Weird things that really exist :-)

OK, I have to admit, the idea is stolen from a pic I saw today in Tagesanzeiger which I could not believe to exist before I googled it (and took the shot myself as well) 🙂

Me against the scanner

Me against the scanner or that moment in time when you do not understand after the 10th attempt why your scanner settings produce a crappy scan – and you actually like it 🙂

Another picture from my recent try out of my 500 C/M in the studio with a fresnel spot/flash. As the film, an Ektar 800, was 12 years over it’s date, I was wondering how the results would look. I did not much like the color thus I did a colored bw version. Scanned with a Nikon Coolscan 9000 you can literally see each corn of grain in the original sized picture. Btw. the strong shadow is on purpose as I try to start a series with a fresnel light and the lighting of the portrait pictures of the 30ies/40ies of the last century…

Finally I tried my 500 C/M a first time in the studio with a fresnel spot/flash. As the film, an Ektar 800, was 12 years over it’s date, I was wondering how the results would look. I did not much like the color thus I did a colored bw version. Scanned with a Nikon Coolscan 9000 you can literally see each corn of grain in the original sized picture.

Size matters :-)

There are times when size matters 🙂 e.g. when you loose a segment of your boat with eight people because the public cruise ship made waves that are higher than the structure of the 16 people boat could bare. That duel of the “The rudder duel on the Limmat” yesterday went definitively to the blue ones from the UZH 🙂

Hasselblad and the Tatoo

One of my favorite shootings in a while.

It’s quit funny to go back to analog and wait two weeks until you see your shots. Picture is from a studio shooting with Sara, a very special young lady with a tremendous sense of humor (we laughed a lot)…
(Hasselblad 500/C, Planar 1.35/100, TMAX 400, at 3.5/ 1/125)
