Porträt von Stefan Klenke - Multi Media Produzent und 360° Fotograf aus Berlin (Deutschland)

STEFAN KLENKE - 360 ° PRODUCTIONS AND VISUAL CREATIVE CONTENT

I am a Visual Content Producer from Berlin and I am employed by a wonderful company called VR-EASY GmbH, where a lot rotates around 360 °. We also developed the software with which this website was created. My focus is on 360 ° photography, classic photography, graphic design, UX design, video production, project development and coaching.

Meine Schwerpunkte liegen in der 360°-Fotografie, klassischen Fotografie, Grafikdesign, UX-Design, Videoproduktion, Projektentwicklung und Coaching.



FROM ANALOG DARKROOM TO DIGITAL 360° VR WORLDS IN 20 YEARS

One of my greatest passions is photography. In almost 20 years as a professional photographer, I've learned to shoot almost everything to a high standard. It all started with analogue photography around 1999. Then I experienced the fantastic revolution of digital photography around the turn of the millennium and became part of the next photographic evolution phase about four years ago - 360° photography.

And I love that about my job: constantly discovering new motifs and technologies, capturing moments, getting to know a fascinating mix of people and places, mastering new challenges, acquiring new knowledge and I am very happy to pass it on.

Und das liebe ich an meinem Beruf: Stetig neue Motive und Technologien entdecken, Momente einfangen, einen faszinierenden Mix an Menschen und Orten kennenlernen, neue Herausforderungen meistern, mir neues Wissen aneignen und sehr gerne auch weiter geben.

MY GOALS: Excite AND INSPIRE
Although I am almost 42 years old, I never try to forget my inner child. Curiosity and enthusiasm for the world out there is an important prerequisite for finding and telling exciting stories, whether with the help of a camera, a graphics program or with words. In the same way I love to be inspired, I love to inspire others.

360 ° PHOTOGRAPHY -
A COMPLETE NEW WAY OF LOOKING AT AND CAPTURING THE WORLD


Dies ist ein Little Planet Bild kreiert aus einem 360° Foto der Freiwilligen Feuerwehr in Angermünde fotografiert von Stefan Klenke

In den letzten vier Jahren habe ich viele spannende 360°-Projekte für VR-EASY umsetzen dürfen. Im Juni 2016 fing ich als totaler 360°-Beginner mit dieser faszinierenden Art des Fotografierens an. Bis dahin hatte ich mir schon in etwa zwei Jahrzehnten als professioneller Fotograf viel Wissen aneignen können.  Es war dennoch ein steile Lernkurve zu bezwingen.

In the past four years I have been able to implement many exciting 360 ° projects for VR-EASY. In June 2016 I started this fascinating way of photography as a total 360 ° beginner. By then I had acquired a lot of knowledge as a professional photographer in about two decades. It was still a steep learning curve to climb.

This project, for which our company VR-EASY was commissioned, was about capturing the largest conference hall of the Holiday Inn at Berlin Schönefeld Airport in high-quality 360 ° images. It should be clearly shown how versatile the 625m² conference hall can be used - as a support for the hotel in marketing the location.

The Berlin ensemble is located in the beautiful Theater am Schiffbauer Damm. I was supposed to take a 360 ° shot in the middle of the room, so that as many seats as possible could be seen. How I got the camera to a height of 4m and mastered the extremely difficult lighting situation can be read in the Making Of.

Virtual 360° Tour of the international Sea Port in Wismar
Preview image of the virtual Tour of the international Seaport in Wismar
As a curious person, I am particularly grateful to receive assignments that give you insights into completely new worlds. One of these fantastic worlds is the seaport in Wismar. Goods such as road salt, scrap metals, timber and cars are loaded and unloaded there on an industrial scale - from ships to trucks and trains and vice versa. It was very eye-opening to get to know a small part of the gigantic international freight logistic and transport machinery.  You can find some of my 360° photos    when you click here >>>

The WaldFunkeln Lodge houses a number of luxuriously cozy apartments, co-working space, wellness and sauna area. It was important for the operator Christine Reppert that her high quality standards in the development of this hostel are also reflected in a virtual 360 ° tour. In addition to the 360 ​​° photographs, I also captured the entire building in classic pictures in two and a half days, all of which can be seen on the website www.waldfunkeln.com .



Die WaldFunkeln Lodge beherbergt ein Anzahl von luxuriös-gemütlichen Ferienwohnungen, Co-Working-Space, Wellness- und Saunabereich. Für die Betreiberin Christine Reppert war es wichtig, dass ihr hoher Qualitätsanspruch bei der Entwicklung dieser Herberge sich auch in einem virtuellen 360° Rundgang widerspiegelt. Neben den 360° Fotografien habe ich in zweieinhalb Tagen auch das gesamte Gebäude in klassischen Bildern festgehalten, die es allesamt auf der Webseite  www.waldfunkeln.com  zu sehen gibt.

As a "classic" event photographer, I have photographed countless live events, concerts and festivals over the past twenty years. In summer 2019 I was able to use our high-resolution 360 ° equipment for the first time to capture the full energy of a gig. A really big technical challenge!

360°-Photoshoot for Virtual Tour of the Holiday Inn (Berlin Schönefeld)

360° Aufnahmen im Holiday Inn Berlin Schönefeld von 360° Fotograf Stefan Klenke

This project, for which our company VR-EASY was commissioned, was about capturing the largest conference room of the Holiday Inn at Berlin Schönefeld Airport in high-quality 360 ° recordings. It should be clearly shown how versatile the 625m² large conference room can be used - to support the hotel in marketing the location.
For this purpose, I had the idea to take the panorama views from different points of view in the hall with different seating scenarios, so that in the end you can

 could cross-fade from one variant to the next - no matter in which direction you were looking. I marked the positions in the empty space and first photographed everything in the empty state. Over the next three days, the incredibly good team at the Holiday Inn had the colossal task of completely rebuilding the hall several times. This often took many hours. Then I photographed each usage variant for about 30 minutes and then everything was cleared away and the next setup was prepared. On those days I was happy that I only had to work behind the camera.

360°Photo of Live-Concert Stahlzeit in Familiengarten Eberswalde 23.8.2019

Dies ist ein Little Planet Bild auf Basis eines 360° Fotos von Stefan Klenke vom Konzert der Rammstein-Cover-Band Stahlzeit im Familiengarten Eberswalde am 23.8.2020

Ein hochauflösendes 360° Foto während eines Live-Gigs am Abend? Kein leichtes Unterfangen schon bei klassischen Fotoaufnahmen. Doch noch viele schwieriger bei 360°-Fotografie, da die Kamera nicht nur ein Bild macht - sondern sich in alle Richtungen dreht und dabei 12 Einzelbilder macht (oder sogar noch mehr - je nach Setup). Diese werden dann erst später zu einer Fotokugel zusammengenäht. Technisch muss dafür bei den Aufnahmen vieles beachtet werden, damit tatsächlich ein gutes 360°-Foto dabei enstehen kann. 

Bei Live-Gigs herrschen fast immer  extrem schwierige Lichtbedingungen. In einem Moment gibt es grellstes Licht von der Bühne, in der nächsten Sekunde kann es schon wieder rabenschwarz sein.  Noch dazu  Band bewegt sich die Band auch schnell und ständig - also könnten total verschwommen sein. 
Obendrauf gab es bei die Auflage v om Management nach dem 3. Song fertig zu sein. Also hatte ich nur ein paar Minuten Zeit, um die 360°-Aufnahme der echt guten  Rammstein-Cover Band Stahlzeit  in den Kasten zu kriegen. Unter diesen Extremen Bedingungen merkt man besonders, wie wichtig Erfahrung ist und wie wichtig, dass man sein Kit auch im Schlaf bedienen könnte. Und natürlich das richtige Equipment! Ich bin sehr zufrieden mit dem Ergebnis. Und die Band war auch echt der Hammer! 

Achja den Familiengarten in Eberswalde kann ich auch wärmstens empfehlen. Eigentlich sollte er Familien-Abenteuer-Erlebnisland heißen weil es super viele spannende Sachen zum Entdecken gibt - für Klein und Groß. Überzeugt euch selbst im Virtuellen Rundgang den ich fotografiert habe. LINK: VIRTUELLER RUNDGANG FAMILIENGARTEN EBERSWALDE

Big Challenges: 360° Photo of the Berliner Ensemble theatre

360° fotografie, berliner ensemble, virtuelle tour fotografie, stefan klenke, theater am schiffbauer damm,

1. Challenge: Low Light

For a pilot project by our company VR-EASY, I was asked to create a high-resolution 360 ° image of the main hall of the Berlin Ensemble. As many of the seats as possible should be visible in the picture. During the location check a few weeks before the shoot date, I immediately recognized the main challenges of this task. First: The hall is relatively dark for photo recordings. With 360 ° shots, I almost always shoot with a fairly closed aperture in order to achieve a large depth of field. This means that little light would reach the sensor. To compensate for this I had to work with fairly long exposure times between 10-20 seconds.

2. Challenge: Little Time

Actually, this would not be a big problem with classic photography - since it is relatively easy to achieve good, blur-free results with a tripod. With our high-quality 360 ° set-up, however, we not only take a photo to get a spherical photo, but in this case I needed 35 individual images (24mm focal length) in 3 HDR exposure levels for a particularly high resolution and exposure depth ( these individual images are only sewn together later using stitching software called PTGui). It took me over 30 minutes to photograph a single complete photo sphere! Not really a problem in a normal situation either - but time was against us in this case. We only had a 90-minute time window (including assembly) to get everything in the box - we had waited for this window for months - there is rarely an empty stage in a busy theater. The stagehands also had to start setting up a new piece on that day.

3. Challenge: 4m High Tripod

As I said, I also had the task of depicting as many seats as possible at the same time, something that I could only reach at a height of 4 meters in the middle of the hall. To get to this height, I rented a high tripod that my teammates had just installed in the narrow rows of seats. That means the setup cost us time and the recordings themselves too. And to check the shots I had to turn the camera down every time and then turn it up again. With that little time, there was no room for error. Everything had to be right.

And to cut a long story short: I nailed it. Phew The 360 ​​° result (30,332x15,166 pixels (460 megapixels) can be seen here:
