Bad printing on your test chart, in focus, that's what you want to see!

Bad printing on your test chart, in focus, that’s what you want to see!

Took up bird photography lately. Using the 200 – 500 mm f/5.6 supertelezoom on my Nikon D850, I was getting good results, I thought. But when I reached for more reach,

Ku’damm shadows

The first film from out of the 0-series replica Leica has been developed and I’m pleasantly surprised by the results. So, here are some shots I took with it in Berlin, on and around the Ku’damm. All on Kodak Portra 800.

In a hurry. So was I, not properly focussed, camera shake. Like it for it's errors.

Vanilla ice cream, Apfelstrudel and a 45.7 megapixel beast

I’m being ungrateful and have been replacing the Nikon D800 that served me so well shooting the wedding with a new body. Ten days ago at Photokina, mirrorless system cameras were all the rage.
