Culture shock? Bound to happen

Von | General | Keine Kommentare

A few days prior to my first trip to India, which was on business, I was on a phone call with an Indian colleague, who I was going to meet there. He inquired whether I had been to India before. When I said no, his impish response was „Oh, this will be very interesting for you then.“ I considered myself cosmopolitan and well-travelled, so I explained that I had been to various countries on most continents, including developing countries and and alien cultures. He replied with a sentence that I’m not likely to forget anytime soon: „Oh no, trust me, the scale of the chaos is much bigger in India than anywhere else“.

Scotland, you’re such a drama queen

I don’t know how else to put it right now. The Scottish landscape was truly amazing. Of course I had guessed beforehand that Scotland would have quite a bit to offer in terms of scenery, so I made sure to equip myself accordingly upgrade my equipment for the trip. I had added a wide angle lens to my gear, as well as a set of ND filters for long exposures during the day. I packed my tripod anyway. The outcome was not all that surprising: Anytime I spotted a photogenic lake, stream, or beach, I stopped for a long-time exposure shot, which involved time consuming setup of equipment including tripod. This was much to the dismay of those travelling with me. There were „unfortunately“ too many picturesque locations in Scotland.

Portraits with Annabelle in Mainz

Von | General | Keine Kommentare

In August I was finally able to go back to portraits. My schedule had been busy for quite a while, so it had been a while since my last session. In Mainz, I met up with a photographer/friend as well as Annabelle, who would model for some portraits. She even took some time in her Saturday evening for this, which was great. I was really looking forward to this, all the more since I was going to use my „new“ film camera, the elegant medium-format Pentax 67. Of course I did not completely ditch my digital camera that day, which is why I am showing you a mix of film and digital shots in this gallery.
