Fujifilm X100S – “the pocket-XPro”

Never wanted to write one of these “it’s been a little quiet here” posts, but it actually¬†was a little quiet here ūüė¶ 2013 has been busy so far, since I started to earn some money with my photography besides my main job as a sales manager. My respect goes to all those brave freelancers and full-time professionals out there, I just dipped my toe…

First day on the street with the Fujifilm X-Pro1

Don’t worry, I’m not going to write a pseudo-review about this camera (there are tons of that stuff on the web), and I’ll neither bore you with my personal “first impressions”¬†or something like that (not yet). I just shot some test-frames on the streets of Frankfurt/Main today and would like to share them. I¬†hadn’t planned to shoot this special event, but as soon as…

Berlin Calling – Part 3: shooting film is hard work!

My scanner was glowing in the dark after scanning the last¬†frame of my recent trip to berlin! Damn, I¬†know that shooting film causes a lot of work compared to digital and I always have fun while scanning my frames and getting¬†them ready for the screen, but after roll no. 10 of this project¬†my motivation began to decrease…

Berlin Calling – Part 2: the truth is analog

Summing¬†up the digital shots of my berlin trip was quite an easy job compared to the work 23 rolls of film cause. To get this task done without¬†ruining my¬†marriage (scanning takes a lot of time), I¬†divided the negatives into two blocks. Yesterday I finished digitizing the rolls of Friday (22.07.) and Saturday (23.07.)…

Berlin Calling – Part 1: the digital summary

Street Sunday

Great!¬†My wife Daniela¬†decided to¬†get herself an Olympus PEN E-PM1 (Mini)¬†this autumn (so maybe I’ll get my E-P2 back then :-)).¬†Of course¬†I’m trying to gently introduce her to some photographic disciplines now. This sunday we went for a walk on Frankfurts¬†“Zeil” to have a coffee and discover something like “soft street-photography”. But after all she’s a girl: The fun is over as soon as it…

Tri-X’ing around

Because of the public-holiday tomorrow, this wednesday felt like a virtually friday and so I had time to scan some film. This time I started with a roll of KODAK Professional Tri-X 400 which I shot on the street last thursday. I’ve heard a lot of great¬†stories about this film¬†and even a photojournalist I met a few months ago, told me that Tri-X was…

Latest news from the streets

Brand new photoblog¬†here,¬†but dozens of “old” photos on FlickR. However I won’t start¬†flooding my blog with posts full of pictures from the past (only 1-2 posts will follow-up). I’d just like¬†to catch up with a few shots of my recent “street work” until some fresh frames will come up during this week…
