  1. 5 (+1) Frames - Ultra Large Nebelhorn

    15 Sep 2019
    On a sunny day in the middle of September I decided to go on a trip up the Nebelhorn. I deliberately chose this destination, because I had planned for a long time to go up a mountain in the Alps to use my 8”x10” (20x25cm) camera up there. I made…

  2. 5 Frames - Austria With The Nikon F5 And 50mm f1.2

    13 Sep 2019
    The images in this post are from a 3 day trip to Austria with a group of colleagues (similar to the trip to Ibiza). I took the Nikon F5 with the Nikkor 50mm f/1.2 attached with me and took a couple of shots on site. The film that I tried…

  3. 5 Frames - Boulder With A Leica M4-P

    09 Sep 2019
    As the avid reader might have guessed, I quite enjoy shooting with my Leica M4-P. It may not come as a surprise then, that on a trip during the early days of 2018, I took the camera and its mate (the Voigtländer Color Scopar 35mm) with me to the town…

  4. 5 Frames - New York With A Leica M4-P

    08 Sep 2019
    Another week, another trip to New York. This time I spent my free time walking around in Manhattan south of Central Park. One day along the High Line, another day along Broadway up to Central Park, which had a lot of police presence because of the New York Marathon. In…

  5. 5 Frames - Ibiza With A Leica M4-P And Voigtländer Color Skopar 35mm f/2.5 VM II Pancake

    07 Sep 2019
    Once upon a time, on an island far, far away. Well, not that far, but still far enough to warrant the use of a plane. It was the summer of 2017 and somehow I ended up at a large hotel complex on the island of Ibiza. Three days (including arrival…

  6. Scanning Film The Right Way

    07 Sep 2019
    A couple of days ago, while browsing 35mmc, I came by an article written by Mark Sperry on scanning at home with a Pacific Image XA. He mentioned (my interpretation), that scanning isn’t easy: To get great images, you have to put some effort into learning how to use the…

  7. 5 Frames - At A Lake With A 800mm Sigma And A Nikon F5

    05 Sep 2019
    Once upon a time, in a bout of temporal insanity (happens more often than I dare admit), I bought an 800mm f/5.6 Sigma behemoth of a lens. Why, you ask? To scratch one of those annoying “I want that!” itches, that beset one’s mind without rhyme or reason. I started…

  8. 5 Frames - Mono Lake With A Hasselblad 503cx

    03 Sep 2019
    Road trips can be awesome. As it so happens, once upon a time I was on a road trip from Las Vegas, through Death Valley up towards Lake Tahoe and then San Francisco. It was the path a colleague and myself took to get from a conference in Las Vegas…

  9. 5 Frames - A Tele Rolleiflex 135mm f/4 In New York Central Park

    01 Sep 2019
    Whenever I have a chance to visit New York, I take the time to walk around for a bit. Each time I try to take a different camera (feel free to expect more posts involving the city that never sleeps). The first time I visited the big apple, I was…

  10. 5 Frames - A Texas Leica In Sydney

    31 Aug 2019
    About a year after moving to the south of Germany, I had the opportunity to travel to Sydney (Australia) for business reasons. With a stay of 2 weeks, this was an excellent excuse to give my first (before, I only had the Mamiya RB67 that I borrowed from my dad)…
