04/2014: Clouds under a bridge

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.


i8007_HEXAR_EKTAR_TETHeres 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

03/2014: Among friends

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

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.

01/2014: Between the years

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.… Continue reading

07/2013: Old friends new friends

Still sort of in between things. Uni started about a month ago now. We have to take all ten major courses (photography, film/animation, graphic design, typography, cast [like in podcast], space design, interaction, cgi, illustration and verbal communication) this semester and were doing more and more real projects which is very cool. Kind of the complete opposite to engineering classes at tech uni a couple of years ago. We are only about 50 people that are curiously getting to know each other. Very cool people i have to say. And since the only condition for the qualifying test was to be creative in any way (photo/film/animation/illustration/whatever), it is quite a challenge to figure out what anybodies talents are.… Continue reading

06/2013: in transition

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

05/2013: “I think you should keep doing that as a hobby.”

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
