the very strange situation haha

    That’s also very nice but place 2 for me 🙂

    Wow first fan, I am honored haha
    Uhm, good question. Ah I think that Photo Adventure had a link to your blog and since I enjoy reading blogs I clicked on yours!
    The big mystery is solved 😛

      Nobody told me and I was just an exhibition visitor myself. 🙂
