Never wanted to write one of these “it’s been a little quiet here” posts, but it actually was a little quiet here 😦
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 into the pro-water and am soooo glad to have that financial backing of my main job. Furthermore its kind of nice to switch to “non-photographic” thoughts now and then.
By the way, that’s why I also have some changes/updates regarding this website on my agenda – but filed this under “Priority: C” at the moment…

I also love the unique look of film and the classic DOF-control of the 135-format (with those great fast lenses from the film era). But I don’t love the amount of time, film-photography eats up. Actually, I just don’t have enough spare time anymore to shoot film on a daily basis. Unfortunately 😦
Of course, I could just grab my Fujifilm X-Pro1 and enjoy the benefits of digital photography – but in spite of the Fuji’s serious retro-feeling, there’s always something missing for me. So I was looking for something between the ultrahigh-resolution-EverythingByWire-digital-world, and the charming slow, manual, organic and often imperfect world of film-photography.
And since there isn’t a digital back for my OM-cameras, here’s the compromise I found for me…

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 I stepped out of the parking garage, I found myself in the middle of an anti-capitalism protest.
It’s like Frank Jackson said: “sometimes I happen to photography, and sometimes photography happens to me…”
