02/2015: Red chairs

I haven’t had much time for the blog lately, so this post was queuing for quite a while now, several months actually. In case you notice something weird in some frames, thats actual snow, which dates the image back to last winter. I’m currently right in the middles of semester 4 of Design study and as always working on several projects at the same time. Quick overview: New CI for “Türkisch-Deutsches Filmfestival Nürnberg” in typo class, a book about fonts in graphic class and several small photo projects to topics such as “home” and “rituals” for photo class.

Some of the photo projects will soon be on the website which im currently updating with new images.… Continue reading

05/2014: Two Lovers

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

02/2014: On the move on the spot

Here are some new frames. Still almost all 35mm. Since i’ve been busy with uni stuff, work and also moving to a new place, i did not feel much like taking well-composed mf shots, but rather like documenting all kinds of things quick and dirty with the rangefinder family.

04/2013: on the streets and on the water

Ongoing changes. I somehow felt like switching to something brighter for the blog during the summer, hope you like it. If not, let me know. Quick and dirty, here are some facts about this entry. Gear: Sold the Lux, bought a CV Nokton. Bought a Fuji 6×9. Found out WP changes this into a pretty nice ASCII ×. Film&Dev: I ran out of Xtol some weeks ago, which is why i decided to experiment a little more like i did some time ago. The classic Trix/Acris/Xtol combo works very very well for me and i think i made my way through it and created a workflow that fits my needs quite perfectly.… Continue reading

02/2013: skiing and lots of random central station stuff

Hey, ill be writing in english from now on. To be honest, it just bores me that there are about 2-3 people within a range of say 300km around Nuremberg who shoot street/reportage/documentary/whatever one may call it what i’m doing. Im well aware that theres a distinct concentration of photographers in large cities, although i find it kinda weird that Vienna seems to be some sort of street-maniac-magnet. Over here, nothing, tough i’ve been out on the Nuremberg streets for a couple of years now. Oh yeah well, i once saw this guy with what i guess was a rangefinder, shooting not in that typical 45 degree tourist pose (“wow look at that amazing church!” – “better use the flash for some extra sharpness!… Continue reading

Durchgezogen: Bilder mit der Olympus XA #1

So, mittlerweile habe ich mit der kleinen Olympus zwei Filme verschossen. Eine kleine Auswahl des ersten Filmes gibt’s nun hier. Hab leider vergessen was es genau war, glaube ein APX oder Delta 100. Außerdem war ich faul, DM hat für mich entwickelt. Was soll’s. Die Kamera ist klasse, bildet erstaunlich gut ab, das Handling ist zunächst fummelig, dann gewöhnungsbedürftig, später genial.

Komm spielen! Die Olympus XA

Hurra, endlich mal wieder eine Kameravorstellung. Heute möchte ich euch mal eine kleine, feine, oft unterschätze und als Spielzeugknipse abgetane, in Wirklichkeit aber durchaus interessante Kamera näherbringen. Die gute alte Olympus XA. Auf den ersten Blick ziemlich klein, auf den zweiten….naja auch noch klein, aber durchaus voller Potential. Los geht’s.… Continue reading
