This is the rest of 2013 and what happened in november and december. All 35mm, all b&w film. Have fun!

i5821One bad thing about winter, it gets dark at about 4pm. i5848Neustadt > Nuremberg. Konica Hexar AF, Trix @ 1600 in HC-110. i5845I did some experimenting that resulted in a pretty long dev time. So, harsh contrasts = bad tonal range = dense negs = massive grain. i5831 i5829 i5823Reading. i5865Two shots from a roll of regular Tri-X- Ida in class.i5887i5893 i5894Erlangen night.i5895 i5901Having coffee at our grandmas place. i5899Just as one would imagine it.i5907 i5911 i5916-2Mother and daughter.i5917Coffee break?i5925 i5930Stephan is mostly shooting new APX 400 these days that he was gifted, so i got curious and shot a roll too. Prof. Schopper during film class, discussing our commercial projects. i5933X. So, APX in the Hexar, Rodinal 1+25. i5935More illustration stuff.i5939 i5940Wednesday nights graphic design class.i5942The next day, we decided so shoot some quick footage stuff for our commercial to replace our animatic. Way faster and way more flexible.i5943 i5945Fresh paint WALLS! i5947Now thats a real camera.i5952End of a romance? i5954I like how his jacket matches the needles and the trash can matches the booths. Just geeky stuff…i5957 i5958Funny scene.i5962 i5963He passed by running and i noticed his broken briefcase in the blink of an eye. Quite a close call, but that kind of is what all this is about.i5964 i6965Another Tri-X @ 1600, still a tiny bit too warm, but were getting there…i6970 i6971Actually, i like the Christkindlesmarkt, tough it gets very very crowded as soon as it gets dark. But its a great spot for getting to know and taking photos of interesting people. i6974 i6975Lost pug.i6977K4 darkroom, where ill probably hang out more often soon.i6978Waitingi6979Movingi6981And more waiting againi6982 i6983i6989Santa and his puppy? need a cig break too.i6993 i6994Next round.i6998This was supposed to be about the font.i6999 i7004Regular Tri-Xi7005Getting some supplies.i7006Back at uni. Michi, who is a professional sports photographer, was quite surprised by how quick and silent the Hexar is. Guess he’ll have to get one since he’s looking for a everyday camera and its just a badass camera. i7007Discussing some ideas for our podcast. i7008Michis D700 with some older 35 nikon lens.i7012Tanja, always being curious.i7016I dont even know who took this one.i7022Ludwig drawing.i7023Max working on his “Typemonster”, which is like a character built only with letters and numbers, and then animated and then composed.i7024Stephan and i decided to scan some of his rolls from last summer instead.i7025Emmai7028Nico impressing the girls and Jonas recording the card-flipping with some 1000fps App. i7030Sebastiani7033 i7039Finishing i7040_M6_CBIO_HP5_1600_HC110Guess what. Got me an M6 again. Tadaaa. Chrome one with MP lever. Ran out of film and bought some cheapo HP5+ at the store (=7.95€ lol) for the night. @1600 in HC-110. I waited for Stephan to pick me up for a vernissage.

    Wie immer großartige Momentaufnahmen! Vor allem deine Uni-Fotos transportieren eine tolle Stimmung (und ich komme wieder ins grübeln ob ich nicht auch noch ein Studium angehen sollte).

    Warum hast du wieder eine M6 gekauft, vermisst du an der M2 etwas?

  2. fractal art
