The Magic Cook

Cooking Magic

Cooking Magic | Portland | 2017

Street Photography captures life as it happens. Or as it not really happens. Like me making me a cook for a moment. In front of a Chinese restaurant in Portland.

I wonder what the cook must have thought, seeing the strange guy with a camera in front of his window, crouched down, inching his way sideways, upwards, downwards, in a desperate attempt to put his head on top of another body.  But the opportunity to become a cook for a moment was just to good to pass up.

In case you wonder why the cam is not at the photographer’s eye? Thanks to the rotatable LCD screen of my PEN-F.

Taken with my Olympus PEN-F and the 12mm F/2 prime lens. Image specs 1/60 sec @ f/2 and ISO 1600.

Have a great Wednesday!

The day was too beautiful not to use it for some shooting in town, so I escaped for an hour into Nuremberg’s Old Town in the late afternoon of this last day of September. It was surprisingly warm, and everybody enjoyed what was potentially the last warm day of summer. Inspired by the atmosphere I was consciously looking for scenes of kids and their parents having fun together. I like giving me these small photographic assignments, it helps me to quickly focus and get into the flow (especially when I have only limited time for shooting) and to train visual awareness. I was with my Olympus PEN-F and the mZuiko 14-150mm F/4-5.6 travel zoom. For the rest of this series continue after the jump… (more…)

What is more refreshing than seeing kids having fun? All the more when they enjoy themselves with something as traditional as soap bubbles (aka rainbow bubbles or Seifenblasen in German)? (more…)
