It has been twenty years …

It was in the last millennium when I last loaded an analogue film into a SLR. Twenty years ago I bought my first digital camera. Since then I never shot another film photograph. But this is about to change.  Today I bought my very first roll of film in twenty years. And I’m looking very much forward to insert it into this 1970 SLR and take it onto the Streets of Nuremberg for some retro – decelerated photography. Stay tuned for the results.

Wish you a great Wednesday!

Some thoughts on monochrome shooting

A concert to remember

P2021407

Last night I took The Significant Other downtown Nuremberg to visit a concert by the Zurich based Indie-Folk-Pop Band Steiner & Madlaina. I used the opportunity to try my hand at some concert photography using my Olympus PEN-F with the mZuiko 75mm F/1.8 prime lens.

Buy books not gear (2)

IMG_7501With my first episode of “buy books not gear” drawing a huge response, here is the second edition of my new series about great photography books I own and which, by studying them, most likely help me improve my photography much more than buying yet another new camera or lens (ever heard about G.A.S. ?)

This post is about Elliott Erwitt’s coffee table book “Snaps”. For the book introduction and a few of Elliott’s photographs continue after the jump… Continue reading “Buy books not gear (2)”

Shoot one photo a day

I get it..even we as passionate photographers don’t get to go shooting everyday. The job, the family, other things to do. Grabbing the camera bag and doing some meaningful photography takes time.

But there is no reason not to do some “on the fly” photography every day. We all carry our cellphones around, and all of those have decent cameras built in. So why not use your phone to do some “visual push-ups” every day?

This photo was taken last night when The Significant Other and myself went downtown to see a play. When I saw the staircase of the Schauspielhaus in Nuremberg, I just had to take a picture. My visual push-up of the day!

Have a great Friday!
