The Calendar Files … 2014 … Berlin

Well, just to recap …

Some time ago a dis­cus­sion was going on, what to do with your favor­ite images you made over the year and how to appre­ci­ate them. All agreed, that the final appre­ci­ation can be giv­en by print­ing your images — some­thing most pho­to­graph­ers in the age of post­ing online tril­lions of images a day nev­er did or will ever do.

My way to appre­ci­ate my images of the year is to print a cal­en­dar for the com­ing year. This way I have to choose 12 (13) out of hun­dreds of images and they should rep­res­ent the best I did.

In this mini series I’d like to show my cal­en­dar files of the past years with all 12 (13 incl. cov­er page) images.

One issue I have is, that even if the cal­en­dar sheet is DIN A2, the max­im­um image area is not 2:3 or 4:3, but some­times more 16:9. So when choos­ing the images, you not only have to see if you’ll end up with a por­trait or land­scape ori­ent­a­tion cal­en­dar, but also if an image can be cropped to the dif­fer­ing ratio. Some­times you will lose a small part of the ori­gin­al image — unfor­tu­nately. But that’s the price of get­ting 13 ‘large’ format prints of your own images.

In case you’d like to com­ment, it’s appre­ci­ated … and maybe, you want to vis­it my web­site or my flickr page too.

So long … and thanks for all the fish.


    1. Hi Jim,
      happy new year to you and your family.
      Thanks for stop­ping by and commenting.
      For this cal­en­dar, crop­ping was a real pain :)
