My private blog contains my subjective world view regarding photography and art. And it´s also a news feed regarding my new work, e.g. recently published images and editorials. See also the Tag cloud here or the Categories here.

Analog? Sometimes.

Using an old analog camera for film with its manual lens can be painful and fascinating together. You know that not every image will be sharp, dynamic range could be narrow and its not possible to check the image immediately after the shot. And finally the image quality of 35mm film is inferior to digital photos. But the look and feel of an anlog film is different and in some cases I like it. Sometimes I use film in the people photography where it is not necessary to see any micro detail and I love the rough silver grain of a Kodak Tri-X 400 or Ilford HP5 film in combination with bokeh caused by wide open lenses.

The following example is from my last shooting with film.
