Hello. Here come some rooty tooty fresh and fruity pictures for your amusement. Enjoy.
Hello folks. Time flies and so this post is about both some older stuff from summer and some recent things from the current semester. Hannover, District Ride, family time, new friends, workshop, some sunny days on Island Rügen, artsy fartsy designers stuff. Have fun looking through this one!
Side note: Although the comments section does not give it away, i keep getting more and more feedback on the blog. Not only from photo people but also from friends and strangers i did not think would be interested in this kind of photography. This makes me very proud and encouraged about the whole “project”.… Continue reading
Constantly shooting all kinds of stuff. Here are some more frames from Summer 2014. And i also found another great piece of music for this post, the new David Guetta single. lol.
Cruisin around the Dutzendteich.

Got something for me?
Printing some stuff at uni + shooting some Trix in the Leica M6 (ID-11 since i ran out of Xtol)
Graduation exhibition.… Continue reading
The semester is over, projects are finished, exhibitions closed, equipment cleaned up and stored. We are not traveling much this summer except for a trip up to the Baltic Sea in September. We both work several days a week and do much work on the apartment. Theres a lot of family and friends and chillout time. Holiday season stuff. Im shooting all kinds of stuff with 35mm and medium format, b/w and color, and develop a lot of films at home.
Also i hope to finish work on the darkroom an my uncles place this summer. Its actually ready for use except for the tap water supply and waste water disposal.… Continue reading
The last weeks have really been exhausting, but in a good way. Since we’re doing real projects in classes instead of taking exams or tests, the semester ends with a big bang and everybody is hasting through the labs and hallways on their way to finish all kinds of exhibition stuff, portfolios, posters, web pages, essays, darkroom prints, movies or installations. People are stressed because of tight schedules, frustrated because of problems with computers, printers, programs, enlargers and all kinds of other stuff and at the same time happy because the semester is almost done and the summer season is ahead of us.… Continue reading
Some new and not so new stories because i just started developing C-41 again. Lots of uni stuff, exhibs, festivals, excursions and of course photo class stuff going on. Some personal frames in between too. Im shooting a lot lately and i wouldnt wanna miss it. Not as much street as i would like to though, but that’ll change soon.
Heres what happens if youre shooting with several cameras: Your chronological order will be pretty much fucked up. We ordered some film and paper for the photoclass and also two Tetenal C-41 Kits. So i started developing color negative film again in the lab at uni.… Continue reading
Things are on a constant move. The second semester of design studies has started and it is damn fun. We’re permanently learning a lot of stuff. Not in a here-go-read-that-800-pages-book-about-mechanical-engineering kind of way i got used to in the past but in a learning-by-doing kind of way which is very very cool. Plus i’m getting to know more and more people better, not only from my class but from all the design classes. They’re nothing but great. Besides that, Olga and i are more than happy in our new home and im still working on instead of in the darkroom. So here are some new pictures and stories.… Continue reading
This is the rest of 2013 and what happened in november and december. All 35mm, all b&w film. Have fun!
One bad thing about winter, it gets dark at about 4pm. Neustadt > Nuremberg. Konica Hexar AF, Trix @ 1600 in HC-110. I did some experimenting that resulted in a pretty long dev time. So, harsh contrasts = bad tonal range = dense negs = massive grain. Reading. Two shots from a roll of regular Tri-X- Ida in class. Erlangen night. Having coffee at our grandmas place. Just as one would imagine it. Mother and daughter.Coffee break? Stephan is mostly shooting new APX 400 these days that he was gifted, so i got curious and shot a roll too.… Continue reading
Things keep changing continuously. Uni started a week ago and i feel that for my head its not a common thing to switch from a serious and conventional full-time job “back” to a very impulsive and unbound way of living. This is kind of a complex and ongoing process that is not just limited on my work life and 8-to-5 schedule but rather has a distinct influence on my way of dealing with unfamiliar situations, my social behaviour and my self-perception in general. This is going to be a completely new chapter, its stories i will begin to share in the next post.… Continue reading
Oh boy its another template again! I cant help it. To be honest im not even sorry. I just love to play with css. Whatever. This post will be rather personal than other ones, for reasons. Lots of pictures about family stuff of course. But also some stories about my work life or profession or whatever you may call it. You know that feeling when you go to work everyday and it feels ok? Not great, just ok. You do it because you can, because you get paid for it, because its comfortable. You just function and do stuff and you tell yourself “well it may not be what i dreamt of but a time will come.… Continue reading
