  • Beautiful Rhine landscapes

    Beautiful Rhine landscapes

    A week ago or so I was on a beautiful hike through the Niederwald near Rüdesheim with some colleagues from AOE. I’ve actually never been to Rüdesheim before, despite living “close” all my life. I brought my Fujifilm X-Pro1 and the Konica Hexanon 40mm f1.8 lens.

    Plants at the Zoo

    Last weekend we went to the Frankfurt Zoo and of course I took my camera with me. I decided to go with the Fujifilm X-Pro1 and Konica Hexanon 28mm F3.5 lens. With a crop factor of 1.5 the 28mm lens is a 42mm lens equivalent. I really like the 28mm F3.5 both on my analog…

    13 years ago, in 2010, I went outside at night and took a bunch of “light painting” photos. By setting the camera to a long exposure (8s in this case) and “drawing” in the air with a flashlight these lines are created. It was a fun evening and from looking at the photo now it’s…

    Some recent street snaps

    It’s been a while since I last posted some photos here. The year so far has been rather uninspiring and I didn’t get out a lot. I’m looking forward to warmer days and more time outside. 🙂

    A cold walk in the park

    The weather was really nice today, -6 degree Celsius with bright sunshine, so I headed out to the Kurpark to take some photos. I’m just falling more and more in love with the Fujifilm X-Pro 1, it gets me excited to go out and take photos! All photos are straight out of camera with no…

  • A bunch of selfies on pushed film

    A bunch of selfies on pushed film

    “Pushing film” means you shoot a film at a higher ISO than what it is rated for. Shooting a 100 ISO film at 200 ISO means it’s pushed +1 or “one stop”. Shooting it at 400 means it’s pushed +2 or “two stops” and so on. From my experience this increases the contrast and removes…

    A day at the Südfriedhof

    A week ago I packed my Fujifilm X-Pro1 and Revue 6×6 and headed to the Südfriedhof in Wiesbaden, a huge cemetery I’ve wanted to visit since moving to Wiesbaden. I’ve always liked going to graveyards and enjoying the silence, looking at the different graves and searching for the oldest. Here are some of the photos,…

    24HourProject 2022

    The 24HourProject is a global photography event where photographers publish one photo every hour to document the world around us and raise awareness for climate change. My friend Marian (@m.von.d on Instagram) was the Organiser and Ambassador for Frankfurt so I joined in and prepared for a day of photography in Frankfurt, excited for both…

  • Lunch break walk

    Lunch break walk

    In my lunch break I took my Fujifilm X30 for a walk through town and tested a new black and white preset I created. I love the strong blacks and subtle, almost soft greys it gives.
