My world - Karin Pezel
I took my first photographs in the early 1980’s. Many of them were blurry or had a poor image field (e.g. legs or heads were “cut off”, etc. see some examples below).
This issue was only fixed once I got my first SLR camera – a Russian-made Zenit. Then followed years of holiday photography (with compact cameras, SLRs, DSLRs) – where I wasn’t too concerned with composition, lighting, apertures, etc. That meant I was also often not satisfied with the results.
It wasn’t until 2014 that I decided to focus on my photography and train myself in this field. I read books, watched educational videos, took courses – all things to help create photo that I actually like.
I practice photography as a hobby in my private time. Lola, my pug, regularly accompanies me on my photography excursions. I am a member of the Austrian Animal and Nature Photography Society - www.vtnoe.at .
In my professional career, I am mostly focussed on the world of SAP and IT strategy consulting as well as SAP management.
In my private life, I am also a follower of Shaolin culture (Qi Gong, Rou Quan, Kung Fu, meditation) and vibrational healing techniques (Pranic Healing, EFT etc.). Travel and hiking are also an important part of my life.
