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…

Yes, I’ve been to the Photokina 2012 fair. And I had a camera with me…

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…”

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…

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.)…
