Autumn shoots with the Yashica (Part 2)

The second half of the Fuji Superia 400 in the Yashica had been shot during a wonderful family trip at the south of Austria. We have picked an easy trail close to Arnfels this time but one packed with nice scenery and experiences. We have…

Grüner See

What would a photographer do if he  would suddenly need to carry an ever moving child on his back to every location he would take photos? Of course he would use the new situation in order to justify a new purchase of a lens for the sake…

Being a tourist

It is not easy to be a tourist. Visiting popular places has the obvious disadvantage  that they are already photographed from every possible angles at every possible time of the year. So what can a photographer do who is short on time and cannot afford…

Livin’ Streets on Ektachrome

Walls are usually not the most exciting subjects to photograph. To use medium format slide film to do that is even more strange and could be considered as some sort of crime by some. After all we live in a time when both film and labs which are able…

Österreichischer Skulpturenpark

Underpass music

I admire very much photographers who are able to do street photography of any kind either shooting invisibly or by asking strangers for a photo. Although I love these kind of photographs I was not dare to do anything like this therefore. As you have probably noticed…

Light pollution

After the rather technical post about the true beauty Exakta Varex II, I thought it is about time to come up with something easier to digest.  I looked into my photo-stream on Flickr and found these shoots I took back in 2009. I had such…

Post apocalyptic atmosphere

I am a huge fun of post apocalyptic movies, games and atmosphere overall. In fact I really would like to participate or work on such a movie one day. Of course being a mortal I have very little chance to do it, but I had to realize…

Roll diary

Introduction Being a camera addict I usually carry around at least 2-3 cameras of different kinds. Most of the time I have my actual favorite film camera in my bag plus a small compact for measuring the light. This set is mixed up with my…
