A couple of weeks ago our photographer Susann Städter took over our Instagram Account. She shared her snapshots and thoughts with us. And because it was so much fun, we asked her to wrap up the take-over once again for us and let us know why she picked exactly these photos.
Here are her answers:
Dresden, my hometown and as birthplace of Photocase I thought it might be a great motive to start the #photocasetakeover.
At one of my favorite stores in Neustadt (a quarter in Dresden) I was waiting at the counter in order to pay, but the shop assistant was not in sight. So I waited a bit longer and while standing there I saw these very nice knobs. It was an iphone shot, as 99% of my instagram photos are shot with the iphone 6. It just gives me a great deal of freedom, as I can simply shoot the moment and the motive I am seeing right now.
Luck. Most of the times I don’t think about the photos I take. They are the result of a moment of luck and happiness in order to achieve a diverting story in the minds of my followers. No long explanations, just a photo.
A group of tourists was standing behind me. They were looking at the ‘Stallhof’, which is the place where the winter market takes place every year, and which I only know and experience in these days. The smell of meat and roasted almonds is very traditional. During summer the light is exceptional.
Did I just say, that I shoot 99% of my instagram photos with the iphone?! Well, thats not entirely true. This photo was taken during a portrait workshop in Norheide, near Hamburg, one week prior to the #photocasetakeover. During the 2 day workshop we really learned a lot.
It was a crazy time and an amazing motive: Wharariki Beach in New Zeeland. The beach is located on the Southern Island and like most of the times we were completely alone at the beach. So we jumped around like small children and took fun selfies of us. Those couple of hours felt like weeks.
Middle Earth, as New Zeeland is also named looks in nearly every region similar. It seems as if the hills and mountains are oversized pillow landscapes, coated with velvet and moss. In my thoughts I let myself fall over and over into these pillows and enjoyed every minute.
And this was just the beginning! From next monday (27th of july) on our photographer krockenmitte will be running our Photocase Instagram Account for three days. So stay tuned!
