no mirror, no cry

while packing for the legendary (and once again last) annual “duke” mtb race – this year being dubbed “duke of trash” since the location has been a former waste dump – i pondered bout taking the LX3 with me.. mh.
seconds later i had unpacked the nikon gear and filled my bag with a sony R1, some light and well, the LX3 – so no mirror-flapping for me that day..

astro2k and one.

fast backward 2001. the time when video was still watched on those bulky square tubes in the livingroom, mainly transported on brown ribbons wound up on coils in black plastic boxes.
i was asked to shoot photos at a regatta down in croatia, and as i’m there, maybe i could shoot some video-footage of one of the teams – they’ll bring a camera..

silent night

couple of days ago i felt the need to get out into the snow, though freezing cold – someone gotta test camera’s batteries anyhow 8) the planned short walk then took over 3 hours, back home past 2 in the morning..

my main goal of course has been our village’s castle, as it’s lights could give nice effects with lower fog, but unfortunately the fog wasn’t that low.. but with snow and all this light-pollution around here one can shoot at night nowadays at speeds nobody ever would have thought of couple of years ago!.. did i mention lately i actually *love* light-pollution? ;)

all done with bibble 5, just some tweaking of colors/whitebalance, no photoshop.

no more sportograf

this in german for a change, as it mainly might concern local folks anyways. it’s about my cooperation (and why i ended it) with the event-photoservice sportograf in 2007/08 – which prove way less enjoyable than many, esp. their clients might have expected.

steaming sugar

on my way home from a job the other day i simply couldn’t pass a big sugar refinery where there were just huge piles of steam towering up against the partly cloudy moon-lit sky.. unfortunately the steam was quite a bit less yet when i found my first spot to shoot, but still i thought it would be a nice test-drive for the nikon’s night-abilities which i omitted to test till now..
