Top 5 young photographers on Instagram

Top Young Photographers on Instagram

You remember when I told you about my favorite landscape photographers on Instagram? Apparently you really liked that post so here are some more talented people that I’m following and whose work I adore. These are some of the most talented up and coming, young photographers on Instagram:

1. Moritz Aust, 17 years old
Very talented photographer from Germany. On his stream you find some of his fine art work, behind the scenes images and snapshots from his travels.

2. Lauren Withrow, 20 years old
I’ve been following Laurens photography for years now (I discovered her beautiful work on flickr first) and really like her style of dark and emotional portraiture. On her Instagram she also shares landscape photography from her travels.

3. Laura Zalenga, 24 years old
I’ve also been a big fan of Lauras photography for years. On Instagram she shares colorful images from her life and the most beautiful sunsets in Munich.

4. David Urbanke, 19 years old
David is probably one of the very best fashion photographers in New York. I’m especially loving his coverage of New York Fashion Week. On Instagram he shares his latest work and many favorites from older photo shoots.

5. Emma Loughridge
I’ve been a fan of Emmas work on Flickr some time ago and was so happy when I discovered her Instagram account. Nobody (except maybe her mother Cindy) can capture everyday life so beautifully. Also, loving her hair :) !

Colors of spring: radiant orchid & neutrals

Colors of Spring: radiant orchid & neutrals - Eva Thoeni
Links: 1) / 2) / 3) / 4) / 5) / 6) / 7)

I just recently found out that the Pantone Color of the Year 2014 is Radiant Orchid. I don’t think I own anything in this color yet but to me it screams spring :) . Here are some of my favorite pieces for the new season. What do you think about Radiant Orchid?

I already treated myself to these boots (number 7) and got gifted the parka. Loving both pieces so far!
Also, I’m a little sad that my denim jackets from 10 years ago don’t fit anymore. They just go with everything :) .

Happy spring everyone!

Behind the scenes: Magic

Magic I

Magic II

Magic III

When my alarm went off early on a saturday morning I wasn’t especially motivated to get up (I’m not a morning person at all!). But as soon as I smelled the fresh air, tripod in my hand and camera safely tucked inside my camera bag I felt ready. A smile hushed across my face and I was looking forward to my little photography adventure.

The idea for these three images had been on my mind for some days, originally inspired by Ashley Lebedev as she wrote about being proud of your images and hanging your best work in your own home. It had been too long since I last created an image and I wanted to make something I would be proud to hang on my own walls.

As I was running around in the woods, figuring out the best location and poses I felt great. But at home I was afraid to start editing. I was putting so much pressure on myself because I wanted to create 3 images I would love. After taking my time with each one of them I am very happy with the results.

I was watching and listening to the iTunes Festival Show by Coldplay while putting the final touches on the images and that’s where the title is coming from. Listening to their songs is the most relaxing (and brings up happy memories!!).

Here is a before & after of number one, and below are some behind the scenes images of this magical location.
