Die von mir eingesetzten Filme waren TRIX und efke 25 /50, die Entwickler waren Agfa Rodinal […]

In favour of analogue – Unlimited Grain Bookproject
Wedding and Portrait photographer Edward Olive’s photostream on flickr is really worth a visit. He often uses light in this great, classic Hollywood manner. His photos speak a unique language of light. Together with other photographers, he started a project I want to point you to (text from the Flickr Photopage of the shown photo […]

on Steichen’s suit – the Flatiron building
As flickr user Scottoo remarked, my try of a winter shot of the Flatiron building was inspired by Steichen. I had the privilege to see an original print of this picture at a Steichen exhibit at South Sea Port / NYC in Oct. 2010 and was moved by the strength and simplicity of this picture. […]

Medium Format Examples

Medium Format Examples

I tried another approach while I am in New York on a business trip with a Hasselblad (waistlevel finder) medium format SLR.

Strange Selfie – Lomo Spinner 360

Strange Selfie – Lomo Spinner 360
This is an example of a easy done, but strange Selfie- The Lomo Spinner 360 takes a (more than) 360 degrees pano shot, so I was on the pic two times. The camera really is of low quality, mine failed after only 15 films (and was replaced without problems by the Lomo shop Vienna). The […]

Shooting Travelphotography with a foldable Medium Format camera

Shooting Travelphotography with a foldable Medium Format camera
This is an example of the first ten 120-format films I shot, self-developed and scanned. There is quite a lot to learn, so I am far from good at this. An Ilford Delta 3200 ISO film was used for this shot of a street in Dresden in the evening, the Voigtländer Bessa III was my […]
