I have to admit that my titles are 100% sponsored by Sir Karl Random. Great stuff. He’s very generous, he sometimes helps me out on Deviantart and even Flickr.
Anyway, I developed a roll of Tmax400 in the Tmax developer and finally got nice looking negatives:
Wuzzeln at Morgenstern. Classic.
Sebastian being Sebastian being very lovely. The blur adds a lot of atmosphere and makes it autentic! :$
Tmax400 is the way more precise film – if the frame is underexposed, it does show. There is no extra punch like with 400TX. Definitely not a film that I’ll shoot again when I’m in a dark hardly lit pub. Talking like that makes me very important!
Still highly influenced by HCB thus this is a decisive moment.
The other day on the night bus. A bit cynical.
Skin tones are very nice with Tmax400. I like.
I overexposed this frame and corrected with Photoshop. Great.
Fast food. Funny, I don’t want to but I have lots of fast food in summer… I’m afraid, summer and fast food somewhat belong together. Yet another gripping story of my life – and I’m afraid there are many, many more.
Whenever we have fast food at that Mc Donalds she has to check out the book store. She loves books.
Of course, I’m always a good jerk. “You dork.”
Time to throw in some random public transport shot. Hey, and she’s an old lady – that’s definitely worth some extra points.
A photographer that I’ll be assisting next week. The bike (Ducati Monster) is his. Interesting. Oh, before you ask: I’m neither into bikes nor cars. I couldn’t care less.
Bet he’s looking for some Eitrige there.
Haha, now, the real funny stuff: COLOR!
I’ve made the terrible mistake of loading a roll of Superia200, expose it and actually bring it in. To Leutner this time. I must say, Leutner did a fine job. See for yourself.
This is the 3rd frame on the film. Fancy scratch. Course, could be a lightning striking through the store. Who knows? Weirdest things happen these days. Countries get invaded for not existing WMD. Funny stuff. Anyway, I’m pretty sure it was the lens. Lenses can scratch film – I’m sure. THIS NEVER HAPPENED IN THE COURSE OF DEVELOPMENT. N E V E R. It’s a professional lab for god sake – professionals care for quality and they know how to make your negatives shine. Of course, those weird water marks might occur from time to time but who’d be that picky anyway? WHO? Right. The stupid paranoid amateurs who actually think they have a clue! HOW DARING? They are not even 1/10th of an Erwin Wurm. Funny folks. Oh, before I forget, same frame with ICE (and some color corrections) activated:
Seems like lightnings are afraid of ICE these days. Man, that’s so cool. ;wackel – now I just have to find an enlarger with ICE! WAIT! I COULD PRINT THIS DIGITALLY. AND ACTUALLY SHOP IT! ADD DRAMA AND STORY. MAYBE SOME CUT OFF LEG! Maybe make it even wide angle with some fancy plugin. Smooth over it with Neat Imag – nice. ;wackel
I really want the 50/2 Planar.
“Stop staring at my butt, you jerk.”
This is so vintage, it actually makes me feel warm inside. HI KEVIN!
Come to Vienna – happy faces everywhere.
Hide and seek for advanced.
Safer Sex is serious business – it could happen everywhere. Better be prepared.
What a daring perspective. And the exposure. And the dust. Oh man, so very +fav.
Ok, enough color. For some time I’m afraid.
400TX again. It’s nice to know that you can rely on something. Very fancy self.
Yet another classic Viennese lady.
Friends-forever share Pussy Cat Dolls. Cute.
I’m sure she’s reading about lots of serious business. The hand to chin gesture shows.
Severin and a bottle of coke. He made sure that there is absolutely no coke left inside. He did a fine job.
Severin and one of his biggest idols. What a lovely Sunday afternoon – weird people, some guy horribly playing Oasis and Smashing Pumpkins and right between that guy. Vienna.
I still like the scene but it reminds me to get an ND filter. Whatever. I take lots of shots at that place. Gripping.
Spying on old ladies. Classic. I should make a book.
She was deeply impressed by my camera but her mother gave me that suspicios look. So I guessed exposure and focus – I’m very happy how it turned out. Heh.
At a meeting.
We had barbecue. I like the shots – feel free to skip them. They won’t get much more interesting.
Chicken and its side effects.
Claire and Leonardo.
Talking about the future of wedding photography.
Leonardo talking about things that don’t make sense.
Leonardo wondering why I’m still taking pictures without flash. OH MY GAWD RANGEFINDERZ ARE THE PWN!!
Minor moment. I admit, I stole that from Florian.
Oh really? Does it come in interesting?
“I gonna get you all – don’t resist, it’s useless…”
Serious business conversations. I like how it seems to be layered. Uh, interested. +fav (old ladies in the back – awesome!)
We went to Boesner the next day which is a huge art supply store.
Really huge. Lots of stuff. Loads of.
Haha, I don’t know what was so funny but we were cutting some paper. Interesting.
It’s hard to capture peoples real smile. I’m happy with this one.
Of course, I’ve been jerkelicious.
Doh. Thank you.
Waiting for something to happen. On my way to a wedding.
Ingrid Fabiola is staying in Vienna. Hey!
On my way to the darkroom from a meeting with a couple. I decided to shoot random stuff – finishing the roll of 400TX.
Lots of random stuff.
Dedicated to Miriam and Severin.
Pretty long entry but I haven’t posted anything in quite some time. Hope you like. Hm, I actually had a fancy idea for the blog but I – of course – forgot. Might pop into my poor mind again. Might. Until then, take care and have a great summer (it’s definitely here – at least here in Austria),
