Hamburg is always worth a trip. The north German metropolis offers numerous sights such as the harbor, the Elbphilharmonie, the Alster or the old office buildings, all of which have exciting motifs for photographers. The banks of the Elbe along the jetties and the harbor develop into a sea of lights of a special kind after sunset at the blue hour. Life pulsates here until late at night – the harbor never sleeps.
Born in Hamburg and photographer Maike Jarsetz takes you in her contribution to the current issue of c’t photography photo tours on a nightly foray from Dockland to the Elbphilharmonie and the container ports on the southern side of the Elbe. It reveals how you can quickly and easily get to the right photo spots on foot, by bike, by your own car or by ferry, in order to take impressive pictures of the nightly harbor and Elbe backdrop. Amazing that the dominant color is actually blue, which harmonizes beautifully with the warm yellow light sources of the buildings, ships and cranes. Jarsetz also gives tips for the correct settings on the camera and how you can avoid disappointment due to blurred images.
